tectactoe (2291) - Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Gauzy, almost neon-ish yellow with a skimpy white film that barely covers the entire top of the brew. Aroma has fresh, weedy hops, mild orange rind, wet grass, a touch of florals, & I swear Iím picking up some Belgian style, spicy yeast... (I did not realize until later that this was listed as a Belgian ale, so I guess it makes sense). Taste has plentiful spicy & borderline earthy hops with more floral & grassy notes opening up mid-palate, not as citric as the nose would seem. Lightly pungent & quite bitter, lasting with a lingering sting into the aftertaste. Hops steal the show, the yeast & bready malt take a backseat in the flavor department, here. Crisp, snappy mouth feel, mostly dry finish. Decent Belgian-y style IPA.

12oz bottle shared by Pizz5116 after work (Christmas Squad beers round 2). Poured a hazy pale yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, and bready malts. Taste of white bread, citrus zest, grapefruit, and light hints of belgian yeast.

Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a fluffy white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has combines Belgian yeast, grass, a bit of earthy citrus and light grains well. Flavor starts with grass, Belgian yeast and grains but finishes with bitter citrus and pine.

OldMrCrow (1941) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine, served at about 50 degrees. At $2.99, a steal!

Pretty beer: cloudy yellow pour with a fluffly white head. Lovely aroma; dusty yeast and lemon peel hops meld very nicely into something that is super-enticing. Flavor is amply hopped, lots of white grapefruit juice with a decided belgian flavor--but none of the esters that mar so many US "Belgian ipas". Instead, this is a beer in something of the De Ranke XX vein, and a very nice one. Dry, dusty, delicious. It packs a huge amount of flavor for 5.7% and feels plenty full on the tongue. You could easily have convinced me it was 7 or 8 percent. Great beer if you are in the mood for a hop blast. Iím astounded that it isnít rated higher on here.

Julie says it was very deceiving for the first second and then it is hit for sour but then hoppy she gives it a 0.2

arkurzynski (1582) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Hazy pale amber. Nose of fruit skin, Belgian yeast, mild spice, and sweet malt. Flavor is a mix of pine and citrus rind with Belgian candy, yeast, and fruit syrup. Good carb, a bit heavier than I would like. Semi-dry lingering fruit skins and malt.

Anova167 (296) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Big foamy head that sticks around. Golden pour. Yeasty aroma with some pepper and bread. Flavor is nice with a hit of bitterness. The finish is super dry and the bitterness lingers. Well done.

aracauna (3138) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Cloudy gold. Explosive carbonation on the pour. Moderate head retention. Phenols are dominant on the nose with the hops lurking just underneath. Fairly dry.
