U.S Meets Europe S.I.P.A. - Collaborating with De Molen Brewery in the "Green Heart" of The Netherlands, we have created a wild and inventive recipe that is a unique blend of the best from both worlds! A super-charged Saison I.P.A. is born, featuring kilos of American hops to add a crazy twist to this European-style ale. The fruity, spicy flavors of this malty Double Saison are nicely complimented by an abundance of late and dry-hopping with the finest American hops.

This is the Hoppin’ Frog version, for the De Molen version go to that brewery’s page.

Bottle... Cloudy, dark orange pour with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet is of caramel, biscuit and spicy baked pear. Full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Sweet, fruity, spice-rack flavor and finish. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2013
Dunkles Bernstein mit feiner Crema und reichlich Hefebrocken. Süßmalzig-fruchtiges Aroma nach Mandarine, Citrusfrüchten und etwas Tanne. Vollmundiger Antrunk. Der Orangen-Mandarinengeschmack startet sehr, sehr süß. Der aromatische Hopfen greift zum Glück ein und verhindert, dass das ganze IPA klebrig wird. ABER der Hopfen spielt hier -leider- klar die 2. Geige. Die Süße drückt mit Wucht auf die Süffigkeit und erdrückt fast Fruchtigkeit und Hopfen. Insgesamt gut, aber da hatte ich mir klar mehr von versprochen!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 10, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Bottle: Completely muddled rustic copper with a beige head that reduces to a ring in moments. Aroma is sweet fruit juice, grapefruit flesh, juicy and gushing, grass, and some faint spicy esters on the back. Some toffee malt, too. Taste is extremely sweet. Sticky toffee and sugar crusted grapefruit flesh, juicy oranges, some mid-palate perfume and light hops, touch of pineapple in the finish. Flavors aren’t bad but this is a little too sweet. Not much of a saison or IPA, either... Huge, sticky body, light bitterness, but mostly sweet. Would be more acceptable as an American Barleywine, but also has that "old, huge, sticky DIPA" kind of vibe.

Hazy deep amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Nose of generic fruits sherbet and malt cream. Palate is smooth and viscous with fine carbonation. Smooth malt cream supports pleasant generic fruit sherbet, gets zingy before turning slightly yeasty bitter. Mild minerals before a smooth finish. Fruity aftertaste. Unusual and tasty beer.
