Tulip. Hazy copper hue with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is an interesting blend: sharp lemon peel and grapefruit juice, earth and honey with attending black pepper phenols and a touch of pear. Malta emerge more in the flavor with notes of biscuits, caramel and honey. A splash of tangerine hop flavor bites the tongue while clove and pepper yeast notes swirl. About as good as a Belgian IPA can get -- a very nice balance of Trappist yeast and sharp American hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper pour with a nice head that turned into nice lacing. Floral, tropical fruits, pine, caramel, citrus. Sweet, medium to full body, floral, citrus acidic, well balanced. A bit sweet for me but nice. Seems higher alcohol % than is.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Point st Tylerís Apex. Good aroma, sweet. Fruity perfumey orange pineapple, clove. Hazed brownish orange color, good head, little lace. Sweet bitter flavor. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, dry finish. Itís nice, real strong perfume scent. Flavour more grapefruit and clove, mouthfeel is odd to me. Kind of oily, clinging. Itís good in the scheme of things, but I donít want more either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Hazy medium copper pour with a small white head that left good splashes of lace. Somewhat bracing strong Belgium Ale with a good amount of hops. Strong murky dark citrus flavors. Hoppy blood oranges. Feels a bit syrupy. Medium-dark caramel malt flavors. Tootsie Roll. Mostly an over the top heady citrusy spicy brew. Seems higher than the listed 7.3% ABV brew. Good but not subtle.

Aroma: tropical, overripe fruits, some caramel. Appearance: slightly hazy brown, small head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets continue, but bitters come up in the background, again, resin and pine. Overall: very nice IPA, excellent aroma. Pint at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station, San Diego.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at cottonwood Houston. Dark copper pour, light tan head. Aroma is floral, Belgian yeast, hints of pepper. Earthy hops, hints of pine. Taste is nicely hoppy, integrated well with the Belgian yeast. Moderate bitterness, clean. Slight pine and very floral hops. Palate is smooth body, low carbonation. Overall a great cross between IPA and Belgian style.

Superb, well-spoken IPA, smooth but flavorful. Not sure Iím getting the Belgian yeast promised in the product description, but still quite good. It adds something but hard to tell what.
