Martin’s IPA onstond uit de pure passie van brouwers die vanuit de beste brouwerstraditie blijven streven naar kwaliteit. Met zijn droge en bijzondere hopsmaak en zijn hergisting op fles, positioneert Martin’s IPA zich duidelijk tussen de beste Belgische bieren in zijn categorie. De zeer aparte stijl is toe te schrijven aan het brouwgeheim: de hopbloemen die aan het einde van de gisting worden toegevoegd. De Martin’s IPA hergist nog verder op fles en is jaren houdbaar. Het is het eindresultaat van de vakkennis van drie generaties Martin.

Lekker amberkleurig bier met mooie witte schuimkraag die rap wegtrekt. Ruikt niet erg door. Smaakt zoals het etiket vermeld hoppig, met zéér gebrande toets.

Ysok02 (995) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Belle robe dorée, mousse présente. Nez légèrement houblonné et pétrolé. Bouche à l’attaque légèrement amère, manque de corps, de longueur et de complexité. Sans intérêt.

Beertobealive (491) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - AUG 17, 2016
Pours a white head with light hops in the nose. Hazy and gold colored body. Medium bitterness and malts, not like an IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 mml bottle tasted on the 09/08/2016. Orange to amber colour with a Highly sparkling appearance. Aroma is herbal and hoppy. Taste is medium hoppy with some caramel. Easy to drink but maybe too much carbonation. Next one please!

lio88 (8) - ATH, BELGIUM - JUL 9, 2016 does not count
Beautifull orange color with a little bit of white foam. Aroma is very poor & so does palate. Correct bitterness and good caramel after taste. Not a real IPA. Looks it had dry hopping and that’s all.

If it looks like sweet piss and tastes like sweet piss, it must be Martins’s IPA. This is no IPA, this is just a brown/blonde belgian beer with sweet aftertaste like piss.

Muggus69 (2100) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 03.04.18 Deep golden body with a decent size creamy white head atop. Odd nose (for an IPA anyway) - apple, herbs, toasty malts, bread dough, honey, some yeasty spice. Full bodied, creamy sort of mouthfeel. Doughy sort of malt again on the body, seems slightly oxidised, bruised apple, sultana, touch of herbal (hop?), spice, pepper. Moderate bitterness to finish. More of a Belgian ale than IPA - maybe old?
