arminjewell (5718) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, grapefruit, slight grass, pine notes in there go into a hint of biscuit and bread but the hops take it over. Taste is a mix of white fruit, slight orange, grapefruit into some pine, grass, some biscuit, bready notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty nice.

Lupulucid (185) - - DEC 14, 2013
Release #9 6.1% ABV Brainless is a balanced but expressive IPA. Yeast character melds with crisp hops that are a touch racy on the finish with lingering citrus peel flavor. Some of the flavors are delicate and balance helps keep these from being drowned out.

milewide (1391) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Hop forward, with less Belgium yeast aroma and taste than expected. Cloudy amber color. Definitely an IPA and not a Belgium!

BOSSbrewer (1316) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours a very hazy pale golden with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor is lemony and cut grass. Slightly tart. Not too bitter. Overall a smooth ipa. Nice beer.

notalush (4638) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Draft at Denver tap room - cloudy gold with a thick, lasting head - a very nice example of this "style" - creamy body and texture - intense but non-abrasive American hoppiness is complimented well by some citric and lightly funky Belgian yeas notes - tropical finish is semi-dry, despite some higher than expected sweetness through the middle - tasty.

hayduke (3160) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 2, 2013
This as a 22 oz bottle. Strykzone had one too, and we drank ii at the same time and discussed on Faxeook Chat. This poured amber-orange with on off-white and really beautiful lacing rings, Nose is citrus hops along with ripe tropical fruit and some spice. Medium plus in body with a very resinous mouthfeel. Sticky in the mouth. The flavor is very tasty, with stone fruit, citrus hops, and a bit spice. The finish is more flavor than bitterness and there is enough of both. This is a very nice and better than average IPA, thought called "Belgian=Style" except for the fruit is right in the realm of West Coast IPA.. Delightful.

Strykzone (4479) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. I rolled my bottle and some yeast was loosened. That made for a hazy beer. It is honey gold and has a big off white head that slowly fades leaving sticky lacing. In the aroma I get tropical fruit hop notes. Those are also tasted. Tangerine. There is a good bit of yeast but it doesn’t really taste Belgian. I get a grapefruit tartness that is nice and builds throughout the glass. Malts play second fiddle here. They are pale and add some sweetness but not a lot of flavor. I like this but never did get but a little Belgian yeast and no candi sugar. It is more of a yeasty west coast IPA. I do like that the malts are so far back and not caramel. That lets the hops shine.

DiarmaidBHK (3170) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle from Taproom. Pours slightly orange with a khaki head. Has a nice floral nose. Balances perfectly the hoppiness of the IPA and the Belgian base. Finishes clean. Nice!
