4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: lightly sweet hops/citrus and herby/original combination
Appearance: translucent and bubbly/nice white head/minimal lacing/light amber in color
Taste: sweet and bitter with a salty finish (I know, right?) I can taste the corriander in this one - it’s a real nice mixture but the aftertaste is rather odd
Palate: slick texture/medium body/higher in carbonation than usual with a bitter finish
I’d definitely buy this beer again - I like the mixture of bitter and sweet. Very drinkable when you want to go slow....I think if I drank this contuously I’d be hic-cupping after the 3rd one

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. The appearance is a cloudy gold color with a small white head. The aroma is slight citrus with some spice and bread. The taste is orange and spice with some wheat tossed in. A good beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2016 Pours an opaque amber-orange with a modest frothy white head. Really nice aroma, sweet and spices. Flavor is a bit sour then the spices come through, leaving a nice crisp finish. Pretty good...I probably wouldn’t seek this one out, but I’d drink it again.

Bottle. Hazy gold in colour wi medium carbonation. Aromas are of hoppy orange, coriander, and tropical flowers. Nice blend of hoppy and old school soap flavors, along with elements of flaked wheat and kitchen herbs. Medium bodied. A well executed hybrid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz single bottle from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Clear golden-orange appearance with a white head. The aroma is zesty, herbal, floral and spiced with a hint of fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding citrus fruits and a light peppery spice. Smooth and balanced with mild bitterness. Better than expected.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really pleasant beer. In terms of a summer seasonal it’s a different type of beer then an Oberon, which is nice. It’s a little more hoppy and bitter than the citrusy nature of Oberon. I really like this beer, and it keeps getting better.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 2/17/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness/yeast spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is an awesome Belgian IPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
