3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark golden color, with a rocky white head.
As this is a single hop my main interest will obviously go to the character off the hop. Aroma is elegant with a grapefruit touch at first and then a gentle pine component with some room left for some fruity notes. Flavor starts quite bitter, sweet, pine , the finish is well rounded and has a decent punch of bitters and is fairly dry.
I would like to clarify that this score is based on the character of the hop (and thus the beer) and is not comparable to a ’normal’ beer.

Bottle from Delhaize. Wow. Hands down the best of the Delhaize limited hops series (and what’s up with that?!?) Really nice. Big toasty orange body with huge head. Nose is on fire with hops and pines and grapefruit(!) up the gazoo. Taste also plenty of hops and fruits and pine. Lots in there. Really, really good - and at EUR 3.75 for a huge bottle!! Spicy finish.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2011 Bottle: Thanks to Joes:
Small white head, disappears quick, on top of an (almost) clear darker orange colored beer.
Smell is softer than the cascade version: some hops, soft citrus, smooth fruity and some sweetness.
Taste is nice hoppy and fruity, more peach, some citrus and peach also more bitter than the cascade but both are good fruity hoppy bitter balanced.
More bitter light fruity herby hoppy aftertaste.
Low carbo, tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.

bought as a recomendadtion by dennoman, opened at home.
not much on the nose by this one. taste is to much carbonation ( too bad i think it would be very nice otherwise ) and bitter. i definetley recognize the taste, but i’m more a beginner so ...i would describe it as a bitter IPA ( like shark pants or something ) but less extreme. more to let people get into it. its not a bad beer for 4 euro’s a big bottle, though !

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle@my beertasting – sample: this one is pretty big surprise, an American-style IPA made by Proefbrouwerij for a big Belgian supermarket, considering that pretty much no one makes IPA’s in Belgium & that no one knows what an IPA is, I really didn’t saw this one coming, expected even less for it to actually be a good IPA which it is, limited to 4000 bottles, clear amber orange with a white head, smells pretty fruity with pineapple, grapefruit, citrus & even a hint of cheese in there, bitter & sweet grapefruit in the taste, nice little hop bomb, pretty much what you would expect from a single hop beer, very round taste & bitterness with some malt underneath, citrus, almost unnoticeably mixed with something herbal in the end

Fruchtiger und frischer Hopfenantrunk mit blumigen und nur dezent bitteren Noten. Im Mittelteil sogar noch blumiger, frisch, vollmundig. Ein wenig holzig, der Hopfen wird dunkler. Würziger Hopfenabgang, wenig herb, auch hier kaum bitter. 8/12/11/12/11/12
