Great beer! Well done Belgian IPA. Aroma is sweet, full of hops, but banana too. Flavor is balanced. Well hidden alcohol.

Draft at OBriens. Translucent orange hue, no sustaining head. Nose is big fruits, wood tones, malt, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet fruits with alcohol heat initially, transitions to a bready malt and citrus hop combo with spices and a hefty woody profile, slight traces of Bret funk and wine oak, finishes sweet and fruity. Medium-full body, thick texture, medium carbonation. A wonderfully complex IIPA complemented by hints of funk and oak, alcohol presence is a bit tough though.

On tap at OBrien’s next to Little Freak. I like Little Freak a little better, but both are excellent. Yellow orange color. Mild sourness. Orange peel hop bitterness. Easy to drink. Low carbonation. Excellent.

Pours a moderately flat golden orange. Nose was nice, mostly belgian yeast, hints of hoppiness. Taste was superb, nice moderate sweet base, big belgian yeast flavors, not a lot of fruity esters, mostly earhtiness, good hop bitterness, fruity and earthy hop flavor, mixed with moderate sweetness.

On tap at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of wine notes, along with brett, and a touch of candied sugar. Flavour is complex, with brett, candied sugar, and wine barrel notes. All flavours work beautifully in harmony. This is delicious stuff.

From tap at the Linkery. Aroma is dense brett and woody. Look is strange muddy orange with no head. Aroma is stunning orange, hops fruity and wood. Dense orange flavoured and wooden dry, tart too. Dense and dry finish yet smooth and wooden. Looks terrible but aroma/flavour is fantastic.

Its nice to finally have this, since I keep missing it for some reason. Tap at O’briens. Pours golden orange with a nice tan head. Nose is big on the citrus and wood. Taste is really pretty great, touch of funk, but overall a nice belgian imperial ipa.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Draught at Blind Tiger. Cloudy gold amber with very lacy white head. Super lacy. Aroma of light basement funk, barn/hay, light toasted grains. Taste is brett funky going medium bitter in finish. Medium carbonation, good liveliness on tongue. Hides booze very well, dangerous.
