Fearís counterpart, this IPA is brewed and dry-hopped with Cascade and fermented with a Belgian Golden Ale yeast and Pilsner malt. Delicious! íWe were somewhere around Barstow, near the edge of the desert... When the beer began to take hold.í

Tmoney99 (13602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2011
Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.

Haymarket loathing. On tap at haymarket... Pours a clear golden lighter hue with a thin to medium soapy white head... Lighter aroma mild citrus and a subtle Belgian yeast profile... Flavors are much of the same and light for a beer with such a high abv. Grassy and light citrus with a minor Belgian yeast bent. Light bodied but doesnít offer up much of anything else. 7/4/6/3/12

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Draft at Fizz during the CDA. This was decidedly better than the Fear, but I wasnít huge on this either. Pours a slightly hazed copper with a sticky white head. Nose is spicy Belgian esters, lightly phenolic and some citrusy hops. Not perfect but okay. On taste, there is definitely some clashing between the yeast and the hops. Firm bitterness, but overall just a bit muddled. Okay.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy gold with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had notes of citrus, light fruit a hint of floral and a sweet bread backing. Flavor had a main note of citrus with a bit of light floral and fruit notes as well as a bread backing.

draft at haymarket. pours a murky yellow with white head. nose is yeasty, hay, lemons, orange citrus, and sulfur. flavors of spicy yeast profile, earthy oranges and moldy fruit, at first i found the yeast profile to be too big and annoying but it grew on me and I dug this more than fear.

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Draft on tap at brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a well hazed nea r murky yellowish hue, some gold and orange move in and darken it up a bit, nice glow, with a small frothy bright white head that dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are a blast of fruity esters, orange and pear with some banana jump into bright citrusy lemon and grapefruit, grass, zesty yeasty spice. More gentle and subtle on the nose than itís counterpart. Touches of bread dough, pale malts, and sweeter yeast and esters. Initial is a bit dry, lighter end of medium bodied with fruity esters, some pear, oranges, citrusy hops and touches of grass and florals. Some lingering fruity esters and light yeasty qualities linger into the middle. More bread dough, soap, and fruit. Finish brings an ok dryness, some faint pine, florals, and citrus rind mixing into sweet fruits, and the bread dough comes on stronger in the finish. Bubblegum and peaches up front, moving into a stronger bitterness as it warms. Lingering dry hops, citrus, grapefruit, and peach into the finish. Not bad, it grows on me, but the yeast just doesnít do it for me (Iím just not generally a Belgian IPA fanboi). I prefer the other American counterpart, largely because Belgian yeast just isnít usually for me in stronger, zesty, spicy qualities. Still this is quite bitter (hopped hardcore) and hides itís big 8 ABV pretty well and almost leaves a tartness at times. Iím ok with this, it does indeed grow on me.
