3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Huge yellowish beige lasting head. Deep amber body with carbonation. Deep hoppy peaches and mango aroma with mealy resiny notes. Bitter-sweetish wooden resiny peaches and mango taste with chalky grassy notes. Sharpish mouthfeel. Light body. Dry peaches and resin aftertaste with grassy mango notes. Nice, highly drinkable, but perhaps a little bit soft and mild. (0.33l bottle, Bacchus Cornelius, Bruges.)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Bruges. Rated on 16.07.2010
Aroma has lots of fruits with exotic hops and some caramel. Flavour is rather fruity with hops, some pineapple, grapefruit, caramel malt and hints of toffee. The hops make this very American and this actually has no Belgian character at all. Not that it would be a bad thing...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A dry, grassy, fruity and slightly spicy IPA with a nice smooth malt backbone. Very good IPA
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed approximately 1.5 year before expiration date
The look: Cloudy dark orange body topped by a large off-white head with good retention
In long: Nose of fruity hops (peaches, apricots, grapefruits and also grassy notes. Taste is has a nice smooth chewy not-so-sweet malt backbone reminiscent of an orange muffin cake. In mouth the grassy character of the hops have a taste that is just as grassy as it is fruity. Finish has a nice dry bitterness that is tasty but not aggressive. There’s also a nice grassy spiciness. Overall this was a nourishing, bitter, tasty and pleasantly dry IPA. A surprisingly good American style IPA made in Belgium. Another beer I would like to drink gallons of, because the only wisdom I have in me are my teeth.

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.
