Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2016
Can with a Roy Lichtenstein-themed label shared by Craftmember, cheers! Regular, moussy, disparately lacing, slowly dissolving, off-white head over a very warm orangey old gold coloured beer with a peachy, even almost pinkish hue, lightly hazy. Aroma bursts with tangerine, mandarin flesh, lime zest, ripe rambutan, guava, ripe strawberries, marmelade, biscuit, unripe mango, soap, sweet dessert wine, grapefruit peel (strongly so), butterscotch candy, dark honey, grass, minerals. Vividly fruity onset, some vague green plum wryness underneath a coat of pear-, mango- and strawberry-like sweetness, softly carbonated, with a smooth, round, lightly oily body. Sweetly caramelly and biscuity malt middle, even a tad honeyish, supporting a delicately aromatic, sweetish, perfumey hop finish, orangey, mango-ish and fragrant, leaving behind a quite pungent, yet very elegant hop bitter sting, soft and brief but effective enough. Elegant, sweet-charactered new IPA, very agreeable and drinkable; I do not, however, see the link with Belgium, perhaps its the malt sweetness which is being characterized as typically Belgian here? To me, this qualifies as a modern, 21st-century, "international" pale ale regardless of substyle - this is definitely not just a "Belgian ale" to me and fully belongs in the (ordinary) IPA class as far as Im concerned - but I really enjoyed it, whatever its overly particular characterization.

shoulderbroken (3981) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 24, 2016
Tap at Craft St Mary Axe. Lots of caramel, caramac almost. Little bit of spice. Something not quite there, and no ipa characteristics really. All about the malt. I liked it, but judging by the description above, it might not have been at its best.

bierkoning (12800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle. Amber color. Floral hops hay and tropical fruit in the aroma. Thin. Shorst citric flavor with floral hops. Malty yet fairly dry. Grass in the finish. Not bad.

radassace (93) - SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2016
Had this in the back of the fridge for about 3 months, finally got around to trying it. Pours a hazy amber. Pretty big flavours going on here. Very typical candied sugar from the Belgian yeast. An Orange zesty marmalade flavour with a bit of tartness. decent malt and very bitter. A good mix of styles.

Pours a hazy orange with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus and Belgian yeast. Flavour has some spice to it along with orange, yeast and has a dry finish. Lovely Belgian ale.

JackMandarin (281) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle from local Aldi. Cloudy burnt orange. Off-white. Fairly thick. Good lacing. Esters on the aroma from the yeast upfront. Under-ripe banana. Light marmalade hops. A light musk of tropical fruits. Pineapple. Green apple. Id like more hops on the nose. Earthy yeast in the taste. Bready malts. Short sweetness giving way to a drier palate. Light lemon tang. Light pithy bitterness. Crisp and drying finish. Medium-light mouthfeel. Bit thin at the end. Foamy carbonation. Just ok...... I want more hop character to balance with the yeast.
