2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Floral, spicy hop aroma with citrus orange peel. Color is golden slightly, with a large head with good retention. Citrus, grainy flavor with strong pepper notes on the end. Hop bitterness is high and the balance is more towards the bitterness side. Mouthfeel is medium light with a high level of carbonation that tingles the mouth. Astringency is noticeable on the end. Overall, a disappointing beer from Ommegang. Aroma is pleasant, but the flavor has too much going on between the hop bitterness, the Belgian esters and the strong astringent pepper notes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Trappist Glass at 42°. Color is a hazy golden orange with good carbonation and a fluffy head. Aroma is hops, citrus and Belgian yeast. It has a medium body with a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor citrus, hop spice, a bold bitterness and just a hint of fruit. In the after taste the citrus gives an orange note before fading into a dry bitter finish. Overall it is a tasty and unique brew, very well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy gold in color. Giant head with nice lace. Aroma is the pleasant floral-hoppy notes that I find really nice. The taste is also really nice, not the strip the skin off your tongue bitterness of some DIPAs. Citrus and floral favors. Like it!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a cloudy yellow with white pillowy head. Aroma is yeast, light Hops, some citrus. Taste is spicy with the yeast showing through more than the Hops. Could have been a little hoppier with it being in the name, but overall pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy, very bubbly copper-gold with a large long-lasting fluffy white head. Lots of lacing. Pleasant yeasty and hoppy aroma, herbal as well, and finally fruity and bready. Nice flavour (7+): yeasty, floral, herbal and hoppy along with a long moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Really good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well hopped Belgian pale. Very nicely done and refreshing. A more drinkable Belgian IPA. Worth seeking out. Fresh bottle from Premier.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Marshmallow peeps, spearmint, grass nose. Hazy amber, thick lacy head. Cat piss, grass, pear, lillies. Medium body easy carbonation. Wow, how much do I love BPAs? Such bright and complimentary complexity. A harmonious marriage of fruit and floral notes, both from the hops and the yeast by products. This beer is an outstanding representation of the style and the latest iteration of Ommegang’s development of the BPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a moderately hazy gold color with a big, fluffy, white head of foam. The aroma is herbal, bubble gum, cotton candy, and dry straw. Floral and dry bitterness in the taste with a twang of sweetness hiding in the background. Medium body. High carbonation. I get a bit of a smarties candy flavor toward the finish. Sweet vanilla and candy notes hinted throughout.
