3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle received from my buddy joetheyounger a year ago. Pours a clear-ish golden amber hue with two fingers of white foam. Aroma of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) as well as more temperate fruit (pear, lemon, and other citrus), sweet malts, floral hop notes, some Belgian yeast, some booze, and hints of spice (saison-style as well as spicy hops). Flavor of sweet malts, light caramel, and some sticky hop notes (citrus and spice). Unfortunately, there is noticeable alcohol in the flavor which is distracting and a little surprising since this is not too high an ABV level. Semi-dry and lightly sweet finish. Not a bad Belgian strong but the alcohol take away somewhat. (305, 486)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light yellow/golden in appearance with a large foamy white head. The aroma is fairly tame for a imperial ipa with notes of floral hops, yeasty spice, and some slight sweetness. Flavor is spicy and hoppy with a thick somewhat awkward texture with huge carbonation. Tiny bit of light fruits and sweetness but mostly overpowered by the hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a nice light golden color with a several-finger head and a good amount of lacing on the way down. The nose isn’t terribly overwhelming, bringing some light citrus and floral hops. A bit of spice as well.
The taste consists of light floral and citrus hops. In addition, I get a bit of spice and light pear notes underneath. The mouthfeel is light to medium with a nice spicing to it. Drinks quite well overall and is fairly unique.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with an abundant white head. Smells of pears and green olives, which travels through in the taste as well. There is a spicy fruity finish with a light bitterness. Overall, a very drinkable, and worthy beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a yellow-golden color with a large foamy white head that lingered and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry with crisp floral hops and light notes of must and perfume. The flavor was dry, tart, sour, lemony and peppery with a light musty undertone. The finish was medium length and dry with a bit of fruity hops. Medium body. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle served in a tulip. Pours hazy yellow-orange in color with and xl white head. Good retention, decent lacing. Aroma of lemon citrus hops, belgian yeast, spice, and pepper. Light sweet, dry-bitter-funky flavor. Very Belgo IPA. Medium-light body, fizzy carbonation, sticky texture, and long, hot, hoppy, dry, yeast-funk finish. Would like to taste side-by-side with Duvel and Orval... and a couple of American Belgo IPAs.
