3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent, belgian IPA a nice style counterpoint to many of the hop monsters out there these days. One of the better of the sampler I tried. For this area though, you have to do yor homework to compete with Flying Fish in this area.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at IH Chestnut Hill - Hazy straw colored with dense white head. Big citrus pine nose. Fuller palate. Hops are cloying, malt provides good body, but not too much to diminish hop profile or being too sweet. Decent. I’d do this again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber with thin cream head. Aroma is full of american hops, floral mainly (simcoe??) and only slight clean fruit. Flavor is also dominated by the hops but with a slight touch of banana and berries from the yeast and only minimal phenols and higher alcohols. this is the best Belgian IPA I’ve had, it does well by restraining the yeast character enough to let the hops shine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent brew. Pours amber-orange with a white head, leaves decent lacing behind. Aroma of sweet citrus hops and candi yeast. Easy to drink, smooth spiced finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Earth Bread King of Iron Hill Event. Pours cloudy yellow/orange with white head. Aromas of bread/pine/coriander. Moderately bitter. Starts out well, but the flavors quickly become muted and bland by the time you reach the bottom of the glass.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The best way to describe this one is full of citrus flavor that compliments the hops in it. Very enjoyable although not quite the same as most IPAs.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
10oz draft at the new Lancaster, PA location...pours a hazy greyish amber color (kind of odd actually) with no head to speak of...aroma was of banana, mild clove and bread...flavor was rather bland in my opinion...some banana and spice with maybe a slight hint of citrus...I guess the name "Belgian IPA" intrigued me...I was hoping for more of an IPA but it was more of a Hefe...glad it only came as a 10oz.
