[7013-20141226] 330mL bottle. Orange hops aroma. Hazy, orange red body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter toasted orange peel and grainy orange hints in the flavour. Medium body is quite bitter. Good. (8/3/8-/4/15) 3.8

on tap @Moeder lambic MOusse diaprait vite, peu de lacing. Nez houblon amricain, rsineux surtout. Belle amertume. Bonne rondeur accompagne les sucres, on ne sent pas lalcool. Peut-tre un peu lgre pour une "imperial".

2014-12-26. Hazy dark orange amber body with a nice foamy beige head and lace. 4+ Aroma is moderately alcoholic, some quick hops then caramel touched malt. 7+ Flavour is quite bitter, some nice orange citrus to the hops, orange peel, but the pleasant citrus is secondary to the bitterness. Smooth average plus bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Decent but doesnt quite live up to the depth it promises. Bottle, BB 29/10/15 at Town Crier, Toronto.

Amber colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma - Lemon rind, sherbet, slightly earthy. Taste - heavy citrus and quite dry. Earthy note creeps through. Alcohol well hidden. Not getting a great deal. Not bad but I had this a few years ago at Bruges beer festival through a hop cannon and it was the best beer I had all weekend!

Orangenabrieb und Melone in der Nase Leicht malzig dazu. Am Gaumen fruchtig mit langem bitteren Nachhall. Gut!

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle in Belgium. Faintly sweet malt flavors with hints of toast and bread crust. Gentle hop aromas but big hop flavors of citrus. Rind-like bitterness to boot. Decent impy IPA.

Transparent amber, strong white head. Lovely American hop on the nose - pineapple, some citrus, some grassy notes. Bitter with sweet notes. Nicely full-bodied, finishes bitter with a lingering warmth.

Robe mi-trouble rouge-brune et petit col de fines bulles blanc-cass, typique des IPA. Nez original, houblonn pice, acidul, ananasMais quelque chose aussi comme ferment : fromage, champignon.Du bois, du lige. En bouche corps lger, tout sur lamertume, fruit en retrait.Fin et dlicat pour du "simple amer".Second nez : dcidemment, cette odeur de fromage mi-frais.Fromage italien ou grec, de type tomme.Une IPA vraiment originale, trs peu belge (aucune trace du fameux levurage pic belge), tout dans lamer et avec quelques chose de plus.Assez troublant.Mousse qui colle lgrement aux parois du verre, ultimes marques de "belgitude" (J.Brel)
