brenn79 (1662) - Idaho, USA - APR 10, 2015
22 oz bottle, my bottle reads release #23? Pours hazy orange with a huge at least three finger white head and cobwebby lace. Aroma is fresh hops, it actually smells like fresh picked off the vine hops, strong lupulin, citrus, piney, medium weight malt. The taste is very much like the aroma, there is a nice fruity Belgian quality, strong citrus, yeasty, sturdy bitterness with enough complexity to not be overbearing. The carbonation could have been higher, a bit soft. Decent, I assumed the Brainless series was all about fruit, but i guess not. After i posted my review i went on their website and looked up some stuff, i now realize this bottle that i am now drinking and rated relatively high was bottled on 8-25-14, over seven months ago. This still tastes good, assuming from the Belgian influence, but would love to try a fresher bottle.

natejgood (405) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours very light golden with bubbles rising slowly to the surface. Initially there was almost no head, but eventually a small white head built from beneath. Aroma of citrus, honey and a hint of green grass. Definitely has a Belgian flavor to it - a bit malty for an IPA and also vert smooth in the mouth. Balanced with a nice citrus flavor and a reasonable hop flavor, though these beer is by no means overhopped or bitter. I enjoyed drinking this beer and it was flavorful without being overdone.
