3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale straw with an aroma of sweet, candi sugars and American hops. Exceptionally quaffable, stone fruity and quite a surprise! Like a happy Westmalle (same yeast, apparently).

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Medium-full body; light carbonation, reasonably creamy and smooth; a touch of alcoholic warmth, but not much; the sweetness is pretty high here, but at least not a huge overt crystal malt focus; honey, sugar, a mineral cereal graininess; the bitterness isn’t especially strong, and the beer instead focuses on the tropical-fruit-driven hop flavor; again, the vanilla and bananas appear from the yeast character, ultimately adding to the apparent sweetness; overall, slightly rough and muddled presentation

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazed golden with rocky egg shell head. Aroma’s are wheat, hay, yeast, dough, peppery hops, minor lemon citrus and just a hint of funk. Taste is rich and spicy with a lingering barnyard funk. Mouthfeel is edgy and spicy up front then full-bodied on the finish. Overall solid but not game-changing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy and deep dark red. Smells ridiculously resinous and sweet, almost like a candied hop aroma. Dark bitter cherry,with a hint of chocolate , dankness and a dry woody finish. The bitterness lingers for a while. Awesome red IPA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour of gold and good white frothy head. Nice citrus nose with hints of Belgian yeast. Hops are punchy up front, but nice balance of malt with that yeast on the finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle from John’s Marketplace in Portland, OR. Aroma is citrusy, grassy, and fruity, with hints of banana, lime, and licorice. Mouthfeel and taste begins creamy and sweet, and finishes sweet, bitter and slightly tangy/sour. I liked the balance between the maltiness and hoppiness, and also how the malt and hops went a long way toward smoothing out the Belgian yeast flavor. I didn’t particularly care for the tangy finish, but this is still an excellent beer!

Poured from a 12. Has a grassy, barnyard, dankish aroma to it. Flavor is crisp, but finishes creamy. Definitely has a strong bitterness to it like the pith of an orange peel.
