3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2011 Gold color, draft. Minimal head. Arom of citrus, honey. Interesting taste on this IPA. The hops are there, but it takes on more of a belgium beer taste. Def would get again.
Rerate- bottle this time. Med head, lacing around glass. Still getting mostly citrus hops in the aroma (wanting more of the belgium yeast flavors. Flavors of citrus, pine and some honey. Medium-lite body, slightly creamy texture, alcohol is well hidden. This is still a great beer. May want to get a case of it.

bottle. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. nose is of Belgian yeast, spices and it’s a bit perfumy. Taste is of bread and spices with bubblegum and fruity hops. Pretty tasty stuff. Mouthfeel is medium and mildly bitter.

Not a big fan of Belgian IPAs I must admit, but with the Ralph Steadman art I had to give it a shot. If you are a fan of the maltiness of beer, it is certainly worth your dollar. A sweet taste which is occasionally masked by a false IPA-ness, it is a good brew that would be better as a pint rather than a six pack.

A big hop bite with just the right amount of belgian sweetness swirling in the mix. Surprisingly enjoyable.

Fruit and bubblegum Belgian yeast aroma. Interesting blend of Belgian yeast character with a definite American IPA backbone. Very nice.

12oz bottle 11/14/10 (Binny’s-Downers Grove)-52° in Snifter-Pours an orangish red with a small loose off white head. Aroma of hops, Belgian yeast, and citrus. Taste of Belgian yeast and then some hops and then more yeast. This medium bodied brew is quite tasty and this style is becoming one of my favorites. Nice job.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at the Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Clear orange body, medium white head. Aroma of hops, very bitter. Nettles? The taste is pure hops! WTF... not balanced, not deep. It’s like a triple produced in a laboratory according to a recipe! Interesting though, it this was a vodka it’d be grain-flavoured...
