L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had an amber-yellow color and a mostly clear consistency. There was an inch of creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Below average lacing.

S: A decent aroma of hops, pine, malt, citrus, and a light floral quality.

T: Tasted of moderate amount of pine, a good shot of malt (more than expected), lots of hops (especially up front), a bready quality, a tinge of the floral quality, and some citrus notes (grapefruit). In some ways the flavor reminds of one from an English IPA - much maltier than normal. The bitter hops dominate everything. A little uneven, but not bad..

F: A good amount of carbonation with a dry, somewhat bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solid IPA, if a little on the uneven side. Still, worth a try.

12oz can into a pint glasscnned 4/4/18, est by 8/2018, so 3 months old.

crystal clear golden yellow body. decent white head quickly shrinks to a thick ring & faint covering. very little in the way of lacing.

slightly floral aroma.

good hoppy, piney, flavor. nice support from the malt. very bitter towards the end.

a little above medium on the mouth, bitter on the finish.

overall, pretty good, strong tasting bitter ipa. nice hop presence even at 3 months. Nice one Ommegang.

A: clear golden amber color with some darker yellow notes towards the center

S: grapefruit, pineapple, resin, strawberry, apricot, crackers and some dough. There is a nice earthy, herbal sweetness as well

T: grapefruit, strawberries, and sticky pine upfront. Crackers and biscuity malt behind that. There is also a slight medicinal taste on the backend as well. Finish is more bitter pine along with a noticeable cedar flavor

M: lighter side of medium with high carbonation

O: mediocre ipa. Old school pine bitterness here. A touch more out of the hops would help this

Bottle from Tops. Pale golden, hazy, thick foamy head. Belgian yeast adds a nice savory snap. Peppery, yeasty, savory. Bread, crackers, nice snap. Tasty!

I’ve had my kegerator for 3 years now. Nirvana is the first beer that I’ve gotten back to back kegs of. Just a great tasting IPA that is very drinkable, any time of the year.
