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.

A little bit sweet indeed. Just a small touch of hops in aroma and palate. What a joke? I suggest to drink this IPA in a sweetshop. A cake should be a best choice as an appetizer. B@H

Straling (359) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange colour with great carbonation. Fresh fruity orangy aroma, some floral notes there. Sweet floral taste, some grassy notes. Goes down sweet and fresh, lovely medium body with a touch of alcohol.

rok1024 (1092) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - AUG 21, 2014
Unclear orange appearance, medium head. Modest citrusy aroma of hops, grainy, untypical for IPA. Uneventful taste, gently rounded. Below average for its style.

Bottle at Aye Aye Club, august 19th 2014. Clear golden body with a fizzy white head. Clearest IPA Iíve seen in a while. Or is it an IPA? Other than in the name, nothing here resembles an IPA. Aroma of noble hops, malt, alcohol, taste is metallic with yeast esters, malt and a faint hop taste if you really look for it. Unpleasant metallic and boozy finish. This is as much an IPA as a dead old donkey is a pizza.

paulvanpelt (331) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Bier is zeer licht nevelig, goudblond met een flinke witte schuimkraag. In de neus is de hop nog behoorlijk aanwezig, maar dat aroma valt in de mond weg. Sowieso wat vlak en waterig. Licht bloemig, hoppig, karton. Smaak is niet zo bitter als van een IPA verwacht mag worden, ook wat zoeter. Medium co2, niet veel bijzonders.

gEUS (1041) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear dark yellow orange with a tiny head. Bland aroma, certainly not IPA worthy, rosewatet. Filtered and pasteurised. Palate is overly flat and sweet, light bitter finish, taste of wet leafs and nuts. Yuk.

UXO (184) - CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours clear amber with a fluffy two finger white head, excellent retention and heavy lacing. Nose is caramel and bread malt, grassy hops and a little pine. Tastes medium sweet with a mild bitter finish. Body is medium to light, with sustained carbonation and a somewhat thin texture. Not an earth-shattering IPA, but decent enough. I drank it a bit too cold, so maybe that affected the somewhat muted flavours. The lively carbonation was all right, though, and the appearance was excellent - but that might also be the beautiful new TeKu glass I bought with the beer!

Ik ben geen fan van IPA en zal het waarschijnlijk ook nooit worden, dit was dus niet goed voor mij

Orange color, with relatively thin head. Transparent and waterish. The aroma is quite sweet. The taste is not very IPA neither, wonder what kind of hops it is. Very flower taste. Not much (not even any at all) bitterness. Good palate.

Bottle. Nose is weak citrus hops, slight malt, mainly metallic. Pours a clear amber, nice head. Tastes better than it smells, medium sweet and bitter, a bit too carbonated, medium body, thin texture. Taste is still metallic; not entirely clean.
