3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a light golden orange color with solid beige foam. The aroma has lots of hops resin and tropical fruit (mango,guava, passion fruit) along with a mild Belgian yeast presence in the background. The flavor starts out tart and bitter with a mix of lemon, ruby red grapefruit, orange rind and pineapple notes in addition to some clove, coriander and honey. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with soft carbonation and a bitter, alcohol warming finish. This could easily have been a bitter, boozy mess but instead turns out to be a rather tasty Belgian style DIPA.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
6 oz sample on tap at taphouse in Seattle. Aroma has some floral character with some underlying sweetness and a little spiciness. Somewhat bland. Transparent copper body with a small, off white head. Starts sticky, sweet, with plenty of banana yeast esters. Becomes a little boozy and spicy in the middle. Finishes cloying and boozy. Not so great.

Tap @ Brouwer’s. Hazy amber/orange with a white head and nice lacing. Aroma of spicy/earth yeast, citrus, sugar and alcohol. Flavor is sweet sugary malt, spicy esters, apricot and light alcohol heat. Medium body with a soft mouth feel. Nice beer, hides the 10% abv fairly well.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Delicious stuff. Bold malt flavors (honey, grains, fermenting bread dough) complement some bold hop flavors (grassy, hay-like, earthy and spicy), yet it does it with finesse (balanced, clean, well made). It also has some pleasant notes of white wine and a variety of fruits. Moderate acidity and alcohol warmth. Hop bitterness is bolder than your traditional Belgian, but I like how they "bent" that rule. Full of flavor and a real pleasure to drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap. Opaque orange color with an off white head. The nose shows floral hop aromatics. Full bodied with an oily texture and hints of sweet citrus. The hops on the finish are intense and this drinks more like a West Coast DIPA than anything Belgian.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear light copper with a good creamy off-white head. Aroma is floral and fruity. A little nose burn - spice? Med body +. Flavor is peppery/spicy. Heat is not an issue, but the drink is warming. Flavor turns up something suggesting tropical fruit. Finish is quite hoppy in a non-citrus non-pine way. Not at all harsh. Quite smooth in fact. And always fruity. Quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a clear gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a good amount of sweet tropical fruit with a backing citrus hop with a hint of thick resin and sweet grain. Flavor begins light with tropical fruits and citrus but becomes a bit heavier with some resin and a syrupy sweet grain note.
