3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear vibrant orange, a little lacing and an aroma of hops a funky earthy orange aroma. Flavor is sweet vanilla, orange, very syrupy hops and finished warming and soapy. Very different than your average DIPA, but worth buying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden amber with a big fluffy white head that recedes to a rocky collar with little lacing.
Aroma is very sweet with tart green apples, spicy belgian yeast and definitely hints of flowers.
Taste has a more biting and astringent tartness. Earthy, grassy yeast flavors mixed with pears and the hibiscus. The whole thing had a rose wine character.
The mouthfeel is bubbly and effervescent, light bodied and dry and yeasty in the finish.
This is an interesting Belgian style beer but it doesn’t come together completely for me. Like I mentioned earlier, tastes almost like a rose wine.

On tap at the Brick Store Pub. Pours dark gold with a large beige head. The aroma is sweet citrus hops and caramel. The flavor is very bitter with an ample malt backbone. The palate is smooth and creamy, with a crisp finish. Intense hop profile, but well balanced and smooth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light amber color with a white head. Citrus hops right away on the aroma with some caramel malts, and some grapefruit. Flavor is loaded with grapefruit. Alcohol is covered up pretty well. Plenty of hop flavor but not overbearing. Nice blend but still strong with citrus.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden-amber body with a beige head. Aromas of passion fruit and dark honey. Flavors are grainy, malty, a little boozy, not overly hoppy. This bottle isn’t all that fresh, as I opened it just now. Finish is slightly bitter with some bite. Drinkable, not what I expected.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber, slightly golden appearance with a thin white head. Aroma is fresh hops and a little grassy. Flavor is hoppy, a little piney with minor grapefruit in the finish. Overall tastes like a slightly supercharged version of their 420. Really like this one, would have again if I can find it.
