LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Ik heb normaliter niet zon hoge pet op van belgische ipa maar deze is wel aardig. Mooi bitter, licht fruitig door de hop, weinig moutsmaak. Prima

SylvainCFC (195) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2017
Bire blonde un peu ombrage, voile. Mousse blanche abondante, are, mais de bonne tenue. Dentelle sur la paroi. Nez doucement houblonn, fruit sur le citron, mangue. Texture paisse, huileuse, douce sur le fruit (mangue, fruit exotique). Presque pas damertume, houblon un peu en retrait pour une IPA. Alcool fort prsent pour les 6,5 ABV, en dbut de verre. IPA belge, sans excs, voire un peu en retrait. IPA pour dbutant ? Mais belle excution, trs quilibre.

Bontus (799) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle 33cl at "streekbieren" event. Not really from my area, but definitely my style of beer. Pours golden, aromatic hopnose, not a true exotic explosion but still nice. Clean bitter palate, nothing harsh, long finish. Good IPA.

minutemat (5259) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours misty gold, overly large white head. Aroma is fresh and floral. Taste is clean, smooth, lightly sweet Belgian blonde yeast, bready with a light fruity hop edge. Easy-going.

Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle, 750 ml from Beergium. Shared with rest at the grand tasting 11/2016. Pours cloudy yellow with medium creamy white head. Malty, light fruit, average yeast, bit spicy. Light to moderate sweetness, thin. Havent expected much, but still a bit of disappointment.

janubio (829) - SPAIN - NOV 14, 2016
Pours a deep orange-amber colour, with medium head and good retention. Sediment is present. It keeps a layer and a compact lace. Lots of bubble exploding. Aroma of tropi9cal fruits, clove, oranges, chocolate. Medium t light body, cider like palate, good carbonation. Taste of chocolate, oranges, vanilla, spices. Strange, kind of a cross between an IPA and an Weissbier.
