Hop Ruiter (Hop Rider) has a full, almost rustic malt body, and pairs Belgian yeast-driven flavors with American assertive hoppiness. It is dry hopped, with two noble varieties which add complexity, delicacy and a bit of funk.

On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Light yellow in colour with a billowing head. Yeasty Belgian and yet also hoppy aroma, smells fantastic. It’s a hoppy Belgian ale, very floral with a decent lengthy finish. Enjoyable and very drinkable.

Belle robe orangée avec une jolie mousse blanche persistante. Le nez offre des arômes d’agrumes bien dosés.Le goût est très agréable avec des notes fraîches de céréales .L’arrière bouche nous laisse sur une amertume plaisante. Bière très agréablement surprenante pour une IPA: excellente!!!

Goûtée dans un verre "La Goudale". Robe orange clair un peu trouble avec une bonne carbonatation et surmontée d’une belle mousse blanche persistante. Le nez est sur un plaisant mélange d’agrumes avec une note poivrée sans intensité trop prononcée. Le goût est tout aussi agréable : fraîcheur et ajout d’une touche de céréales et de fruits jaunes. La finale est de longueur moyenne sur l’amertume. Pas vraiment une IPA mais une bière de grande qualité très réussie.

Me like. Nice golden beer with nice head. Light flowery-fruity aroma. Good mouthfeel, sharpish finish. Aftertaste turns milder but lasts.

PlutonowyMan (513) - POLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Kolor lekko bursztynowy, prawie klarowny, od góry piwo przykrywa spora, bia?a piana, raczej o ?redniej ?ywotno?ci z kiepskim zdobieniem. Aromat to s?odowo??, delikatne nuty chmielowe, raczej trawiaste i wytrawne. Bardzo delikatnie ale jednak, rozpuszczalnik. Smak nie przynosi niczego nowego, jak wy?ej, s?odowo??, odrobina wytrawno?ci i trawiastych nut chmielowych. Goryczka to zdecydowanie plus tego piwa, wyra?na i d?uga, wysycenie wysokie. kolejny plus to idealnie schowany alkohol.

Bill Becker (822) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Hazy pale yellow colour, long lasting foam. No date of any kind on the 750mL bottle. Oh, and it’s an oozer. Smells of bubblegum, yeast, candi sugar, a touch of banana. Taste reflects the smell but much milder than what I expected. Considering the ample abv. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a nice drop but shows up a tad under when it comes to value for the money. Worthy of a try.

Bottle at Porte Noire. Delicious exotic hop tart with pulpy notes of pineapple and papaya, clean finish, no trace of alcohol. A tasty surprise.

33cl bottle at home (Amsterdam) on 11-Aug-2016. ABV 8%. Hazy golden amber colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, citrus, Belgian yeast and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Medium sweetness, slightly sticky. Heavy taste of Belgian yeast, with fruity citrus and lightly hopped. Dry bitter finish. Slightly sweet, but a decent Belgian style IPA.

Mistig goudgeel bier met medium witte schuimkraag. Hop in de neus, minder in de mond. Grapefruit, cactus, gist, mout. Bitterzoet. Licht melig, medium tot veel co2.
