4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle - Pours a pale copper color with a decent white head. Aroma of sweet citrus hops, grasses, spruce and cloves. Taste is hops, caramel malt, grass and a bit of spruce/pine. A great combination of the belgian characteristics witht the IPA! Alcohol is very subtle. Very drinkable and enjoyable. I loved this brew! Outstanding.

The Bitch has a lot of citrus about it, but goes about being fruity in the best way possible. Noticed the alcohol slightly, but the complex citrus and hops played off each other beautifully with a slight, but welcome, bitter ending.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good solid head on a clear orange body. Some grapefruit and some pine on the aroma. Taste is good, bitterness noticeable but not intense, body seems a little light and fairly easily to drink, overall very drinkable for me and I don’t notice the alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear golden orange with attractive white head. Aromas of caramel, grass, cherry, apple, banana, spice, yeast and alcohol. Flavors of caramel, biscuit, cherry, apple, banana, butterscotch, herbs, bubblegum, and alcohol. Alcohol cuts through way too much. Medium body with oily mouthfeel and moderate, soft carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle-i was suprised to find this on the shelve-i thought this only came in 750’s. clear deep orange with a soapy white head. nose is citrus hops, funky yeasty goodness, belgian malts that smelled a bit plastic at cold, but as it warmed, it became more round. lots of flowery notes as well. flavors are piney hops, sweet belgian malts but the hops here dominate. the belgian malts make this beer a bit unique and different but again, the pine and resin hops dominate. long estery and piney finish. great body with lots of slickness and medium carbonation, unlike many from this brewery. their 2nd best? i think so (behind Gonzo)

33cl bottle. Pours orange with a medium tanned head. Medium lasting foam. Aroma is spiced and hoppy with caramel notes. Taste is a good balance between sweetness and bitterness, with dry finish. Little alcoholic prsence. Medium bodied a medium carbonation. Overall, a more than decent IPA, great in the nose.

Bottle form the Beerstore (NZ). Definitely has that Belgium Yeast aroma. Pours and nice murky golden brown with no head. Awesome mix of Hops and Citrus on taste. A great beer that I can see myself drinking on a regular basis.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2010 I reckon I enjoyed this more than my 3.3 score ,but that’s the math I came too. This bitch is good ,nice and sexy, but unrelenting in one way. Hops are jaded and dirty. Nothing feels bright. Chewy rich caramel maltines ,grapefruit ,oily ,syrupy streams ,but in a fat ,sticky messy vibez, Drinkable ,but screwy.
