COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
U.S Meets Europe S.I.P.A. - Collaborating with De Molen Brewery in the "Green Heart" of The Netherlands, we have created a wild and inventive recipe that is a unique blend of the best from both worlds! A super-charged Saison I.P.A. is born, featuring kilos of American hops to add a crazy twist to this European-style ale. The fruity, spicy flavors of this malty Double Saison are nicely complimented by an abundance of late and dry-hopping with the finest American hops.

This is the Hoppin’ Frog version, for the De Molen version go to that brewery’s page.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2013
22 ounce bottle. It pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The aroma is very sweet and spicy, it smells like citrusy hops (tropical fruit, grapefruit), sweet oranges, caramel, and Belgian yeast. The taste is also mostly sweet and spicy, the brew tastes like caramel, citrusy hops, toffee, sweet spices, oranges, and a bit of peppery spice. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall, very different and very interesting.

gyllenbock (4634) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle from Bierkompass.de, March 2013. A bit hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of orange, some soap, light spiced and some wood. About the same in the taste. Also some marmelade and alcohol. Drinkable but nothing spectacular.

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Hoppin Frog version. Pours a mostly clear amber with a finger of off-white head, rising small carbonation bubbles, and small spots of lace. Aroma of rich, bready malts, mixed spices, apricot, earthy funk, leaves, and ginger. Not a lot of hop character here. Flavor of boozy bread, winter spices, applesauce, leaves, dried fruits, and caramel. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a heavy, boozy mouthfeel. Intense. Maybe a few months past big hops but this will age for a couple more years.

SirLimpsalot (2135) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2013
@Eddan: trevlig doft men dog ganska len. Smaken är oljig fruktig och relativt fräsch men med en liten medicintouch. Tydlig apelsin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an almost clear amber with an off-white head. Spicy, citrusy aroma with a herbal touch. Thick, sweet and sugary body with a lowish carbonation. Loads of caramel, perfumy hop accents and a rather boozy finish. A bit much. 150313
