Bottle. Cloudy dark gold pour, with a large white head. Fruit, spicy belgian yeast, bready sweetness, grapefruit, and some bitter hops. A decent belgian IPA. olsvammel (7226) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle from the Struise Beer Shop in Brugges. It poured a very hazy amber liquid with an orange tint and a big fluffy head with a yellow tint. Lots of citrusy hops on the nose, apricots, oranges and lemon to be exact. Milder taste with a less hoppy focus, here the malt takes more room and makes good company with the citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is lean and smooth with a thick body and medium amount of carbonation. A nice version of the Monks Café beer. psilosophy (782) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - OCT 10, 2011
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur Orange foncé, trouble, mousse très abondante et de très belle tenue. Dense, un arôme très végétal qui lui procure une amertume puissante, relevé à la mise en bouche d’une légère touche fumée qui se répète en fin de bouche. Belle longueur, carbonnation fine et importante. Une bien bonne IPA! Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert. Case (300) - GERMANY - OCT 10, 2011
Pours a beautiful dark orange-red with huge off-white head. Strong pungeant hops aroma with grass, grapefruit and lemons. Taste is dry and grassy balanced by some caramel malts and slightly spicy Belgian yeast. Lots of citrus, lemony, some orange. Strong carbonation. Bitterness is rather subdued. Overall a really solid Belgian IPA. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011

Ok, lets sip this hop juice... first sip is dry pine resins and fruity bitterness ..few more offer depth of sweet malty caramel accents, woody mustiness ,spiceiness, flowers blooming .....
As good as your typical American IPA.
Bottle from Craft Ale. Pours turbid dull orangy with minimal head. This one gushed tremendously upon opening, and for a full minute afterward. The nose is rye malt, fruity hops, caramel. Tastes malty, fruity, with some caramel, yeasty spice, and floral notes. Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle @ Beerts Bierhuis, Utrecht. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head and lacings. Nose is hops and yeast. Not really THAT inviting nor fresh. Flavor is dry, grassy and yeasty. Really dry and quite hoppy. Medium and smooth body. Ends dry. Good. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2011
It pours amber dark honey with a small white head, not much head retention at all. It smells like light sweet and earthy hops. The flavor is so juicy with a welcoming and palatable hop bitterness. The body is just right with a blend of a crisp and syrupy ale right one. Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 25, 2011
Light brown coloured beer with average carbonation and a large off white head. Stronger fruity hopflower bitter hinted aroma. Full palate. Finish is bitter hoppy with a longer sweet dry hoppy hinted ending. Very good. phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2011
330 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a hazy, dull orange-amber color with a huge, frothy off-white head that leaves spots of lace while settling into a thin cap. Aroma of herbal hops, dusty funk, dry grains, hay, rye, wheat, and Belgian yeast. Flavor of straw, funk, rye, sweet malts, tea, Belgian yeast, and some citrus peel. Lingering mustiness and bitterness, but not overwhelmingly so. Light-medium bodied, with a grainy, funky, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I liked this more and more as it went down. Really nice IPA.
