tap at Dash In - Pours amber orange with a small off-white head. It has a surprisingly mild aroma. I’m just getting a little citrus. The flavor features moderately bitter hops, citrus, and yeast spice. It’s medium bodied and has a bitter finish. Fairly good but as I love imperial IPAs I expected more.

Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. Nice citrus aroma, yeast. Taste really well balanced, might even be my second favorite belgian IPA after Stone’s.

Very impressive beer. Very drinkable DIPA with some belgian sweetness and complexity. Extremely bitter, piney, and refreshing. Yeast gives some sweetness but does not make things heavy for fruity. Good stuff.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2012
On tap as Minx at Frisco Grille: poirs a clear deep copper bronze with a thin ring of white head. Has a sweet biscuity caramel malty nose with some light fruity esters and a healthy amount of grapefruity hops. Starts with rich lightly syrupy sweetness and toasted caramel maltiness with a good amount of resiny hop bitterness and some yeasty esters. Finishes slightly drier and bittersweet, pretty true to style.

Draft to stemmed Goose Island glass. Looks good; a semi-transparent brownish-orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes solid; hippy and malty with a Belgian yeast presence. Abv is hidden nicely. Average on the palate. Good beer.

They called it Minx. 2012 Flour City Brewers’ Fest. Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet with citrus hops, caramel malts, yeast. Flavor has more citrus hops then the aroma had. The finish is sweet with the yeast and fruits. Slight warming at the end.

Quevillon (2501) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
Drank on tap (12 oz) at The Merry Monk (Albany, NY) on September 17, 2012. On the menu, the name was Minx. Coppery golden, little head. Fruity malt aroma, spicy. Sour citrus malty taste, notes of dried hops, slightly bitter. A beautiful fruity creation!

On tap at Frisco Grill and Taproom. Clear, dark orange amber with creamy khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, yeast and caramel. Taste of caramel, passion fruit, citrus and yeast. Medium body and medium carbonation with a soft, foamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
