jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Sampled at Clockwork’s 4K/5K/10K gathering 2013. Bottle pours a golden yellow body with white lacing. Aroma is spice and grain. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with prickly carbonation and lots of spice and a very unpleasant graininess. Some bitterness in the back as well.

mansquito (3287) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery 650ml ($6): Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head and lacing. Aroma is wonderful yeast that makes me say "that’s nice yeast," gentle hoppiness and an underlying fruitiness. Taste is lightly bitter, but in a nice guy kind of way. Very lightly sweet, but the aftertaste is actually a bit sugary. Some citrus flavors break through. Herbal hops are present as well. Nice complexity. Very nice to drink. Very happy I purchased.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Dry Belgian yeast, flowery and fruity notes, light spicy notes, and a medium bitter flowery hoppy finish. Really damn drinkable and quite delicious.

AirForceHops (2979) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Draft @ Barley Pub, Dover, NH. Standard shaker shows a cloudy gold color, light head retention. Nose is grapefruit, peach and a touch of pine. The main body of the beer is grain with the aroma’s translating into the same flavors. Belgian yeast make s a brief appearance but it’s mostly dominated by the hop profile. It finishes with a dry floral bitterness. Overall Harpoon delivers exactly what is advised with this brew. If you like a Belgian beer blasted with a good amount of hops, you should think this is decent. Tasty.

Bottle that I took to James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Big bright citrus hops on the nose, light musky yeast. Medium bodied, grassy. Nice musk and dusty hop bitterness. Wonderfully easy drinking, nice change of pace.
