We all know this an IPA, not just a hoppy amber ale. Indeed it is a really great Belgian DIPA. Keep on drinking it. I love this brew. Probably because you dont find too much good Belgian IPAs and here it is one. Or probably its just great by itself. Next time I will describe my impressions because for now I just want to enjoy it.

Grima (2366) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle from Miorge Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium!
Pours clear amber-red with a short-lasting white head. Aroma has strong floral hops and belgian yeast. Taste has belgian yeast, flowery hops and spicy notes. Not bad, but defenitely no IPA!

Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2017
On tap at Yardhouse. Pours golden with a finger of creamy white head. Yeasty aroma with citrus. Strong alcohol bite with plenty of hops, but enough sweetness to be drinkable. Great beer.

Aroma veel gist met gedroogd fruit en banaan. De smaak is hoppif, romig maar te zoet. De afdronk is bitterder.

Zarrach76 (161) - Grenoble, FRANCE - DEC 30, 2016
Superbe robe ambre/orange trouble avec sa belle grosse mousse blanche. Nez superbe dquilibre entre agrumes, herbes, alcool et malts. Orange, citron vert, pamplemousse, crales chaudes, houblons floraux, noisette, caramel, pain dpices, poivre, coriandre, cest frais, vif, gourmand, net et sans bavure... De vritables armes dIPA impriale tendance triple. En bouche, le houblon fait son uvre bienfaitrice avec une gradation temporelle trs intressante dans lamertume et les saveurs. La texture est soyeuse, cest le terme, la carbonatation soutenue et lalcool est viril mais se comporte tout de mme en gentleman. Le dbut de bouche assche bien le palet, cart tout de suite corrig par des malts adoucissant, et juste aprs, un autre houblon prend le relais pour porter le coup de grce. On retrouve mme des saveurs mentholes ainsi que de thym et de romarin qui apportent une vritable fracheur. La levure est bien perceptible mais douce. Le final est sur les fleurs et les herbes sur fond damertume (pissenlit, coriandre...) avec une longueur qui nen finit plus. Le palet est juste poustouflant. Une Imperial IPA ou une triple IPA, on ne sait plus trop comment les dnommer, mais en attendant cest une excellente bire, point final ! Moins complexe quune Matten Highway To Ale mais plus "sportive". Je ne mettrais pas la plus haute des notes juste pour ce manque de varit dans les armes... cependant le houblonnage est fabuleux ! Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-grve.

Aroma: Malt, yeast (banana) ; Appearance: Copper with steady white rocky foam ; Taste: medium sweetness, medium to high bitterness ; Palate: full body, creamy, average carbonation, medium long finish with bitterness and yeast flavour. A great variation on belgian triple and IPA with dry hopping. Never heard of it before, found it by mere luck in a random liquor store. I am glad I found it !

m.mahu (155) - Iasi, ROMANIA - DEC 9, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2016 Bottle at Beer Zone, Iasi. Pours dark orange. Sweet malts and booze in the nose. Tastes like heaven: sweet malts, floral with sweet oranges. Low, lingering bittetness, medium carbonation. Thick, sticky malts for long sessions. Awesome IPA variety. Troubadour is making it easy.
