Had it at Skopje (Macedonia) Beer Festival.
Pours a turbid golden beige color with a sudsy film that retains well.
Aroma of citrus, apricot and slight dank.
The body was medium and slightly chewy with a soft malt feel. Modest fruit like sweetness balanced with moderate herbal hops without any aggressive bitterness.
Overall I enjoyed this and found it quite drinkable. However, I didn't know what to make of it stylistically speaking. It is not bitter enough to be a West Coast IPA and it didn't have the yeast character of a Belgian IPA. Perhaps the closest it came to was a NEIPA without the over the top juiciness.

An interesting IPA. You can smell and taste both Belgian yeast and hops. The result is, well, quite different from some well-known Belgian IPAs like Piraat Triple Hop, Houblon Chouffe, etc. This beer is all about melons! Tastes like honeymelon, has some melon in aroma too, along with yeasty and floral notes. In the aftertaste you get the malty backbone and a dry, heavily bitter finish. Nice beer.

Hops are the stars of this one. Yes for sure. The most bitter beer i've ever drink. Dark orang towards brown color. Big white head, hops prevail, and some yeast and orange later. Creamy and murky, sparkling easily. Better with every sip. Exotic and new, hard to find.
