Bottle bought at Whole Foods Market - P Street (Washington DC) in October 2011.
Amber with a medium, quite creamy head. The aroma was ok with lemon, some yeast, hops and perfume. The taste was not as good, the beer felt a bit old. Still drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Dexters. Nice hoppy aroma, some caramel, some sugary yeast notes. Filtered dull orange tan. Big, steady off white head. Somewhat watery, not so bold. Lemon-lime dulled hop bitterness, pleasant aftertaste. Mild earthy soapiness. Not so impressive. While it is slightly crisp and refreshing, sort of fails at capturing the style. Like and APA met a really simpe Bierre de Garde. Seawater, subdued.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Gusher! Poured/Caught from a bottle into a snifter. Appearance is a hazy copper with an off white head of foam. Okay head retention. Aroma is faint fruitiness and a light floral hop profile. Taste is super strange. Its kind of grassy and astringent. Once you get past the astringency, a sweet tart taste comes through. I don’t think I can make it through the rest of my glass. Not pleasant. Overall a bad experience.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy copper coloured amber tinted body with a perfect, two centimetre tall slightly-off white head. Aroma of fresh hops, a touch of black and white pepper, pungent yeast, corn, curacao and a bit of lemons - nice indeed. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Deep resiny and grassy hop flavour at first with a great mildly spicey middle and a good yeast and herbal finish, showing a variety of complex flavours ranging from IPA to Saison then finishing with a Wit - very nice. Aftertaste shows more hops than anything else, but some alcohol is noticeable, a few spice kicks from the pepper and a lot of yeast is still present. Overall, a great beer and a belgian-styled IPA if I’ve ever had one. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-July-2011 and sampled at home in Washington on 30-January-2012 as the 100th rater for this fine beer from a finer state - Michigan.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted in October 2011 from a bomber bottle shared at a tasting. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that leaves thin, even lace. The nose is fruity peach and apricot with some floral hops and earthy, spicy yeast. The flavor is re focused on the bitter hops and spicy yeast with the fruity flavors underlying. The body is light with very lively carbonation and a long bitter and pitted fruit finish.
