3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The pour was a murky medium golden amber with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that lasted throughout and had some really good streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a strong pale grain malt, pine and grassy hops and a musty cobweb yeast with notes of citrus (lemon and grapefruit), apricot and a bit of coriander.
The taste was a tad bitter from the word go, with a mild apricot sweetness and then progressed into an extreme hoppy taste with a big citrus note and a nice dose of spice at the end. The flavor hung on for a good long time with a good strong hoppy spicy ending.
Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with a very pronounced dry texture and a nice prickly carbonation.
Overall this brew is a hop lover’s Belgian dream. Got to give it up to this brewer once again, seems everything they brew is quite tasty...

Great smell on top. Hazy golden pour with good head and lacing. Great mix with floral perfume and bitter finish evened out by Belgian yeast. Light sweet finish. Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont.

Nice head that stays. Pale, golden color and slight hoppy aroma. Easy to drink, this has an almost sweet but hoppy flavor. Bitter finish but can taste fruity yeast. Nice play, Belgian IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
@ Greens Discount / Columbia SC --- Cloudy medium amber with a thick puffy 1" head, sheet of lace that drops back into the drink. Taste is caramel malt that is quickly eclipsed by medium citrus hops. Glimmers of malt continue to show, but hops push right through the finish. Interesting brew, not exactly a Belgian Ale, but quite drinkable. This bottle says 7.3% abv.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a clear golden orange color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light spices, and lots of sweet fruitiness. Taste also has that Belgian yeast and spice characteristic, but not overpowering, with notes of old citrus fruit and pine as well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Lucky Dog w Erica. Tulip. 1.5-finger white head. Aroma of fresh hops and yeast, not too "Belgian" ... Tastes the same, fresh hop and herbal notes that blend really well. 8.5% booze hidden extraordinarily well. Easy-drinking Belgian.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Pours a slightly cloudy orange, lots of white head. Aroma deep, grassy, immense, like standing at the edge of a cliff with the wine rushing by. Some funk. Body very lively, pillowy, finish very subtle and complex. Fucking stellar.

I thought this was a nice BSA that had a good hop profile from nose tho finish and the flavors moved around enough to keep each sip something different.

On tap at the wonderful Brickstore Pub in Decatur,Ga. Delicate and sweet malts accompanying notes of light fruit are joined by an explosion of pungeant hops. Really solid offering. I gotta say from my experience all beer tastes a little better here.
