Trappist1 (646) - Diest, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2013
Donkere aangename oranje kleur, schenkt vlot in met mooie schuimkraag. Zeer rijke, complexe en fruitige neus. Afdronk is fruitig, complex, rijk, maar ook net een tikkeltje teveel aan co2, helemaal naar het einde toe in de afdronk een bittere toets. heel droog in de nasmaak. top-IPA imho !

Bottle, 330 ml at ’t Brugs Beertje, Brugge. Pours cloudy amber with lasting white head. Fruity hop aroma. Fruit, citrus, piney flavor. A lot of bitterness. Great DIPA.

Whoaw! What a great Belgian IPA... I had never tried it before and was very surprised... Hazy brown-orange colour. The nose is great, with a hoppy, flowery apricot smell. The taste that follows is amazing. Bitterness perfectly balanced. Only down side, I thought it’s a tiny bit too sweet... If not, it would be perfect!

Many thanks for this beer to JefVerstraete. Piekna barwa, miedziano bursztynowa, metna i piekna czapowata piana gwaltownie rosnaca ze az trzeba uwazac przy nalewaniu. Piwo smaczne tresciwe wytrawne i bardzo gozkie. Zaskakujace i umilajace wieczorek. Gorycz wyczuwalna i lekko drazniaca podniebienie, lekka jablkowa slodowosc, wytrawnosc podczas picia dominujaca jednak. Jak na Belgie bardzo gozkie piwo, a alkohol wogole nie wyczuwalny, to standard wsrod dobrych belgijskich piw. Polecam.

javiercrasher (273) - Granada, SPAIN - OCT 25, 2015
Anaranjada, turbia, con una buena capa de espuma compacta. Aromas a pino y resina, con fondo cítrico (Tomahawk y Simcoe). En boca amarga y resinosa, caramelo, ligeramente especiada. Ni rastro del alcohol. Final seco y con amargor persistente. Un cervezón!

Beerheart65 (1353) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Bit hazy amber, big light brown frothy head and good lacing, looks good. Fresh citrus and pine, like walking in a forest after rain. Caramel also. Tempting aroma. Soft round feel, medium to full, thick, long finish is nuanced with bitter citrus , caramel and flowery notes. Looks good, smells and tastes great, good balance, long enjoyable flavors. I really enjoyed this, great stuff!

veys (2) - BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012 does not count
it is incredible that this young belgian Imperial IPA allready can compete with famous double ipa’s. Color is light orange, a bit peach. It smells very fruity and hoppy. Peach and grapefruit. the taste is also very fruity with a very strong bitter hop finish. brilliant to drink in the summer.

77ships (7353) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2012
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Delirium Hoppy Loft // amber with a tanned white head // smell is loaded with fruity pine & pomegranate hops with a touch of candy sugar & caramel sweetness rounding them off, still definitely American // taste isn’t the instant blast of hops you expect, instead of slow start, touch sweet, caramel, candy sugar which blends into & moderates, fruity tangerine, pine, grapefruit, not quite a hop blast but very nice never the less / great idea, execution // one of the few & best American-style IIPA / IPA & the style in general in Belgium // medium, slightly caramel & hop body

manucorazzini (25) - Braine-L’Alleud, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2012
Beautiful amber color with white creamy foam. Nose is "supranatural" grapefruit!. Soft carbonation. Bitterness is very present without being excessive. Palate is smooth. Malty taste with fruity aftertaste. A Classic IPA - technically perfect.

Hazy amber, beautiful beige head leaving the perfect lace. Aroma is pineapple, mango and lychee hops. Full-bodied, bitter, medium sweet, very fruity (like aroma) beer. Great!
