"Not really a pale ale," the bottle says in a bit of expectations management. So. Poured into a tulip glass as a brass-colored with a thin trail of bubbles feeding a thing ring of white foam. Aromas of mint, bread, light toast, a light lavender something. The hop attack stabs in as a thin and flinty edge of bitterness with a bit of iron in it. Some apricot, banana and coriander behind that, and some citrus pitch lingers afterward. Not a lot to chew on, with some helpful cleansing from the effervescence but a bit of oil persists in the mouth. Not so much that it won't work for a quencher or an aggressive session starter.

Easy drinking, not very hoppy. Brilliant white head. Duvel is ready for a real IPA their style...

A: Golden orange and filtered with soda like carbonation and 2 fingers of light orange cream head.



S: Tropical fruits, pineapple, candied orange, papaya, and lemon.



T: Tropical fruits as on the nose, almost like Fruit Loops cereal. Pineapple, candied orange, lemon, mango, and papaya. Light bitterness on the finish, light sweetness throughout but overall relatively dry.



M: Medium body, light sweetness, dry finish with moderate foamy carbonation.



O: Pleasantly surprised by the tropical fruit notes in this Belgian IPA! Its not like others in the style, nor is it very strong, but pleasant. Found at a bar by Papa John’s in Kunming, drank March 21st 2015.

Inviting golden orange color with nice lacing. Taste of candy, fruity, citrus. Very very thirst quenching with dry finish. Superior drinkability. One of my favorite so far.

Simply listed as the Vedett IPA at the Mushroom bar in Bordeaux, there's hardly anything "extra ordinary" about this IPA. The beer had a nice, somewhat perfumy IPA nose, with some nice floral characteristics, which were replicated pretty closely on the palate. The beer was a fairly lean and dry on the finish, with some light bitterness to buoy the underlying golden ale characteristics. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and so drinkability was pretty decent.

An easy to enjoy and appreciate beer from Duvel Moortgat. Not sure I would order this again (even here in Bordeaux, where options are limited), but it's decent enough.

IPA of a hazy orange/ocher color and a nice foam.
Smell is hoppy, grassy and filled with citrus notes.
Taste is similar, more fruity and less grassy.
In the mouth, it begins refreshing but then it dries a bit. Body and carbonation are ok but I think this beer hasn't a pleasant feel.
