on tap @Moeder lambic MOusse diaprait vite, peu de lacing. Nez houblon américain, résineux surtout. Belle amertume. Bonne rondeur accompagne les sucres, on ne sent pas l’alcool. Peut-être un peu légère 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 doesn’t 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.

lobs_ols (452) - LATVIA - DEC 3, 2014
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-cassé, typique des IPA. Nez original, houblonné épicée, acidulé, ananasMais quelque chose aussi comme fermenté : fromage, champignon.Du boisé, du liège. En bouche corps léger, tout sur l’amertume, fruité en retrait.Fin et délicat pour du "simple amer".Second nez : décidemment, cette odeur de fromage mi-frais.Fromage italien ou grec, de type tomme.Une IPA vraiment originale, très peu belge (aucune trace du fameux levurage épicé belge), tout dans l’amer et avec quelques chose de plus.Assez troublant.Mousse qui colle légèrement aux parois du verre, ultimes marques de "belgitude" (J.Brel)

venom666 (1050) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Intense hazy amber color with generous white head with medium retention. Good carbonation. Columbus is predominant on the aroma, licuorice, resiny and spicy, also sweet malts and ripe fruits, but also has that Simcoe characteristics, earthy, finy and passion fruits. Medium to high body. Taste is very balanced, with renins, pine, citrus, yeast, and also caramel and toffee. Aftertaste is long and dry, with a decent bitterness kick.
