It’s a decent and nice beer to drink, but it’s not really something special. It’s not as wild as they say. beerandmath (21) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2011
A great beer. I came across this in a mix-and-match pack at a local beer store that specializes in micro-breweries and was rather pleased. GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Incredibly enticing as it pours a beautiful golden brown, with a thick white head. The taste has hints of cinnamon, with a biter hop finish. While I prefer my beers with more malt, this was very enjoyable drink, particularly because of the earthy, spice after taste it left me with.

Appearance: deep, coppery amber with a nice off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma: strong notes of brown bread, cinnamon, allspice, some clove, ginger and dark fruits, with earthy, slightly dank pine. Taste: sweet and darkly spicy at first, like toasted bread with cinnamon sugar; then a wave of damp, earthy, resinous hops crashes in. Finish: bitter and piney, giving way to dry floral notes, with a whisper of malty sweetness in the back. Notes: DISCLAIMER: I hate IPAs. That said, I love Belgian beers. Since this was labeled a Belgian IPA, I thought I’d give it a shot. Loved the first half, which reminded me of a sweeter take on Ommegang’s Rare Vos. The second half, while strongly bitter, had enough character that it was tolerable. Not bad.

33cl on tap at BeerCentre, Manresa. It pours a cloudy light amber liquid with a nice medium-high head that lasts throughout the beer and leaves a nice lacing. The aroma is, of course, very hoppy, with green olives, hints of herbs and pine, and lots of citron (grapefruit). It tastes likewise, without the green olives touch and a notable but mild malty base. It has low sweetness, medium sourness and medium-high bitterness. Mildly-lively carbonated and medium-bodied, it ends long and dry, with a fruity and piny aftertaste. Pretty good IPA. mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2011
pours dark orange with one inch off white head, not much lacing in my glass, aroma is fairly fruity, apples and peaches, then you also catch a whiff of piney hops. taste is nice , you can taste the belgian yeast in there, pretty much taste just as the aroma, with a dry hop finish that is clean, nice brew. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle. It pours an almost clear, almost golden body and a small, off-white head. Peachy nose with citrus peel and malty sweetness. Sweet and malty flavor, quite bitter, but overall not in the same league as the aroma. Lasting bitterness in the end, with peaches and pinecones. Full-bodied, slightly warming and pleasantly carbonated. A nice beer indeed, pity the flavor, which after all is the most important part of the beer drinking, isn’t equally as good as the aroma. 110204 erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 11, 2011
Dark murky orange with very small head. Surprising aroma with toffe, fresh plums, apple, hay, light citrus and sourdour. Also a very little metallic, but nothing unsetteling. Yes it might be sweet and yeasty in taste compared to the crazy hop monsters of America, but that doesn’t matter. This is a still well hopped beer with a tasty Belgian twist. Reminds me off Chouffe Houblon IPA Tripel which I love. Surely recommanded. (355ml bottle at Cafe Belgie) Anvandarnamn (4) - SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2011 does not count
I really liked this beer. It’s got that characteristic belgian yeast-smell well blended with amarillo hops. Taste of honey. Not as hoppy as one would expect. It is nevertheless a very good beer.
