Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a ring of foam and decent lacing. Aroma is an interesting mix of citrus, mango, belgian yeast, touch of funk. Flavor is about the same, light sweet, medium bitter, yeasty. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. In my opinion this one is too far on the "Belgian" side. The hop presence is limited to a single note "bitter" rather than the citrus/floral medli that you get from the regular hoptologist.

27 sept 2013, bottle. Light gold, clear, occasional bubbles. Nose is golden syrup, pine hops, some sweet yeast. Med body and mildly fizzy. Grassy hops, cereal malt, mild bitter finish. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle in San Diego. This is a big beer. The Belgian yeast flavors are muted, which is great for me, and the rest is all sorts of pine, citrus, herbs. Sticky oily. A bit too sweet but excellent job for a 9% DIPA.

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 doesn’t impart any harsh or undesirable phenols. Well done for a style I don’t typically like.

Zymurgeist2 (1104) - 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.

Piney, little bit of caramel sweetness and a nice citrus body. Hops are very prevalent and hang around long after the finish
