Bottle at rsted lbar. Very Belgian IPA. Malty aroma with little notes of hops. The finish is not very bitter considering the style as the malty sweetness keep the hops in check. Not too interesting.

Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
A hazed golden blonde ipa with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light oxidation character, light mineral notes, resinous citrusy floral hops, treacle, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with light resinous floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light oxidation, treacle, pleasant and still solid after 7 years. Biropholie imports.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2015
*Old rating, best before 1.2013 (so bottled in 2008). Sweetish-alcoholic beginning with nice fruity-floral aroma. Intense floral hops on a way too sweet body. The aftertaste is nice bitter, sweetish-alcoholic with a great floralness. Nice try.

Grumsete brun farge med tynt skum. Lukter karamell, svakt av hunle og masse sdme. Dette blir en litt snodig dobbel ipa. Stt og atter stt i smaken ogs. Alkoholen kjenner man godt i ettersmaken.

Vighals (3735) - Srumsand, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2014
Uklar mrk brun med lavt beige skum. Lukter gjr, malt, alkohol, karamell og ntter. Hres i utgangspunktet bra ut men det var en noe kvalmende st gjrlukt som ikke var srlig behagelig. Smaken var derimot en liten opptur. St kandissukker og alkohol, men ikke kvalmende. Noe bitterhet i avslutningen.

Alengrin (5105) - BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2014
One of the first Belgian IPAs and effectively labelled as such; this trend has continued since then, to that extent that extra hoppy Belgian ales can now loosely be grouped as a Belgian IPA substyle. Thick and moussy, sticky, cream white head, deep orange blonde colour, cloudy. Powerful aroma of grassy, oily and peppery hops, tonic water, peach, chamomille, pepper, bread, apricot, pear, cardboard. Yeasty and fruity taste, vaguely sweet with pretty strong carbo, smooth with an early and long-lasting, complex, dry and assertive spicy hop bitterness on a mellow caramelly malt backbone. Though this style was all but unknown in Belgium when this was marketed, it already showed great similarities with the classic American West Coast IPAs. I hope Johan Brandt will brew this again some day in his new brewery.

baraciisch (3120) - California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Rated from beer log during 2009 Belgium trip...Golden in color, not very aromatic by American standards... Slightly sweet, not as bitter as most double IPAs I've had, but fairly otter finish on the palate.. Definitely conceals the 10% abv... Not bad, I've had better on the US but an interesting beer nonetheless ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Double IPA with a very heavy Belgian body of sweet malt and smooth yeast. Full of ingredienst, this beer tastes like a meal.

August 2010. From bottle. Pours amber color with a white head. This is not your traditional IPA but more IPA meets Belgian yeast and style. Still an intersting brew, but not for me.

yngwie (16882) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle. An unclear, orange-golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick head. The aroma has some pine cones, but its mostly in the Belgian style of strong blondes or tripels. Sweet, fruity and sugary flavor with a decent bitterness. Full-bodied, quite smooth on the palate. A decent beer, but it lacks quite a lot to match the really nice Belgian Ales meeting American IPA hopping. 120525

Des particules inertes flottent comme dans une gele. Opaque et or, elle est domine par un mince collet de mousse qui ne sessouffle pas. Au nez, les pices et les fines herbes se couchent sur un lit dalcool lgrement citronn. Ds lentre en bouche, la perception dalcool seffondre rapidement sous des prtextes pics et sur une trame de poivre piquant. Puis lalcool nous hante nouveau, du haut de ses 10%. Les paysages bucoliques de Bruges se fondent bien dans cette bire surprenante. Ma dcouverte du Mondial de la Bire 2009 Montral.
