A: Oh crap do I miss IPA's. This one looks great. Soda like single finger head, a hair hazy, orange-crimson, very healthy carbonation.

S: Reminds me of America, a somewhat spicy, perhaps nutmegish IPA, hoppy, mild detectable alcohol, fresh, piney and a bit sweet. cocoa powder

T: Very nice, could easily be American. A bit bitter but par for the course, pine forest, a hair of sweetness, alcohol is pretty blended for the abv. Was more apparent in the nose. Fairly typical good AIPA.

M: A funny extremely subtle sort of dryness. A nice, blended sting (doesn't stick out, but is there).

O: Totally solid IPA. Nothing outstanding, would blend in unnoticed out there on the west coast, but out here in Europe, I haven't had anything like it. Very happy to have found it.

I bought this once more at the Bierkoning in Amsterdam and I had it before at a Bierproeverij in a Cafe in Leiden. According to the label ingredients are malt (gerst, pale, cara and munich), hops (Galena, Cascade and Amarillo), water and yeast.

Pours a gigantic slightly beige silky head that lingers around forever. Body is a clear amber orange if you let the sediment set for approximately a week after bringing it home and pour it carefully leaving the sediment in the bottle. Lots of carbonation is visible.

It smells of Belgian yeast and citric typical IPA hops but could be a little more complex in this style.

Bitterness is clearly dominant as in any regular IPA but it is not overwhelming and adjusted to the continental taste.

It has a refreshing bitterness and an adorable smooth silky head. The carbonation is reduced after a few minutes but it does not get stale.

This is a very solid representation of the style. It is very typical and if you like American IPA, you will like this Belgium influenced one as well. However to make it great it lacks of complexity of the hops aroma and taste in my humble opinion. However, at the earlier mentioned beer tasting I got to chat with the brewer and he said it was somehow intentional. Probably to adjust it to the local taste.
