4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I loved this beer when I had it a couple weeks ago at Brouwer’s Cafe in Seattle. I didn’t notice a lot of Belgian styling, but for an Imperial IPA, I liked it a lot. The dimly lit environment makes me hesitant to comment on the appearance, but the aroma was beautiful and citrusy. The palate was creamy and resinous, but not overwhelmingly so. Overall, I thought this beer was dynamite stuff. I hope I get to try more from this new Washington state brewery.

On tap. Sweet candy flavours, belgian yeast. some heat but hides the ABV pretty well. Pretty good for the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty orangey color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits with some unrefined grainy notes is not as I was expecting. Taste is also dominated by fruity tropical hops notes with some unrefined grainy notes and some light residual sugar notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation with no real apparent alcohol. Not bad but something appeared to be a bit off with the malt bill.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #1051 - April 7, 2014 -On tap at the Underground, 12 oz pour, 10%. Clear golden pour with a giant head with decent retention. Gorgeous, tropical aroma billows out - pineapple, mango, passionfruit. Taste is definitely full bodied, good yeast character, and just enough spice to be pleasant and refreshing. Generously hopped but not weightily bittered. Phenomenal.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is really interesting, and reminds me a lot of a double IPA - I get some floral and citrus hoppy notes, which really make me want to drink this. Taste is sweeter than I normally like, with some floral elements and a bit of the traditional Belgian yeast coming through. Decent, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Amber color, clean, with small creamy head. The aroma is strong, fruity, with some peach, mango, oranges. Good body strength, round mouthfeel; the malt flavor is quite anonymous, moderately sweet, with a nice fruit touch and strong bitterness, ending with soft resins. Don’t expect a piney DIPA.
An American sweet interpretation of Belgian Ales with the hopping of a DIPA.
Good powerful and clean beer, but unemotional.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was a great strong ale with an intense citrus aroma. Taste is mostly sweet but has the hop flavours and bitterness of an ipa. This one took me by surprise.
