Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2013
On tap at Mtn Sun. Pours a hazy copper with a finger of fine white head. Good retention and lots of thin lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, resin, slight belgian, fruity/floral undertones. Mildly hoppy bitter up front, fading to hoppy, bitter, citrus, fruity, and slightly herbal/pine. Finishes mildly bitter and lingers. Alcohol is well masked. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. Very drinkable and balanced, a good brew.

Sample on tap at Vine Street. Hoppy honey sweet golden beer, dry hopped, graham and wheat. Damn good, insanely smooth for such a high ABV.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
On tap. Pours with a really hazy, deep golden hue with a very lightly off-white head. Aromas are hoppy, herbal, citrus, grassy, melon and lightly dank. Some esters and light phenols. Flavors show a medium bitterness, fruity, estery, peppery, a bit of orange. Lively bubbles, dry, well hidden alcohol.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Draft @ Vine Street. Dark orange with lacing. Lovely floral aroma. Smells hot, but also dry and spicy. Nice resinous feel with long lingering flavors. Boozy but nice.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2011
@ Vine Street. Relatively floral aroma with some alcohol, orchard fruits....complex if nothing else. Spicy, complex, herbal and floral hops, lots of malt. Sweet but not cloying. Pretty good brew - and I don’t usually trust these Belgian IPA concoctions.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Hazy and cloudy orange yellow in color. This beer has a strong aroma of hops and florality. The palate is crisp up front with a balanced and smooth mid palate and then a nice bittered finish that lingers for just the right amount of time.

onceblind (7496) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2011
On tap at Vine St. Very hazy orangish yellow with a small white head. Pretty hoppy nose with citrus, floralness, with what smells like pilsner malts and resin. Nice big palate of subdued bitter hops, citrus, Belgo yeast twang, and a finish of pale bready malts. Nice and bitter, but not too much. Nice and hoppy, but balanced.
