This is my first ipa ever, so I can not really compare it with something.
It tastes really nice. I expected a really bitter taste, but it tastes really fruity. I bit bitter, but not too much.

33 cl bottle poured into the Duvel tulip

Same brewery as Duvel so Moortgat. A good ipa, cheap and widely available here, but not the best Belgium produce.

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.

This IPA has a nice fruity scent but weak taste. The appearance is hazy copper with an unstable head.

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.
