3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an interesting one. Pours a beautiful orange color with puffs of white head which retains itself well. Smell is on the malty side, with a bit of spruce-like pine notes. The taste brings out more of the hops, resinous and slightly fruity. The malt is nice, but it lacks much of the belgian character I was expecting. On the whole, nice.

Draft at the brewery. Amber in color and even keeled all the way. There’s a bit of a hoppy kick, but the body could have a little more oomph. (#5699, 8/31/2014)

Tap at the tap room. Dark gold with small white head. Aroma is subtle. Pine hop. Bitter with some resin and wax feel. Can taste the alcohol. A bit of sour citrus. It’s ok but not great.

This beer combines my favorite beer styles. Belgian, and IPA. This beer is smooth and delicious. Decent amount of hops. Delicious!

Dark hazy caramel in color... Aroma of caramel, candi sugar, citrus hops... Flavor is fairly crisp, not terribly dry, light citrus hop notes, candi sugar... Okay

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
4 oz. pour as part of an 8-beer flight, on tap at the brewery’s taproom. Pours a clear deep gold with an orange/red/copper glow in the light and a small amount of beige head. Sweet, resiny, syrupy smell features a pine scent. Flavors of pine, orange peel, and orange. Herbal quality to the taste. There is an unpleasant compost/vomit/chemical element to the flavor. It doesn’t taste as bad as that surely sounds, but it’s well below average for the style and for craft beers in general. Medium body. Smooth, frothy, and a bit oily in the palate.

Pours a cloudy golden color with foamy white head. Yeast, pine, grass, and citrus on the nose; all follow onto the palate. The yeast gives it a bit of chewiness for a nice mouthfeel. Finishes with some spice.

Draught at Northbound in Minneapolis. Light celery, sourish nose, with abit of honey. Medium copper color. Lacquer, harsh malt, with melds into ... not much. Thin-medium body. Thin. Not so well put together. Maybe a good start on a Belgian IPA, but there’s certainly work to be done here. There are some off flavors and the good flavors are not delineated.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange pour, not much head. Little hop in the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is flat malt taste. Finish is the hops trying take back control, but not quite pulling it off.
