Case (300) - GERMANY - OCT 10, 2011
Pours a beautiful dark orange-red with huge off-white head. Strong pungeant hops aroma with grass, grapefruit and lemons. Taste is dry and grassy balanced by some caramel malts and slightly spicy Belgian yeast. Lots of citrus, lemony, some orange. Strong carbonation. Bitterness is rather subdued. Overall a really solid Belgian IPA.

(Bottled) Ok a shitload of foam resides above murky orange and looks cool taking residence in my Chimay goblet . It smells fresh and vibrant, an important variable of course with any IPA ...nose is grass,wheat, flowers ,grapefruit, some rich malt..christmas tree pine needles..good fucken nose
Ok, lets sip this hop juice... first sip is dry pine resins and fruity bitterness ..few more offer depth of sweet malty caramel accents, woody mustiness ,spiceiness, flowers blooming .....
As good as your typical American IPA.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours turbid dull orangy with minimal head. This one gushed tremendously upon opening, and for a full minute afterward. The nose is rye malt, fruity hops, caramel. Tastes malty, fruity, with some caramel, yeasty spice, and floral notes.

Dedollewaitor (15578) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle @ Beerts Bierhuis, Utrecht. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head and lacings. Nose is hops and yeast. Not really THAT inviting nor fresh. Flavor is dry, grassy and yeasty. Really dry and quite hoppy. Medium and smooth body. Ends dry. Good.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2011
It pours amber dark honey with a small white head, not much head retention at all. It smells like light sweet and earthy hops. The flavor is so juicy with a welcoming and palatable hop bitterness. The body is just right with a blend of a crisp and syrupy ale right one.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2011
Light brown coloured beer with average carbonation and a large off white head. Stronger fruity hopflower bitter hinted aroma. Full palate. Finish is bitter hoppy with a longer sweet dry hoppy hinted ending. Very good.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2011
330 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a hazy, dull orange-amber color with a huge, frothy off-white head that leaves spots of lace while settling into a thin cap. Aroma of herbal hops, dusty funk, dry grains, hay, rye, wheat, and Belgian yeast. Flavor of straw, funk, rye, sweet malts, tea, Belgian yeast, and some citrus peel. Lingering mustiness and bitterness, but not overwhelmingly so. Light-medium bodied, with a grainy, funky, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I liked this more and more as it went down. Really nice IPA.

LOT 53/31/2010 - BB 31/01/2014
Clear copper color, huge lasting yellow head. Sweet, malty, a bit spicy taste. A touch of alcohol. Smooth yet to the medium side mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Sweet, malty, spicy, alcohol scent.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2011
33cl bottle from Struise shop.BB 31/01/2014 Léger trouble orangé, col blanc. Arôme est assez faible pour un IPA où le malt se fait plus présent laissant entrevoir un houblon très discret. Grains dont l’avoine rajoute un côté épais au palais qui quant à lui garde la présence de levure Struise, léger épice avec le seigle. Impression d ’un houblon allemand, et au final, une bière douce, trop sucrée et maltée. Un peu décevante, et donc vu ce profile, du mal à voir comment cette IPA tiendrai jusque en 2014!

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours hazy orange amber with a four finger creamy/foamy off-white head. Aroma of evergreen over warm malt. Flavor is fairly resin with quite a bit of light fruit; evens some floral. There’s a lot going on here.
