On draft at Andys. Orange, amber in color with a nice white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Hoppy fruity aroma. Orange, grapefruit, Candi sugar notes. Malty and nice hoppy flavor. Caramel and earthy hoppy notes. Medium bodied. Dry hoppy finish. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours a transparent, copper, orange amber with a frothy, slightly creamy, slightly off white head. Aroma is very well mixed, citrus fruits, candy sugar, bread, yeast, lemons, lightly sweet malt, a touch of earth. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, grapefruits, a little pine, liquid sugar, crackers, lemon rind, candy. Finish is full bodied with lasting sweetness and a lasting bitterness. Honestly, I don’t love the style, but I felt this was a very good marriage of Belgian beers and IPAs.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from archers. Pours a clear golden amber color with a medium creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with notes of citrus, peach, mango and an herbal, peppery bite. Taste is very bitter hops with a very dry peppery herbal thing along with lemon and a bit of other citrus.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper toned body with a white head. Aroma of grass, pine oils, a light sap not quite maple and earth y citrus and more pine. Grass y floral a light green hoppiness but not to hinder the light citrus Belgian fruit tones. This strikes an odd balance due to the earth herbal hop tones, some pine, citrus and honey sweetness. Really nice.

This IPA was decent. Had a strong hoppy nose which fell a little short on taste. Slight citus start and a mild finish. Nice on a hot summer day.

A Mes rate. Bottle at the Rake.
Sometimes what I put into the RB search field without noticing makes me chuckle once I’ve hit enter. Considering I’ve just done a search for "Fly Bitch" this was definitely one of those. Yeah homeboy, bring on the fly bitches. Ahem… Fantastic clean amber body with a good white head that lasts well and leaves some decent lacing. Bloody brilliant NZ type hoppy snout. Some amonia, lots of tropical fruit and pleasantly fierce. The flavour is more ofthe same. Grassy and resinous, plus a good hit of chewy malt. Excellent bitterness. Great dryness. Good lingering juicy fruits. Damn good stuff all round.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a clear, bubbly orange-copper with a small frothy off-white head. Aroma: Oh wow, I really like that! Yeasty yeah, but quite hoppy too, along with sweet caramel malt, a hint of spices, bubblegum and some citrus and tropical fruit. Flavour’s also yeasty and hoppy (herbal and perfumey), along with caramel malt, some spices, fruit and a dry, average bitter finish. A surprising amount of hops in this beer and that makes me happy. Alcohol’s totally hidden to me. Medium bodied. This is one of the better Belgian-style IPAs I’ve had, I really enjoyed it.
