4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amazing dark cloudy orange color with thick medium sized white head that slowly diminishes leaving nice lacing rings. Light floaties in the bottom of the bottle, making the last pour extra tasty. Aroma has strong hops and malts, with a nice mix of natural floral and deathly toxic astringent notes. Delicious. . Same with the flavor- good hops, with powerful malt presence. Gooey, sugary, sweet malts. Nice to taste a non-American IIPA!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Much appreciated IPA-style Belgian ale, the first new beer from this beer company after seven years. Nowadays I’d consider this a classic, with a thick and dense, creamy head and deep amber colour with slightly brownish hue, hazy. Powerful and very appealing aroma of peach, orange zest, apple peel, thyme, citrussy hops, white pepper, aniseed, freshly grated ginger, pineapple, white bread, mango. Fresh fruity onset, rounded and full with medium carbo, very ’citrussy’ which is further enhanced by the gentle but powerful, assertive, elegant citrussy hops establishing a long, dry, very satisfying finish, a bit oily, on a bready and caramelly, solid malt base. Perfectly balanced and appetizing, this has become one of my favorites, as far as the commonly available Belgians are concerned.

Bottle by private import thx Alex A: fruity, caramel, herbacy app: hazy dark copper with thick white head and excellent lacing. T/p: full body with moderate long bitter finish. Soft carbonation. O: good. Not your regular double IPA but offers plenty of fruity aroma with a solid malt backbone. The hop is not as dominant as the description cited I’m suspecting that the travel could have impacted the brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bit syrupy Belgian triple, with pleasantly high hop level, but cant call it DIPA. Strong malt background, intense fruitiness, some spices, ginger.
Pleasant balance between sweet and bitter . Decent well balanced brew, would like to repeat.

Bottled, tnx Viktor! Golden colour with thin, fluffy, off-white head. Hoppy nose. Aroma is sour hops with some yeast. Flavour is the same with herbs and sour citrus notes. It is more a blond with lots of hops than anything else.
