Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Awesome strange Belgian IPA-ish yet Rye Dry... Aw fuck, I can’t explain this beer! It’s excellent, much like a RyePA, yet at the same time very Belgian.

Bule (785) - California, USA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a golden color with a bit of fine head. Intense citrusy hop flavors. Unusual to put so much hops into a golden ale. The hop profile matches the style though. But it's a little overpowering. Nice fruitiness. The citrusy bitterness lingers a long time.

Draught @ Russian River, Santa Rosa, CA

Pours clear golden with a smooth white head. Aroma of ripe fruity hops, yeast, sweet estery notes, spices and lemon. Taste is smooth, hoppy and sweetish with some ripe fruitness, lemon, yeast and spices. Finish is hoppy, lemony and ripe fruity with some yeast, spices and earthy notes. Pretty untypical, but tasty.
