In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Ommegang Nirvana IPA

Aroma: "Floral hop qualities bordering on soapy, some citrus and underlying caramel sweetness. Very lackluster head retention."

Flavor: "Light body, medium bitterness, clean dry malt character. Hops dominate and bring an intense orange zest and pith character with the bitterness of the zest clinging to your palate. Other citrus notes are sprinkled in. Finish is dry and the bitterness lingers."

Overall: "An orange dominating hop character IPA with aggressive bitterness for big IBU fans."
