sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, - JUL 1, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 05/2017. Sérieusement, si on se veut de faire une IPA on n’estampille pas cette dernière d’une date de péremption de 4 ans. Bref. Couleur dorée-orangée, col épais crémeux blanc. Arôme présente ce bouquet houblons neutres euros avec un bouquet belge distinct. Pointe herbacée pouvant rappelé le thé vert mais qui reste assez distincte. Palais reste plus centré sur les malts qui prennent, malheureusement, le dessus sur les houblons. Me semble plus à une belge pale ale avec ce côté foin-herbacé. Amertume citronné s’immisce péniblement en toute fin de bouche avec une chute qui continue à donner le beau rôle au malt. Ça reste correct, mais pour une IPA, l’occasion est légèrement ratée.

Bottle. Pale amber color. Floral citric hoparoma. Hopbitter flavor, wit red berries, citrus and soft floral notes. Likeable.

33cl flesje bij café De Gouverneur, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 7% Uitgeschonken in Urthel glas Uiterlijk: goudoranje kleurig met blijvende witte kraag Aroma en smaak: 7 Belgische hoppen en een ibu van 80. Zeer bitter zoals al duidelijk in de benaming ' Hop Verdomme'. Echter aangename smaak na die bitterheid. Ook bloemig zoals een IPA moet zijn. Conclusie: lekkere IPA, waardering wat laag. Ook al ben ik geen echte bitter liefhebber is dit goed gedaan door Kerkom. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Small white head, clear golden. Almost flat, too bad. Hoppy, sweet, butterscotch.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Huge offwhite lasting head shrinks into ice cream shapes. Clear deep yellow body. Wooden resiny aroma with spicy fruity notes. Dry-bitter dried fruit and funky resin taste with waxy notes. Mid-bodied. Dry resiny spicy aftertaste with butterscotch and honey notes. Nice and surprising. Very different. (0.25l draft at Heeren van Liedekercke, Belgium.)

jookos (2064) - FINLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Tap@one pint. Golden. Floral, meadowy, citrus, light hay and belgy yeastyness on nose. Medium bodied, bitter, slight sweet malty. Fruity hops, meadow flowers. Pale malts, honey caramel. Flavourful. Almost too fruity though.

mjs (4543) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2014
(Keg at One Pint Pub, 20140727) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, Belgian style yeast and hops. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, Belgian style yeast, fruitiness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. Not bad Belgian style IPA. Bit one dimensional with very dominating hoppiness.

rosenbergh (6662) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Draught at the One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Finland.
Clear bright orange colour with a small white head. Fruity sweetness, Belgian yeast, mild hops, mild bitterness and a lot of sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is pretty much the same. A disappointment.

VastActiv (2768) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Tap at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Fruits, sweetness, syrup, some honey, hints of hops and malts. Way too sweet.

jonno (2287) - JAPAN - JUL 20, 2014
Queer, quaint and belgianesque to a tee. Super skunky leaf style - very medicinal with a big expressive body. Not quite as good as it sounds, but still a fun and playful drop.

shoulderbroken (1987) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle. Honey, Belgian yeasty, taste is similar, sweet, blond with hops. Floral, honey again. Good stuff.
