3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours slightly hazy gold, nice frothy head, lingering cap and nice lacing. Aroma is rich, fruity, hint of yeast. Lots of subtlety, nuance, complexity in the flavors - all while being refreshing, not heavy. It has the earthiness of a Saison or Farmhouse ale but with more finesse, the flavor profile of a Belgian but subtle. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark golden with lasting white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet with saison funk, floral tropical fruit (banana, pineapple), hops and fresh cut grass. Flavor is same with sweet Belgian yeast in the finish, along with mild spice complexity. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, funky sweet finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a shaker glass. Light amber color with a generous white frothy head. Aroma is a strong dose of resinous hops with some spiciness from the Belgian yeast in the background. Flavor is lightly sweet and has some lighter malt notes that transition into some resinous hop notes and peppery spice towards the finish. Medium bodied and pretty smooth for the ABV. Overall this is quite good, just a little more mild mannered than I remember.

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.
