Aroma is nice, but it is citra strong. It is tamed but as it warms, it gives off some ammonia, cat p. A small retained head. More than one hop. ABove average mouthfeel, spurred on by the Belgian yeast. Decent drinkability and taste for the style.
Growler at D’s 37th BDay.

Deep golden pour with a thick fluffy white head. The aroma is great. Loads of pine and bright Belgian spice aroma. Incredible juiciness with a nice tropical fruit aroma. A little bit of pepper and some tropical fruitiness. Some candied fruit but the beer is nicely dry and fresh. Zesty and delicious. One of my favorites from these guys. Absolutely delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013-08-24. Hazy bright orange body modest white head and lace. 3+ Aromas is hoppy with pleasant Belgian yeast quality to it. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy up front, yeasty Belgian character eventually catches up to the hops. I can’t decide if I like that combination or not. Light leafy green hops in the finish, lingering Belgian character and fruity hops. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, pleasant carbonation. 3+ Quite enjoyable. The Belgian character diminishes the impact of the hops at times but it still works nicely. Enjoyable. On tap at Volo Bellwoods Sunsplash event, Toronto

Draught at Bar Hop. Pours a deep orange-copper with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of catty hops, pepper, Belgian yeast, biscuity malt and some citrus. Flavour of catty, fruity hops along with Belgian yeast, fruit, light spice and a decent bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied. A solid Belgian IPA, great stuff.

On draught at Bar Hop. Hazy amber gold, average off white head. Smells and tastes of Belgian yeast, catty bitterness, some alcohol - well balanced. Average body, solid carbonation, medium dry pungent bitter finish, a bit astringent. Lovely.

Another great beer. Enough Belgian influence to away me from my boredom of IPAs. Pours cloudy copper. Good head, good lacing. Floral hops on aroma with some sugarcane and booze. Some grapefruit astringency as well. Average carbonation. Finishes bitter. Tap at brewpub.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the brewery. Bottled Feb 1st, enjoyed on May 31st - held on to it a bit longer than I’d planned, but it’s still in great shape. Honey-orange-gold body with a lot of little floaties and a creamy white head. Aroma has loads of fruit - pineapple, sweet orange, peach - with a bit of pine and some Belgian yeast spiciness. Flavour is like a tart tropical fruit salad with a dressing of peppery yeast. Finish is medium length and moderately bitter, with some grapefruit peel balanced with honey and white pepper. Medium bodied with nice tingly carbonation. A delicious refresher that hides its strength way too well...
