Ipa de 6,5 % abv, avec malts d’orge et de blé. Étiquette avec une native des usa, sympa mais avec une hache de guerre … prudence !! Il faut dire qu’après Nattelore et Eva, j’ai de l’expérience … Bref, mon exemplaire était à 1 an avant sa date, et heureux de déterrer la hache de guerre. Couleur doré légèrement ambré, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes droites au départ des parois, amusant. Mousse blanc cassé, à flocons moyens, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt clair, agrumes, pointe d’épices, fleurs blanches. 1ère bouche souple à la très belle entame malt/houblon, avec des fruits et un zeste de citron. Arrière-bouche ample, à l’amertume bien placée. 2ème avec malt, agrumes et tabac blond, dans un très bel équilibre. Arrière-bouche très agréable, longue. 3ème à la belle progression de la fusion malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche avec de belles nuances très riches. Longueur à la belle densité, ainsi que de grands équilibre et harmonie des saveurs. Jambes longues, un peu huileuses. Levure un rien épicée, belle ligne. Alcool tout à fait efficace, il soutient l’ensemble et l’amertume. Finale souple et élégante. CONCLUSION : l’indienne native avait en fait déterrer la hache de l’harmonie et de l’amertume … Reste à savoir ce que tout cela présage pour l’avenir des hontas, même si elles sont hoppa … Quant à moi, je fume le calumet avec elles, avec un verre de hoppa hontas à côté pour alterner avec le calumet, bien entendu. Pas fou le hoppa ...

77ships (8038) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2013
75 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2013. Hazy amber orange with a tiny creamy off-white head. Nose is full of Citrus, USA hops, very fruity, grapefruit and touch of hay. Taste is a blast of USA hops, citrus, quite juicy with some sweet yeast, slight sugar and touch exotic fruits in the back. Very easy to drink. Straightforward and delicious, way better than the previous Sorachi Ace version which apparently was infected. Thx! to the RB Crew for sharing.

kraddel (6178) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2013
bottle at gents bierfestival . damn, they have a sorachi version ? why the hell dindt i have that one yet ? this one wins the price for the best name ! and most enjoyable . maybe not the best beer of the event, but in full sunlight, outside, in a 2>5 -ish degrees, this is EXACTLY what i wanted . awsomeness ! pours amber, almost no head. smell is hoppy , floral . very refreshing, aromatic hops . light, so a very good drinkability . good carbo . maybe not THE most rememorable IPA , but if you have the chance on getting this, in good weather, do not doubt for one moment and drink the shit out of this !

Bottle 0.75l from Dranken Geers Gent. Pours a hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma is yeast, earthy, hay, citrus, cheese. Taste is dry, medium bitter, almost no sweetness, slight grapefruit and citrus. Good Amarillo hoped ale. IMHO better than de Molen Amarillo.
