amber pour with little head. Slightly hazy from yeast sediment. Smells of orange zest and pine. Taste is astringently bitter with dry bitter lingering finish on te sides of the palate. Missing the malt backbone for this amount of hops. Belgian flavors are there from the yeast but this is nothing special.

Tap. Hazy orange color, excellent lacing. Nice lightly hopped aroma with some orange zest. Taste is like a hoppy Belgian style ale, or hefeweizen, in the sense that it has a fruity/bread body from the yeast. Some zest in the finish leaves a citrus aftertaste. Nice beer.

Wow not what I expected at all when I drank this I love hops but the spices were way too overpowering for me. It was stronger than the hops. To me a very strong clove taste, and this is from someone who enjoys a clove cig. So if you like spices you will enjoy this

Hated the look (like a soda), generic smell of hops, then was pleasantly surprised. Bitter, hoppy, but smooth, a solid IPA that I'd have again. Careful with this one!

Bottle into a fluted glass. Very orange pour with a bit of white head with minimal lacing. Slightly funky belgian yeast aroma. Taste is very bitterly hop forward with orange, spice, and a bit of white bread.

Bottle. Pours hazy butterscotch amber with a medium off-white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is citrus, yeast, bready malt. Flavor is the same, citrus forward, lightly sweet with a light bitter body increasing in bitterness at the finish as the orange peel kicks in and adds zesty, lightly bitter tones. Definitely Belgian yeast character throughout. Pretty good beer - would be better without the orange peel, I think.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep amber with a small head.
Nose shows herbal hops and spicy Belgian notes along with orange blossom and light sweet malt.
Pretty aggressive flavour. Some spicy Belgian notes and earthy, herbal hops before a little malt shows up to be swallowed by the assertive sharp bitterness.
Too much carbonation.

The malts, hops and yeast battle for the smell. It is a deep cloudy amber. It taste pass though the bitter hops sweet malts and finally rests you on the yeasts. It stains the palate pleasntly for a few minutes after the sip. Its a great beer lots of flavor to explore that comes together nicely.

Bottle shared by the Bierkoning crew, thanks! Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruity hops with grapefuit, peach and a hint of citrus. Taste is sweet malty with some peach and grapfruit, medium bitter finish. Medium body and carbo.
