From Struise with hops

Bottle: Big and very vast slight fluffy head, stays on this beer for almost the entire time. The beer itself has a hazy deep dark amber color. Smell is good hoppy, citrus, pine, bit sharp hoppy and green fresh sharp herbs. Even some light perfume. Taste is milder than the smell, some hops, light citrus, light fruity, sharper and light fresh herby, a light hint of yeast and medium bitter. Nice bitter (good warm hoppy) aftertaste. Low to medium carbo, medium to fuller body, and a light watery texture. A bit weak in body but the bitterness is pretty good.

11.2 oz. bottle. This has a gushing being head that too slowly dissipates. There is some suspended yeast and solids floating around in this dark brown beer. The nose is yeast, malt, and floral hops. The flavor is the same but the hops are more complex. Fruit and bitterness are considerably more tasted than smelled and rye is noted. The finish is sulfur and yeast. This was interesting and not bad at all. It is what I would expect out of a Belgian IPA.

The aroma is a bit strange, but enjoyable, it is very berry and tangy and hops aromatic. Even the taste is a bit strange and in it there is a lot of flavors but the ones I think emerges most is yeast, berries and hops, and in the aftertaste the alkohol. A nice and somewhat different beer!

Hermod (3875) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2011
33cl bottle, BBE 05/2014. Poured mahogany with a foamy, huge beige head. Aroma is very hoppy, grapefruits and floral notes. Flavor is bitter at first, very citrus and tropical fruits before some rye notes comes along as well as a little sweetness. Smooth, oily mouthfeel. Wow, great blend of bitterness and sweetness. Have to try this again.

dwyerpg (4755) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Some Belgian spice in an otherwise thick yet indeterminate aroma. Strange. Some light tinny hops at the end with a fairly thick strange body. I can’t say I’m a fan. It gets better but just not quite right to me. Maybe the rye?

Thanks Bobby Ray!!! Pour murky brown to grey with a ton of floaties and a huge beige head good lace. Aroma citrus, tropical fruits, yeasty/spicy, bready, earthy, caramel. Taste grassy, earthy, bitter, slight funk ,citrus fruits, caramel, bread. MF medium body fizzy carb. Overall interesting take on a IPA drinkable not outstanding a little out there but doesn’t all work well together.
