Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: beerdrifter on 07-08-2013

This beer is a response to the very bitter beers that are brewed worldwide. The description IPA is not here for India Pale Ale but for Incredible, Powerful & Amazing . Instead of mostly American hops we use 7 Flemish hopping from the Flanders Fields.
Obviously we taste a beer that is very bitter here but one that does in " balance "is so drinkable and is inviting to the next ....

Kolor żółty, bursztynowy, lekko mętny.
Piana spora drobno pęcherzykowa z kilkoma większymi dziurami. Dość długo maluje szkło.
W aromacie występują owoce tropikalne, bardzo nikłe nuty kwiatowe i chmielowe.
Smak natomiast, to duże pier..., uderzenie goryczki (80 IBU) a za chwilę pojawiają się akcenty owocowe, kwiatowe i coś jakby wysuszony tytoń. Każdy łyk na finiszu zakończony kwaskowym podbiciem. Goryczka, która w Hop Verdomme jest jego kręgosłupem jest sucha, trawiasta, długa, długa i długa.
Zalega i lekko ściąga ale można powiedzieć, że nie zmniejsza pijalności tego piwa. Reasumując fajne IPA, pomogło mi strawić spory obiad.

Pours a hazed golden color with a white soapy froth that has excellent retention. The aroma is full of estery, Belgian yeast and earthy, herbal hops. The yeast has a bit of fruityness like peach or pear.

In the taste, more of the fruity, lightly spicy yeast and hops coming in with more spicy herb, pine, and citrus. There are elements of damp hay, bubblegum, white pepper, and chai tea from the hop/yeast interaction and the European pale malts used in brewing.

Smooth, medium to full bodied ale with a good medium-high level of carbonation. The finish is relatively clean and moreish if anything.

Overall, this is a really smooth Belgian IPA that has a lot more yeast character than American versions of the style. It takes away from the hops alittle bit, which is fine with me but may put others off. Just a hopped up Belgian pale.

Nice three-finger head that settles slowly and in a rocky fashion. Webby, clumpy lace. Dark gold with a yeasty haze.

Low hop nose for the style. More sour than anything. I smell faint green olives and light Belgian yeast.

Sour malt flavor in the beginning but there's a strong black pepper-like hop bite in the swallow. Bitterness lasts a long time through the aftertaste. Belgian yeast flavors throughout the tasting. Good body with an elevated level of carbonation.

Poured into a Palm glass.

A - A golden hazy beer with a nice finger of head. Head disappeared quickly.

S - Pepper, gloves, spice, and hops. Touch of sweet bread.

T - A really nice Belgian ipa. Characteristic Belgian character and hops. Really nice balance with the character of the yeast and hops.

M - Very easy drinking and a little different take. Lingers pleasantly.

O - I would gladly buy this again when I see it. As someone stated this is a Belgian IPA not an American. Really well done and cost $3 a bottle. Worth trying

The previous reviews make me think people are confused that this is an American IPA (which would be understandable, if you've seen the label). It's actually a damn fine Belgian IPA, and it's cheaper than most. It's not Houblon Chouffe, but that's the gold standard and a straight-5 rating.
