First tried at Bruges Beer Festival on recommendation of my friend Daniele (Rate beer member) and it has become a firm favourite.

Zymurgeist2 (1026) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle to glass at Cafe Rose Red in Brugge. First beer in Brugge at a wonderful bar. Aromas explode out of the glass of fresh citrus hop. Slightly haze pale orange with full white head. Amazing flavor as well for a great start to the trip.

lamf (75) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark golden, with nice white head. There are some hops in aroma, but it’s Imperial IPA, so you expect something more. And there is more in flavour. Bitterness is really high, which I actually love. But, if it is an Imperial, there should be more sweetness too. So, it tastes more like standard IPA. I mean, good IPA.

Geiserich (3385) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle: Sweetish malt aroma, caramel and candy. Herbal and resin hops. Hazy amber color, off-white creamy head. Flavor is light malty with light sweetness but mainly herbals and resin hops and a intensive alcohol note.

Sebilinz (504) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Light amber body with white head. Aroma is ripe fruit sweetness with some belgian yeast. Taste is malty with some ripe fruits and hoppy bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter balanced by some sweetness. I like these belgian IPAs.

witthatsbier (239) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2014

rdb84 (101) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber color, large foam head. Very (!) strong aromas of exotic fruits: pineapple, lychee, mango. Hint of wodka/jenever. Smokiness permeates. Taste is sour (again: !). Almost tastes like hairspray: all the sour elements of the aforementioned fruits battle to win. Subsequent sips are more agreeable and balanced (sweet/sour). Sweetness returns slowly in the aftertaste. Unusual ipa (and therefore I was anticipating its taste, because in general ipa is not for me), but too sour for me.

Alengrin (1719) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
One of the more ’spectacular’ Vivens after the relaunch of the brand, this one launched in 2009. Off-white, creamy head and amber colour with brownish hue, cloudy. Tempting perfume in the nose, roses, apple, bittersweet honey, spiced ’jenever’, mint and lots of herbal and peppery hops. Apply onset, clear and rounded, bit honeyish, quickly overwhelmed by a very powerful, almost agressive, herbal and citrussy hoppiness, creating a long, tingling, dry, bitter finish. Great Belgian interpretation of an American style, I’m all for IPAs and this one can stand the comparison with many of its American congeners.

Camons (5960) - Hasselager, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle @ Home. Pours hazy orange with creamy offwhite head, nice lacings. Aroma of malt, light caramel, grass, fruity hops, peach. Flavor is malty, little sweet, caramel, sweet fruity hops, little piney. Medium body, soft carbonation, light bitter finish. 230814
