COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copious amounts of piney, citrusy American hops make a light malt sweetness their bitch in this full-flavored Belgian IPA. Aggressive bitterness, massive hop flavor and super fruity Belgian yeast.

5000 (6650) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle:   A musty Belgian IPA.   Not real barnish or funky.   Reminds me of old Apricots for some reason.   Not all that hoppy.   Has a stale sweetness to it.   A little bit tea leaves.   Odd, but also some stale fortune cookie like sweetness.   One of those fortune cookies that has been in the cupboard too long.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Leave it to Beaver like finish.   Too old, not bright enough for my tastes.   Not musty or barnish, and certainly not very hoppy.   Tiz okay, but too mild overall.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2015
Tap at Solemn Oath. Unfilered orange-copper body. Thin white head. Sweet yeasty notes in the aroma. Pretty much one of the better Belgian IPAs I’ve had recently/ Full bodied but drinkable. Serious hop depth, from dry to fruity. Pretty straightforward despite the above average hop additions. Soapy, biting yeast.

Draft at barrelhouse flats in Chicago. Orange pour with fluffy white head. Pine and musty aroma. Floral and citrus flavors. Perfect hop bitter and fruity balance. My wheelhouse IPA

Pours deep gold into a tulip. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Yeast and bubblegum aromas. Soft with sweet caramel and yeast upfront turning to mild grapefruit in the lasting finish.

Nose is a candi sugar covered hop cone. Light pine but mostly citrus. Light white wine character. Taste is initially sweet then shows off some more orange marmalade and sherbet character. A tad sweet for my taste but still very good. Could dry out more in the finish.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
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.

tmoreau (3715) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2015
On tap at Pinstripes Bistro, Bowling, & Bocce in Oakbrook, IL. dispensed to a tulip displaying a clear & bright golden color, with good persistence to the fluffy, cream toned head foam, and also to the wavy, curtainy lacing. The nose was expressive grapefruit, some tropical scent, lightly dank, with a bit of resin. The taste was like notes, plus a pronounced & very lingering, citrusy, earthy, and rind-like bitterness, with some malty creaminess to the mouthfeel, and decent effervescence that both advanced the body past medium. A solid Belgian IPA.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2012
On tap at bangers SO invasion... Pours a mostly transparent brown cidery consistency and topped with a thin quickly reducing soapy white head... Belgian yeasty nose with mild citrus notes and tangerine presence. Adequate but that yeast seems to exist in a lot if these offerings... Flavors are more of the same but with an added earthy semi-bitter melon presence that adds an additional layer of complexity. Belgian yeast seems to be less abundant and those fruity notes amplified more which is nice. Medium bodied with semi-lively carbonation. Kind of enjoyed this one moreso from a flavor perspective.
