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.

GreatDane1632 (1165) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 13, 2014
On tap at burger bar -- aroma distinctly Belgian, beautiful golden yellow worth sticky white head. Flavor of hay, Belgian yeast and sticky hops. This beer is flavorful, but easily consumed. Drinker beware.

marcus (8801) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 2, 2015
On tap at Apex. Pours cloudy golden with a foamy white head and a fruity citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a little banana ester and a bitter hoppy finish.

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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2013
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. I’m not usually a huge Belgian IPA guy, but this was really nicely balanced and well done. Good one.

Hazy orange amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is semi dry and crisp from fine carbonation. Smooth light malt base, touch of cream. Good orange hops with lesser tangerine. Touches of bitter peel, mango and spicy yeast. Finishes light and airy. Comes together well. Very drinkable.

ARH (1100) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2014
On tap, poured into a goblet. The initial aroma is grassy and citrus, which fades, and a bread crust aroma comes through. It pours a clear, pale golden with whipped, white head that retains a medium / medium-thick ring and a fluffy, fuzzy surface. It also leaves an abundant, dense, sheet lace. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter. The beer is creamy and thick with a fluffy and creamy carbonation (with some fizz to it). The full body is bready with marmalde and a spice, herb zing at finish. It’s a bit dry with bread crust, bitter grapefruit, and pine making appearances as it warms. Resin and wax tastes linger in the aftertaste.

This is very much a Belgian IPA, and their description belies the truth of the matter, a piney citrusy beer. Eh. It’s a’wight, you know what I’m saying. It’ll do in a pinch. Had it at Owen & Engine.
