COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Caramel and bitter spice. Some apple notes which must be derived from the Belgian influence.

on tap at Falling Rock, pours dark red with off white head. the aroma is a rather off putting, a rotten red and dark fruit-yeasty thing going on. flavor is malty with that rotten fruit flavor. that beligan yeast strain took over this brew with poor results.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center 09/10/2008 Some hop aroma. Dark bronze coloured and very fruity with a bitter lasting wheaty finish.

$6 pint on tap at Falling Rock. Dark reddish-orange, looks more like Red Rocket than Racer 5. It smells kind of grainy and not hoppy at all. The flavor is more grains and cereal malty type flavor, not really good at all. In fact this was a real disappointment to be honest. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 08-08-2009 22:32:01

9oz draft @ For the Love of Hops 6/6/09 (drank with FlssmrBrewAlum)-Pours an amber body with a small white head that dissipates rather wuickly. Aroma of belgian yeast and sweetness. Taste of the same with some hops added as well. This medium bodied brew was great tasting and definitely different.

thooper41 (548) - BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2009
Oregon Brew Fest: amber brown with white head, aroma just pretty malty, flavor not very Belgian but pretty much like a bland pale ale with some spices and a little bit of depth in flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 Great fresh hop aroma (on tap in Healdsburg) with cloves, honey and orange peel. modest off white head on slightly hazy amber brew. flavor of peaches, woodsy hops. busy in the mouth, full flavored finish,

boFNjackson (4137) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Tap @ OBF... Poured a deep, rusty/amber with a slightly off-white head. Buttery caramel malts and hops on the nose. Barley and light hops with an acidic sweetness. A little kick from alcohol. Sweet, candy flavors and a cracker or biscuit-like quality.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2010 Tap at ACBF. Holy mother, aroma is PERFUME. I had to make sure that a 70-year-old slut hadn’t just strolled past me, and that I was actually smelling the beer. Flavor has lots of candi sugar with generic Belgian yeastiness. A bit of resin, but mostly just sweet and Belgian-sided. Kind of odd and not too fun. 5-4-6-3-13/3.1 An alternate rating from a similarly inebriated time: Aroma of orange peel, coriander, flowers, cracker, bread. Flavor continues to nicely blend all the spicy, herbal, and malty notes with honey, orange, and roses. Very quaffable. 7-4-7-4-16/3.8
