On tap at moeder lambic this was a sleeper hit in my book and made the trip. As others have said its red-orange, white head. What I appreciated is a smoothness to the middle and finish that helped make it work so well. Good for De Musketiers to take on the big guys and come up with this hit.

An amazing beer for anybody. Such a beautiful orange color, big juicy body, all while being finished extremely hoppy and bitter. A true Belgian "Triple IPA", and a must try for American IPA fan. My favorite part of this beer is the craftsmanship that goes in to the head, retention, and lacing. So big and white, with both fluffy and sticky characteristics. One could spend 30 minutes just admiring the head before sipping the beer. Big hit in my world.

I like to think that many of the Belgo IPAs have an advantage over their American counterparts because the quality of beer is that much better and in this case that line of thinking is on point. The Troubadour Magma for this year contains a special Australian hop that gives it more of a fruity aroma and it delivers a very nice and complex taste as well.

A - Pouring with a murky golden / orange / reddish hue, and a lacy white head, the look is great.
S - The smell is floral, resinous, and fruity.
T - The yeast and hops work together nicely without one overpowering the other.
M - Thick, yeast residue will come about 5/7 the way through the bottle so beware!
O - Overall very well balanced and certainly outdid my expectations for a lower IBU india pale ale.
