Ibrew2or3 (8008) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2014
33cl bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a modest bright white head of foam. The aroma offers up floral hops, citrus hard candy and a bit of a peach like note. The taste begins with a nice degree of bitter grapefruit hops and tangerine. It slowly picks up a slender sweet maltiness and a faint berry hard candy like note that is sometimes there and sometimes not. Into the finish the bitter citrus hops fade some as it gets a little herbal, floral and grassy with an increased sense of hop flavor. Pretty nice IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014
33 cl bottle as "Highhops 6" @ HBF’14, BBE 14 22.01.2016
Aroma has apricot and some toffee typical to Belgian ales. Flavour has apricot, some citrus tones and grassy hops. Finishes dry with hints of minerals. Quite typical Belgian ale, except for the fruity American hops. Refreshing.

tderoeck (7814) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2014
11/VII/14 - 33cl bottle from Biernavigatie (webshop, NL) @ home - BB: 22/I/16 (2014-808)

Clear orange beer, creamy white irregular head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: lots of exotic fruits, some alcohol, bit grassy, passion fruits, pineapple, sweet caramel malts. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit of sweet malts, bitter hops, some citrus, grassy, bit medicinal bitterness. Aftertaste: very bitter and dry, bit of grapefruit, grassy hops, not balanced enough, fruity, nor piny, just dry and bitter finish. Ending could have been much better and was expecting way more from it, given the aroma.

jmgreenuk (7093) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle at Rootz at the Harbour, Den Haag. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is citrus hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a huge grassy hop, light pepper spice, light citrus, light metallic palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. One of the better IPA’s being brewed in the Netherlands. The big Belgian yeast aroma is not there and they threw the hop bucket into this. Well done guys!

Cunningham (6671) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
A fine finger thick white head, on top of a light hazy golden body. Fine lacing. Nice tropical fruity, toffee and mild grapefruit hoppy aroma. Quite fresh and nice. Medium body. Moderate sweet, and a fresh bitterness. Malty, citric, tropical fruity notes and some grassy notes. Decent nice IPA.
