3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours heavily hazed golden amber with a large white head. Bubble gum aroma combines with citrus hops. In the flavor, strong bitter citrus and pine hops are up front, backed up by wheat and a little bit of the bubble gum. Flavors are a bit discordant, but blend a bit better later in the glass. Seems like some tweaks could make it a really good beer.

On tap at JP in Ann Arbor. Pours a nice hazy orange-Amber with small head. Holds true in being a Belgian IPA, however not the best I’ve had of this style. Good stuff, but I probably won’t get it again. Cheers!

Sampled from a Growler at the 2010 March Metro Detroit Tasting. Poured a cloudy gold with a medium gray head that quickly dissipated. Aroma had pine notes with a bit of sweet fruit underlying and as well as a bit of funk. Flavor was similar with mainly pine and the fruit coming out towards the finish.

Had this on tap at the Cafe in Ann Arbor. Poured an orange color with a nice white head. Aroma was of floral hops, a bit of wheat and some earthy bitterness. Taste is much the same, hops are juicy but add some herbal bitterness at the end. Nice and refreshing, the wheat seems to smooth it out a bit. I’d like to try this one again.
