Tap at the brewpub. Hazy light golden orange pour with a sticky white head. Citrusy, yeasty, light fruit. Very tasty - cool concept.

Absolutely splendid. Combines the best attributes of both styles. Think an exceptional IPA with Belgian yeast. This is that.

Stunning and wonderful. Solid triple, perhaps a little more sweet and less carbonated than the standard. But done perfectly well. The barrel aging adds a complexity. This is a very very good beer.

On tap at Cottonwood. Pours a cloudy orange with large thick frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong yeast, floral, citrus. Medium mouth with strong citrus, light hop, sugary malt, very good.

Very thick, rich head, almost like it had nitrogen rather than carbonation. The head settles slowly, leaving a dense dome in the center of the glass. Chunky but spotty lace on the glass. Cloudy liquid with a dirty gold color.
Complex aromas of creamy (lactose?) pale malts. Some Belgian yeast nose. Peppery hop, too.
Starts with a rich barley flavor. Holding the liquid in my mouth, a subtle carbonation shows up preventing the beer from getting coy. Just prior to the swallow, the alcohol is notable, oily and warming. The swallow and aftertaste is all hop and alcohol. The hop portion is bittering without any strong spiciness. In a word: Complex.

spiciness, tropical fruit, and an intense citrus bitterness that will leave you begging for more! Hopped with Warrior, Chinook, Centential, and Cascade hops.

Wow... This is an impressive brewery. Another winner. Pours a clear golden. Dank hop aromas, a touch of bubblegum too. Nice sweet Belgian characteristics with a hop finish. Awesome stuff.

Tap at AQ Bevolution 2nd Anniversary event at Yellow Ape Craft, as "Nebraska Hop God IPA". Strong fruity nose, condensed sourish peaches and yeast. Hazy medium amber/orange color with a thick 3-cm head. Medium sweet, Belgian yeast, strong bittering, heavy does of stone fruits, unripe apricots. Thin body, with a pop gun of sour/bitterness in mouthfeel.

On tap at the AQ event at yellow ape. An opaque deep gold pour with a foamy filmy white head that lingers. The nose is a bit boozy, a bit bretty, bready kind of like a sweet thin cake. Medium to full bodied with a slightly sharp carbonation. The taste is yeasty hop goodness with a good dose of boozy burn. The hops give you earthy tropical fruits - very interesting but a bit too much heat for me. Ah I forgot it was a Belgian yeast beer that explains the Brett like character I detected!
