Draft at carlsbad PP. Clear gold, with orange hue and a small creamy white head. Aroma of fruit, banana, flowers, slight hops. Flavor is similar, but sweeter, banana, light yeast, bubble gum, and lightly hop. After trying, it really should be entered as a Belgian ale, not IPA.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Pours an orangey gold, slightly hazy with a sticky white head. The nose is strongly Belgian, very estery, with come floral hops. Also some lemony notes as well. Quite fresh and bright, very nice. On taste, has a very soft Belgian palate with candi coming through. Not an IPA at all. Pretty one dimensional hoppy Belgian beer. Not really my bag.

swoopjones (5676) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2011
draft at Pizza Ports tap takeover at Haymarkets, Chicago. Surprised that this was an IPA. I thought it was a Blegian Ale or even a saison. Herbal, spiced, citrus zest, lots of Belgian yeastiness, coriander, flavor is similar to Sofie. Didnt seem 8.2 like it stated. Little bitterness. only beer i asked for 2 4oz. Good but an IPA??

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Pizza Port Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice well hazed golden glowing hue, a frothy whitish head dies to an ok film and laces ok. Aromas are distinct Belgian yeast, big fruity apples and pear. Touches of lemons, bread dough, big fruit. Touches of yeast. Big sour lemon cookie influence and decent hops. Initial a big fruit punch, tutti-fruti with lemons, pears, bananas, and bready dough. Bigger yeast spice, vanilla, honey. Finish moves to a dry yeastiness and a lot of lingering sweet estery fruits, honey, sweet bread, with just a pinch of bitterness. Very Belgian, very fruity overall. Sweet on the palate with a touch of grassy dryness.

Served on tap at Port OB. The appearance is a nice gold hue with some reddish undertones. The flavors and aromas are sweet bread notes, crisp lemon influenced hops, and some light baking spices at times. The mouth is a touch thick from the yeast with the lemon notes making it a touch crisper. A solid Belgium IPA.
