COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hamirubi (165) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2015
33cl bottle. The hoppy aroma’s aren’t accompanied by its malty taste: Odd for an IPA. But as a modest Belgian ale, one can appreciate the medium sweetness and light bitterness with long ending.

ChtiBreizh (50) - Rennes, FRANCE - APR 13, 2015
This brew is out of balance and not very pleasant. Some hops and some belgian malts but no consistency. How can this be called an IPA?

Maakun (1157) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2015
Shared bottle. Slight hazy orange brown with fluffy white head. Peach, tropical fruits, caramel, yeast. Quite sweet with light bitter finish. Medium bodied with syrupy feel.

tdtm82 (902) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
Bottle; Ale House Bottle Share. Thanks, Martin. Golden white lacing, raw honey and cedar on aroma. Some oxidisation is kreeping through. Good use of pilsner malt. A nice dry and biscuity finish. Good but not for me.

Desverger (2937) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 6, 2015
Bottle from Skjold Burne Vinhadel, CPH- glowing orange pour with decent sized white head. Aroma and taste is subdued citrus fruity and floral hoppy, lots of floral, flowery and grassy nuances going on, straw, some citric lemony notes, light malty. Pretty ok enjoyable easy going brew.

eduardovl (1019) - SWITZERLAND - APR 5, 2015
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 750ml corked bottle served in a pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange color forming a creamy white head with medium retention and some lacings left in the glass. Nose is sweet fruity and herby. Notes of citrus hops. Hints of honey and Belgian bready yeasts. Slightly sweet upfront. Grapefruit, honey and sweet pale malts. Medium to low bitterness for an IPA. Heavy body. Medium carbonation. Beautiful bottle presentation. Not a bad Strong Belgian Ale but difficult to call it an IPA, even for the Belgian IPA standards.

03-18-2015 - This is not bad, but not good either. Just an ordinary beer, in a nice bottle.

Étant habitué à boire des I.P.A, j’ai été un peu déçu de cette bière. La première impression est bonne, mais par la suite le houblon s’efface au profit du malt. Elle passe mais peu faire mieux.

nihtila (1296) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
3.11.2014. Foams out of the bottle. Clear golden orange. Very mild aroma, not much IPA in it. Taste has decent malts but lame hops, as is lame the whole thing.

Dorqui (2125) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 15, 2015
Bottled 0,75L. Intense amber clearly color with optimal bubbly aspect and a creamy head of discreet duration. Fresh hoppy and aged flowery notes, bitterish and crisp mouth, softly oily taste, pleasant refreshing and long hop final
