On tap at Moeder Lambic. Clear gold pour with thick white head. Aroma is hoppy, really tropical, perfumey, pretty typical nelson aroma, fruity tropical notes, white wine. Taste is slightly bitter, fruity, I actually found the hop flavor a bit dull in this one, which is not something I was expecting from this brewery. Maybe it was old. Very easy drinking, but nothing to write home about.

Bouteille. Une Ipa de belle apparence, nez interessant rappelant le Yuzu citron mandarine, une bonne Ipa, avec juste ce qu’il faut d’amertume, bien faite mais un peu trop classique manque de caracteres/ palettes aromatique.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330mL bottle at Brewberry, pours a dirty dark brownish orange with a medium beige head. Nose is very earthy, with lots of earthy hops, musty notes, and light floral notes – very dirty smelling. Flavour matches accordingly, with a super filthy, earthy hop quality that dominates. Very harsh astringency as well on the finish, though it becomes more palatable with each additional sip. This is a filthy one. Not the most drinkable IPA, but it’s decent enough.
