4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear bronze with a generous foamy off white head. The nose is citrusy and funky with a Belgian bright fruit ester combined with American hop dankness. The flavor is strong and malt forward with some toast and earthy caramel sweetness, with some trailing Belgian pear/apricot esters following behind with a touch of grapefruit rind. Really pleasant, complex, and quite drinkable.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Out of growler thanks to Mar. Pours hazy orange/gold with soapy beige head. Aroma has very nice tropical fruit and malt notes, floral. Flavor is much the same, dry with a light bitterness in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Overall, very solid brew!

Pours clear orange with a lasting head. Sweet malt and citrus aroma. Excellent hop bitterness without over doing it. Reminds more of an English IPA than American. Very smooth on the palate with a lingering hop finish. Very nicely done.

Poured a nice amber with little head. Soft nose and a very soft, very appreciated palate. Not a hopheads Ipa, but one I could easily stomach.

On tap at the brewery’s 1st tour.
Deep amber brew with a nice white head. Nose of spicy Belgian yeast, floral hops, and citrus (especially grapefruit) - bitterness is there but not overpowering. Lots of juicy citrus and earthy hops.

Bottle from Rosebud Butternuts. Aroma seems floral/citrus with a nutty touch. Med body or better. Flavor is spicy, citrus, malty. The flavors are fairly strong - tho this is not a NW mouth burner the hop and yeast/spice are making it bitter enough. This flavor is quite different. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really solid iPA. Not really belgian per say, but nice bitterness and a balanced flavor. Also a bit dark for a classic IPA, bit we'll let that pass. Great debut beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draught) cloudy rich orange, lasting very fine creamy head. Nose of agave, light grapefruit, cream, spicy like rye but maybe from the yeast. Taste of orange pulp, moderate spicy kick, grapefruit peel and cream. More English IPA than Belgian in my opinion. Nice palate carbonation. Mild bitter linger.

Deep amber pour with a cream head. Nose is belgian yeast, florals, super hoppy, tropical fruits. Great on the palate, super hoppy, tropical fruits, citrus, light spice, and a sweet finish.
