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.

Pours a clear light orange with about a finger of off-white, slowly dissipating head. Brown sugar and lemon in the nose. Taste of caramel and lemongrass, with a lot of zest that fades into a gentle hop bitterness. This is one of the more interesting, complex IPAs Iíve had in a while.

12 ounce bottle at Sugar River Pizza Company in New Glarus, WI, served in an iced pint glass. Been a while since Iíve gotten anything in an iced glass - or gotten a bottle at a restaurant, but this place has no draught beer, surprisingly enough. Anyway it pours a thick, almost opaque rust-copper with a thick lasting off-white head...lightly sweet, pungent aroma with a bit of the farm but mostly resinous hops and a touch of orange...yeasty, doughy body is reasonably balanced in the sweet-hoppy characteristics and with some noticeable Belgian funk and dryness as well...very full, moderately carbonated - perhaps it could be just a wee touch fizzier and lighter in the mouthfeel - lightly peppery on the finish. Pretty solid though by no means great; after 2 of my last 3 AA experiences being pretty negative Iíve been wondering whether I should give up on them, but this was decent enough, just as I remember it from 2 or 3 years ago.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Slightly hazed light amber color. Tall, lasting canvas colored head. Iím not sure if the fact that Iím doing laundry has anything to do with it, but Iím sure smelling animal piss (sorry, to be graphic, but I got to call it as I smell it), grapefruit zest and light caramel. Very heavy lace. Things do seem to settle down a touch and the green hops overtake the petís tinkle tract tendencies. Smooth lightly oily feel that seems a touch lifeless by the time it reaches the back of the throat. Light fruit sweetness in the front, with peaches and melon. Mild spiciness in the middle. Finish has some herbal hops and some cloves from the yeast. An interesting brew 5/10

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2016
Bottled. Very hazy two-toned yellow/orange with a massive, frothy egg-white head. Zesty citrus aroma (grapefruit flesh, orange zest) with moderate pine and a vanilla cookie end. Mellow hop flavor, still heavy with grapefruit, but with a slight peach/nectarine sweetness to the middle. Pillowy mouthfeel is fantastic. I really enjoyed.

From a can...pours a bright orange with 1 finger head; nice lacing. Fruity but hoppy nose; slight hop edge with the fruit nose make it a really good taste...will be back; this is a good one; tasty.

mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
Can, pours a cloudy bright golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out a decent mix of dank hops and Belgian yeast. Flavour is similar, with Belgian yeast, dank hops, and earthy dryness. Not overly complex but it works decently enough. Okay.

By far my favorite IPA as of current. It has a full but smooth flavor. Dominated by fruity undertones the musty aroma is lessend. With the use of Belgian hops the IPA hits your pallet smoother than traditional IPA and leaves a much cleaner aftertaste. Starting with an almost bubblegum flavor the beer transforms into a bitter citrus flavor that stays in your mouth till the next drink. Highly recommended

Tap at brewery. Pours light brown with orange throughout. Aroma is very piney, lots of tropical fruits. Taste is really nice, the Belgian flavor comes out and blends into the ipa very nicely, a great representation of this style. Overall, very well made.
