3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hop forward, with less Belgium yeast aroma and taste than expected. Cloudy amber color. Definitely an IPA and not a Belgium!

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

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!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque peachy orange. Lots of lacing, a medium white frothy head. Crisp, clean, nice fruit, some sense of sweet, and very surprisingly good. There is some nice stickiness to it and its balanced nicely. Belgium side of this beer is not up front, but slightly present and for an IPA, I prefer that. It is good!

Points for originality on this one, great taste in an unprecedented combination - come on - IPA and Belgian?!? May not be unique, but certainly rare!
TRY THIS BEER!
