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.

Bottle from the brewery. Bottled Feb 1st, enjoyed on May 31st - held on to it a bit longer than Iíd planned, but itís 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...

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
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.

neongolden (329) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2013
(650mL bottle from brewery, bottled Feb 4 2013 and consumed 20 days later) Pours a hazy orange with a bubbly, fluffy white head and loads of lace. Smells strongly of both hops and yeast. Citrus, catty, tropical fruit, bready yeast, spices. Flavour follows on, fresh tropical fruit, citrus, some sweet lighter malts, Belgian yeast, slight spice. Fades into medium hop bitterness, bit astringent with a fruity core lingering, slight booze when warm. Mouthfeel medium-full, oily, moderate effervescent carb. The hops and yeast characters really well balanced and complementary with strong fruitiness, more "Belgian" than most Belgian IPAs. Very good stuff.

Golden color with a frothy white head and lace. Lovely hop citrus aroma. Spicy gummy bear flavor. Bitter citrus finish.

blankboy (5798) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shaynsawchuk (360) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
650 mL. Copper with a thick white head, lots of lacing. Caramel, yeast and citrus, beeswax and pine, fruit esters, spice and cough syrup. Pleasently clean mouth feel with high carbonation. Sweet but well balanced by both hops and yeast. Complex and tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 From the bottle, pours a lovely hazy gold with a pillowy white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, lemon, honey, grapefruit. Medium mouth feel, good carbonation with a bitter slight astringent finish.

solidfunk (3004) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 7, 2013
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.

kevinsenn (979) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle from brewery. Pours clear amber with a white head. Brilliant fruity aroma: orange, grapefruit, peach, kiwi, strawberry, etc. Taste is "like every other Belgian IPA Iíve had", and thatís not a bad thin; pine, slight spice, citrus fruits, with good hop bitterness. Medium-bodied with high carbonation. Another good one from Bellwoods.
