tap. Pours with a golden color. Aroma of spices and hops. Spiciness very dominat in the flavor profile, combined with some strong piney hops and some citrus. This is offset by yeasty backbone. A hopped Belgian style golden ale.

IrishBoy (3889) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Draft at RR; they were out of empty growlers and I forgot to bring one, so I can’t take any to Odeed; Nose is mixed Belgian spices and yeasty; clear gold with a medium, glass-lacing, offwhite head; lightly bitter with some cloves and caramel and yeast; finish lightly bitter.

FirmButtstone (48) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Growler from IowaHerkeye (thanks Joey). Clear with not much head. Nose is dry and spicy Belgian yeast tones. Very crisp and nice bitter hop finish. Nice spice note from the yeast. I really love this beer, could drink it all day. Nice mix if IPA / Belgian styles. The yeast / taste profile reminds me of IPA’s I’ve made using Chouffe yeast. Good stuff

tap at city beer. the color of apple juice. aroma is doughy and sort of grainy old tasting caramel malt and hops. flavor is pretty much the same, off grainy caramel malt and not so fresh hops... light citrus.

On tap @ RR. Pours a clear, light amber color with a small white head. Interesting mix of aromas; sweet, hoppy, alcohol, fresh pool toy. Easy drinking, nutty- sweet up front, subtle (comparitive) hop finish. Doesnt reach Hop-It status, but a nice stab at an odd style.

AgentSteve (1640) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 7, 2008
Pours a medium copper color with a lasting off white head. The nose is floral hops and estery sweet. The flavor is grassy and slight earthy hop with caramel and yeast sweetness. A touch of smokiness toward the end. Subtle coating mothfeel and dry finish.

paytoplay (146) - , California, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Cool aroma, some citrus, slight hop, and a bright fresh light golden aroma. Very drinkable, some wheat flavor. No Alc noticable. Same Speedway release growler. Got to sample a couple times. Refreshing brew ment for a hot day. Very drinkable, thanks for the sample for the beer knowledgeable guy who brought this.
