JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Pale straw-coloured pour with a nice, tight white head. Very bright lemony/grapefruity nose. Quite resinous with a decent bit of dank aroma hops. Fresh and assertive bitterness along with a touch of fresh grassiness as well. Light resiny palate that leads into a bright lemon citrus flavour toward the finish. Really fresh, bright IPA – count me a fan of this one.

BMan1113VR (7868) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 23, 2009
Growler thanks to JohnC. Pours with a huge, rocky white head and great lace over a hazed golden yellow body. Aroma of bananas, spice, hops, their house Belgian yeast, citrus, vanilla and slightly bready. Taste is hoppy citrus, Belgian yeast, and graininess. Lively carbonation, dry mouthfeel.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2010
On tap at the Bruery’s 1st anniversary party 5/16/09: Pours a cloudy pale golden with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of biscuity pale Belgian malts and some fresh floral grassy and citrusy hops. Starts light bodied and refreshing with good carbonation and a mild sweetness drying out before a floral grapefruity finish. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Hand bottle thanks to bman1113vr. The smell is fruits, spices, peachy, and good. The taste is papery, fruits, spices, malts, hops, and good. The look is clear, not too much white head, and golden in color.

alexanderj (3332) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2009
On tap at The Bruery. Color of clear gold with a nice sized white head. Aroma of yeast, earth and something I liken to BO. Flavor was the same but with more banana, spice to go with the earthy and BO flavor. Flavors don’t blend to well for me; not a big fan of their hoppier beers thus far.

On tap at the Bruery. Yellow/gold with more hoppiness than usual for the bruery. Tasty.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 11, 2009
Draft at the brewery.
Medium gold pour. Hoppy belgian aroma. Flavor is similar, has a nice hoppy bite to it through all the belgian yeastiness. Pretty good.
