Golden straw colour, thick head which fades fast. Sharp, almost metallic bitter hops on the nose. There’s a slippery sweetness underlying a very sharp bitterness in the mouth; guessing that’s the pilsner malt playing around the hops. Very refreshing, very nice. Would be good for a warm summer’s afternoon in a beer garden somewhere.

Bottle at Smokies Apparently I've tried almost everything they have here. Time to switch to Belgium. This beauty pours clear gold. Expected. And is quite bitter. Really unexpected! Like this is probably one of first belgians I had and tastes bitter. The yeasty part is in the house, but this show is indeed ruled by bitterness. Eyes opening.

Backlog. Zapach banan. Smak zioła, lekki finisz, ale niestety lekki metal to wszystko psuje.

Neus: granen, citrus, kruidachtig Mond: granen, citroenachtig, kruidig, kruidig, bitterheid, droogheid Smaak: Een Belgische IPA met mooie tonen van granen, vers brood dat citroenachtige en kruidachtige tonen met een pittige punt in de finale begeleidt naar een openhartige, lange bitterheid en een lichte droogte. Lekker bitter!

C'est une "belgian ipa", c'est à dire assez houblonnée (sans être très aromatique) avec une levure belge assez douce. Elle est légère avec une bonne amerture. Bonne donc mais sans être exceptionnelle à mon sens.

rotaman14 (785) - Wiesbaden, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2017
Appearance: hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma: grassy pilsner notes (from the Hallertau hop, I presume?) mixed with fruit-cake notes that are oh so typical for Belgian yeast. Aroma: bitter upfront, then yeasty and fruity, then yeasty, while the aftertaste is bitter. Overall: okay.
