pours light amber-coloured orange. white, quite steady foam. i smell al little bit hops, taste like an amber with extra hops. too much carbonation i’m afraid ... amberstyle aftertaste,
had this one from bottle wich was over a year old (yet, according to the label still good) but i’ve also had in on draft, there it was like an IPA.. so maybe it was to old.. could possible have to rerate this when drank from fdraft or younger .yet (even the ’old’ version aint bad at all.

Bottiglia 33 cl.
Ottima Belgian DIPA.....invitante aspetto ambra/arancio con bel cappello di schiuma pannosa e persistente. Naso dominato dal Simcoe con note dolci di biscotto a bilanciare gli agrumi e la resina.
Anche in bocca lo schema si ripete, entra morbida e biscottata e vira sui toni amari del luppolo.....bel finale pulito. Buona.

Wow buona questa 2Xipa che però non sembra affatto essere! Molto bella anche se con poca schiuma, arancione luminescente! Buon aroma ma nulla di eccezzionale! Sapore in parte di ipa molto più da birra belga fruttata, calda ma anche fresca, nasconde bene i suoi 9% gradi, molto beverina! Lascia un sapore lungo e fruttao molto piacevole! Ottima scoperta!

OK beer. Smelt fantastic but it was all downhill from there. Unbalanced beer that just doesnt sit well. I have tried in bottle and tap, both average.

My first review. Poured into pint glass. Great brown caramel color. Decent fizzy pale head. Great fruity taste and good depth of flavor, but I am a big fan of IPA and I am missing the hoppy bite from this beer. A bit expensive, but overall this is a really good belgian style tripel.

A hell of a beer. A successful infusion of Belgian tripel with an American-style IPA to my mind. Nose of that lovely Simcoe pininess mixed with an almost rye-like spice. Taste really full-on, with biscuits and molasses-like sweetness mingling with straight-up hop bitterness. Finishes nice and spicy with coriander, cloves and even a hint of pepper!

Yum. I just love the caramel overtones on this delicious IPA. It might not quite suit the IPA purist but as a sumptuous blend it went down well with me. Love the syrupy mouth feel !

We all know this an IPA, not just a hoppy amber ale. Indeed it is a really great Belgian DIPA. Keep on drinking it. I love this brew. Probably because you don’t find too much good Belgian IPAs and here it is one. Or probably it’s just great by itself. Next time I will describe my impressions because for now I just want to enjoy it.

Bouteille de 33 cl. Belle couleur ambrée, mousse abondante et de tenue très correcte. Gros arôme de pêche qui m’a immédiatement rappellé la Bush Pêche mel, avec une touche de miel. Carbonnation aérée, agréable en bouche. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.
