Pours out a nice gold color with a sizable white fluffy head. Aroma is grassy with some citrus and slight yeast notes. Sweet spice ans some earthy pepper notes are also hiding in the background of the nose. Taste is very smooth and well balanced. Citrus hops, spice, fruit and peppery notes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Purchased at Holiday wine cellar. After my local liquor store sold out of this stuff almost over night, I had no choice but to drive all the way out to Escondido to get my hands on a bottle. The nose will create a big aroma of quality hops upon opening of the bottle, and will become even more apparent once some of it is poured into the glass. The appearance is a firm gold tint with a lot of sediment and dust clouds throughout the entire liquid. Creates some thick foam topping at first, but will retreat to a small layer of film across the glass. Now to the most important part of how I will judge this beer, the flavor. It has a strong chewy profile of very distinct hops that I don’t believe my taste buds have come across before. The hops are of a fresh green pine and light citrus nature, and are displayed as the main leading role of this ale. I might believe this was India pale ale instead of any Belgian ale because of what a punch it gives.

Bottle: The aroma consists of a creamy yeastiness with some florat notes and light orange. It pours a slightly haszy orange with a moderate white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of yeastiness along with some light citrus and apple notes. These flavors are quickly dominated by a big floral and earthy hopped finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capone’s. The pour is hazy deep golden with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of initial barnyardy funk, some dusty yeast esters, hopcitrus, apricot, and sweaty feet., The taste is pale malty, hoppy, with notes of orange zest, funky yeast, barnyard, and peach. The finish is on the dry end, with a great complexity. I’ll be side-by-siding this with Damnation in the near future.
