This copper colored American IPA took a wild left turn when we fermented it with our favorite Trappist ale yeast. Charged with hops, followed closely by a clove and pepper Belgian yeast character.

Daytonbeer (726) - Ohio, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Pours brownish gold with off white head and lots of lacing. Aroma caught me off guard. Not what I was expecting. Kind of smells like a dirty shoe. Taste was also surprising. Tons of hops, with a spicy/yeasty finish. Unique.

Sample @ GABF 13. Pours a clear amber beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of citrus, lemon, grassy hops. Flavour is fairly bitter, long lasting. Decent brew.

Fatehunter (2244) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Poured minimal head on a clearer dark straw colored body. The aroma is great. Bright citrus, pear and Valencia orange. The taste is complex with mandarin, moderate bitterness and finishes with black peppercorns. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. An outstanding beer that hits all the notes perfectly.

Palme (4122) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2013
From gravity cask @ Rattle N’ Hum. This one is really cloudy and deep brown - almost muddy looking in the glass and it has a medium sized really bubbly off-white top. It has quite an interesting aroma with something really spicy. In a strange way it actually reminds me a lot of root vegetable like peppery rutabaga. It also has some soft yeasty hints, a good amount of red amber malts in the taste and a nice sweetness that rounds it off. Really different and a really present taste on this crazy Ivan guy, but I quite enjoy it. The cask condition has really transformed this. 13.06.2013

On tap, golden amber pour with medium sized off white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, fruit, spice and hops. Taste of caramel, yeast, clove, sight pepper and dry hop finish. Full bodied and great carbonation, good beer.

Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2013
4oz at Max’s. POurs light amber. Good lacing, little head. Aroma is largely hoppy. Flavor is same, but with added yeast. Not a lot of complexity, but still good.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Clear rich orange pour with a clingy white head. Sweet, yeast, caramel malt, potent aroma. Strong on the yeast. Nice.
