4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Translucent pale gold color with gigantic fluffy white head that lasts forever- reminds me of Duvel. Strong bretty aroma. Flavor is grassy with fruity hop flavor and malty finish. Not sure if IPA or Saison, either way it tastes amazing

355 ml bottle @ Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki.
Pours an unclear yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of citrus, brett and some strong caramel. Flavour of strong citrus. bitter floral hops, brett, dry hay and alcohol. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a sharp, warming bitter finish. Strong and refreshing. Well done.

has more foam than taste. Why is IPA in the name of the beer? Does not have a hop flavor, Did Flying Dog add hops to their beer? Overall, an ok saison.

Tap - average size thick head, light copper color, hoppy Belgian yeasty aroma and flavor, as the name indicates, like a hopped up saison

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear rich yellow to light amber pour with a monster of a white head. Very interesting balance of a citrus-based IPA and funky saison. Sharp bitterness late in this one.

Dry and refreshing, not sure how that works, but it does. Good with a summer risotto

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-golden color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was funky citrus, catbox, lemon, chalk and an off tart undertone. The flavor was funky, dry and musty with some horseblanket, tart citrus and chalk. The finish was very long, dry and musty with funk and horseblanket lingering. Medium body. Odd.

People weren’t kidding about the foam on this beer I poured a little past the label and the glass is about to over flow with white foam. Slow to dissipate, appears in large bubbles on the side of the glass. Smells strongly of spices, cloves, and Belgian yeast. Cloudy, light yellow/orange appearance. The yeast is particularly strong in the taste. The spices and cloves are pretty light and balanced by the hops. Taste of orange peel is prominent throughout the experience. Finishes bitter and dry, eliminating the first taste that hit your palate. Interesting brew with a lot of complexity, I’m sure others may taste some different elements. Not exactly my style but I’m still drinking it trying to figure it all out which I’m digging.
