4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light golden straw color with a thick two finger white head that sticks around a while. This is a beautiful looking bottle conditioned beer, something I would expect from Allagash. There’s aromas of pine, citrus, white fruit, biscuit, yeast. The taste is much like the nose, hop bitterness up front like an IPA and then a beady yeasty Belgian character takes over. I don’t get any alcohol. Drinks great. This might be the best or one the best Belgian IPAs I’ve had, also one of my favorites from Allagash. Cheers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours golden yellow with a white head. The aroma is super floral with mild fruity Belgian yeast esters. LIttle to no malt. The flavor is very full with flowers, mild citrus and lots of spicy, estery yeast. Big bitterness too. Not really my kind of style, but well executed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours almost clear gold with a creamy white head and nice lacing. Tastes smooth, strong, and dry, like pine hops, caramel, grapefruit, and resin. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells creamy, nutty, and like light musk and light citrus.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 7-27-2009 (Caged and corked bottle) This beer pours a medium sized fizzy white head with a short retention, transparent golden body, slow rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, citrus, earthy hops, sweet, and lightly spicy. The Taste is sweet, bitter, caramel malt, citrus hops, fruity, and lightly spicy. This beer has a short dry finish. The Palate is tingly and the beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this beer is easy to drink, but unfortunately the flavors did not mesh together very well. This is one of my favorite beer styles and it was somewhat of a disappointment.

Draft at Fireworks Leesburg. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a fair amount of lacing in the glass. Has a slight grapefruit tinge on the nose. Very bitter on the tongue with a hint of sweetness on the finish. Solid but not necessary.

Taster at the source. Pours orange gold with a scant white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and sharp pine. Pale malt backbone gives way to citrus and piney hop. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
På fat. Näsan nås av citrus, banan, melon och karamell. Något svagt dock. Smakar desto intensivare och mer: Tropisk frukt (mycket ananas), apelsinskal och kåda. Fin beska. Svagt värmande alkohol.
