3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. Hazy yellow orange pour with a lasting white head. Lots of citrus and orange blossom notes in the nose. Spice and citrus on the palate, almost reminding me of a Wit with orange and lemon slices it in. Lingering citrus and floral bitterness. Light to medium body. A nice effort.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-17-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy golden orange color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave tons of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is massive of a yeasty and grassy smell, giving it a very Belgian like aroma. Mixed with the yeast and grass, are lots of spice smells of coriander and clove along with some more hay like and orange citrus smells. Some other light aromas of a musty smell are there as well, but these actually are quite nice with the grass, hay, and yeast, and end up producing a rather crisp Belgian white smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter fruit flavor of a citrus nature mixed with lots of yeasty and spice tastes of coriander, and clove. Some grassy and grapefruit hop flavors are present from the start adding a nice bite of hop to the taste. As the taste advances, the sweeter citrus (which is largely of a tangerine nature) begins to fade with some other flavors of a more grainy and hay flavor replacing them. A light lemongrass flavor also comes to the tongue during this time and is accompanied by some flavors of herbal hop nature, mixing with the flavors that are left to produce a rather crisp, yeasty, and nicely spiced hop flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average, to maybe just thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are great for creating a crisp feel, which matches the blend of moderate hop, citrus, and yeasty spice, producing a rather refreshing feel overall.
Overall – A rather refreshing and crisp Belgian IPA. This will be a nice summer style brew to sip at a BBQ.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy beer with a full head, which caused me to spit out the foam. Very carbonated! Definitely taste the tangerine fruitiness of this beer. It has a sharpness that I wasn’t expecting. Not a really drinkable beer for more than 2, but not as wheaty as I would have liked.

Hazy yellow with a big head. Aroma floral, some hops, spice, some soap. Taste fairly bitter, with bitterness appearing more in palate, wheat, coriander, spice. This tastes like someone took a decent IPA and ruined it with coriander.

12oz bottle poured with a swirl into a tulip glass.
Turbiid deep yellow with a big white head and lively bubbles that lift up some sediment.
Nose is full with fruits - citrus and apricot with a yogurt twist. Some floral notes and faint spice.
Juicy fruity hop flavors, some wheat, not very bitter, citrus zest.
Light-med body, quite dry, effervescent and fun.
