Taste of citrus fruits, pine, grapefruit, resiny tobacco, spices, caramel, and a bit of alcohol in the finish. Reminiscent of the old McKenzie Vuuve.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From growler courtesy of santos999. Nice grassy herbal hops aroma, very fragrant, short of pungent. Alcohol sweetness and some nice pale malt with Belgian yeasty notes, tangerine, pine. Hazy dark amber-orange, with thin head. Medium body with medium-heavy carbonation and mild alcohol warming. Starts with medium malt sweetness and some honey, carbonic bite and light fruity hops. Hops kick up next, with tons of resin and citrus notes, but not a ton of bitterness here. Finish is medium bitter, with a bit of chalky after and nice bitter nutty character with Belgian yeasty notes. Nice Belgian IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2010 Am I really the first to rate this? It is already listed with RB. Thanks to Adrian for sharing a delicious growler of this IPA. Sweet, hoppy aroma with a little cheese. A fine, full IPA. I could taste gingerbread, orange, pine, and honey. The finish was minty and drying. This is bracing without being hard, and the flavor holds up thru several glasses - great stuff.
