A: The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a large white head. S: Very lemony with plenty of yeast to go along with it. A nice combination of citrus peels and a light floral hop note. It’s fairly bready with some other sweet malt notes such as a touch of cracker. A light spice, perhaps some apples. T: A bit more bread than on the aroma with some yeast and maybe toffee. There is a lot of citrus character, particularly lemon, with a mild grass note. Not much bitterness, but a lot of sweet fruity esters. M: A bit on the light side in body with a medium carbonation. O: Kind of funky for a Belgian IPA, but a lot going on and some nice flavors.

arminjewell (7824) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Pours hazy dark orange with big fluffy white head, very carbonated. Aroma has notes of nice pine, grass, resin, some nice fruity esters, spice, slight barnyard funk. Taste is nice and carbed but still smooth on the palate, with notes of pine and grass, slight fruity pear, lots of spice and funky notes, finishing very dry and pretty bitter. Tasty!

Sour all the way, but no sharp sour notes. Smell is hoppy and musty. Color is hazy orange, thick foamy tan head. Bitter taste with a sour finish. Rather short dry finish as well. Nice mix of the sour and pale style.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2011
I like the copper-ish color of this one, and the head is quite nice. Floral, peach skin (plus tropical sweetness) and slightly tannic aromas - the aroma is fresh, clean and sharp. Head lingers, well-carbonated. Lively palate. The flavor is pretty intense; there is a sharp bitterness and a huge tartness, seemingly quite dry. This is a funky beer, with lots of tropical character and hoppiness. Malt is there in the form of a light bready sweetness, but it doesn’t shine and isn’t balanced. Ssss’OK though.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Appearance is amber with champagne-like effervescence and good retention. Aroma is spicy Belgian yeast, citrus, caramel, and dough. Taste is dominated by very spicy yeast wit hside notes of caramel, tartness, funk, and citrus on the finish. Body is medium, frothy, thin, finishes bitter. Overall, a decent farmhouse but a bit unbalanced; dominated by spice and hop bitterness, too many strong flavor vying for supremacy.

PapaSkeetSkeet (995) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Light colored, well-carbonated. The yeast character in this is lovely, with more funk and berries than spice. Unfortunately the hop character is merely ok, slightly bitter, and not very smooth at that . It is well brewed and at it’s best is a light grassy/berry summer treat, but it just doesn’t go where the american hops can. I never new American hops could pair well with a Belgian yeast, though, until I tried Iron Hill Belgian IPA, Stone’s Cali-Belgique doesn’t do it for me either.

Orange-amber pour with with a tan head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Taste is a little sticky. It has a little dry aftertaste, little floral, a so-so beer/
