3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Haymarket. Pours slightly cloudy dark golden with thin head. Aroma is light roasted malt and plenty of Belgian candi sugar. Taste is thin sugary sweet malt with heavy rye notes. Hops are plentiful - floral, citrusy, and bitter. Very well balanced to the sweeter malt. A bit of an odd beer... but delicious and refreshing nonetheless. Deserving of the accolades.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a pale straw gold with an orange hue and no head. Notes of grass, herbs, sweet malts, and pepper, along with some orange citrus and sweet bread. The Belgian character definitely takes a backseat to the Amarillo character. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a spicy, sweet mouthfeel. Good IPA.
