of the Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor Belgian IPA. Established in Mechelen, a city with its own spirited character named "Opsinjoor", the brewery encapsulated this essence into a bottle with Hopsinjoor.

Intricately crafted, this IPA stands apart with its use of five diverse hop varieties, each added at specific intervals during the brewing process. This meticulous addition ensures that the vibrant aroma and the gentle bitterness of the hops are beautifully preserved.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: Pours a clear amber hue with a frothy white head that promises effervescence.
  • Aroma: Freshly picked hops with hints of citrus fruits, offering a tantalising prelude to what's in store.
  • Flavour: Hop-forward notes dominate, each of the five hops making its presence felt, culminating in a blend of fruity and floral undertones.
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a pronounced carbonation, giving it a sprightly and refreshing character.

Hopsinjoor's launch at the Zythos Beer Festival in 2008 was not just a debut but a triumphant entry, clinching the “Consumer’s trophy Zythos Beer Festival 2008”, thereby solidifying its place among the best.

What further distinguishes this ale is its unfiltered bottling, a method chosen to retain the beer's natural bitterness and hop essence, ensuring that each pour delivers the brewer's authentic intention. This commitment to authenticity, combined with centuries-old brewing expertise, makes Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor not just a beverage but an experience.

The legacy of Het Anker Brewery shines through in this brew. From being renamed in 1901 to its transition from producing "Emperor beer" to honouring Charles V with "Gouden Carolus", the brewery has always been at the heart of Mechelen's brewing narrative. And with Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor, this narrative finds a new chapter, one where tradition meets innovation, resulting in a beer that's both timeless and contemporary.

Perfectly paired with roasted meats or a cheese platter, this IPA is as versatile in its pairings as it is in its flavour profile. Whether you are a seasoned IPA enthusiast or someone just stepping into the world of hops, Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor is both an education and a delight.

In conclusion, Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor Belgian IPA is not just about enjoying a beer; it's about savouring centuries of brewing excellence, hop-laden traditions, and the vibrant spirit of Mechelen.
