4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a murky, dark gold; white head with good lacing. Piney and dank hop aromas dominate but Belgian yeast does come through; slightly musty. Sweet, tropical hops mesh with yeast phenolics and a soft, bitter finish. Full bodied, medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very cloudy deep orange, offwhite head that’s very short. Very fragrant - scent of juicy citrus hops and belgian yeast, bready, sweet and a little bubblegum and rye. Tingly mouthfeel, lively carbonation, oily finish. Flavors of citrus and pine hops, bitter cloves with belgian yeast and rye maybe. Somewhat disconnected between the belgian and IPA. Nothing bad at all, just nothing groundbreaking.

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a lot of belgian yeast, orange peel, and a lot of floral notes. The taste is light bitter, big orange juice, lemon juice, slight peppery finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orangey copper, like a new penny. This is all hops, from the nose to the palate and to the finish. Bright citrus hops! The 10% abv is apparent from the first sip!

Heavy hitter with Belgian elements of citrus, raisin, dough, and some floral hops in there as well. This work; it is big; it will hurt you. serving size: 22oz split bomber.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a cloudy, bright, a bit reddish, orange appearance with a lasting cream colored head. Big candy / bubblegum, bright tropical fruity, grapefruity, lemon, a bit dank, light banana aroma. Fairly sweet, passion fruit, grapefruit, mango, Smarties, a bit tangy flavor with some herbal / floral elements on the finish. Kind of an interesting beer that is surprisingly easy to drink.

Golden coloured and unclear. Has a white head, medium duration. Hoppy aroma, heavy hoppy, citrus and other fruits. Bitter flavor. Texture a bit like dry paper.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Bob’s Bar. Pours a cloudy amber-gold color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of earthy yeast, citrus and floral hops. The finish is sweet with a clove and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is very sweet caramel, sugar, yeast and milk. Bright orange appearance with decent lace. Very very sweet flavors of orange, mango, pineapple, peach. Very sweet, fruity flavors with a biscuit/bready malt base. Finish brings an apricot, yeast, caramel, honey and some faint booze that warms you as you sit. Overall, it’s definitely not bad but, it’s a little too sweet for my taste. I would like to see this beer with some more bitter hops rather than fruity hops. I’d give this a B rating.

Flaske: Orange uklar øl med et lille skumhoved. Duft af frugtet gær og en smule humle. Smagen er rigtig lækker med et godt humlebid og masser af belgisk gær. Ok hybrid.
