Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Sampled on draught at the Great Taste of the Midwest 2012 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy golden pale with an average sized off-white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some light tropical fruit and citrus. Flavor has more distinct Belgian yeast presence with multi-grain malt, grapefruit and some citrus rind. Finish has a mild bitterness with aftertaste of golden grain and Belgian yeast. A solid Belgian IPA.

From sampler at the source. Fruity with some spice, but the belgian yeast is not as main of a player as the fruitiness. Nice! 14.3

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Tap at Vintage. Slightly cloudy golden-orange. Thin off-white head. Not much of an aroma for a IIPA, certainly more Belgian than IPA. Sweet and fruity. OK, but sort of unimpressive. Not a bad beer per se, but very brewpubby, not even competing for World Class accolades. Sort of ugly garbage undertones, like a 40oz with a lot of hops. The off tones come out more and more as it warms. Should have been abandoned. Sub par, unimpressive.

beerbaaron (1346) - Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Cloudy dark orange amber. Medium to small off-white head, partially lasting, little lace. Fruity, citrus, topical. Belgian yeast. Moderate hoppy, fair sweetness. Some alcohol. Medium body. Enjoyable.

demmbonz (590) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Tap at the source. Beautiful hazy light copper. Long lasting pillowy head. Nice hop aroma and flavor with a little belgian spiciness from the yeast. Quality brew.

arkurzynski (1591) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On tap at source. Hazy orange with light brown hues. Aroma of rustic pine, fruity hops, and light Belgian yeast. Flavor has nice up-front catty pine hop bitterness that gives way to a nice malt character with Belgian candy, light caramel/toasted malt, and mild spice. Nice herbal-pine finish. Best of both worlds. Not too dry on the finish, with enough malt to match the bitterness. Well done.

cbfobes (2346) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 29, 2012
On tap at Vintage 9/29, pours a hazy yellowish orange with a thin head, aroma has touches of tropical fruit and citrus with a little bit of the yeast coming through, flavor has more spices on the front end with a sweet finish, I was wanting more of the ipa to show through

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2012
On tap at Vintage Brewpub pre-GMTW 2012. Murky amber with a thin off-white crown. Aroma is nice and tropical with mango, melons and citrus backed up a decent amount of caramel. Taste is fruity with melons and tangerines, caramel, fruity yeast with a semi-tart and semi-bitter finish. Nice effort, one of the better Belgian IPAs I’ve had.
