Oh ya, this stuff is good. Nice light golden color with a beautiful white head. Perfect balance of sweet and hops with a nice creamy mouthfeel. This is one of my favorites. Doesn’t do to well in a growler though, I’ve tried about 30 times and it never lasts more than 12 hours. Doesn’t really matter though it’s gone so fast.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at sharp edge. Appearance is a somewhat hazy orange with a beige head. Aroma is hops and malts. Taste is predominantly hops but balances well with the Maltese. A bit bready. Nice finish. I like this one a good bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ Sharp Edge Creekhouse. This one poured a hazy, golden color. It had a HUGE white head: the bartender had some problems getting it to pour. She poured a couple of glasses to let the head settle and combined them to get me one glass. The head did leave lots of lacing. The aroma was a bit milder than I would have expected, even after warming a bit. Wheat, slight spice, floral and faint fruits to the nose. The taste is slightly tart, and a touch dry. Bready, wheat, background fruits and spice. Interesting and good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have had this several times on-tap at sharp edge but never found it on BA. This is actually a Belgian IPA much like Piraat.
A-typical for a strong Belgian pale on-tap. mildly cloudy straw yellow body with a creamy white head. Head fades to a thick collar and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.
S- floral hops, phenolic esters, and a mild fruitiness.
T- flavor is much like the smell. Quite alcoholic with a nice hoppy (mostly floral) flavor and some sweet bready yeast. A mild fruitiness lies in the background. Finish is pretty dry
P- low to medium carbonation and light body. Alcohol definitely detectable and overall impression is light and dry.
O- this is a good beer but it is very boozy. I usually order this because its cheaper than everything else Belgian sharp edge has on tap. really a great beer to experience if you want a good Belgian IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Sharp Edge Beer Emporium in Pittsburgh. Pours a cloudy, orange colored body with an inch thick, very creamy and dense, white head that takes forever to dissipate and leaves loads of lacing. Gorgeous. Aroma is floral and malty with a pleasant, banana Belgian yeastiness, and a good amount of citrusy hops. Some coriander and pepper along with some fruity esters and a bit of candy bread. Flavor is soft and sweet with a good amount of spicy hops. Fairly sweet malts up front with a hint of bread. Lots of banana and Belgian yeast come in with a smooth coriander, pepper spice before plenty of dry hoppiness comes in. Some grass with a moderate bitterness and fairly sweet in the finish as this completely dries and leaves a lengthy aftertaste. Medium to full body and creamy with a very light feeling carbonation. Overall, a pretty cool beer. Lots of hops in a Belgian ale with a solid malty sweetness. Not a lot of carbonation and an almost full body add to the sweetness, but help balance the bitterness nicely. I like this a lot. Not bad at all and cool to have as this place’s house beer.

Bottle. Poured maize with an off-white head. Aroma had a bit of everything, malts (grain), hops (citrus and floral) and yeast and a bit of an underlying spice, perhaps cinnamon. Flavor began subdued with sweet hops and ended with a bitter citrus finish.
