3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can. (Siciliano’s) Grand Rapids, MI.
Tea-like bitterness, mild tart fruitiness and mild bitterness in the aroma.
Mild bitterness, mild yeast and some malt in the flavour. What Belgian IPA? Yeast IPA... that’s what it is. But not bad.

Can. Pours a clear orange with a slight earthy amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet citrus with a hint of grassy hops and just a bit of sweet grains.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. can from Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a large fluffy off white head that leaves consistent lacing. The aroma has caramel sweetness, hops are fruity and a touch on the spicy side, some yeast is noticeable. The flavor has some sweet malts and yeast that are in line with a Belgian ale. The hops kick in mid palate through the finish and add some fruit character leaning toward citrus and mild bitterness. Finish has some lightly toasted bread.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at Brewery Vivant. Looks good; orange with white lacing. Smells solid; grassy hops. Tastes okay, but a little grassy. Mouthfeel is average. Good, not great. The Belgian yeast doesn’t stand out as a smoothing agent, but it’s still good.
