Had the beer during the 2016 Kompaan Bloedbroeder festival. The beer looks delicious. It has some typical IPA looks. The color is a light orangy yellow, with a nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice little layer of white foam is formed. The bulk collapses quickly, leaving a thin drape.
The smell is amazing. It reminds me of Dublin and the Irish IPA’s I’ve had there. Amazing smell. I smell lovely sweet and lightly sour aroma’s of citrus fruits, including grapefruit and lemon zest, and a nice hint of passionfruit. I immediately feel like I’m in Ireland again, because most Irish pale ales have the same fruity hop characters. The hops are lovely, very aromatic and rich and well balanced. They are full of smell, but gentle.
The taste is the same. Irish pale ale all over. There is hoppy grapefruit, passion fruit and other citrus fruits. Also some lovely bitter touches of hops and some ginger. Perfect balance.
The palate is fine. Nice and smooth. All in all, a very good IPA. Good job. I love it. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - APR 6, 2017
Super hazy IPA. A bit of a funky nose and flavor. Not real smooth. Wanted more from St George. Benzai (15711) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2017
Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub. Clear orange to light amber color, medium sized white to off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma and flavor both have malts, hops, sort of fruity but not the fruitiness I prefer, it reminds me of orange, orangepeel and apricot. Possibly brett as well. Meh.

Can: Poured golden with white head. Nice hoppy bouquet of floral. Taste was soft drinkable hops. mikeymike (75) - Kansas, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Can from Safeway in Astoria. Aroma is pine and citrus. 2" head when poured into a shaker pint. Color was golden straw and very hazy. Taste is very bitter hop flavored with a dry bitter end. Overall a good west coast IPA that I always manage to pick up when I’m in the Portland area.
