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.

Good carbonation, enjoyable bitterness, hops, malts, agressive warm and long aftertaste with alcohol. A very refreshing well balanced beer. Please pour it in it’s rightfull glass

thanatosti (1188) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ the bungalow in Vencimont, bought @ Delhaize, Beauraing. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Grainy aroma with faint hops. Sweet IPA. This is no IPA, this is a sub par Belgian blonde.

janubio (542) - SPAIN - AUG 5, 2015
Amber colour, two fingers head that fades leaving a crown and some lace. Smell is sweet, caramel, malts, dark fruits, hints of clove and tropical fruits. Medium body, creamy palate. Taste is also sweet, malts, chocolate, dark fruits, lemon and hints of tropical fruit and spices. Very good, but not what I expect frm an IPA.

Tognetta (398) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 3, 2015
Âmbar translucida, boa formação de espuma (branca), média retenção. Aroma intenso mas balanceado, misto de dulçor caramelado e um pouco de álcool, um leve amadeirado trazendo mais complexidade. Paladar ficou um nível abaixo do aroma, um pouco metalizado, faltou amargor que estava muito leve, dulçor mantendo a intensidade do aroma. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Aftertaste intensificou as notas amadeiradas, mas ainda permaneceram leves, álcool um pouco mais perceptível após alguns goles. Achei que pudesse estar próxima da validade pela ausência de amargor, mas a garrafa diz 22.05/2017. Infelizmente não atingiu à expectativa.

Salmaneser (74) - BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Hazy orange/amber beer with a nice thick beige head. Refreshing grassy citrus aroma. Sweet taste with soft bitter aftertaste, not entirely what you’d expect of an IPA, but very enjoyable.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3346) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2015
Martin’s 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 you’ve 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 (5828) - 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?
