0,33l fles thuis. Donker amber kleurig vol gistdeeltjes met een flinke crème schuimkraag. Aangenaam aroma met gist, cacao en aromahop. Smaak is mooi vol begint zoet en daarna mooi bitter redelijk volle body tikkeltje trekkend mondgevoel.

ShivanDragon (2001) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2014
donker rood helder met schuimige witte kraag de smaken zijn redelijk aan de zoete kant, matig bitter, licht fruitig, licht moutig, caramel. de eerste indruk is zacht, hoppig maar mis de specifieke ipa aroma’s zoals de tropische fruiten, de citrus en de grapefruit. ´t is meer een grassige/hopbittere/zoet -zachte bier. zoals meerdere Belgische IPA’s is deze ook niet zo stevig gehopt als ik gehoopt had. ondanks dat smaakt het wel weer redelijk

ogreface (1387) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 4, 2014
Igen zavaros, rezvoros, vekony habbal. Illata gyumis, aszalt, komlos. Ez erdekes, nem rossz, de nem ipa.

BeerViking (2913) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle pours dark amber-brown with a thick cream coloured foam and a spicy, hoppy, honeyed and lightly musty nose. Initially sweet and fruity, then rapidly drying with bitter earthy and vegetal notes followed by spicy hoppiness and a little caramel returning in the earthy bitter finish. A nice example of a Belgian IPA.

shoulderbroken (2475) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle from the Craft webshop. Dark amber colour, small golden head. Aroma is sweet but lightly hoppy, grassy, malty. Taste is pleasantly bitter, decent maltiness, bit of citrus, grassy, bit of lemon, caramel and lightly spicy. Different from how I remember it, but pretty nice still. Definitely more malty than hoppy.

Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Pours a light orange/brown. Medium carbonation. smells sweet, sugary. Not bad taste, but not what I was expecting. Definately not like American IPAs. There isn't much of any hop flavor. Nice malty taste. Good but not great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
