3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark orange with a beige head and aroma of citrus, grass, and yeast. Taste is bitter sweet, citrus comes trough with grass and floral notes and the Belgain yeast with a bitter, dry finish. Very drinkable, solid brew

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looking forward to trying some stuff from this brewery! A medium off-white head pours out of the can on top of a copper body. Light scattered lacing left on the glass after each sip. The aroma is citrusy, with wild floral notes; definitely pick up the Belgian yeast. Some pine is burried in the scent as well. The flavors mostly follow that; less citrusy perhaps, and more of a resinous/pine hop flavor combining with the Belgian yeast element. It’s more IPA than Belgian Ale, the yeast just adds a different element without getting in the way, which I like. It has firm bitterness but nothing over the top; nice and dry in the finish. The body is a shade light; at least moreso than expected, but I’d hardly categorize it as thin. I like this. Sometimes the flavors can clash in these Belgian IPAs but this one works quite well.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Bottles & Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after work, hopefully on one of the last sub-zero days of this winter. Appearance is a lightly cloudy amber gold with a moderate white head that lightly laces to the glass. Aroma of peppermint, light citrus and light tart and clove. Taste finishes with a nice dry bitterness, light tart, light piney hops, nicely done. There’s nothing outstanding about this brew, but it’s really good, solid, and exceptional. Probably the best "session" Belgo-IPA I’ve had yet.

Golden pour with a white head with a little lacing, Grassy and citrusy aroma. Taste is similar with some maltiness on the backend. Pretty good.

Can. Clear amber, thin head. Strong hop aroma like a traditional IPA but with more sweetness from the yeast. I enjoyed this and would definitely have again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper orange with medium lacing. Nose of light spicy belgian yeast esters. Taste has elements of spicy belgian yeast notes, bitter citrus hops, and bitter finish. Not a fan of the style, but one of the less offensive offerings out there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus hop aroma, pours a slightly hazy amber with a full white head. The Belgian yeast esters are the predominant flavor, with some grassy hop notes coming forward in the finish. Lingering fruity notes, not a bad beer but I don’t think I would class it as an IPA.

Sampled right after Tree Hugger, and prefer this. Slight Belgian sweetness infuses what is otherwise a solid IPA.
