Great ipa. There is a lot more going on than just bitterness. Complex flavor with grapefruit and floral grassy notes. Prickly soft carbonation. The 9% does not come back in the flavor. Will definitely buy again.

Ambar anaranjada de preciosa espuma abundante, densa y cremosa. Rico aroma acaramelado, naranja, piña. En boca es super agradable, de textura suave y cremosa y un excelente punto de gas. Y el sabor rico, de predominio dulce, caramelo, y equilibrio frutal, con notas de naranja y piña, como antipaba el aroma. Cuerpo potente. Excelente.

On tap at Moeder St-Gilles. Troubadour Magma 9% is a deep clear still gold with a rich fruity full malt character. Itís got a sweet and hoppy aroma. A bit boozy, sweetly malty, with notes of alcohol heat, pine & candied citrus. A nice double IPA .

Sampled a pint on draft then bought it in a growler. I am partial to a Tripel and my wife is partial to very hoppy bears. I think this covers a either a "like it a lot" from both the IPA and Tripel tasters, or it simply wonít. I would not refer to this as an Imperial IPA as it will disappoint people specifically looking for that profile. I do think it represents a Belgium Triple IPA, implying more of the sweeter Triple than a heavily hopped beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber-colored beer, topped off with a white head. Great hoppy aroma, some floral accents and hints of tropical fruits. Taste is perfectly balanced. The grapefruit bitterness of the hops are perfectly matched by the mild caramel sweetness in the aftertaste. Delicious beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber with a little orange color, frothy ivory head, fluffy waves of lace. Aroma of butterscotch and malt. Taste is full-bodied caramel malt with dried fruit and light yeast. Mild bittering enters on the swallow, but not enough to push the malt aside. A really well-balanced, full-bodied Imperial Belgian (maybe IPA). Recommended.
