From the famous belly bottle an orange bell ipa scented to hay bacon, citrus and some pepper from the famous duck yeast especially refreshing but also caramel sweet, pretty good but also a little boring

The colour is gold-yellow, the liquid is clear. The two finger head is compact and golden, it sinks slowly leaving some fine lacing.

The smell got notes of American hops, hints of roasted nuts and phenolic spices. Some exotic fruits.

The first taste is very bitter. Then, yeasty-spicy phenolic notes emerge with a touch of soap. Light to medium body. Citric peels in the aftertaste as well as yeasty notes that makes me think of witbier. Tart citric acid, caramel and lime in the finish.

The carbonation is strong; the mid-sized bubbles are sharp and long lived. The light liquid is somewhat sharp.

Quite an unbalanced beer, the flavours don’t work well together.

Hazy orange color with a thin head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of tangerines, herbal hops, lots of Belgian yeast, lemon, some mango and honey.
Likewise, flavor with herbaceous and citrusy notes with Belgian yeast, tangerines, candy sugar, mild mango, lemon and sweet flowers. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Refreshing and easy to drink Belgian IPA, relatively mild but with a character of its own.

330ml bottle @ Tropical Murphy's in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Murky copper colour; translucent. Standard off-white head of 2 minute retention.

Aroma and taste bring notes of orange zest, citrus, pale malts, and fruit. Balanced, albeit somewhat shallow, lacking the pungent hop profile of superior IPAs.

Mouthfeel is soft, smooth, wet, refreshing, medium, and overcarbonated.

Overall, it's a nice low ABV IPA that drinks easy on a hot summer day and will pair well with food, but it can't hold a candle to the finest expressions of the style brewed in Denmark, the U.S.A., and the like.

On tap served in a Vedett pint glass at Ekamai Beer House, Bangkok, Thailand.

L:
Golden orange in color, a bit hazy, thick white frothy head sinks down slowly with good retention and leaves thin foamy layer atop. There are a lot of lacing patches clinging here and there.

S:
Candy sugar, spice, hint of ripe mango, orange peel, citrus and some malt with bready quality underlying.

T:
Floral, fruity (mainly citrus) and sweet from malt along with Belgian’s yeasts but not too overwhelming as hops brought to balance with some spice and moderate bitterness, the aftertaste is also lingered with more intense hop bitterness.

F:
The body is medium with smooth mouthfeel and crisp carbonation to stimulate the taste buds. Finish is dry.

O:
Pretty good Belgian IPA, light, balance, refreshing and easy to enjoy while not forsake the part of hop. Yes, the hops work very well here.

Received in a beer52 order.

Pours hazy golden orange into a tulip glass from 330ml bottle. White head has large silky bubbles, and rises 3-4 fingers high before diminishing quickly to nothing. Lacing is minimal.

The nose is all sweet clementines, with some papaya, mango, and pineapple. There's also a herbal aroma almost like coriander which blends with the orange to create a fresh and juicy earthy scent. It makes the beer smell very appealing; I liken it to the scent of an orange vinyard blowing through an old monastery. Very Belgian.

The nose comes through strong in the flavour, more of those sweet herby clementines with just a bite of sour tropical fruit, and then meandering into mellow bitter hops. The aftertaste is an amalgamation of all the aforementioned with a bit more emphasis on the bittersweet orange.

In the mouth it feels more carbonated than I had expected, producing this tang on the sip which melds with the citrus, and leaves the palate feeling fresh. The beer is light-medium bodied with an oily quality to it, but after the swallow it leaves a slight dryness behind.

This is a great thirst quenching IPA with a really nice Belgian spin on it. The flavours are fruity, and earthy, and above all well balanced. I would definitely return to this IPA given half a chance.

330ml bottle from Beer52 website:
A really nice Belgian IPA, better than I thought I would; it was certainly a step up from the bottle of First World Problems Belgian IPA from Stewart Brewing that I also tried recently. The beer was fresh & well-balanced with a nice hop bitterness, plenty of fruits & a few nice herbal touches towards the end; excellent stuff & definitely a beer that I'd go back to again.
