COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Origin: Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor completes the taste pallet of the gamma Carolus-beers. Name: "Hopsinjoor" is a wordplay to for one thing the several hops which were used, and on the other hand the typical character of Mechelen of Gouden Carolus: the figure "opsinjoor" is intertwined with the history of Mechelen (see: www.opsinjoorke.be/Opsinjoorke/opsinjoor.htm). Kind of hops: 4 types of hops are used: Golding, Spalt, Hallertau and Saaz. These hops were fractioned at several times in the cooking process in order to keep a maximum of aroma. Regarding to taste we can say that the beer has a gentle, but nevertheless bitter aftertaste. Gold-yellow colour. Hoppy aroma. 50 IBU / 18.6 Plato

Muggus69 (1553) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2015
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 16/10/2016 Certainly looks the part - hazy orange-straw body with big creamy head holding atop. Moderate intensity nose - spicy, herbal, lemon citrus, slightly woody hop character, light toasty malt & peppery yeast undertones. Full body, smooth slightly velvety texture, carbonation is high. Opens out a bit more on the body - toasted cereal malts, pepper, lemon, herbs, grass, clove - rather tasty really, firm bitterness, well done. Nice stuff, good to see some European hops being showcased in an IPA

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2015 Pana spora, średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do nieregularnej pierzynki ładnie zdobiąc przy tym szkło. Barwa żółto złota, mętna. Zapach ciekawy - charakterystyczny belgijski aromat brzoskwiń, ziół i przypraw miesza się z trawą cytrynową, delikatnymi cytrusami (pomarańcze, limonki), marakują, kwiatami i herbatnikami. Nie jest bardzo intensywny ale niezwykle czysty i przyjemny, daje zapowiedź świetnego trunku. W smaku półsłodkie, fajna owocowość ponczu z dodatkiem różowego wina, wyraźny pieprz (czarny i czerwony), biszkopty i landrynki. Chmielowo-goryczkowa kontra zaznaczona, aczkolwiek te 50 IBU niewyczuwalne w natłoku różnych doznań. W afterteasie likier ananasowy, pikantność i trawiastość oraz rozgrzewanie w przełyku od alkoholu. Gratka dla wielbicieli piw belgijskich w nowofalowym wydaniu. Hopsinjoor może smakować i craftowym beer geekom i zatwardziałym tradycjonalistom. Jest tu klasyczny rdzeń belgijskich jasnych mocnych ALE oraz sznyt chmielowego szaleństwa. Pijalność całkiem niezła, zważywszy na 8% alkocholu - dobre i na lato i na zimę ;)

jamaty (1335) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Color miel muy bonito, turbia. Bastante espuma que desaparece pronto, pero que acompaña el vaso en cada trago. Gran aroma, muy intenso, acaramelado y sobre todo a uvas. En boca, carbonatacion media y mucho cuerpo. Compleja. Gran mezcla de frutas (sigue la uva) y dulce Para desencadenar en un final muy seco y amargo con marcado tono alcohólico que queda en boca... Y pide otro trago. Excelente.

Bottle from Cotteridge wines. Slightly hazy golden beer with large foam head. Aroma of banana, spice, yeast and lemon. Taste is yeast, citrus, spices, some salt, banana and malts. Moderate carbonation and a touch sticky. Loved it.

Ambro206 (273) - ITALY - MAY 2, 2015
Birra color biondo scarico. Schiuma abbondante e compatta color bianco. Interessante ed intenso aroma di luppoli nobili, spezie, erba. In bocca il lievito si fa sentire in accordo con il lievito belga. Corpo medio basso, carbonazione abbondante e forse un filo fastidiosa. Una classica rivisitazione IPA in stile belga. Piacevole, non eccezionale.

androman (975) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
33cl bottle at home from Mitra, Maarssen. Body is hazy orange, head is big, white, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is fruity, flavor is spicy, apple, biscuit, belgian yeast. Medium sweet, light bitter, light sour, light acidic. Finish is medium lasting fruity sourish bittersweet, light salty. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation. Not very easy, typical belgian strong ale, not too exciting.
