cloudy amber color; floral hop aroma; a good deal of bitter, piney, citrusy hop flavor with a medium bodied malt base and a touch of fruity Belgian yeast; nice, bitter, hoppy finish; a very enjoyable beer

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A lot hoppier of a BPA than I was expecting. Great blend of hops with a nice dry finish. As you let it sit some clove spice, slight pilsner flavor, and a little pine comes through. Different, but good for dry hop fans.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aroma is dry and hoppy. Flavor is way hopper than I thought it would be. The Belgian yeast and spicy dry hops don’t really compliment each other very well. Tolerable, but not what I was expecting at all.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm via Jay. Poured hazy light copper color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate yeast and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

750ml bottle, thanks to Jay A.! Shared with alexsdad06 and tmoney99. Hazy orange amber color. Thin bubbly off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Get that classic musty belgian malt flavor (that I’m not super crazy about). But also some good earthy citrusy and tropical hop to it, too. Pretty solid, tasty belgian pale ale overall. Good bigger hop on it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Draft at Lickinghole Creek, 5/3/14
Aroma: The aroma has a nice mix of Belgian yeast and pine/resin hops, tropical notes too
Appearance: It pours an unclear orange-red color with a thick beige head and good lace
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, yeast/spice pairs well with the plus hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a clean, easy drinking feel, and a clean, dry finish
I’ll resist the urge to comment on the ridiculousness of the name. Anyway, I thought this was a very nice beer. Probably my favorite thing I tried on our trip there (waaaaayyyyy out in Goochland). Style-wise, it’s nearest to a Belgian-style Pale Ale or IPA, even if that isn’t exactly where they classified it.
