Ik ben al geen grote IPA-fan en dit was geen uitzondering, ik vond het niet echt mijn ding.

Belle robe rousse. Nez fruité (fruit de la passion ?). Bouche équilibré entre amertume marquée et ce côté fruité. Entre la IPA et le Tripple belge.

ogivlado (5666) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -thanks Ludo from Magic Beer Room Zagreb for acquiring this from Belgium. Clear orange coloured, medium sized off-white head, quite hoppy and light spicy nose. Sweet malty,citrusy fruity and pleasant hoppy with notes of caramel and spices in the finish. Expected better, I think it’s a bit too strong on a fruity side.

Poured from imported bottle into a snifter, as befitting the style. Smells appetizing of fruity hoppiness and Belgian yeasty sweetness, moderate aroma intensity. Appearance is distinct and flawless, a hazy amber-tinged orange color, proportionate head and lacing. Taste is what you would expect if you mixed a Belgian ale with an American IPA- citrus hoppiness with the accent on the floral rather than hoppy notes. Takes the edge off the excessive sweetness tendency of Belgian golden ales. Caramel/sweet maltiness contrast, well balanced. Medium-bodied. Maybe a slight boozy finish but mostly clean with mild bitterness. Overall an excellent merging of styles with comfortable high abv, I would definitely try this again.

Silvan7 (668) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ambrata, leggermente velata, con schiuma bianca, abbastanza fine abbastanza persistente. Aroma intenso, di zucchero candito, luppolatura in dry hopping, tra il fruttato ed il resinoso. note di pasta di mandorle. Gusto dolce abboccato all’ingresso, dovute al buon grado alcolico, che la rende zuccherina, seguite da una secchezza mai fastidiosa. Amara, non molto acida. Un po’ spigolosa, non molto carbonata, piuttosto calda, ma meno di quanto lì ABV potrebbe far pensare. Equilibrata.

Hanoi (375) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Nose: Yeast, orange, sugar, slight cream, toffee. Taste is some herbal hops leading to toffee and malt then a boozy peppery finish. Mouthfeel is slick. It’s surprisingly light on bitterness, and is actually more like a traditional English IPA made Imperial than a new world IPA. Once I grasped this, the beer made more sense and I was able to orientate myself with it.

Iznogud (637) - CROATIA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Bruxelles. Pours amber with white head. Malty, spicy and yeasty. Not sure if something was wrong with the bottle but it doesn’t really taste like IPA. Was disappointed.

stevoj (2070) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Pours normal muddy black, but with rather full, fluffy dark beige head. Roast grains and hops vie for the taste buds in a nicely blended beer. Bitter finish.
