Murky orange/golden color with an island of silky foam. Taste is sharp and biting, Lots of hop presence here (but not overwhelming). Beautifully crafted and delicious beer.

Nez: Céréales, agrumes, herbacé
Bouche: Céréales, citronnée, herbacée, épicée, amertume franche, sécheresse
Une Belgian IPA avec de belles notes de céréales genre pain frais qui accompagnent des notes citronnées et herbacées avec une pointe épicée dans le final le tout enrobé d'une amertume franche et longue ainsi qu'une légère sécheresse.

Rider0nTheStorm (109) - Ablis, FRANCE - DEC 2, 2017
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 (746) - 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.

biilz (233) - SPAIN - NOV 16, 2017
Аромат фруктового хмеля, немного цитрусов. Во вкусе преобладает вкус фруктового хмеля аля Ипа. Также имеется фруктовая горечь. Немного лимона, апельсина и цитрусов. Пиво достаточно газированное. Послевкусие фруктовое с легкой горчинкой.

EvNa (533) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2017
Sample from bottle at Logitech proefavond 2. Lightly yeasty, nicepretty long lasting bitter mouthfeel. Not the same bitterness as an IPA but more balanced with the blond-like body. Nice one.

3.8
Mister_Li (1585) - GERMANY - OCT 23, 2017
Leicht trübes Goldfarbenes Bier mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, grasig, blumig, leicht pfeffrig, bitter, sehr lecker.
