330ml bottle served in and ordinary glass.
Bought during a business trip in Luxembourg in one of the best beershops I've ever visited, the Mi-Orge Mi-Houblon in Arlon - Belgium (http://miorgemihoublon.be)

Enjoyed @ a hotel room in Luxembourg :/

A: Pours a nice orange to amber cloudy color forming a big and solid, and creamy white head. Excellent retention and tons of soapy and lingering lacings left in the glass

S: Excellent smell of fresh and flowery hops. Very citric, quite American profile. Notes of orange, orange zest and sweet grains. American style IPA with some touches of Belgian bready yeasts

T: Dry, grainy, crispy and bitter. Sweet pale malts. Fruity with notes of orange and orange zest. A bit bready with a huge hops bitterness in the end...

M: Light to medium body. Citrus hops bitter aftertaste

O: Excellent drinkability. Excellent IPA. Quite American to a Belgian IPA but absolutely recommended anyway

From a 660ml bottle with a fairly high fill and a best before date of June 2015

A cloudy grapefruit color super foamy pour enters the glass and is crowned with a thick egg shell/yellow head that just refuses and refuses to recede. Sweet flowery hops dominate the nose with a unique aroma unlike an American IPA. First sip is super yummy, lighter in flavor than expected, yet impactful. It starts sweet then a refreshingly bitter finish takes over. I am not sure what hop or yeast is used but they are unique and complimentary. As it warms, slight citrus notes emerge. Mouthfeel is spot on thanks to near perfect carbonation. The clingy lacing is wonderful too and just adds to the overall awesomeness of this beer. I do like this beer’s malty backbone with the yeast adding a Belgium twist. Light and refreshing, I am so glad to have an IPA that traveled across the pond that tastes so very fresh. De Dochter rocks again.

dark golden color with a white head that shrinks to a collar and doesn't leave tons of lace. nose and taste are tropical fruit, apricot, citrus, flowers and sweet malt. fruity hop flavors play with the malt well. slight bitterness in the back end as there should be. very nice balance. medium body, low carbonation and a soft and silky feel. much more AIPA than Belgian-style to me, but whatever... always impressed by de dochter. fun and easy to drink.

Pretty good brewery. Tried several beers and I liked them a lot.
Liking IPA's , so i'm curious about this.

Orange colour. Fizzing beer, but a good head. nice lacing. cloudy as it's poured out.
Smell is fruity: apricot, mandarine fruit, clear pine as well.
Taste is bitterness, as expected, but not crazy. Spicy as well.

Overall it's a nice beer. Always good smell, taste delivers.

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a massive two finger high white head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a good sized head covering the surface and rings of lacing around the edge of the glass.
S: The nose has a light but interesting mixture of floral and grassy hops, lemons and spices.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and has some hints of herbs and a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate with a high amount of carbonation. There is a lot of dryness throughout the taste, which particularly stands out in the finish and aftertaste.
O: The flavors in this Belgian IPA are very unique for the style. It definitely makes for an interesting beer to sip and savor.

650mL (best before Okt 2013) into a tulip. Pours a clear honey-golden color w/ a monstrous sudsy white head, big clumps of sticky lace.

Aroma is a blend of floral Belgian yeast and floral hops.

Taste is dry pale malt, floral hops w/ a bitter bite, Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel is soft, medium-bodied courtesy of the wheat malt and bottle conditioning.

Overall a nice Belgian twist on an American-style IPA.

On tap at Max's during their annual Belgian fest.

The beer pours a light gold color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is pretty nice, showcasing considerable honey, vanilla and light butter. The flavor profile genenerally replicatese the nose, though there is considerable hoppy bitterness in the finish that surprised me a bit. The hops really dry out the moderate sweetness on the finish, though there's also considerable underlying spice in this beer as well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied at most, with a long, bitter, fairly dry finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile and barely noticeable.

Pretty nice...

I had no idea what I was ordering in La Trappist, Brugge on 31st Jan 2014, but at 6% ABV this was the weakest beer on-tap and as I'd never had it before I chose to try it: glad I did.

I'm no expert on Belgian IPA's but this came across as a very drinkable beer indeed.

Came slightly cloudy, orange to light amber in colour with a good white head.

The aroma was floral with a citrus lead, pink grapefruit and something more tropical and sweeter.

The taste was also citrus led, again grapefruit came to mind, with yet again a sweeter feel within the flavours. The finish was leaning towards bitter, but didn't quiet make it the whole way.

Interesting and different, glad I picked it out.
