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.

Martinís IPA 6.9% I first heard of this IPA from Belgium in the magazine Belgian Beer & Food. It pours a nice copper orange with a thick beige head that clings to the glass. The nose is interestingly lemon, earthy, malty caramel and has a sweet almost iced tea kind of character. Some boozy heat, a bready belgian malt/yeast quality while the warmth spreads out from my stomach. Really nice flavor: a bit boozey at first but youíve got chewey sweet breadiness, lemon, plums, mild bitter pine. Delicious with a soft rounded carbonation and a pretty dry finish. A nice surprise.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with white head. Aroma of malt, earthy dirt and grass with fruity esters. Flavor is much the same.

caesar (5792) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Barrique Odijk, BB 20.06.17, large sample. Almost clear amber color, medium rocky a off-white head with large foamy bubbles. Aroma is grassy, spicy yeast, bit floral and herbal, slight toffee. Soft sweet taste, tea, herbal, metallic. This shit is seriously bad. How on earth can they make this?

MarcoDL (2886) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Golden pour. Aroma of flower and aroma hop. Taste is very floral and smooth, with some esters, grain and Belgian aroma hops. Not really an ipa, more a hoppy blonde.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2015
33 cl bottle @ Cambrinus, Bruges. BBE 25.07.2017. Aroma is mild with some grainy notes and hay. Also toffee. Foamy palate. Flavour starts with mellow hop kick and with nettles turns to toffee, some sticky malt and ripe fruits. Gets biscuity and malty at the end of the glass. Too sweet and bland. Not an IPA, not even in the British scale.

BlackHaddock (4918) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
33cl bottle: BBD 20 Jun 17. Poured into a Palm badged bulbous glass at home on 20 Jun 15, two years before itís BBD. True amber body, smooth white foam blanket on top. Nice bitter hop balance with sweet maltiness in the mouth, the aroma fruity and slightly yeasty. I liked it.

Daanminator (295) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2015
Helaas liep het bier al uit het flesje bij openen wat ik altijd een kwalijke zaak vindt. Bier zelf heeft een mooie schuimkraag. Kleur is mooi troebel zoals je mag verwachten. Aroma is bloemig. Smaak is zeer zacht. Zou bijna durven te zeggen dat dit geen ipa is zo zacht. Wel lekker daarintegen. Smaak blijft heerlijk lang hangen in de mond. Nasmaak heeft wat meer ipa in zich waardoor het bier zijn naam toch weer wat eer aandoet.

hohops (514) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Appearance- tries to escape the bottle before pouring. Slightly hazy amber, carbonation, a one-two finger solid white head. Aroma- creamy malt, spice hints, some tropical fruit, pineapple, hop resin. Taste- mango, orange, pineapple, hop undertones, vague undertones of biscuity malt. Fruity finish. Lacking the hop bitterness youíd expect.

Aethien (38) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2015
It says Belgiumís "Finest IPA"ģ on the label and you should definitely read those quotation marks as indicating of sarcasm because this beer has nothing whatsoever to do with IPA nor is it in any way fine. The list of ingredients says everything: Water, Malted barley, sugar, corn, barley, hops, yeast. Hops come in far behind sugar and corn which is why this beer tastes like a rotten lager. Completely undrinkable.
