Poperings Hommel Ale 750ml:

Although there are more and more IPAs out of Belgium, to me there is a qualitative difference between those and the Hommel ale. The new IPS seem to be American inspired because the hop profile tends to be more on the heavy bitter with a more grassy citrus flavor. I do not know this for a fact but I would bet that the copious amount of hops it this beer come from the Poperinge area and has more of a flowery, resiny, almost cumin like flavor. To me this is a Belgian original that might just turn the head of the most jaded hophead.
