Tap at Sugar Maple. Unfiltered orange-tan. Foamy, lacy off-white head. Hot damn, thatís a good Belgian IIPA, maybe one of the best Iíve had. Smooth and clean, heavy on the tropical tones. World Class, this is quite phenomenal. Rich and big, but sublime lemon -lime tones. Beastly, like a good Belgian should be. Spot on.

On draft at the GABF in 2013. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a white head. Tart nose. Sweet bran muffin flavor. Smooth finish.

From a bomber. Pours hazy amber brown with a frothy white head. Tastes bitter and tart, like raisins, tobacco, alcohol, and ash. Medium body and carbonation. Smells slightly tart, like raisins and bread.

sonnycheeba (3042) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear, vibrant amber with thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and biscuit malts, floral hops, belgian yeast, citrus fruit, and some spice. Flavor is a balance of dry bready malts and fresh grassy hop bitterness with some grapefruit and citrus esters and light spice; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

GTAEgeek (1053) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Growler from J.U.G.S. Caramel color, with a big, tan head. The aroma is rye, big caramel and malts, light resinous hops, bananas, and light spiciness. The flavor is sweet and malty, with a pretty hefty hop bitterness. Heavy body, sticky, and chalky and malty. Overall, this is a very strong, very malty, and very hoppy beer. The balance and palate is lacking, unfortunately.

Hazy deep amber beer with a big fluffy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth but with fine prickly carbonation. Light creamy malt. Mild minerals. Sweet malt but with a bitterish yeast. Slightly resinous tangerine and orange. Finishes semi dry with a mild peel bitter linger. Comes together quite well. Drinkable.

9/16/13. 22oz bottle thanks to Brent! Canít believe I havenít had this one. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Loads of orangey citrus on the aroma, candy sugar. Sweet flavor, orange peel, candy sugar, tangerines. Not bad.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Orange like a nectarine. A bruised nectarine. Cloudy and muddled; yellow tinted, soapy and lavish head leaves behind great lace and takes forever to sink. Aroma is peppery... Lots of white pepper. Ashy hops, leafy, some minty bubblegum comes through with clove and fruity esters; must be that Belgian yeast. Taste is is minty, clove, phenolic to the core; Belgian yeast shines here. Chunky, gummy wintergreen with some extra pepper on the back. Ashy hop bitterness. A little too phenolic and a touch medicinal on the back end. Relatively low for the size, though. Medium bodied, not quite syrupy but relatively plentiful. Mid-high carbonation. Hope you like your Belgian ales spicy and minty.

Cloudy orangish color. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Hops upfront, middle and long bitter finish. Notes of orange and subtle Belgian Malts. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours a beautiful golden amber. Very sweet and and fresh aroma. Very good balance, if not without a ton of flavor. Pretty on point belgian ale.
