4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Acquired in a trade. Bottle in Vail with my dad. Poured a clear amber in color with a big off-white, two-finger head and amazing lacing. Aroma is spicy, earthy hops, belgian yeast, bread, and sweet fruits. Taste is earthy hops, clove, a touch off banana, mango, bread, and caramel, with a light bittersweet finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very well-balanced Belgian IPA, and super smooth; really tasty stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice "roasty" cloudy amber. Nice head which is retained. Aroma is strong and the beglian goods come straight out. Nice initial hoppy bitterness with a smooth neutral finish. This is one of the best beers I have tried in a while.

Fridge temp out of the bottle is a little harsh. I get way too much booze for 7%. By the second half of the bomber it warms up and gets quite enjoyable. Nice balance of citrus hops and belgian ester tang. The yeast gives it a little creaminess.

Amber color. The aroma of caramel has just some hops too. Moderate caramel flavor, with decent resiny hops; correct bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kuparin punainen olut valkoisella, vähäisellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu on sitrushedelmäinen, persikkainen ja mausteinen. Maku on katkera, greippinen, appelsiininkuorinen ja korianterisen mausteinen. Keskihiilihapokas, miellyttävä belgi-ipa.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red-orange color, a wispy finger of head. Cloudy with medium carbonation.
Pungent blood oranges with a spicy Belgian funk. Citrus and flowers. The best of a West Coast IPA and a Belgian ale.
Flavor is a more earthy malt than the flavor would suggest, similar to that of an amber. The citrus acts as an accent to the soil-like malts. Doesn’t quite live up to the aroma.
Feel is dry and sandpapery. It’s a very solid, earthy beer with a citrus finish. Assuming it’s reasonably-priced, a nice middle-of-the-road beer.
