Wonderful golden color, with a strong malty taste. Very very clean to palate. Wonderful stuff!

aroma is very sweet, hoppy, citrus, beautiful. light spice. Tastes similar. Strong hoppy, citrus, yeasty, a little spice. A fairly dry finish, but still fairly juicy.

On tap (nitro). One of the better straightforward belgian IPAs I’ve had. The creamy mouthfeel from the nitro made this very enjoyable.

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!

Superb Belgian-style IPA. Cloudy copper pour with an everlasting white head, befitting the style. Grapefruit aroma. Solid malty and slightly sweet foundational flavor, infused by grapefruit hoppiness, with just a hint of bitterness. Very, very harmonious in flavor. Some sweetness lingers. My only nit -- and it's super minor -- is I wouldn't mind seeing more "Belgianness" come thru, perhaps in the sweetness. But this is an easy-drinking IPA that is quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Release #2 bottle purchased the evening of 1/26/13 at Epic in SLC. Colour...slightly cloudy golden with a frothy white head. Nose... A freakin hop fest for the nose! Redolent of crushed hop cones, pine resin and grapefruit sugar. Palate...immediately sharp and hoppy with a tangy, bitter overtone and hop leaf with a nearly white wine aspect. A dandy ipa!

bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Nose is a nice fresh citrusy hoppy scent. Flavor is very tangerine like right away, the rest of the hop character comes through after that. Very solid Belgian Ipa. The Belgian yeast is very suddle which makes this beer better, I’m not a fan of Belgian Ipas with overly dominant yeasty character if that makes sense lol!! Enjoy all!!

Release #11 Pours unclear strong orange, fairly lasting, good lace. Medium to white frothy creamy white head. Aroma is west coast hoppy; fresh, yeasty, fruity, citrus, light spiciness. Medium body, creamy super smooth. Very pleasant moderate bitterness balanced with just enough sweetness. Among the better IPA’s I’ve had.
