3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a clear light golden color with a small white head. There is a pretty good hop smell with this beer, but there is also some maltyness to the aroma. This beer is an odd combination of a relatively strong IPA with a big dose of a belgian ale. However, there is also a pretty good hit of bitter fresh cut grass. To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about the flavor of this beer. I like both of the dominant flavors, but I’m not sure putting them together does much for either of them.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2010 (22 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours a clear golden color with a big fat off white head. Has great head retention and great thick lace. Aroma is hoppy with a belgian yeast componet. Taste consists of hops, which are mostly a grapefruit citrus, and belgian yeast which is fruity. There is also a caramel malt side to this beer also. Calm carbonation and medium to thick body. This beer balances the hops, the belgian yeast and the caramel maltiness perfectly. Very intresting for any hop head.

From bomber. Really nice fragrant nose to this. Fruity hops, apricot and some grapefruit, light bubblegum esters and some Beeman’s. Yeasty aromas with light sweet malt and neutral fruit. But mainly really nice hop quality - Belgian IPA. Golden amber clear with light haze, topped with a white foamy head that has a bit of lacing. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation and light warming. Starts sweet with lots of malt and Belgian yeast flavors. Fruity, with orange and apricot flavors of the hops. Bitterness, quite strong, comes in at the finish, leaving a fruity-chalky after on the tongue. A really nice IPA that is not over-the-top as much as other Stone hop-bombs, but tempered with more sweetness and Belgian character. Really nice.

Bottle sampling thanks to texasjeep. Yellow hazy color. Nose is citrusy with a distinct Belgian yeast aroma. Taste is lemony, alcohol is upfront, nice smooth hop profile. Did I say yeasty? Body is fluffy and light. This would make a great summer beer. Overall very nice.

Thanks to Texasjeep for this beer. Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with no real head. Yeast nose with nice piney hop aromas. Tangerine and orange notes as well. Flavors are nice, clean hops and citrus, with a refreshing finish. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Krugels in Wilkes Barre, PA. I’m a fan of wild yeast and the leathery musty funk is definitely prevalent but it came with a strong sweet malt presence. Shades of tangerines, citrus, mahogany and a bitter bite follow. I’m reminded of victory wild devil but this one has more of a perfume-like presence which might turn off some. Nice fruity aroma with caramel esters blowing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a decent head and lacing. Aromas of spicy malt. Medium nectar with ample residual effers. Basically this beer is competing for the Hopsenjoor/Houblon slot but it doesn’t compete. I like the Green Flash Le Freak better than this. Cali is mild in comparison yet does yield a sword of hop bittering that never lets up. It doesn’t allow the malt flavors to reach into the palate walls rendering this a bit unbalanced. Theres a defined Belgian Tripel disposition yet mild and forgetful. My haunch is that this needs to age for a year. that will allow the malt side of the spectrum to show better as the hops fade away. Only time will tell. I personally don’t like to wait for a beer to get better, especially when theres only a bottle left and no more coming.

Draft at Deep Ellum. Slightly hazy straw, fine sticky head. Aroma is IPA with a hint of something else behind the hops. Fruit, with a touch of leather and must. Tastes like IPA at first, hops up front with spruce and flowers, as that fades a pleasant belgian blend of banana and earth. Really nice. Have a bottle at home I’m looking forward to as well.
