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.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle:   Orange hued straw, hazy, thin to moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Bright citrusy nose.   Candied citrus peel and a bit of pith.   Also a bit dank.   Dank to start, muted citrus peel and pith.   Not as bright on the tongue as the nose suggested.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Bitterness is actually fairly mild.   Seems a bit doughy and barnish as times, perhaps from the Trappist style yeast.   Finishes less of an IPA than it started, doughy and yeasty.   Decent, but wish the brightness hung through to the finish.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1000) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 5, 2014
pours gold-orange or orange-amber depending on backlighting, thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus (pineapple and orange and mango) hits immediately from afar. Burying ones nose in it, one can discern some banana and flowers (the trappist touch, presumably Chimay yeast...WLP500?) Body is medium-light, somewhat syrupy and fuzzy, a bit low on the carbonation overall, a bit prickly and diffuse. Flavor has the aroma components, albeit with a lesser intensity. In addition, there are notes of grain and drying grass, maybe a hint of mineral. Some tree. A nice Belgian IPA, very good job blending the styles. Work on hop flavor intensity, head-retention, and distinct Belgianess if possible).

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Dark Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Citrus aroma some light strawberry and sweet grains and caramel. Full well coated palate. Flavor has a good amount of malty sweetness followed by a dry piney bitterness and a fair amount of citrus fruits. Well balanced tasty and pretty big with a subtle sign of its gravity in the swallow.

jcr (2346) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Draft. Amber body. Frothy off-white head. Aroma of leafy hops, alcohol, toasted grain, tangerine, citrus, pineapple. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/sticky texture, lively carbonation. Hop-forward flavor. Leafy, raw hop flavor is sweet malt backbone. A sweeter than usual ipa.

Beerathon (1558) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Fantastic IPA with a Belgian twist. A sweet malt backbone but the hops are the highlight. Love the Citra! Color- orange with slight reddish-brown tinge. Citrusy and piney. Yum!

portableparty (2065) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours red amber with a tight soapy off white head that dissipates to a wispy film and sudsy collar. Aroma is bright citrus and pine and somewhat resinous. Taste is bitter and biscuit like with bitter citrus some rind and yeast and just a bit of spice. Palate is thin crisp and dry. Very enjoyable, will need to get more down the road.

rosenbergh (8556) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Draught at the Ale Asylum, Madison, WI.
Cloudy deep golden colour with a small white head. Sweet exotic fruits, earth and mild yeast in an absolutely delicious aroma. Mild yeast, some malt, moderate bitterness and dark fruity hops in the flavour. I was expecting a bit more after the great aroma.

Hazy, burnt orange pour with a small white head. The aroma is herbal with some faint citrus. It has a medium body with an oily texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with some noticeable alcohol and a slightly salty finish.
