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

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. Thereís nothing outstanding about this brew, but itís really good, solid, and exceptional. Probably the best "session" Belgo-IPA Iíve 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Pours a clear copper-orange color with a big layer of frothy off-white head atop. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of Belgian yeasts and some sweet caramel malts with a bit of citrus hops taking the back seat. Overall, a bit weak.
T - Starts off with some nice sweet caramel malts and Belgian yeast. The hop flavor is very mild at the start. Through the middle, the citrus hops get a bit stronger with a touch of bitterness coming through as well. The yeast also gets a bit deeper and more bready. The finish is a mix of some light bitterness, a bit of sweet caramel malts, and some bready yeast flavor that lingers.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. The beer feels fairly smooth and crisp. The bready yeast flavor really lingers for quite a while.
D - Very drinkable. The beer feels a little off balanced with the hop flavor really not standing up next to the strength of the yeast and malts. I like the depth of the yeast flavor, and just a bit more hops could make this a winner.

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 donít think I would class it as an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz can. Pours amber with a white head. Light grassy, floral hop aroma. Flavor is similar, floral, grassy, hints of citrus hops. Itís an alright pale ale on its own, but Iím not sure where the "Belgian" is supposed to come in.
