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.

Vaiz (3555) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, thick white head. Aroma of spicy malts, some saison yeast, slightly grainy and a hint of fruits. Flavor is quite dry, spicy and a bit out of balance. Decent body, but definitely not an IPA.

Tayeth (278) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2014
Geruch richtig scharf, brennt unangenehm in der Nase. Geschmack dann aber relativ OK, schmeckt nach Malz und frischen Früchten sowie etwas nach Kleber. Könnte besser.

mschaefer (21) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2014
Flesje 33cl op 8 graden C tht juni 2016. amberkleurig met vlokkig schuim, gist depot voor een deel uitgeschonken. Aroma's ammoniak en wat zurigs. In de verte dreigt een bijna urine achtig aroma. Smaak heeft de aroma's en een korte honing achtige toon en daarna een stevige bitter, de hoeveelheid koolzuur is prima. De afdronk geeft gist en bitter. Een interessant bier maar volgens mij geen voorbeeld voor het IPA genre.

The bottle describes the beer as Belgian’s finest IPA, I beg to differ... It is not a bad IPA but it’s taste is not very outspoken; little hops, little bitter, as a matter of fact little aroma at all. Still not a bad beer but far from good.

Japalo (1258) - DENMARK - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle@home. Clear golden. One finger foam. Well lasting. Faint spicy hops. Dry herbal taste. More yearst flavours than hop. More like a belgium blond. Very drinkable but not an IPA in my sense.

It appears clear blonde with an amber hue. The aroma has different fruits, grass, some bread and nuts. It tastes overall sweet with a very light bitter finish. The carbonation is a bit too lively and the texture too thin. A strange IPA without the hops.

This Belgian brew is a bit different of an IPA, in some ways good, in other ways not so much. Poured from a fresh bottle, this beer offers a solid and flavorful aroma, very appetizing fruity hop notes and some sweet maltiness. The taste is similar and likewise enjoyable, a fruity and slightly resiny hoppy bitterness, with some grainy sweet malt, and a touch of yeast. However a faint adjunct grainy taste is present also. Upon looking at the ingredients, maize is listed, and it shows in this brew. The body is unpleasantly thin and excessively overcarbonated, the color likewise is paler than usual, like an "IPA-lite." Still enjoyable overall, has a pleasant finish that reminds me of agave (??) but I probably wouldn't buy this again.
