3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A cloudy golden hue with a nice white head, some nice retention and mild lace. Aroma had a nice hop profile and a banana note from the yeast. Flavor was initially sweet caramel malt notes and a fruity yeasty quality. Hops then took over which were bitter enough to balance out the sweetness and give the beer a nice dry finish.

Orangish pour with an off white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy with lots of citrus and honey. Flavor is a wonderful meld of sweet malt and rich citrus hops. Smooth and really well done.

Interesting vanilla, woody, yeasty and slight hoppie. The man overpowering taste is the belgian yeast flavour. Overall its good beer

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A=Light golden-copper with medium head, leaving great lacing which sticks to the glass a good while.
S&T=More on the malty side. I notice a lot of sweet malt/barley, and less hops. Hops are there, just more restrained for me. Tasty, though not an ideal IPA.
M=Medium, with average carbonation.
Very good, an interesting new style for me. Though I prefer hoppier, this is a nice change. Will have again sometime.

12oz bottle. Pours golden with white head. Nose has spicy phenolic yeast with florals bananas and pear. Flavors are spicy, floral, honeydew, and grass. Long soft bitterness. Good clean fermentation. Hops, yeast, and well attenuation all working nicely here. Why am I just know finding out about this beer?

This is the first IPA I have enjoyed. That makes me happy. You can really smell the hops on this one but it doesn’t taste like your chewing on pine cones. Very nice balance Flying Dog. I appreaciate your work. Woot! Woot!

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Poured a clear amber/golden with a smallish white head. It has that IPA hoppiness right away and then some grassy, fruit notes. Great Beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of yeast and resins, and underlying grassy hops. Cloudy clay orange color, almost white creamy head, and lots of soapy lacing. Taste is nicely balanced, and definitely has the belgian beer character it claims. Spicy hops and dark malt with a spicy finish.
