Belgian pale ale.
Kasteel Hoppy is a blond ale of high fermentation, with a bitterness of 45 EBU. Strictly selected, Belgian hops are essential for the hoppy, spicy aroma, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Gedronken in Oud Brabant, pils kleur en helemaal helder, pluspunten, ik had hem hoppig verwacht maar helaas. Nie vies maar ook nie lekker

Surf sur la vague houblon. Peu de caractère ni de personnalité. Pas convaincu

Habanero (2595) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear yellow with an average, white head. Aroma is fryity notes, yeast and a little spice. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and decent bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. A nice and crisp Belgian ale.

tania_nexust (113) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from Kris Wines. Pours a bright gold colour with a lot of carbonation. Aroma is faint but has a little hoppiness and some sweetness. Taste is also very light - some bitterness, a hint of Belgian yeast & candi sugar - but not a massively flavoured beer.

lusikka (6208) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2014

Bottle 330ml. Pours light golden-orange with a flat white head. Nice Aroma of caramel, sweat scents, strong lemony hops, floral and slightly fruity, nice. Mouth feel is watery, very gently carbonated, tangy from bitterness. Very crisp, refreshing, light. Tastes sweet at first, honey, floral, somewhat fruity, slight citrus, roasted notes. Then strongly bitter, hops, bitter orange. After taste is bold and bitter, very heavy and sticky, unpleasant. Taste is repeating and somewhat flat, but not too boring. Nice in mouth but unpleasantly flat, bitter and sticky when swallowed. I am not impressed.

Mainuh_man (113) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours a clear pale with a frothy white head. Aromas aren’t as hoppy as the name might suggest. Alcohol, piney hops, some butterscotch. Fairly mild initial flavors, goes almost immediately to hop bitter, almost skipping the hop flavor. Some citrusy hop and mild sweetness towards end, but largely dominated by hop bitter. Medium body with a decent creamy mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, a not-so-well-balanced beer, that indeed is dominant on hops, but unfortunately, mostly just hits the bitter side.

vickey9 (470) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2014
Golden colour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, but not like IPA, a bit of hop, malt and grass. Body is medium, carbon high, texture thin. Palate is a bit of citruses, hops, malts, yeast. Medium body. B@H
