3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Dark orange and clear appearance with a lingering off-white head. Big, mostly Belgian aroma of banana, bubblegum, earthy yeast, floral notes, light citrus and light peppery spice. Similar flavor, with medium to heavy bitterness balanced by light caramel malts. Medium to full body. Not very balanced, kind of hard to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 litre bottle, poured into La Chouffe tulip. A: Bronze, clear, one finger head, decent amount of lacing, lively looking. S: Yeast and phenols took on and beat the hops. T: Followed the nose, started out with some wheaty sweetness which gave way to hoppy bitterness, this was followed by some gummibear and finally gave way to some heavy diacetyl. M: Smooth, decent carbonation, medium to thick body and texture, slight boozy burn on the lips. O: Combined the characteristics one of the stronger pale Leffe offerings with SNPA, did a pretty good job.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color ámbar anaranjado. Algo turbia. Espuma reducida. Aroma muy intenso a naranja amarga y cointreau. Bastante cuerpo con fuerte sabor a naranja. Final muy amargo y duradero, en medio de un tono alcohólico potente pero bien equilibrado. Diferente.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color, modest carbonation, small head. Aroma: very refreshing, slightly yeasty aroma of exotic fruits (lychee, pineapple), pine and cucumber notes, some wood notes, hint of lemon. Inviting. Taste: slightly boozy, slightly creamy sensation that is dominated by a strong fruity bitterness. Also some caramalized malts in the beginning. Development is very bitter with cucumber notes. Full bodied. Aftertaste is also bitter, but the taste moves towards pine with a hint of exotic fruits. Too bitter for my taste. Also, my personal opinion is that the La Chouffe Houblon IPA is a better example of an IPA with Belgian ingredients.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ambar translúcida, espuma alaranjada, de pouca duração e quantidade. Aroma lupulado, adocicado, um pouco de caramelo. Paladar de amargor médio, dulçor acima do esperado. Uma IPA "diferente" com toque belga, não é ruim, mas diria que serve pela curiosidade.
