Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is yeasty breads, hops and some spiced gum. Flavor is what the bottle says... a Belgian / West Coast IPA hybrid, just couldn’t get into it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark yellow, slightly reddish beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma is interesting, strong sweet fruits and some tropical notes, overally the fruitness is turning to almost fruit candies, mandarin, spices. Taste has fruits, mandarin, grapefruits, spices, some caramel malts and quite strong hoppyness dries the end. Almost full bodied, refreshning carbonation. Intresting beer, the complex fruits are results from hops and yeast, then mixed with spices and bitterness. Very good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Weird combo, hoppy but with the fruitiness of a Belgian, but it works. High alcohol taste, as it should be at 9ish%.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Howells & Hood, had a unique smell as I recall, comes off bitter and strong, but once the palate adjusts there is some IPA goodness, a nice eye opener. Strong is what something called The Freak should be and it is.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer pours a hazy golden yellow color with a thick soapy white head that had great retention and left a good amount of lacing around the glass. The aroma is floral, citrus, some Belgian yeast, and grapefruit. The taste is rather unique because it really does taste like a mixture between an ipa and a Belgian. I pick up pine, hop resin, some citrus, some breadiness, and quite a bit of bitterness. The alcohol is hidden quite well. The mouthfeel is on the medium side and the drinkability is quite high.
