COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A chaotic blend of Citra hops and Belgian-style yeast give this IPA aromas of passion fruit, a bright hop flavor and a plush finish.

Sample at the brewpub. Hazy bronze-amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of spicy hops, grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

piscator34 (1997) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottled sample via oakbluff. Mostly clear pale orange in colour with medium carbonation. The Citra hops are very strong on the nose, backed by some Belgian malt and subtle yeast derived spice notes. Things get flipped in the mouth, with more of the Belgian yeast characteristics taking centre stage: toasted and sweet biscuit malts, dark spices, and a bit of bubble gum mix with the tropical fruit flavored hops. Medium bodied, with a decent amount of bitterness. Beers with this much Citra can be hit or miss for me, but I’m digging this one.

Indra (2663) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On draft at the brewpub, noted as 7.5% abv. Strongly fruity, citric aroma, plenty of phenols and esters courtesy of the Belgian yeast strain, with notes of bandaid, clove, bubblegum, lemon, grapefruit and peppery spice, some lighter notes of honey and leafy herb. Hazy medium golden-amber in color with a very fine-bubbled head and lacing to match. Flavor profile is nicely hoppy and bitter, with plenty of bright citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit, bubblegum, spicy clove, and only a touch of lightly sweet and toasty malt in the background. The yeast profile is not detected as much in the flavor as in the nose, which is fine, and keeps the Belgian profile in check somewhat. Finishes hoppy and fairly clean, plenty of lingering bitterness and light spice. Generously effervescent and warming on the palate, body is medium-full. Some mild pineapple appearing late. Really quite good!

Fantastic IPA with a Belgian twist. A sweet malt backbone but the hops are the highlight. Love the Citra! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at kaseys in Chicago. Dark Gold with white head. Good lacing. Smells hoppy and some pine. Crisp and pine hop, but fresh tasting. Crisp bite. Nicely done, even if it doesn’t blow my mind.

On tap at haymarket pub and brewery in chicago. Pours an orange gold color with a really floral head. I love how complex this is but can't identify the finishing flavor. Really great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Graze. Orange color and white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, clove, and some yeast. Taste is fruity and balanced. This is a very good ipa on the fruity side rather than the piney, citrus side. Well balanced with a slight hint of alcohol in the finish. Medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
