    This is a fantastic beer – I made it with the third generation of a batch of WLP530 that I’d made a patersbier and a Belgian Strong Golden Ale with. The bitterness and hop flavour balances so well with malt profile, and the yeast is undeniably Belgian but the spiciness is far more reserved than the golden ale that was ramped up to 26c by the time it finished. I’ve tried a few Belgian IPAs before (Stone Cali-Belgique and Houblon Chouffe spring immediately to mind) and this is head and shoulders above the Stone offering.
