True Belgian IPA. I guess I donít understand why this isnít rated higher? Do the IPA geeks realize this isnít meant to be a 100IBU monster? I like the fact that RiNo sticks to traditional styles and doesnít 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 youíre a Belgian style fan then this is a must try.

2 my favorite beer styles (Belgian Ale and IPA) combined into one!! Lemony, grapefruity, spicy ester aroma. Taste is bitter, citric mixed with slight sweet bready flavors. Great beer, Nothing else like it in colorado!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I poured bottle into a wide tulip glass to admire this cloudy burnt orange beer with a off white head. Big grapefruit citrus and white pepper spice aromas. Big blast of hop bitterness up front yielding nicely to belgian spice esters and semi sweet malt finish. Big IPAís and Belgian-Style ales are two of my favorite styles, which I get to enjoy at the same time in this awesome brew!

I thought this beer was really nice. Had a very clean finish. Not overly hoppy at the end. Nice cloudy color. Very distinct Belgian yeast aroma. One of my new favorites.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a medium meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is some fruit, funky earthy yeast, and some light metallic hops.
The flavor is sweet sugary bready malts with some tropical fruits and earthy yeast and a good sized bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a pretty good Belgian IPA. Not my favorite style but this has decent balance of funk, fruit and bitterness.
