Called Minx, pours an Orange amber with a white head into a tulip glass. Nice aroma with an interesting flavor starts off sweet with Malts and notes of fruit then finishes with a hoppy bite. I was told I was drinking from the last keg in existance at 101 bottles of beer on the wall in Kent Ohio

Draft sample at CBW AKA Minx. Poured cloudy copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex yeast and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tropical bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

Tap @ BBF:NOTF. Nose is caramel, solid hop character, not much in the way of yeast. Kind of like a middle of the road barleywine. Flavor follows with noticeable alcohol & honey sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper with an off-white head that has nice lacing rings. The aroma has fruity earthy Belgian yeast and toasted malt along with mild woody and piny hops. Medium / full body with gentle moderate carbonation. The flavor starts quite sweet and malty with heavy nectar fruitiness from the yeast and spicy / piny hops. The finish dries out a bit and is hoppier, but still on the sweet side. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Madisonís as Minx - Pours reddish-amber with very little head. Limp hops on the nose with lots of sweetness, honey, and a bit of alcohol sharpness on the nose as it warms. Taste is sweet, bready malt, lightly fruity yeast. Really sweet and syrupy with an almost nutty finish. Smooth, slick and viscous. I think this one is a bit old.

While this hits the mark it falls just short of the world class category. Whether it is the way that the hops interact with the Belgian yeast or something else it slips a little bit. Regardless it is a fine Belgian double IPA and on any other night would make a good selection.
Aroma / Appearance - The thin white head faded into the amber bronze body. Sparkling with life the nose is a typical rosy Belgian with a hop presence somewhere on that fine line between IPA and Imperial IPA. Semi-tropical it distracted nicely from the pouring rain out the window.
Flavor / Palate - Flowers and dried rose petals cling to the throat. Belgian yeast is wild and untamed. Solid with no huge flaws the only thing it lacks is the ability to capture the imagination. Perhaps the bar was set too high by Lolita. Hopefully this makes more appearances in the future so more people can try it and judge for themselves.
