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.

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.

Muggus69 (2000) - 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?

# 3600 ersma: nennt sich „belgian’s „finest ipa“ “. hell kupferfarben mit mäßiger verschäumung. der geruch ist dezent süßlich. da erwartet man von einem ipa schon mal anderes. der antrunk ist recht perlig und bringt leichte fruchtnoten mit. etwas hopfen gesellt sich zur mitte hinzu. der abgang ist süßlich, malzig mit leichtem aroma von beeren. fazit: ipa? auf keinen fall. 10,7, 6, 7, 9, 7 - 7,25

33 cl bottle at home. Appearance: clear golden with medium white head. Aroma: light malts, floral notes, grass. Taste: medium sweetness with medium bitterness. Notes of sweet malts and metal. Palate: light body, oily texture and fizzy carbonation. Can’t compare this one with other IPA’s.

R4N5H (687) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
33cl bottle on 05-Mar-2016, poured into a long stemmed tulip glass. Flavour of caramel, light citrus fruits and sweet malt. Fruity, slightly sweet and fragrant. Lightly hopped. European in style - close to a Belgian style IPA, but not quite.

33 cl Belle couleur orange limpide. Fines bulles et mousse abondante relativement persistante. Nez peu prononcé mais houblon, orange perceptibles. En bouche, le liquide est frais avec des saveurs de fruits : orange, abricot. Légère amertume. IPA ou PAS, j’aime assez.

imdownthepub (12801) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle, 330ml from Beer & More, Brussels, Belgium. Amber toward copper with hefty white head. This proves to be quite an understated IPA, not really hop forward at all. There is a mid roasted, drying body, just a touch metallic with an earthy, leaf litter character. The hop note is dry leafy, earthy, some bitterness. It’s not a world beater but it’s okay and drinkable.

Grosse mousse à grosses bulles qui s’estompe rapidement. Arômes sur les agrumes et le houblon (amertume). En bouche, amertume, malt grillé et pétillance. Très belle longueur sur le résineux, les agrumes et une amertume relativement forte mais appréciable. Très sympa !
