3.75/5  rDev -4.3%

Review according to BJCP 2008 guidelines (style 18D). Aroma: light sweet malt aroma, honey alcohol and spices. Very subtle hop aroma and esters (orange like). moderate alcohol aroma. Appearance: deep gold with material in suspension, so not clear. white creamy head with good retention and lacing. Taste: bitter taste from hops (this is a special blond) that linger to the finish. Medium bitterness balanced with high alcohol content. Some orange zest flavor present. dry finish and moderate bitter aftertaste. Palate: medium-high carbonation with medium body, giving a creamy sensation. Overall: a complex blend of aromas and flavours that combine well together.

330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glagow (£4):
Bright, golden amber with a slight haze & a 1.5cm, foamy white head with excellent retention, it holds steady for even after I started drinking the beer.

Light spice & yeast the medium strength citrus hops with pine & grapefruit. Some sweetness, mainly from some sugar & background fruits, mainly oranges & some pineapple with subtle hints of alcohol then some earthy hops & grassy notes at the end.

Hops, citrus & pine hops to begin alongside the spice & yeast. Orange & some grapefruit feature & it's well balanced with some sugar from the fruits as well. Some herbal & floral flavours come through with hints of alcohol at the end.

Almost full bodied. It's smooth with touches of alcohol without being too boozy or hard to drink. Sweet throughout with low carbonation.

A fairly good example of a Belgian IPA with more hops than I'd anticipated. Easy to drink & the dry hopping definitely made a difference with this one. Definitely a beer worth looking out for.

Champagne blonde with lots of floaties and puffy cratered white head.
Noble spice, pear esters, and rubbery yeast on the nose, plus some candy sugar.
Country white loaf, big lemon zest, some yellow apple, then herb, anise and grassy hops.
Banana chew finish and seriously numbing linger.
Creamy, hot, light-medium.

Pretty, good nose, luscious feel - technically sound. Nice layers of flavor, too - restrained phenols from the yeast, just a touch of white pepper. But too hot and underhopped (relative to each other) to work as an IPA.

0,33 l bottle (09-2016) into a tulip. Clear golden color, large white foamy head with pretty good retention and good lacing. Faint smell of belgian yeast and a hint of grass right after pouring. The taste starts off slightly sweet with malts, sugar and belgian yeast, drying up towards the slightly bitter end with a nice citrusy hoppiness. Balanced taste with no alcohol in it Medium body and carbonation. Overall a pleasant, drinkable and well balanced belgian IPA. Nice complexity, almost tripel-like with a bitter aftertaste.

Golden light amber color. Soppy white head reduces to a thick ring. Love looking at it in its own glass. Typical Sharp Edge proper glassware service.

Apricot fruitiness, floral hops, tangerine-like hops, meyer lemon, and pale malt sugars. Excellent nose. Prime authenticity.

Sweet stone fruits, leafy tartness, sweet lemon, flowery hops, grapefruit, spicy bitterness, estery pear, and slight alcohol. Rosewater and candied fruit. Unreal good.

Soft body with hefty wetness. Sparsely carbonated with a late push in the finish. Somewhat spicy.

Awesome Belgian IPA. Highly recommended, on-tap.
