Tap at Zythos. Nice IPA, a lot of floral, grass, citrus, herbs in the nose, and a nice bitter taste. Wondering which hops where used for this one, but i reckon some cascade amongst others. Quite good!

rodenbachvintage (211) - Roeselare, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2017
goede IPA, Logischerwijs gezien zijn naam vooral hoppig, goed gebalanceerde bitterheid. Degelijk bier.

guzgorog (973) - FRANCE - AUG 19, 2017
Robe blonde dorée relativement limpide, mousse blanche moyenne. Le nez se partage entre la levure et des houblons aux notes herbeuses. L’attaque est sur des houblons herbeux, avec une amertume sèche et franche, qui se dissipe pour laisser la place à la levure et un petit côté acide, genre cidre. Longeur moyenne, carbo faible, corps léger, légère astringence.

Alengrin (5902) - BELGIUM - AUG 6, 2017
Belgian IPA by Jef Pirens. From a 33 cl steini bottle bought at Bierhalle Deconinck, with a nicely glossy label depicting a somewhat childish cartoon. Medium thick, irregular, egg-white head, moussy rim but breaking quickly in the middle; hazy peach blonde colour with warm, deep orange hue. Aroma of apricot, moldy oranges, some stale ’old hops urine’, wormwood leaves, soggy white bread, moist peanuts, banana peel, apricot, white pepper, green olives, bitter garden herbs, a hint of pine resin, rainwater, cooked turnips, ’witloof’, withering salad leaves. Fruity, soft onset, hinting at peach, a bit of banana and some pineapple, restrainedly sweet with a dim sourish touch, soft carbonation, slick and somewhat thin, if not slightly watery mouthfeel. Lightly bready and bit cereally, thinly caramelly malt base, lingering dried fruit hints, working towards a growing hop bitterness with a softly spicy, leafy and floral character, adding herbal (wormwood and other bitter plants) accents retronasally and clinging to the root of the tongue without becoming harshly bittering. Quite nice actually, indeed a ’hopped up’ Belgian blonde but more IPA-like than many other attempts at the same concept; just a bit thin perhaps, undercarbonated even for this style, but purely flavour-wise this ticks all the boxes for me. Not too much ’Belgian yeast interference’ and good balance between maltiness and bitter hoppiness, without the very expressive aromas from New World hops so feeling ’noble’ and classic while still being modern. I’m really beginning to like Oude Maalderij’s current brews - maybe I will one day forget the many misfits made by Gaverhopke...

Deser (20) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2017
33cl bottle at home, 5°C. Very refreshing blonde. Aroma is very IPA-like, fortunately the taste is quite balanced and not only hoppy. Nice Belgian take on the IPA style.
