3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intricate lacing, clear gold color, strange ale to filter, nice belgian yeast nose, flavor is mostly belgian yeast, finish is alcohol and bitters, sort of like a belgian single/triple with extra hops on the bittering end, good stuff but far less hoppy than other belgian IPA’s I’ve had, and what hops are there aren’t outwardly "american", none of the the big citrus bitters (amarillo, centennial, cascade, chinook, columbus, etc.) that alot of the west coasters throw into these Belgian IPAs... Good ale though!
Couleur dorée; mousse blanche; arômes et goût maltés, fruités et de résine; un peu de levure; finale bien amère hartog (1) - GERMANY - AUG 15, 2017 does not count
Very floral and lots of hops, but that is to be expected from an ipa. The taste reminds me of perfumes, the smell of autumn flowers. Perfect to accompany a simple steak meal or to go with some strong cheeses.
Amber colored, with a nice white head. Soft prickly co2 on the tongue gemmedereve (15) - - AUG 10, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2017 Bière cuivrée avec une mousse un peu écrue, un nez un peu fruité avec un fond de litchi. Pas trop de pétillance mais un fond de bouche très doux, un peu de litchi très sirupeux. Bonne biere Grumbo (3107) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours almost clear amber with a lasting off-white head leaving good lacing. Aroma of hop, caramel, sweet malt, fruit, biscuit and floral notes. Medium sweetness and moderate bitterness. Medium body, slight stickiness to texture, soft to average carbonation. Very good. beeebon (462) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
From bottle pours a clear copper colour with small off white head. Aroma is complex revealing notes of toffee, banana, marmalade/orange, bubblegum, oak, doughy yeast and a touch of citrus. Taste is medium to strong sweet and a touch boozey but very nicely balanced with a clean dry bitterness with a decent lasting finish. Nice amount of carbonation with a slightly chewy texture. A very nice IPA

Light brown / amber of colour. Very nice brownish head. Stays up long and has nice lacing in the glass.
The taste is not so bitter as I would expect from an IPA. There is quite some smell/taste of sweet fruits as banana.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2017 355ml bottle. Pours brown. Banana, bubblegum, peach, apricot, orange peel, caramel. Big hop character, but with a surprisingly big yeast profile too. Very nice. Ronritter (776) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2017

Wow! What a delicous IPA! Very fruity, but not tooooo rich! Good foam head, poured from bottle at home. Best IPA I had thus far!

A nice Belgian spice and bite to this, too sweet at the end, otherwise excellent.
