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 (10602) - 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.

Pours deep amber with a fading head.
Very sweet smelling aroma of confectionery, golden syrup and spicy hops.
Similar flavours, sweet malt and spicy, herbal hops. Also some booze giving a harsh, slightly industrial character.
Carbonation is a bit too high. jeremytoni (3082) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2013
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount. Light hoppy malty flavor with a quick finish. paulvanpelt (657) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2013
Amberkleurig bier met een stevige schuimkraag. Licht troebel met een goed aroma. Smaak is fris, fruitig en tegelijk bitter met sterke alcohol. In de nasmaak overheerst de bitterheid soms iets teveel. NikkTwist (3303) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Hazy amber with a tight white head. Lots of lace. Floral dry Magma hops. Vinous juicy grapes as well. Peppery hoppy brew. Medium full body for an IPA. HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2013
330ml Bottle from delirium (also on tap) - Amber in colour. Hoppy aroma with pine and grapefruit. Hoppy taste with grapefruit, pine and toffee. A very nice IPA.
