650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that has good duration and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some spices and floral hop notes. Taste is a spicy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness with a bit of yeast in the finish. Alcohol is hidden very well. Medium to heavy body with tons of carbonation. A truly fine example of a strong Belgian ale.

KyotoLefty (7874) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 14, 2012
Draught at Kamikaze. Bright, glowing gold-orange with lace. Big grassy hops in the nose, citrus, light bread, sweet orange. Tasty. Lightly sweet at first but a dry finish, grassy, citrus zest, some pineapple, peaches; nice balance. Light but persistent Belgian fizzyness. Great stuff.

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Aroma is tropical fruity and malty sweet. You have to give it a good swirl though, as the carbonation is low. Taste is surprisingly smooth for the 10% abv, with a smooth bitterness throughout and notes of tropical hoppiness, caramel maltiness, warming alcohol and that characteristic barleywine like flavor from a huge OG. The finish is smooth and leaves you with a lingering bitterness.

swoopjones (6966) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottle. Golden orange pour with a wisp of a white head. Mentholyptic aroma, Belgian yeastiness, lavender and pot pourri. Flavor follows aroma up pretty much to a t. Enjoyable beer.

Sampled at GABF 2012. Wow. Top three beers for my two sessions at GABF. Sprightly with spice and hops intermingling. Just really worked on multiple levels. Complex but not bogged down. A Belgian IPA to me.

Sampled on 10/11/2012 at GABF. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, a touch citrusy and tropical. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, yeasty and estery. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. A touch of tropical and citrusy hops. Interesting mix of malts, hops and yeast. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
