Hazy amber gold beer with a tidy pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft with fine carbonation. Smooth malt, with a little sweet caramel. Light spice and fruits - dried fruits. Finishes smooth. Not bad but I wanted a stronger hop presence.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle from GBBF 2013 drunk at home. Orange gold hazy colour with a thick beige head. Belgian yeast and American hop aroma. It’s ok as a Belgian hoppy beer. A little lacking in character, but the flavours are solid enough. I think like all the Indigo Imp beers I’ve had, they lack body especially on the finish, a lack of fullness, they dissipate into a forced carbonated bitterness. It’s ok, I am sure a lot better fresh. OK, Belgian style ale with some American hops.

Ferris (12729) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle - Perfumy fruit esters. Cloudy orange with a little head. Fruity esters and a misplaced bitterness, this is not that great.

Sample from cask at the Big Tap In on 04/20/2013. The beer is a hazy copper-amber color with a thin white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and hops. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, yeast and sweet malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

Lightly hazy orange pour, moslty white head. Aroma is a mix of herbal hops, yeast, apples juice and white bread. Flavor is sweet up front followed by a light earthy hop notes. Like a slighlty hopped golden ale. Ok.
