3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can pours clear amber gold with off white head of foam leaving behind spotty lacing. The aroma offers up an odd mix of spicy to resiny sap like hop notes, biscuit malts and slivers of citrus hard candy. The taste seems to be at odds with itself as malt sweetness, biscuit malts and a bit of roasted malts are trying to blend into resiny bitter hops, spicy hops and some cherry flavored hard candy. It just isn’t coming together all that well. With all the amazing hoppy brews about town this one is a disappointment.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub - San Diego. Pours hazy gold with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma has spicy pine, jammy citrus, some dry orange rind. Medium sweet flavor with bready pale malts, bitter and spicy pine, ripe citrus, hints of marmalade, dried flowers. Medium to full bodied with fine, chewy carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, somewhat resinous, more pine, florals and rindy citrus. Pretty drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Monkey Paw: Poured in a Chimay Trappist glass as a dark golden honey with a tiny layer of film head on top. The aroma is moderate with a decent scent of citrus hops. The flavor is intensely bitter with citrus and tangy spicy hops that carry this impy IPA through. Good beer.

Tap at Monkey Paw. Clear golden pour. Good white lacing. Nose is sticky, some noble rot grape, vanilla oil. Interesting- different. Taste is clean, juicy, tangy. Wicked bitter hop body. Holy monkey.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Hoppy Loft, Brussels.
Orangée-cuivrée, col blanc-beige.
Arôme est houblonné, fruité, épices, note de pamplemousse avec des effluves d’amertume plus prononcées.
Palais est aussi houblonné, fruité en amertume, pointe tropicale, palais est râpeux et épicé, réchauffant avec des notes de pamplemousse.Ce côté épicé reste persistant et s’accompagne d’une fin de bouche oscillant sur un raisin blanc. Qcq chose qui n’accroche pas pour moi.

Thx! To Antoine. Sampler draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Amber with a creamy white head – enjoyable lacing. Nose is sweet malt, yoghurt (light), sweet sugar, caramel malt, light fating grapefruit hops,… Taste is sweet malt, light caramel, touch yoghurt, sweet sugar, herbs, light yeast, very light grapefruit,… Touch fuller body. Indeed somewhat infected but not heavily. Drinkable.

It’s dark in here in Small Bar in central San Diego, so appearance appraisal may not be entirely accurate. Seems a hazed golden orange with a short antique white head. The bouquet is comprised of grapefruit and soured milk (but not in a bad way, if you can imagine). The mouthfeel is a little thin. There are some interesting esters in the flavor making it unique. Grapefruit, perhaps something a little greener too. A grape? Not my favorite.
