COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our I.P.A. is a dark-blonde beer with an emphatic, hoppy flavour. We add hops to the beer during the maturing process as well as the brewing to produce delicious aromas of flowers and grapefruit. A beer with a fruity, bitter aftertaste that lingers for a long time.

Nice round composition with both aroma and taste in balance. There is quite some bitterness in the aftertaste due to the added hops. Nice beer!

Drank from a bottle. Very nice! The hops are strong but not rough. In addition to the fruits, there is slight yeastiness in the taste.

bonkiedeaap (401) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer is hazy golden/blonde and has a stable and large white head. The aroma is full with hops, which gives this a nice fruitiness with tones of tropical fruits and grapefruits. Also a little spring blossom is noticable. The taste is light bitter and in the background light sweet notes where the tones from the aroma come cleary forward, very nice balanced. The finish is dry, fruity and the bitterness is long noticable. One of the better IPA’s. Very nicely done.

corkyrory66 (844) - BELGIUM - APR 30, 2015
Une ipa non filtrée, non pasteurisée à l’étiquette plus qu’appétissante … c’est important déjà. Dry hopping avec du cascade et du citra. Couleur jaune orangé abricoté, avec un léger voile. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale, et sur les parois. Mousse blanche très épaisse, avec une texture de blanc d’œuf battu en haut. Magnifique. Arômes de houblon superbe, malt clair, fruits blancs, orange, citron, pamplemousse rose, pointe de citron vert, ananas, légère pointe de poivre blanc. 1ère bouche soyeuse, à la très belle entame sur malt et épices, très équilibrée. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume très complexe, splendide. 2ème aux nuances fleuries, un peu d’amandes, équilibre superbe. Arrière-bouche sur un ensemble malt/houblon prodigieux. 3ème nez qui fait penser à l’Orval. On reste donc de longs moments à renifler (je n’ai pas dit sniffer …). En bouche, des nuances de rêve, sur l’amertume et le malt grillé. Arrière-bouche longue, très soignée. Longueur où se mêlent la passion (le fruit) et l’allégresse (le sentiment). On passe par les fruits, le bois blanc, quelques épices, des houblons très précis, riches et sensibles. Jambes denses et fines. Levure douce, fine, fleurie. Veine très adaptée à une ipa. Alcool très bien proportionné pour le genre, bien progressif, intelligent. Finale vraiment exceptionnelle, encore en progression. CONCLUSION : une bière hyper travaillée, complexe, fine, belle... Il n’y avait donc pas que l’étiquette pour nous plaire, mais le contenu valait largement le contenant. Une ipa de rêve...
