Draft at brewery. Strong perfume and citrus in the nose, some apple and pear. Taste is a wonderful compliment of fruity esters and hop citrus flavors. This blend works well and the yeast doesnít impart any harsh or undesirable phenols. Well done for a style I donít typically like.

22 oz bottle from BevMo based on recommendation from a friend. To me it could have used a bit more maltiness to balance the hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

In a trade-thanks, Roy! Slightly cloudy copper. Malty, caramel nose, donít get a lot of hops or belgian yeast notes. Malty, slightly dank IPA, but prefer this to the original based on memory. No Simtra but a solid DIPA.

Really nice Belgiany DIPA here from Knee Deep. Elements of the OG brew with a nice floral tropical hop note, hints of straw and grass, and a big sweet malt front. The Belgian yeast adds a lovely layer of complexity fruiting the beer our even further. Good stuff!

Draft. Mango and pine aroma, with a mild bitter taste with a long finish. Aroma is great didnít really pick up the Belgian yeast. I very much enjoyed this twist on the Hoptologist.

Zymurgeist2 (961) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
Has been a couple of years since the Belgian IPA craze. Combination of pine, slight citrus and yeasty bread. Clear copper with a white head. Citrus more present on the flavor. Yeast well represented. Moderate high bittering. A little in unbalanced.

Average white diminishing head. Good lacing. Hazy orange. Heavy Grapefruit pine aroma, with a little of the belgian yeast mixed in. Full thick alcoholic feel. Long lasting flavor, a little bitter. Can feel the alcohol hanging around. Nice ale for gentle spring day.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma with light yeast. Grapefruit and pine flavor with light yeast. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and pine lingers with light yeast and light malt.
