Botella de 33 cl. Abundante espuma amarillenta propia de las IPA, duradera, densa. En nariz, es una de las más llamativas que he probado nunca....naranja, plátano, vainilla. Pueden olerse sus 9º de alcohol aunque luego los disimula bastante bien. El color es anaranjado, ligeramente turbio, muy bonito y en boca, es impresionante. Primer contacto dulce para acabar en un retrogusto deliciosamente amargo. CraftBeerNick (2550) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Keg at Lowlander, 27th March 2013. This is a tasty double IP, drinks easily, nice clean hops and refreshing, drinks below its ABV Beermogul (28) - USA - MAR 26, 2013
Copper foggy color. Non existant head. Smells of sweet butterscotch, light hop, caramel and brown sugar. Rich body with caramel, and goes down like a buttery chardonnay. Beautiful beer thats very well balanced and complex. Leepe_steven (205) - Lede, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2013 Pours hazy amber with three finger head. Looks very nice. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is very hoppy and fruity. Taste is hoppy, sweet and dry aftertaste. Very high drinkability despite the high alcohol. Sweet, dry finish, medium body. Unde (1077) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Copper coloured IPA, with thick head. Fruity American hops floating towards my nose. Flavor has sweet and bitter fruits. At first there is sweetness which steps away to give the floor to bitter hops. There is some twist here I can’t describe, it has something to do with the belgian yeast? Exciting beer, not the regular Imperial IPA.

Appearance was cloudy copper gold with off white diminishing creamy 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel, slight floral citrus, pine, herbal danky hops with hints of candi, no alcohol. Taste are sweet caramel malts with deep fruits of plum like and lemon spicey danky herbal hops. Little alcohol with estery sourness with candi, also. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then long estery yeasty citrusy finish. Smooth Belgian IpA. PriorL (3068) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 From Tap at ’the Backdoor’ Ghent.
Appearance: dark amber beer, off white nice blonde head.
Nose: wood, pineapple, soft touch of hops.
Taste: hops (comes out nicely), bitter.
Very nice drinkable beer. 9-3-8-3-13
Re-rate 33cl bottle.
Nose: very hoppy beer, truly amazing IPA nose, spices.
Taste: little dry, spices, though very balanced beer, somewhat bitter, very good combining of hops. Rather easing drinking beer, even for someone not that used to drinking IPA’s. DuffMan (10425) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. Orange amber body topped with a CRAZY explosively carbonated head. Super gassy! Settles nicely leaving a mess of lace. Aroma is very sweet, lots of honey and overripe fruit esters. Yeasty spicy palate, VERY yeasty, again with sticky honey malts and overripe fruits. No way in hell this approaches the typical IIPA, but as a Belgian strong ale I loved it!

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Nebuloso color ambrato con spumeggiante schiuma bianca. Aroma floreale, fruttato e luppolato con più delicati sentori di miele, toffee e spezie; gusto mediamente dolce e rotondo, caramellato, fruttato e mieloso, bilanciato da una controparte più asciutta e ben luppolata. Corpo medio, effervescenza piacevole, struttura vellutata: un ottimo incrocio bilanciato fra una Tripel belga e una IPA, morbida come non mai!

UPDATED: APR 23, 2017 1) 330ml bottle. Dark, dusted gold with the standard dense Belgian foam. Subtly humming aroma full of Fruit salad chews, jasmine, dank animal fur, grenadine, underpinning grassiness and the almond of alcohol. Fine and tropical with suggestions of pineapple, peach, red apple and those Fruit salad chews again. Finishes nougat-like, slightly nutty with mellow tongue-numbing warmth; grassy hop, white pepper. Bog standard tripel with a whiff of non-European hop exoticism about it. Only the booze lets it down. But I suppose if you didn’t want that you could drink shandy. Or Jupiler. Excellent.
2)Hot honeyed Cointreau, almond and orange marshmallow off the bat.
Foggy orange with a slender white cap resolving to Petra dish circles. Decent orange nougat, chocolate and orange wine gum aroma. Restrained hops. Pretty straight traditional tripel with soft Euro hop citrus and green herb. Flecks of orange cordial. Alcohol obvious, flavour not so. A bit dull and flabby.
