Nocturne (764) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Hazy orange shade with a fluffy white cap. Nice lacing too. Smells of caramel and apricot jam and follows that up in the taste. Doesn’t have the big pine notes or the huge bitterness of some American IPAs, although it’s not to my mind "Belgian" in too many ways. Trying to pigeonhole it proves difficult but it’s just a nice IPA on its own terms.

ruigo (1062) - PORTUGAL - MAY 11, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle from a friend. Pours a hazy orangish golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, yeasty, citrus, fruity and slightly malty. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is a well balance between bitter and sweet, with a dry finish. No trace of the alcohol. Overall, a very good beer than I will sure taste again.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Location: Draft at Max’s on Broad, 5/3/14

Aroma: The aroma has some citrus hops, malty notes, and some yeast
Appearance: This one pours an unclear reddish-orange color with a beige head and average lace
Flavor: It has a flavor of citrus hops and yeast, with some malty flavors as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent mouthfeel, and a somewhat dry finish
Overall Impression: This one is almost liked a hoppy version of a Belgian Blonde Ale. It works okay, but it wasn’t a favorite for me.

Hazy amber with a creamy top. A hint of mango in the scent. Lots of hops. Floral, exotic fruit, citrus. Bitterness dominates the finish at first but it evens out gradually.

The aroma has malt, caramel, resin. Appearance and aroma go well together: a hazy caramel-like orange. The taste is sweet with a mildly bitter finish. "Magma" definitely describes the palate, it seems thicker than other beers, like syrup, also because of the average carbonation. The taste masks the high alcohol rate. A special beer of which you shouldn’t drink two in a row.

SimonBeer (101) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
(Drinking date: 27 April 2014) Slightly hazy orange beer. Lovely hoppy aroma, reminds me of strawberries. Could have been more intense. Bitter and sweet taste. Sweet at the beginning and then a bitter aftertaste. A bit of a thicker mouthfeel with medium carbonation. This beer is OK, but nothing special. There are much better double IPA’s, which a much more intense hoppy aroma and taste. Total score: 3.5
