3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can. Slightly hazy orange-tan body. Big, foamy off-white head. Kind of has a flowery, sort of phenolic thing going on. Not really that impressive, sort of a let down, I expected more. The yeast is too aggressive, and it has herbal, spicy characteristics that seem out of place for the style, maybe right for a spicy US Saison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 02-01-2012. This canned IPA pours a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a long retention, gold hazy body and virtually no lacing. The aroma is malty, yeasty, citrus, pine hops, and semi-sweet. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt, herbal, citrus, and pine hops. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable with an enjoyable all around good flavor. It is not an overly hoppy tasting IPA and it is worth trying.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with an airy taupe head that lets you know where its been. Aroma is floral and yeasty with some herbs, citrus and mild fruit. Taste is probably right down the middle of Belgian ale and IPA. Yeast, fruit, floral hops, esters and mild bitterness. Itís okay, but Iím not a huge fan of this style, though Iíd like to see someone make a hoppy dubbel instead of a hoppy bland ass Belgian pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours light orange with little head. Has that Belgian yeast thing on the nose. The yeast is pretty strong on the tongue as well but the this hop presence kind of smacks you in the nose. Finishes clean without a lot of bitterness. I donít think the IPA elements combine well with the Belgian yeast thing.
