Tap at SO taproom. Soft orange pour, fluffy white head and lacing. Big, beautiful hop nose: citrus, candied grapefruit and orange, light caramel, touch of Belgian yeast influence. Full mouthfeel, touch of tropical fruit. Could be a little drier, but a winner overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a copper orange with a smooth white head on top. Aroma of belgian esters, banana, clove, floral hop notes and citrus peel. Flavor is bitter with mild sweet belgian yeast and citrus fruit notes. Some tropical fruit, some citrus peel. Overall, a pleasant amount of bitterness. This is medium bodied with a slick texture, lively carbonation. Finishes long and bitter.

Had on draft @ the Haymarket in Illinois .. . big sweet yeastiness .. subtle hops and honey .. . pretty nice, different .. . . nobody puts in as much effort at anything as a smoker does trying to light a cigarette on a windy day..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed golden, slightly orange tinted body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has lots of Belgian yeast and pines. Banana esters, clove phenols, grapefruits, florals, and a lightly sweetened, somewhat bready malt backing. Flavor is similar. Bitter pines, florals, and Belgian yeast throughout. Some clove, banana, grapefruit, tangerine, a touch of vanilla, and a lightly sweetened, somewhat bready malt backing. A bit of a melon note towards the end before this finishes dry, fairly bitter, fruity, and somewhat estery before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a softer, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Iím not usually a huge Belgian IPA guy, but this was really nicely balanced and well done. Good one.
