sebletitje (7134) - 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.

Golden clear color, good head. Carbonation is medium. High body for an Ipa. Bit spicey, Belgian yeast probably. Good drinkable

Geokkjer (6239) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of peach, malt, some floral notes and herbs. Flavor is sweet and malty with some herbs and bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle. A hazy, dark golden-orange beer with a small, off-white head. There’s a touch of booze on the nose, with orange hints, sugary pale malts, herbal hints and pine cones. The flavor is quite sweet, with sugary maltyness, herbs and some pine cones. Decent bitterness. Full body and pleasant carbonation, some warmth. Lasting bitter finish with pine cones, herbs and some grass. Decent, but rather weird. 150314

Meilby (8551) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle 330ml @ Geokkjer
Pours hazy golden with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, sugar, yeast, and grass. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long grassy and sugary finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Ulysse (256) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2015
Aroma of common wheat adjunct. No hop aroma. Very surprising for an IPA. Bitter in the mouth at first and then sticks to the back of the tongue.

cmc619 (467) - California, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Last in Bink tasting series. Seeing more and more Belgian IPAs these days - and some, like this one, I think are a nice foray into the style, but still catching up to their English and American forebears. True gold, decent white head. Hop aroma is there but not prominent. A bit too sticky and overbitter for my taste.

JefVerstraete (1836) - Ghent, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle from Elie. Many thanks. Golden colour, white foam. Malty body with hoppy aftertaste. Some strange off flavours but not a bad beer. Easy drinkable. Ok. Not really an IPA.

Douberd (2902) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
(Kerkom Hopverdomme) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 7% Clear body, orange in colour, with a tall white head, good density and retention. Light lacing left behind. Aroma has floral notes, belgian yeast, light perfume, some sugar, light fruity notes of peaches. Taste is moderate bitter but the bitterness builds up on the aftertaste. Light peaches and apricot, floral notes, again yeast. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Seems strange at first but you can get used to it quickly, only the bitterness is a bit too much at moments.
