2012-01-19. Hazy orange body, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is interesting, relatively bitter with a different sort of hop character, sort of green and leafy hops mixes with dry alcohol and Belgian yeast character. 7+ Aroma is mild, dry alcohol, pale malt, dry hops. Average plus bodied palate. Lingering dry hops have sort of a floral grassy character that lingers long into the aftertaste. Sort of like a hoppy tripel? Pretty decent. Bottle via trade with Phirleh

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep orange pour with a bit of a white head. There is a little bit of orange peel and some spicy hop character. A little bit of soft sweetness with a touch of fruit and a little bit of soft spice. A touch of fruit and some pepper as well. Moderate bitterness but it’s okay.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, thank you again Colin and Kendra! Beautiful medium hazy yellow with a small white head. Awesome aroma - perfume, yeasty, dusty hoppy, lemon - perfect. Taste - lots of orange peel and lemon zest up front, gives way to a very fruity yet bitter linger. Very dry in finish, more fruity and full flavoured in middle. Alcohol compliments. Man, this mash up nailed it, I love a great Belgian IPA when it comes together properly and this one has done it! Just about perfection for my tastes these days, well done everyone involved.

500ml bottle. A lot going on with this one, in a good way/ Piney hops and grapefruit on the nose. Pour is a slightly hazing orange amber with ample white head. Leaves some lacing. Good carbonation. Taste is grapefruit and pine upfront, with some sweetness, yeast, coriander and other spices. Body is medium with a very dry finish. Overall, I loved it. If they ever did another, larger run I’d buy a case without hesitation. A shame it probably is a one-off, but I’m glad to have got a bottle.
