A -Pours a clear golden body with a generous 2 finger white head that retains well. Nice sticky lacing patterns.
S - Grassy earthy grain, musty clove, lemon, sweet floral.
T - Candy sweet malt with a good amount of clove and pepper. Grassy, lemon citrus, honey, with floral hops adding earthy bitterness. The yeast provides a subtle funk. Finishes with a peppery bite.

A good American version. Would have liked more character from the yeast. Good spice and hop profile.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Retired ? Found a bottle at mari’s. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head that quickly dissipates. The aroma has orange peel and a little booze. Reminds me of a barley wine. The taste is rough .. A citrus sweetness and an off bitterness. Considering it’s retired its probably just past its prime.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In typical GD fashion, this was a pretty much "to expectations" beer with a nice citrus hopy taste lightly obscured by Belgian yeast spiciness. Good effort, sad it is apparently gone long after my drinking and reviewing.

[Sample thanks to Arve_Christian at L’Europe (Madrid)]. Cloudy golden colour with an excesive carbonic. White head, perfect lasting, foamy and nice lacework. Aroma has citrus notes, yeast and cinnamon. Flavour is alcoholic, slightly citrus and lime hints with a decent duration on palate. Carbonation and body is medium.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A-- Poured yellow, like the label. Small head, cloud white in color and it had good head retention and left no lacing.
S-- Slightly sweet with a touch of malt. Slight bit of sugar and bread, Not a big smell, very faint.
T-- A little more hop forward in the taste. Still get the bread and sugar smell but the hops are there off the bat. Not a big but it is there. Also get a little bit of citrus in this. Nice surprise.
M-- Different but good. Like how it is hops at first then the Belgian style comes out.A little different to get hops, then bread and sugar, followed by dryness and citrus.
D-- Decent Belgian IPA. nothing more

355 mL bottle at York Tap into a fluted glass. Cloudy orange colour with a bubbly, foamy head. Verry hoppy, light, dry, citrus, lime and orange, spiced. A tasty beer. A cross between IPA and witbier in taste. Hoppy and wheaty aroma.
