Borresteijn (6496) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2012
On tap at Beer Temple. Hazy orange colour, white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, light Brett (?), a bit of caramel, some hops. Flavour is light sweet, ligth grain, some caramel, light yeast, light tart and hoppy bitter finish. Light bodied. I should have started with this beer instead of after the Mikkeller Tomahawk IPA...

PotjeBier (2745) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple. Orange/amber color. Off white rocky head. Aroma: resin, fresh hops (acidic even), grassy, grainy. Flavor: Grassy, medium bitter (bit acidic). Medium bodied. Nice firm bitter finish with just a hint of malt for balance. Nice beer, but not sure what is Belgian about this.

Jow (3516) - New York, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Sampled at Beer for Beasts. Pours amber and tastes of mild citrus hops, some Belgian yeasts, cloves, with mild spice. My commercial descriptions lists this as 7.1% alc which is as close as I like to get to session.

A - Pours a fairly clear copper-orange color with a nice finger of frothy white head. The head had okay retention, reducing to a nice layer with some nice lacing. S - Very nice citrus aroma with some earth hops mixed in. There is also some nice yeast spice to round off the nose. Very well balanced and very inviting. T - Starts off nice and citrusy and a touch of hop bitterness with some earthy/floral undertones. In the middle, the yeast spice really shines. The finish is full of the citrus flavors and some nice lingering bitterness. Very well balanced. M - Medium to medium-full bodied with some nice assertive carbonation. The finish is very dry and along with the carbonation, the beer feels super crisp overall. D - Very drinkable. The taste is really excellent with a lot of balance and a lot of flavor. Overall, very smooth, crisp, and refreshing.

Received in trade from sixpoint, hand bottled at the brewery, thanks for the opportunity and generosity. Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a fluffy white head that persists forever. Lace sticks to everything in sight. Smells of clove, bubblegum, spicy yeast, citrus hops. Very sweet smelling aroma, very interesting nose. Taste is malty, hints of clove, pepper, apricot, very sweet, but not cloying. Very dry finish. Medium body, sweet sticky mouthfeel, ample carbonation. Great Belgian style IPA. Id love to sample this again.

I had something on tap at Le Poisson Rouge that was called Sixpoint IPA, and Im guessing it is this. Light on the hops with a touch of ginger and orange. An easy drinking and enjoyable IPA.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Tap at Blind tiger. i think this may have been one of my favorite ipas (and overall beers) of the lineup. Good deep gold-copper with a nice white head. Aroma is clean refined phenolic yeast, light fruity ester, orange hints, good citrus hops, - mostly fresh. Flavor is citrus, some pine, orange is big, some lemon, grass, phenolic yeast, spicy, pepper. Clean with a real snappy bitter finish that was pretty powerful, yet still easy drinking. I liked this quite a bit.

Draft. Pours a golden body with a mostly white head. Light and very sessionable more citrus then per say Belgian dusty hop tones that i would expect. A mild warming, some herbal and rather bitter hop additions. Nice overall.
