Martinís 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 Martinís 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 Martinís IPA hergist nog verder op fles en is jaren houdbaar. Het is het eindresultaat van de vakkennis van drie generaties Martin.

Wanne (42) - - MAY 20, 2015
Color is amber, with a white head. Aroma of caramel and some herbal/floral accents. Honey and citrus accents are also present in the taste, but there is also a metallic aftertaste. Itís more like an extra hopped speciale belge, rather than an ipa though.
