Gription79 (2236) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. The Belgian yeast dominates this beer. Spicy, yeasty, pine, tangerine notes in the aroma. The malts are soft and let the Belgian yeast and American hops shine. This its a pleasant beer.

BoulderOnTap (8) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2013 does not count
Been seeing this around Boulder a lot more often lately. It pours a good-looking, light orange and a light and fluffy head rests on top. The hops are strong on this one; grassy in the nose with a slight citrus aroma and flip-flopping in the flavor to citrus (mostly orange) with the grass lingering in the background. Light in body, with a slight tickling carbonation, this is a bitter, hoppy, yeasty treat.

Thing white lacing and golden in color. First smell is boozy. Tastes amazing... fruity, grassy, crisp hoppy and bitter. Nice change from the everyday IPAs in the market! Definitely worth trying this beer!

True Belgian IPA. I guess I don’t understand why this isn’t rated higher? Do the IPA geeks realize this isn’t meant to be a 100IBU monster? I like the fact that RiNo sticks to traditional styles and doesn’t get caught up in the hype of "Americanizing" all of their beers. I do love America though

By far my favorite beer from this brewery. Nice orange tint with a strong fruit nose. Good carbonation and full bodied. If you’re a Belgian style fan then this is a must try.
