COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bontus (625) - Flanders, - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle, Alvo supermarket. 33cl. Pours clear orange. Dense head, bitter / metallic head. Yeasty nose, bit citric. Very spritzy, very drinkable, good bitter flavor. Lacks hoparoma, a good ale, but hardly an IPA. Nice artwork.

psilosophy (478) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUL 2, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur légèrement ambrée, mousse moyenne de tenue correcte. Des ârômes de caraml, d’ humus, et une pointe fruitée de banane en fin de bouche, légère amertume et une pointe d’ acidité. Palais légèrement collant. Un peu grossier (mais dégustée après une "Urthel Samaranth"!). Trouvée à Roby - Menin.

mzaar (1504) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
Flaska från El Corte Ingles, Malaga. Bärnstensfärgad öl med stort vitt skum. Doftar karamell, citrus, russin och jäst. Smakinslag av karamell, citrus, torkad frukt och röda bär. Mjuk och runt munkänsla. På etiketten står det något i stil med Belgium´s best IPA. Jag undrar då dels hur de andra smakar, och dels om detta verkligen är en IPA.

SimonBeer (92) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2014
(Drinking date: 17 June 2014) Lovely hoppy aroma, aroma?s of flowers and fruit (strawberry, pineapple, grapefruit, citrus). The beer is darker amber golden orange with a big, long-lasting layer of frothy foam. Lots of carbonation visible. Fruity, hoppy taste, not really bitter. Taste of malt and bread, together with a bit sweet fruitiness of the hops. Also a bit burnt tastes. Burnt caramel, bread (toast.) Too much malt taste in the beer, together with too much of a sweetness. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. The body is good, good balance between thick and watery. Medium to heavy carbonation, bit too much. Overall, this is a strange ipa. It misses the bitterness, and is too sweet. However the hops are good present. But, what I don?t like in this beer that it has too much of a malty taste. It is like you?re drinking bread-juice. Overall I give it the score of 3.3

seynie (129) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2014
Dark yellow - amber with creamy top that doesn’t last long. Some burnt caramel in the nose, less hops than expected. A bit too sweet and sour, not that much bittters. Lemon peel and sugar in the finish.

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 10, 2014
dobre piwo, zaznaczone aromaty chmielne ale niezbyt intensywne. Kolor bursztynowy klarowny choc ciut osadu bylo na dnie nie zmetnilo to piwa szczegolnie. Piana ladna obfita i puszysta. Goryczkowe ale zarazem slodowe. i ta slodowosc byla tez w koncowce. Butelka 0,33

Unclear amber of color with a white head. An aroma of citrus, spice, perfume, dry and dusty. A flavor of hops, citrus, soap, spice and lemon.

kareljandebacker (14) - Balgerhoeke, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Lekker amberkleurig bier met mooie witte schuimkraag die rap wegtrekt. Ruikt niet erg door. Smaakt zoals het etiket vermeld hoppig, met zéér gebrande toets.

venom666 (296) - Alicante, SPAIN - MAY 31, 2014
Dark murky orange, with a white foam not very durable. This does not smell like an IPA. Caramels and red fruits are present, some hops are present as well. Citrus taste at the beginning, spicy and with some Belgian touch. Sweet, floral and some ginger. Strange "IPA".

Sten (617) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2014
Amber coloured beer with a white head. Balanced sweet, malty and slightly alcoholic aroma. Flavour is sweet, acidic due to the carbonation and acloholic in the aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)
