2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Deep gold color and a thick white head. Aroma of clove, pear, banana and some citrus. Belgian yeast noticeable. I can smell the cloying sweetness before I taste it. Yep. Pretty damn sweet. Flavor has notes of mango and bad rum cake. The sweetness is clashing with the hop profile. Not too sure what was intended here. Overall a bit difficult to drink. Props for trying a Belgian IPA but I think the balance needs some work.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 750 ml bottle shared from State Line, 2/9/15
Aroma: Heavily Belgian nose, some spice, clove, banana, candied sugar, and some dark fruit
Appearance: A slightly cloudy orange pour with a small off-white head and some sticky lacing
Flavor: Tastes along the same lines, heavy spice, sweetness, finishes a little bitter and more spice
Palate: The body is fairly full, sticky mouthfeel, average-to-lively carbonation, and a long duration
This one leans much closer to the Belgian yeast side than it does to the IPA. Heavy and sticky. If you promise in the label that you "hopped the (expletive deleted) out of it," I need more hops than this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Brouwer’s - turbid orange - nose of juicy, citrusy american hops, place some tropical esters - low carbonation - sweet and intensely.tropical in flavor - noticeable alcohol, but fairly subdued for something so.strong - light phenolics late that play off the hops pretty well - good for something so.strong.

750 ml bottle split. Pours a cloudy orange color with a foamy head. Incredible sour citrus tangerine aroma that had me hooked right away. Grapefruit and citrus forward flavor with a nice belgian yeast background. Really nice balance of sour citrus and spices. What an amazing beer. Very well done. Loved it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1082 - April 7, 2014 -Bottle from CBI - 12% Clear golden pour with a giant head with decent retention. Lots of grapefruity citrus aromas erupt out of this gorgeous brew.Taste is definitely full bodied, good yeast character, and just enough spice to be pleasant and refreshing. Generously hopped but not weightily bittered. Phenomenal.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I found this beer very quaffable. This triple IPA has a very nice golden amber coloring with a white head. The aroma is sweet, without being cloying, with a strong floral smell. The flavor is more on the malty side, and even though there is a high alcohol content, it is barely detectable. This beer finishes dry and leaves you wanting more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Holy booze and hops. Pours a dark orange and gold with a beige finger of head. The nose has alot of caramel and toffee with big hop and citrus notes as well as Belgian esters and citrusy zest notes. The middle has mild toffee, caramel and acidic hop notes throughout. The finish is boozy and has a lingering acidic hop note that clashes with the alcohol. Not incredibly well balanced and the hops far outweigh the malts. Nice spiced notes and yeasty esters work well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to tulip
Flowers, grapefruit, resin, pine, grass, and a hint of nutmeg. Red tinged amber with a thin creamy, but mottled off white head. Lots of funky hops and bitterness right off the bat, which is then slammed with some caramelly sweetness that doesn’t quite balance with the hops. But that soon fades, leaving a lasting bitterness that grows with each sip. There’s also a vein of sourness at the end. Yes, this isn’t traditional, and it is interesting, but interesting doesn’t mean good.
