Abijen (2379) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, - OCT 5, 2013
Pours an orange unclear beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, citrus, grapefruit and a bit vanilla/cream. Tastes citrus and grapefruit. Bit vanilla. Good bitter finish. Average carbo, medium body and a dry texture.

Floral, de cuerpo intenso, pero amarga y refrescante. Una delicia de trago en pinta.

PapaVillum (826) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2016
Kobberfarvet og ufiltreret Imperial IPA med stor tætskummende top på 4-5 cm. En del gærrester i flasken, og toppen svinder til et par mm. Frugtrig aroma af appelsin og grapefrugt. Desuden noter af gær. Dejlig bitterpræget smag balanceret med en mindre frugtagtig sødme. Solid humlet bitterhed og ganske velsmagende. Grapefrugt og harpiks-noter. Middel til solid fyldig krop og en besk kort afslutning. Forholdsvis blødt karboneret med en olieret konsistens. Overall: Et fint belgisk bryg med masser af humle uden at være en åbenbaring. 33 cl, flaske, 8.0 % ABV, BB: 26/08/17, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blairgus (3949) - California, USA - APR 30, 2016
30 apr 2016, tap. Dirty orange and a bit hazy. Nose is spicy orange rind and mildly sweet. Ned body and mildly fizzy. Orange juice, some grassy hops, mildly sweet, noticeable alcohol. Honestly, it feels a bit flat and heavy. It’s kind of on the line between a Belgian strong ale and a DIPA. Still, fairly decent.

commonshawn (989) - Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2016
Tap at yard house. Hazy murky orange rust color with thick foamy white head. Funky yeast nose. Sugar, yeast, funky full chewy flavor. A bit of a weird bitter sour combo, but an interesting Belgian approach to an imperial ipa.

Gorbea (8) - Vitoria, SPAIN - APR 24, 2016 does not count
Aroma cítrico, fuerte corona blanca y persistente. Sabor cítrico, sobre todo pomelo y resisa, para tomar con calma.

bjakk (674) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - APR 21, 2016
Brown, cloudy, nice creamy head. Malt, bread and fruit in the aroma. Raisins, caramel, sherry, with caramelly and fruity aftertaste.

stijnemans90 (93) - - APR 14, 2016
Typisch Amerikaans bier. Wrang, slap en bitter. Het moet je smaak zijn, maar voor zoveel bitterheid heeft hij weinig evolutie.

Plovmand (7667) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 4, 2016
Bottle from Willems. It’s an amber beer with a huge thick off white head. Fruity, soapy, floral and light herbal aroma. Good bitterness and sweetness in the flavor. Peaches and passion fruit with a great malty backbone.

chinchill (3894) - South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2016
On tap at Yardhouse. Clear, orange amber body with a very good head and good lacing. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with citrus, other but fainter tropical fruits, and caramel. The flavor is also fruity but not hoppy by American IPA standards. Drinks like an AmericanPale Ale that’s loaded with caramel malt and made with some Belgian yeast. Not a bad thing.blends Feel medium plus body with medium ight carbonation.
