3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, BB 05/12/14, large sample. Clear amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, grapefruit, citrus, hint of pine, some spicy belgian yeast. Reminds me of troubadour magma. Medium citrussy bitterness backed up with some biscuity malt. Finishes quite dry, which makes the bitterness come through more. Slight thinnish though. As said, this reminds me of troubadour magma, which I think is a great fusion between belgian and american beers. Lovely stuff.

(Bottled) Wow - a real Belgian Imperial IPA! Has a pleasant, dry and lingering bitterness without cat pee. Could be more fruity for my liking (like the excellent Troubadour Magma), as this leans a bit towards the British IPAs. In its class, however, it competes very well with Mikkeller (D)IPAs, even beating many of them. Well, they share the same brewery, so no wonder... 2735

Bottle from Beer Tempel. Golden dark amber body with small head. Nose of hops, pines and some citrus. Taste very nice of hops with slight bitter edges. Finish very clean. Best IPA I’ve had from Belgium save the Elliot Brew.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent golden orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hoppy and malty with an average mouthfeel. Solid beer.
