17NO12. 750 ml bottle from BHH, shared with Billy, served cold, tulip. Cloudy orange-amber with a so-so white head. Beautiful Noble hops, peppery, green, beautiful sweet honeyed malts, a little coriander spiciness, beautiful. Medium+ body with full, creamy effervescence. Beautiful Noble hops and honeyed malts, biscuit, pepperiness, gorgeous stuff, plenty yeasty, god this is good; off-dry with nice bitterness and a fairly long honeyed, fruity malt, grassy/green hop finish. Really good...on par with DV Lupulus.

Je ne me souvenais pas à quel point c’était bon ça!! L’Amarillo est dominant au nez et les oranges confites le sont en bouche, avec une finale rappelant les biscuits. Elle n’est peut-être pas très belle dans mon verre mais une fois en bouche, tout est ok et c’est étonnamment complexe.

J’ai bu cette bière lorsqu’elle est revenue sur le marché il y a quelques années. Je me souviens l’avoir appréciée. Je n’avais pas entré de «rating» puisque je l’avais bue dans des circonstances qui ne me permettaient pas de prendre des notes (rigueur exige). Bref, je l’ai rebue et WOW! On parle ici d’un classique oublié. Cette bière devrait se retrouver dans beaucoup plus de frigos. On aurait l’impression de boire une bonne bière belge, houblonnée avec trois joyeux houblons bien choisis. Est-ce qu’on a simplement houblonné une Blonde d’Achouffe? I don’t care. Si c’est le cas, bravo pour l’idée. C’est bon, riche, complexe et rafraîchissant. Le rapport qualité prix, dans ce cas, est de calibre «Unibroue» (les gens chez RJ vont me détester pour avoir écrit ça)...

Arômes de malt sucré avec de l’orange, pêche et ananas. Goût légèrement houblonné avec des saveurs de fruits sucrés. Finale un peu amère et modérée. Ipa standard visant une large clientèle.

Hazy beer with huge head. Nothing too special as the aroma was bland, and the bitterness not up to the sweetness.

HippyHop (394) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
Pour is a hazy gold, with a big, pillowy off-white cap that lasts longer than the effects of Viagra (so I’m told). Nose is a lot of Belgian yeast, but there’s also some citrus and spice from the hops. Taste is sweet, doughy malt, lots of yeast spice, light citrus. Finish is moderately but lingeringly bitter. This stuff has way too much Belgian yeast dominance to be called a DIPA, as many others have noted, but it’s still pretty darn tasty.

Bottle 341ml. Pours somewhat hazy golden with medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of fruits, citrus, belgian yeast. Taste is of belgian yeast, fruits, bitterness, citrus, sugar, alcohol. Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation. Overall: Good. Better than what I remembered.

Pours a pretty much clear golden (maybe the slightest haze but I might be hallucinathing things) with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is quite belgian in essence, fruity and peppery. It is also perfumey, almost too much if you ask me. Taste is of the same fruity/peppery/perfumey yeast and hops combo and moderately sweet. A good and healthy bitterness without being harsh. Some fresh cereals but again that perfumey and spicy ethanol. Body is medium and carbonation a touch high for my liking. Overall this was OK but I just wish booze would take a back seat.

Very cloudy yellow golden pour with a thick creamy white head. The nose is spicy - herbal/fruity flavour over a sweet spicy malt base. Some light noble hop character but this is mostly about the yeast. Really estery and chewy with a nice fruitiness but there’s also a clashy sort of yeastiness that doesn’t really work for me.

A nice Belgian IPA. But you wouldn’t know that by seeing a DIPA with a low rating, and picking it off the shelf at Marche Omni. It was a very good drinkable summer treat.
