4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 mL bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Yellowish-orange pour with a foamy white head. Aroma of lemon zest and wet grass with hints of Belgian yeast. The hallertau and saaz hops especially are notable in the taste resulting in mild Earthy bitterness and a clean floral and light citrus finish. By style this is a Belgian "Strong" Ale but the taste is rather light and quite enjoyable. Very well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Medium dirty orange color, overabundant pure white head that never drops below 1", leaving thick slashes of lace behind. Taste is wheaty malt that moves cleanly to the swallow, where noticeable hopping bursts in, followed quickly by citrus and spice that linger quite a while. Kind of a cross between a Belgian Ale and an American Pale Ale. It’s okay, but nothing more.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank with Hans, Vincent and Patrick at Cultuurcafe 19-11-2014. Did not like the beer. Unplesant tripel-like taste. Very much carbonation also, which further diminished the nice tastes and likeability of the beer.

Ottimo esempio di belgian strong ben luppolata, che anche con una forte presenza di lieviti nel guscto, lascia inuire leggere note fruttate e un buon amaro.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Huge creamy off-white head with fantastic lacing. Hazy pale yellow body. Aroma is floral hops, citrus and hay. Farm-like aromas, the yeast reminds of a saison. Very fruity, sweet, fresh and appealing. Mostly sweet on the tongue, followed by a nicely balanced bitterness. Dry finish. Slightly boozy, but never overwhelming.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a very cloudy pale yellow forming a huge white aired and fluffy head. Huge retention. Its foam looks whipped cream, leaving tons of lacings around. Beautiful. Reminds me Duvel in this aspect
S: Very citrus. Orange and lemons. Sweet grains, grassy hops and Belgian yeasts. An authentic Belgian IPA
T: Slightly sweet malts upfront. Strong notes of oranges, orange zest, lemon, grassy hops and Belgian yeasts. A bit bready and earthy too. In overall a dry taste and a stingy but not very strong hoppy bitterness
M: Medium body. Good carbonation. Malty, citrus and hoppy bitter aftertaste
O: Very drinkable. Authentic Belgian IPA. Recommended
