Hoppy fruity, nutty, Belgian yeasty aroma. Golden in color. The aromas carry through into the taste...the fruit is pronounced, manderin orange with a spiced finish. Fantastically complex. Notes: GABF ’09

Bottle. Hazy orange in color, off-white head. Citrus fruityness and grassy notes mixed with Belgian yeast in aroma. Later on also some bready malts and notes of mango appears. Quite well carbonated. Lots of bitter notes in taste at first with some orange marmalade and doughy notes later on. Sweeter notes with a Belgian twist, and has got a quite dry finish. Tasty.

Fritz123 (1315) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from Hoppin frog Brewery. Pours a clear golden amber with little to no head. No lacing. Very nice tones of pine, pine resin, citrus and sweet sugars. The taste was similar with the pine and citrus notes. Didn’t get a lot of Belgian except it was slightly sweeter. Crisp, slightly bitter finish. Medium light body, low carb. Great DIPA.
