HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2015
London 2014 - September 6th, with harrisoni & Theydon_Bois - 330ml bottle c/o harrisoni and PhilL. Sorry, garbled voice notes here - seems it was mostly clear gold, average off-white diminishing head; aroma and taste - alcohol, overly sweet fruity malt, some grassy bitterness, but an odd vegetal thing working too - a little jangly overall. Reasonably thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel, average bottle carb, medium-quick boozy generically bitter finish - like an oddly fruity malt likka.

Bammers54 (76) - Camberely, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle, nice beer, but isnít what Iíd call an IPA, the Belgium yeast flavour is to strong and hides what hoppy dryness there might be lurking behind the scenes. That said a very good beer

nuplastikk (4902) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2015
11.2oz shorty grenade bottle. Yeasty thick orange body. Creamy. respectably steady white head. Kind of a noble hop aroma, but a real underlying citrus depth in the hop character. The lack of filtration lends a creamy mouthfeel which really benefits this style. Maybe the most enjoyable Belgian IPA Iíve had in some time, Iíd go back for more of this. No hairspray, drinkable.
