Hoppy fruity, nutty, Belgian yeasty aroma. Golden in color. The aromas carry through into the taste...the fruit is pronounced, manderin orange with a spiced finish. Fantastically complex.

Poured a nice golden yellow hue, somewhat opaque, with a frothy white head. Aroma had big pine notes with a nice yeasty sweetness to it. Initially the flavor was a good double ipa. Aggressive hop notes with just the right amount of malty sweetness to counter balance it. The finish had a nice alcoholic kick similar to that of a triple ale. Oh yeah there was banana.

Flaske: Fantastisk flot øl. Lysegul klar men med en del bundfald til sidst i flasken. Faktisk er det det eneste der er tegn på den belgiske gær. Flot humleduft, citron og mango på en velafbalanceret IIPA. Faktisk en verdensklasse humlebombe, med en dejlig lang dvælende efterbitterhed. I det hele taget en suveræn øl man har lyst til at åbne en til af. SPDickerman (1315) - Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Pours clear (until yeast) orange with a small white head. Smells of subtle citrus with some solid yeasty bread notes. Taste is bitter initially and then moves to a sweeter malt profile. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and average mouth-carbonation, Hoppin’ Frog Hop Master’s Abbey Belgian-style Double IPA finishes with a slight bitter tickle.

Pours a beautiful golden amber with a thick, pale golden tan head and lots of bubbles rising within. Robust aroma has yeasty, hoppy, fruity and subtle woody notes. Hearty flavor fills every nook and cranny in the palate with woody hop, fruity and malty tones plus yeasty, citrus and even herbal underpinnings. Firm, smooth texture is quite fizzy and lively. Hop to your package store or bar - you’ll abbey glad you monk one!

Bottle from fresh from brewery. This is my favorite DIPA hands down. The color is beautiful, a light amber with steady but not overwhelming carbonation. The head was 2 fingers tall, off-white, nice and fluffy. The flavor is really great, the abv is hidden so well it’s negligible. Citrusy grapefruit on the nose and taste. I could drink these the rest of my life and forget about the others. drowland (9191) - Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Pours a surprisingly clear apple juice/pee yellow with a foamy white head. Filtered? Wow, this aroma is all hop - super citrus, including hop leaf, fruit, bitter grapefruit, and sour. The flavor is mostly hop, plenty of citrus and leaf, with a nice malt backing, and just a touch of belgian yeast and flavor. I really like this... It’s like an imperial IPA but with some belgian characteristics.
