DrSilverworm (8547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2015
22oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Very cloudy orange color. Thin ring of bubbly white head. Wow, very interesting potent assertive flavor. Lots of citrus, biscuity caramel, spicy character, belgian-type yeast. Apricot-like character on the back end. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet, mild heat on the end. Bigger body, kind of slick. Light carbonation, but it’s not so bothersome... Pretty easy-sipping overall. A bright, assertive, interesting beer. Seeing the tea notes alexsdad06 mentioned.

marcus (7554) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 16, 2013
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room, Sacramento. Pours amber with a clinging off-white head and a citrus and banana aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. There is an extra layer of yeast influence, as this is the standard Hoptologist recipe with the addition of Belgian yeast.

slowrunner77 (7091) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
"Not really getting a whole lot of Belgian anything in this. The only noticeable difference is a drier body that actually takes away just a tiny bit from the regular Hoptologist. Very good, but no reason for this in their lineup."
