3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours a hazy orange with a white foam head. Aroma of grapefruit and citrus. Light citrusy grapefruit taste with a nice hop hit. No sense of zest from the Belgian side. Very smooth and tasty but seems more like a straight IPA.

Nose is all piney, citrus hop. Nice light amber color with a creamy off-white head. Unique flavor! Sweet citrus that reveals a light spice and clove middle that slowly fades to a floral hop finish. Perfect blend of Belgian and IPA -- the best Belgian IPA I’ve had!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear orange with a finger of sudsy off white head. Really gorgeous color, that I’m not doing justice.
You get a burst of hop aroma right out of the bottle, with strong, sweet oranges. But there’s also a bready note, some banana, bubblegum and slight caramel. Really delicious nose.
Wow! Lots of sweet orange on the attack, with dark dried fruits, banana, bubblegum, dough. Finish has a dose of pine resin, more sweet orange and a little stonefruit flavour, slight bit of biscuit and just a hint of warming alcohol.
Mouthfeel is really smooth with a medium to heavy body.
This is an exceptional beer. Looks great, smells great, tastes great and feels good in the mouth. Not much more you could ask for.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I admit. I bought this beer because it had the best label of any beer I’ve ever had. I’m not a fan of the whole Belgian/IPA thing. If I were, I would say this would rate very high. Aroma was Belgian yeast, pepper and bubblegum. Pour was a nice hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Taste was the usual battle between the strong Belgian yeast and the grassy American hops. Slightly dry with not enough carbonation to carry the finish through. Got a little too sweet as it warmed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber to glass. Pours a hazy golden amber color. Aroma is Belgian yeast, tropical fruit, citrus hops. Taste is yeast, banana, citrus fruit with some slight hop bitterness. Alcohol is slightly detectable, mild burn. Palate is somewhat oily, medium carbonation. Cool combination of two styles.

Bottle. Yeast and bready caramel malt aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet fruitcake, malt and alcohol flavor. Mildly bitter herbal finish. A bit rough but not bad.
