4.13/5  rDev +2%
look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Comes in a small 350ml brown bottle with the freshness date notched at the bottom of the label. I don't know why Beer Advocate calls this Poperings Hommel Bier when every bottle I saw plus the actual picture of this bottle uploaded here clearly uses the word ale instead of bier, but in any case here is my review of it:

The pour produces a huge frothy white head that nearly consumed the entire ale glass, so be carefull with the pour. Once it settles down (which takes awhile), the beer takes on a pear yellow color with a tint of orange, and leaves an incredible amount of lacing on the glass. It's a really beautiful looking beer.

The smell is very faint, not much to it, but what there is of it smells like fruit, spices, and hops. While the smell of hops may be faint, the taste sure isn't. This beer is loaded with hops. It is actually a delicious mixture of sweet malts, citrusy fruits, and bitter hops with the hops being the predominant flavor.

Nice creamy mouthfeel with a decent amount of carbonation, and a dry and slightly alcoholic finish. Really easy to drink a bunch of these. A nicely crafted IPA which is a bit of a rarity in Belgium.
