sudomorph (889) - Barrie, Ontario, - OCT 20, 2013
On tap at Indie Alehouse. Pours a slightly hazy, golden copper with a hone finger, off-white head that thins to a thick film and coats the glass with lacing. Aroma is slightly floral with notes of yeast, sugar, pine, and a touch of funk. Taste is slightly sweet but balanced with a sugary, slightly peppery, aftertaste with a hint of funk on the finish.Medium body and carbonation. Syrupy texture in the mouth but with a solid carbonation to keep the flavour moving. Overall pretty good. Sweeter but not overdone. Good job.

Tap at brewery bar. Pours clear Amber with a white head. Light aroma - a little medicinal stuff, bread and lemon. Medium body, medium to full carbonation. Bubblegum, light photo bismol, lemon, light soap, some orange... OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fruity yeast with some bitter floral hops notes is pretty enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by floral hops notes with some fruity ester and a solid dry caramel malt backbone. Body is full enough with good carbonation. Well brewed overall thought maybe a tad too much bitterness for my liking.

Aroma is subtle spice and citrus. Cloves and peaches and grapefruit follow. Delicious bitterness. Well done

Drank on tap (16½ oz) at the brewpub on October 9, 2014. Honey gold, small head. Green hops aroma, abit of peach notes. Citrus pin with yeast taste, nice dry sweet ness, good herb bitterness. This is a top notch, fun to drink Belgium India Pale Ale!

jkwood04 (4666) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 14, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a lacy, white head. Aroma of floral and lightly citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, a light spiciness, and some dough/bread. Flavor the same. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Draft - Grapefruit citrus, grass and light sweetness. Clear gold with a good white head. Grassy hops and yeast esters. Light bitterness throughout into the finish. Nice.

Karol (699) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 25, 2014
Tapped at the Indie Ale House brewpub. Aroma is sweet fruits, taste was sweet fruits, malt and caramel. Booze at 7.2% detectable but not disturbing. Overall a good beer, nothing jaw dropping, but good.

The Junction Beer Crawl continues with this beautiful pour. A great crossover of Belgian & IPA. Very dry & crisp, with a peppery yeasty twang in every sip.

Growler. Pours golden blonde with a lacy white head. Light citrus sest aromatics, some lightly dank herb notes, mild caramel malt and a little bit of barny smoky phenols. Dry with a nice bitter backbone that lingers. Medium bodied with moderate plus carbonation. Note to self: need to try more from these guys...

On tap at the brewpub. Really enjoyed this with my meal. A merger of styles, with the Belgian farmhouse funkiness with a nice bitter IPA finish. Well balanced and tasty.
