3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale, hazy, light, translucent, yellow color. Delicate aromas of citrus, soapy florals, and yeast define the nose. The palate is much the same.. It smells as it tastes and is well balanced in that way. Lighter bodied and refreshing, with little to no bitterness. Pretty, perfumed florals and yeast drive the delicate, lingering finish. Simple, enjoyable and so easy to drink. Would be great on a warm day in the sun. More of a belgium ale, then an IPA for sure.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thid white head, over a cloudy amber (SRM 8) body.....nose is pine, heavy citrus, light toffee/caramel.....taste is pine, heavy citrus peel, light malts....mouth feel medium, carbonation high adding major spritz. This is an interesting variation in the evolution of IPA’s. It is very hop dominated with the aromas and flavors typical of Cascade and Citra with the malts adding a bit of balance. It is light, refreshing, but the Belgian yeast was hidden. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

Light yellow/straw with bright white head. Light citrus aroma with a touch of grain as well. Flavor is light grain and just a but of good. I wish it was hoppier. Nice and clean and refreshing though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Old Chicago Colorado Springs (1/27/12). Color is a hazy yellow/orange with mellow carbonation and a thick tight head. Aroma of hops and citrus. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor starts with a mellow citrus that comes across lemony then some light malt. In the after taste more citrus shows. Overall its OK, needs more White characteristics.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden, white head, lots of bubbles. Floral nose. Strong bite is the first thing I notice, followed by the wild yeast then the floral hops. Good and refreshing if.you can stand the bite.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, Oct. 6. Pours a cloudy pale yellow-gold with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Nice aroma of pepper, hops, herbs, citrus and Belgian yeast. Flavour of citrus and pepper along with Belgian yeast and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I really enjoyed it. Underrated in my opinion but I do love the mix of pepper and hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow foggy pour from bottle with no head. Lemony aroma. Hoppy notes in there but more wheat and shandy traits than IPA. But I kinda like it anyway
