Orange color. Nice white head but settles pretty quickly. Complex aroma withhops and some vegetable. Nice bitter flavor. The Belgian yeast is not very prevalent until the pint is almost gone. Good all around. A little orange peel in the finish.

From big bottle. Pours cloudy amber with white head. Orange and citrus explode with crisp, tart carbonated pungency. The Belgian yeast is not front and center like some, but more of an accompaniment that rounds out with sweeter esters in a subtle fashion. Definite bitter finish. I’m a big fan of Stone’s Cali-Begique and New Belgium’s Belgo, and this one seems very much in line with those fine West coast hop-infused concoctions. Very nice indeed!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, yeast, coriander seed, a bit of caramel and some nice fragrant hops. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hops with a good nutty and herbal bite, showing some of the yeast characteristics and a lot of apricot and earthiness of the malt. Aftertaste is quite bitter from the hops with a nice pleasant yeastie and caramel kick. Overall, a nice ipa with a good complexity toward earthy malt and yeast. Very nice and good to sample. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia for US$6.99 on 09-October-2011 sampled at home in New Paltz, New York on 24-November-2011.

I like the flying dog raging bitch better, but this one is also very good. Hazy light copper color, thin white head and minimal lacing. Hops and Belgian yeast strains in the aroma, hops and belgian triple floralness in the taste and palate. Very enjoyable

On tap. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a creamy off-white head leaving dense curtains of lacework. Intensely hoppy aroma with plenty of exotic and somewhat herbal hop accents. Medium-bodied, very interesting tropical fruit notes with an almost perfumy edge. A little yeast as well. The finish is dry and bitter. Excellent. 201111
