3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours burnt orange, off white head that recedes. Belgian candy yeast, kiwi, strawberry bubblegum, caramel malts and toast. Similar flavor profile with the dry grain malt profile showing up in the finish. Richer bodied and almost chewy. Nice hop bitterness on the finish. Well balanced and pretty well done for a Belgian IPA

Bottle. Caramel, fumes, and a little citrus. Medium dark amber color. Flavors of citrus, caramel, light sweet cake dough. Fades out pretty quickly. Thin-medium body. Nice enough. The Citra seems very understated.

Many thanks to Chris for this beer! Nice fresh Belgian Wit nose with fresh hops. The beer starts fresh but not too deep. Belgian Wit with nice smooth floralness. Fresh, smooth. Not too deep but nice. Fresh floral hops in the aftertaste with nice typical Belgian Wit aroma of yeast, coriander and citrus. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is very interesting with spices, yeast, hops and a bit of resin. Outstanding appearance with a huge billowy, off-white, semi-permanent head, with lots of lace and a clear honey amber color. Flavorís similar to nose with resin coming out more and lingering somewhat unpleasantly in the finish. Body is on the soft side which enhances that resin finish. Otherwise itís a real good drinking beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
In a word: "Intense". Thick-hazed amber color on the pour. Huge, peppery hops hit me before I even bring my nose down to the glass. Extra whiffs of grapefruit, pine needles and grasses are there when I do... but I can also detect a hearty malt backbone. The taste is potently flavored with all of those hop characteristics from the aroma. And it has a sticky consistency which allows all of those flavors to linger. Iím not a "hop head" but I certainly enjoyed the fireworks I experienced with this beer. Wow... the pine and pepper aftertaste just wonít quit! ~~~~ Single 12 oz. bottle received as a gift.
