This beer was a pleasant surprise - which is not to say that it was great, but rather a unique and fun beer. Very thin appearance and whiff of booze made it seem like something in the Duvel family. Overall impression is of a Belgian to which some west coast hops have been added (plus the Rhub’ from the name). Not hoppy to the extent you would expect from an IPA, but a nice light clean and refreshing experience.

abemorsten (3035) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
33 cl vippekorkflaske fra Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Uklar dyp gyllen kropp med et lite og tett lyst skumdekke. Krydder, tørket lime, sitrongress og koriandefrø på nesa. Jeg ville kanskje tippet på at det var en saison fra lukten å dømme, om dette var en blindtest. Enda mere krydret i munnen med rosépepper, safran og paprika, men også syrlighet som fra citrusfrukter, det er nok rabarbraen. Medium kropp og en behagelig slutt med syrligheten som endelig begynner å ligne rabarbra men også med litt peppervarme.

Garrold (2141) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Hazy gold. Lots of lumps. Thin, lacing, lasting, white head. Beautiful, rhubarb and vanilla custard nose. Which, you might imagine, is what the brewers were aiming for. Whatever, this is light sour, and soft, fruity sweet. Drinks slightly tart, oily bitter, with a gentle, organic sweetness. The oily palate tempers the bittersweet elements beautifully. Finishes light tart, and oily bitter. Stupidly drinkable.

Beersiveknown (3560) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle at hotel from NYSA
Lightly hazy pale blonde with offwhite lacing. Herbal earthy, lightly funky with some tart rhubarb. Medium body, zippy carbonation, plenty of rhubarb in taste, balanced with a dry earthy yet tart finish. Well executed but not really IPA

minutemat (1986) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2015
330ml bottle from beermerchants.com. Pours a hazy orange with medium white head. Lovely sweet rhubarb nose, could’ve done with a little more in taste but still a great summery beer.

DWF; Bottle 33 l with a flip top. Belgium IPAs is strange, but anything mixed with Belgium yeast is still good.

mike_77 (3602) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2015
Hazy yellow colour with thin head. Aroma and flavour deliver the promise. It’s fruity and slightly tart with fresh hop bitterness. Very interesting.

tfredvik (1277) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2015
Clear, pale golden body with a large, creamy, white head that laces the glass excellently. Acidic and strong aroma of rhubarb and yeasty notes that actually reminds me of a saison. The rhubarb is the main contributor in the strong flavour as well, with additional generic overripe fruity notes, caramel and vague hints of saison-ish yeast with a slight barnyard feel. The taste is moderate to light sweet, light to moderate acidic and moderate bitter. There are very few hoppy notes left in this ageing IPA. Mid-bodied, dry and with a moderate carbonation. A nice beer, but I tasted this one together with my own rhubarb IPA (Rabarbrapapa from 2012(!)), and I actually liked mine better.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 3 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål, Oslo]

RudolphSayven (17) - Lille, FRANCE - JAN 12, 2015
Le nez tire sur l’agrume et la rhubarbe, un peu le sur. En bouche c’est pétillant, citrique, agrume et fruits exotiques. C’est bien fait. Bottle from Page24 Brewery.
