3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber purchased at Bine and Vine ($7.99). Pours a hazy sunset-orange hue with almost three fingers of frothy white foam. Aroma of fruit (citrus and pear), floral-herby hops, Belgian yeast, and some bready malts. Flavor has lots of crisp fruity notes (citrus and some tropical fruit), semi-tart Belgian yeast, and some sweet-ish caramel. The finish is dry and moderately bitter finish mixed with some fruity sweetness. Decent Belgian-IPA mashup. (114, 726)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Leafy, fruity, citrus hops on the nose. Pours a light gold with a moderate foam at the the top. Taste is bitter hops with a subtle spice and lemon finish. Overall, a flavorful IPA with nice hops and light carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange amber with a tall dense head.
Hops are light and have a more earthy aroma, malts are sweetish.
Taste is hoppy and bitter with a light spice from the yeast.
Drinks well, too well considering the 9% al.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured an incredibly murky and soupy pale yellow-orange with a medium sized frothy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was strong lemon, orange and grapefruit. The flavor was tart and bitter with notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pepper, chalk and yeast. The beer turned dry towards the long finish with orange, tropical fruits and chalk lingering. Thick and full body. Quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This definitely has aromas of an IPA and a Belgian ale; grassy, citrusy hops and spiciness. These all follow into the taste with lemony, citrus hop bitterness and an afterbite of Belgian yeast peppery spice. Starts off a cloudy medium orange/yellow with a medium but quickly dissipating white head, then later in the pour a lot of chunks show up, so the sediment is not very settled. Visually not great, but it doesnít affect the flavor. Finishes with a lingering spicy bitterness. Nice combination of Belgian ale and IPA.

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie, servied as a IIPA. Poured hazy orange with some white lacing. Medium bodied. Citrusy, piney taste mixed with spicy, bready hops. Dig the subtle spicey character on this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught. A bit darker and hazy with a white head. Citrus, sugary sweet, bright fruits, light yeast spices, and a nice bitter hop bite. Has a nice grapefruit and light spicy yeast bite on the finish. The Belgian influence is a little more mild than many BIPAs that Iíve had and I think that makes this work so well. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate complex earth hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate duration. This is a very good beer.

You can definetly tell the hops have started to fade. Malty smell with a little bit of hops that still come through. Maybe simcoe. Earthy body and the hops come through in the mouth and fade in the throat. Will have to look at my review of on draft to see if it deserves better.
