brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 13, 2011
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.

hopscotch (9490) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle… Hazy orange ale with a huge, rocky, white head. Fantastic retention. The uber fruity aroma is quite simply a terrific medley of tropical and fuzzy fruits. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Outstanding balance is provided by equal amounts of fruity bitterness, sweet maltiness and fruity-bready yeastiness. Just a touch of saison yeast spiciness here. Finishes lightly fruity with lingering, gentle bitterness. Bottle courtesy of dmschefke!

Aroma of floral and slightly herbal hops, pale malts, and a spicy finish. The taste is earthy, herbal hops, caramel, pith and a tart yeasty finish. Medium bodied. Interesting.
