COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian-style IPA is brewed using four malts, three hop varieties and is fermented with authentic Belgian Trappist yeast. Dry hopping this ale ensures a highly-hopped nirvana.

Hazy orange color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is straight up grain and hop pellets. Taste has a little biscuit followed by hop pellets and an aggressive and sharp bitterness that borders on being astringent. Also get some musty and slight oxidized flavors. Finishes dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is thin with a medium carbonation. Flavors are sort of harsh and tastes like a mediocre home brew.

Drank out of the bottle at Flanerys in STL. I did not remotely enjoy this. Stinky and gross.

kaser (2100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Weird. Poured from bottle at flannerys. Super bitter. Fruity musty and off taste. Not sure what I think - not very enjoyable. Bananna and citrus taste just too bitter

wlajwl (3546) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Aroma is very light Belgian yeast and biscuit malts. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, hop resin notes, light fruit/bubble gum and a tart/bitter finish. Wasn’t expecting good based on the aroma, the flavor was better.

Had interesting hopes for this beer, but was slightly let down. Interesting aroma but weak palate, slightly watery, slightly sour bitters. Pass.

Onionkid (359) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is of weak yeast, fruit and hops. Tastes like a watered down, hoppy belgian. Finish is bland, as is the beer overall. Not awful, though. 7% alcohol.

jcnielsen (1711) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a reddish color with white head. Caramel, earthy aromas. Bitter, earthy, caramel flavors. Not really a lot of hoppy flavor here. Hmm... Where are the hops?

EtTuCthulhu (897) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2013
This beer’s aroma is purely citrus hops, but the appearance is a clear copper color with a medium, off-white head. The taste is mildly bitter and a touch sweet, and the palate combines a bitter finish, medium body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.

RobertDale (2927) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2013
22 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and yeast. Taste is citrus, pine, yeast, malt, and grass. Not sure about this IPA. Missed the mark.

ArrogantDusty (40) - Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours a nice dark amber color. Has a small amount of head that is tan in color and goes away quickly. Definitely not transparent. A very hazy appearance. I get a fruity smell or orange and lemon right in the front of my nose. A nice roasted malt character, and hops that pack some punch.
