Hopverdju (1568) - BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2016
Donker roodbruin bier met beige schuimkraag. Geur: Aards, houterig, kruiden, peper, hop, koffie. Smaak: zoet – bitterig, karamel, kruiden, zoethout, citrus. Medium koolzuur. Totaal niet in balans, maar o zo leuk. Lange droge, peperige en bittere nasmaak. Dit als IPA beschouwen? Nee. Een complex bier? Uiteraard! Jerre (3826) - Waregem, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2013
Tasted @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival Zwevegem 15.08.2011. Abio (1868) - BERMUDA - JUL 11, 2012
Hazy redbrown color, with light beige head.
Aroma: fruits, hops. Full body.
Taste: caramel, bit sweet, fruits, hops, not balanced. (to much different hops)
Fruit and earthy yeast at the smell, combined in a weird way, a bit unnatural and chemical. Taste is not much better, earthy with some dark fruits and caramel that gets trough. Slightly metallic besides some hops. Should be good for about a year longer. Medium biterness, but not what I was hoping for. Borresteijn (7517) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2012
33cl Bottle at Lost Property. IPA? Wow.. Clear deep ruby amber colour, creamy off white head. Aroma is very sweet, candy, light hoppy, caramel, toasted malts. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, cotton candy, bitter hoppy finish with a grainy touch. Light to medium bodied. Not bad, but not an IPA by far.

Bottle @ Frape. Completely un-IPA like colour, deep ruby red to purple. Like wine with a small whit head. Underwhelming nose, bit soapy, soft and off-key. Taste is surprisingly goog and equally unlike an IPA. Very, very spicy, berries, currant. Aftertaste is good, but quickly dissappearing. Medium bitterness and mouthfeel.

Bottled at Pressklubban, Stockholm. Hazy mahogany colour, fairly rich head. Fruity nose with black currant and coffee. Mid sweet with medium-full body and soft mouthfeel. Nutty with some coffee, covered by a generous blanket of floral black currant hops.some dark chocolate comes through in the long, bitter finish Travlr (26198) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark brown color, creamy beige head that settles quickly. Aroma of caramel and nuts. Taste is sweet caramel with a toasty and nutty edge. Not bad. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Dark mahogany colored pour. Big, almost white head that fades quickly but leaves a bit of lacing behind. Big malty aroma. Taste of malt and caramel. A little bitterness. Sweet. Not too shabby. Much better than I would have thought from the appearance. vickey9 (1000) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2011
BoBoChamp (5878) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2011
