ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 9, 2012
On tap at Brew Pub. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange color with two fingers of white foamy head. Aromas of spices, hops, fresh picked citrus and some florals along with some underlying earthy tones. Taste of bread, yeast, and toasted grains, with more restrained hop flavors. Citrus hops come up in the finish contributing a grapefruit bitterness in the finish along with some tangy yeast. Ample carbonation and lighter bodied.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Sample from beerfest. Poured a yellow color with a nicer two finger off white head. Aroma was citrus notes, with bread, some lemon zest, and banana notes. Flavor was very malty, grass, lemon and citrus. Medium body light carbonation. Easier drinking beer, but still very good.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - Pours clear yellow with a white head. The aroma has lots of citrus and grapefruit hoppiness and a mild amount of malt with a cleanness that isn’t in most Belgian IPAs. It has a medium / light body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the clean hoppiness of the aroma with some fruitiness and tropical hops. It has a nice balancing malt presence and Belgian yeast. The finish is quite refreshing. Well done.

phaleslu (6616) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. The aroma delivers fresh, clean hop character- citra fruitiness- with bready malts, mild spice, and an overall light Belgian yeast character in the nose. Flavor of bready malts, citrus and tropical fruits, straw, wheat, and dry grains. Medium-bodied, with a clean mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Nice Belgian IPA.

Rev strange bird. Growler thanks to dan and the neiweems... Pours a clean mostly transparent medium orange brown hue and topped with a thin to medium soapy white head... Nice fresh clean citra and tropical fruit aroma. Juicy and pleasant... Flavors are somewhat lacking compared to the aroma. Not so much of a Belgian yeast profile. Flavors fall a bit short and crisp, lightly dry. Ok but really enjoyed the aroma more so than the flavor. 8/4/7/3/14

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is solid with lots of bright, citrus pines and tropical fruits with a nice Belgian yeast note that accompanies the hops well rather than taking the forefront. A light spiciness, some resins, and a grainy pale malt backing. Flavor is lighter with grainy pale malts, spicy yeast, and some grapefruit pines up front before the Belgian yeast comes in a bit more with a few tropical florals. A light pepper towards the end as this finishes dry and spicy, but somewhat fruity with a subtle Belgian yeast note, a light earth and pine, and a lightly sweetened grainy pale malt. Light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light, clean, easy drinking body with a somewhat crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent BPA. Really nice aroma and an enjoyable flavor. I like how the Belgian yeast doesn’t dominate. Finishes a bit quick, but not bad.

Has a really nice citrus hop scent and pours a nice golden color with a lacing head. Taste has a nice bitterness, I think get an off after taste from the Belgian mix. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

madvike (2761) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2012
On tap at the brewpub - Light amber with a thin white head. Nose is juicy citrus with a bit of garlic, light peppery note. Taste is much the same, with more onion coming through. Reminds me of Bedlam.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of citrus, spices, and a little bit of sweet Belgian yeast. Refreshing beer.
