3.43/5 rDev -6.3%
Feb 2011 lot 347 on cap. Poured into goblet. Three finger head of fluffy offwhite foam settles slowly with lacing. Copper liquid.
Rich nose of spicy hops, floral hops, some woodsiness. Smells like there is a good malt backbone to the hops.
Soapy, piney taste that gets bitter as the taste grows in your mouth. Very one note - no malt tastes to go with it. Not that much bitterness, but there is a lingering herbal piney aftertaste in the bitterness.
The real surprising bit is the mouthfeel - rather thin and watery. For a beer that looks and smells so great, the taste and mouthfeel are disappointing.

A: Hazy pale-redish color with a huge head.
S: Citric notes (orange and grapefruit), grass, weed and some caramel.
T: Pine, Citric notes (like orange marmelade), Exotic fruit, Caramel and grass.
M: Solid malt base with lots of fruity hops and a nice crisp bitterness at the end.
A very good belgian-style IPA which i hope i'll be able to try again.

This is a collaberative brew between the American brews from the soon to be opened Pipeworks Brewery, Urbain from Struise and Glenn from Alvinne, brewed at Alvinne.
Bottle at the pre-ZBF festival at Alvinne. The beer poured a cloudy straw yellow color with a thin white head, nice bubbles. Strong nose of citrus, pine and grapefruit. Taste provides a very present hop bite with more grapefruit, grassy and citrus but also a bit of a malt backbone. Beer has a dry finish and is pretty darn drinkable.
