Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Clear orange amber color. Thin khaki head. Couple dots and short bits of lace. Medium to bigger body, sort of slick. Light carbonation. Caramel malts are prominent here. Lightly piney hops noticeable, more so in the finish. Some hints of citrus. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. It’s OK, but if this is how belgians do an IPA, I have to say I much prefer the American way of doing it. I’ll chalk this up to it being a less than fresh keg.

Tmoney99 (10399) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Draft sample. Poured a hazy copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where surpassed.

JStax (2772) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Draft pour. Somewhat hazy copper with a thin white head. The aroma is musty floral notes with a bit of herbal tea like qualities. Fairly bitter initially and then it sweetens up on the back end. Light to medium bodied with low carbonation.

Zer0 (1126) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy golden with a huge white head. Gusher! Aroma is tropical fruits, citrus, yeast, herbal, floral, earthy and some grapefruit. Taste is quite bitter and moderate sweet. Medium to full bodied with a long fruity finish.

Moravius (381) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
Flasche (33 cl) von Struise, Brügge. - Explosive Schaumentwicklung beim Öffnen der Flasche. Unansehnlicher, grobporiger Schaum über goldbraunem Bier mit unappetitlichen großen Schwebteilchen. Die IPA-typische Nase mit tropischen Früchten ist nur schwach ausgeprägt. Antrunk viel zu rezent, schaumig-brausig. Hinter all der Kohlensäure etwas herbe Frucht, Tabak und säuerliche Noten. Der angepriesene Aromahopfen (Trockenhopfung mit Cascade) ist kaum zu erschmecken. Schwach säuerlicher, bitterer Nachtrunk. - Hier ist die Flaschengärung wohl außer Kontrolle geraten. Mißlungenes IPA.

zelden zo´n koolzuurbom meegemaakt!. glas is voor 1/5e ingeschonken en het schuim komt nu al aan alle kanten over het glas en de fles heen. Het schuim in de fles blijft maar komen, ’t is net een actieve vulkaan... helaas is door deze gusher activiteit ook de gist meegekomen het glas is, jammer... amber/caramel bruin van kleur, gist troebelig met met schuimige witte kraag. aroma is hoppig, floraal, moutig, caramel, citrus de smaken zijn redelijk zoet, redelijk bitter, licht fruitig, matig gemout, zwak kruidig, medium body, en zoals al vermeld een véél te hoge co2 !

Excalibur123 (107) - Soria, SPAIN - JAN 6, 2014
Color ámbar claro con levadura en suspensión y ligeramente turbia; abundante cabeza de espuma que permanece en la copa; aromas poco marcados a malta, lúpulo y notas herbales ; en boca entrada suave con amargor equilibrado, notas a resina y especias; pos gusto un tanto picante, cerveza con cuerpo medio y compleja pero con carbonatación excesiva.

Piero1987 (644) - Iglesias, ITALY - JAN 2, 2014
Amber with big head. Nice hoppy aroma with some citrus and herbal, but also some spicy from belgian yeast. At taste is a pretty bitter-sweet mix with a good body and fruity flavour.

Milky orange body with a huge beige head. Wooden nose. Light spicy and lasting bitterness. Heavy carbonation. Medium bodied and alco warm. Leaves the tongue dry.

ipamonger (68) - New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
I have the Cascade dry-hopped edition here. A slow gusher. Pours a hazy brownish amber with a thick off white head. Aromas of pine, resin, citrus, bit of malt, and bit of bread. Pronounced bitter, little sweet, but finish is also a strong, abrupt, dry bitter. Carbonation is a bit over active, may be characterizing the bitterness as a bit one-note. Good body. Hope the carbonation in this one is abnormal.
