Draft at Capone’s. Pours very turbid orange with minimal head. Nose is earthy, rock sugary malty, with tropical citrus and hops. Tastes veru rich, very black peppery, with notes of canteloupe, tangerine, mango, and an intense finish. Complex on the palate, this one is very good.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Draft at brewery, rating taken from notes. Amberish in color with a clear body. Sticky lace and almost non existant white head. Aroma of malt/caramel, citrus in orange and lime, and yeasty cobwebs. Has a light and fizzy carbonation with little tiny bubbles. Thin on the palate. Flavor is moderately bitter, moderately sweet, lightly acidic, and long in duration. Has a lasting bitter and slightly piny finish with lingering ctirus tartness balanced by some sweetness. Very interesting beer and a bit warming. Nice hoppiness with the yeasty fizzy character of some of the Belgians.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Clear golden orange with a small white fizzy head. Grapefruit and lime aroma. Thick sticky syrupy palate. Strong sweet refreshing citrus tastes: orange, grapefruit, lemon with a sweet hoppy finish. At 9% alcohol, this is still a very drinkable beer.

DenverLogan (796) - MileHi, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Golden; small head. Straw and hop aroma and flavor. Big, rich, biting, white pepper, yet very tasty. The Belgian yeast makes this IPA very tasting and interesting. Drank at brewery. This yeast was first used in their Limelite Wit, then the Belchin brown, and now the Hoppy Friar!

Bartzilla (533) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Cask. Hamilton’s. Complimented the sausage platter nicely. Hoppy, yet distinctly Belgian in flavor. Super cloudy. Can’t see though it. Almost like delicious hoppy sweet gravy. I love gravy and I love beer, so there’s no reason why I wouldn’t be crazy about this ale. Well, I am crazy about this ale. And sausages because beer and sausages go well with each other. Like coffee & smokes or ham & swiss. Some shit just works well together.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2007 On tap @ brewery. CBC is on FIRE. This is another great beer from them. It’s like 70% IPA and 30% Belgian golden ale, and it works flawlessly. Hoppy, yet drinkable and tasty.

Belgian Style IPA on Cask at Hamilton’s 2nd Saturday 7/14/07. This was a really nice treat and tasty pretty strange and different. Pours a really interestingly thick apple cider look with a color that is pretty similar to that mashed fruit look with a thin head. I know that description is bad but it kinda looked like baby food in liquid form. The aroma was a bit yeasty with a nice light hoppy belgian vibe. The taste is light with hoppy grapefruit notes. Some wood also comes through. This was extremely smooth and easy to drink. One hell of a cask beer.
