During the British Colonial Times, the English exported beer to India. To preserve the beer for a longer period, extra-hopped beers were produced (hops maintain natural preservation and add bitterness to the beer).

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Pours a cloudy light amber/golden with a decent sized cream colored head that stays for awhile and produces nice lacing. Aroma is complex with grapefruit, passion fruit, pinapple, light malt and an undertone of Belgian yeast. Very light sweetness with medium to heavy bitterness, short dry finish. Medium bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Of all of the Belgian IPAs I have had so far this one is by far my favorite.

minutemat (4920) - 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 (3268) - 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 (761) - 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.

mateuszk (2512) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Draught. More blond to me than ipa. Golden in colour, clear with solid head. Aroma of malt, caramel, flowers and light spiciness. In taste malty sweet, floral with no sign of bitterness. Medium body, fizzy carbonation. Overall it was pleasant drink.

Oranjegeel bier met schuim. Smaak is licht friszuur en fruitig en licht hoppig bitter met iets van sinaasappel en grapefruit. Mooi in balans.

Bottle. Pours light golden with a thick white head which is pretty solid. Quite some malty caramel in aroma along with floral aroma, some orange and tart. Decent palate, though somewhat thin. Medium carbonation, bitter finish, not very long. Flavour is flowers, tart and orange. Quite good.

rdb84 (586) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
75cl. Light hazy golden orange with foamy head. A: medium ipa malts and hops, mostly, pine, lime, pineapple. Light syrup note, big Belgian blonde aroma. Inviting. T: medium ipa bitterness, light fruity, mostly lemon, light pineapple. Sweet malt character typical for a blonde, yeast note , biscuit mouthfeel. Medium bitter but definitely more pronounced than standard blonde. Finish is medium bitter, fruity, relatively long. Good crossover. Chouffe Dobbelen IPA packs more punch and flavor, though.
