4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber into IPA glass. Pours a nice juicy orange with a tight, compact two-finger head. Nose of juicy estery flowers, play doh, bit of pine resin, banana taffy, clove, orange and grapefruit. The yeast also gives it a spicy, herbal, almost rosemary/thyme note. Flavor begins a bit effervescent and brightly bitter, quite resinous pine and floral perfume comes forth, ripe grapefruit juice and pith, nice and non-intrusive yeast presence that gives a slight claylike earthiness as well as a spicy herbal aspect. Not a fan of Belgian IPAs, but this is nice and complex in a lot of lovely ways.

Pours orange with a two-finger ivory head and nice, sticky lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, piney hops, some standard Dubbel-style peppery spiciness, and hints of grapefruit, citrus, and stone fruit. Taste is floral with some piney bitterness, decent, not great.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha shared with bananabi11. Orangey copper pour with an off-white head leaving some lacing. Aroma has big fruity citrus with tangy spices. Taste is of sweet fruits, pineapple, a strong tangy spice component from the yeast. The blend is well done, led by the yeast, and the body is medium. Moderately carbonated with a touch of an alcohol presence. Finishes tangy sweet and bone dry. Very nice effort for a belgian IPA. 14.1

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber. Deep amber orange hue with a pillowy head that takes some time to settle. Nice lacing as I drink. Fruity and bubblegum in the nose with an aromatic citrus aroma. Banana, caramel, citrus and pine are some of the many layers in the taste. Assertive bitterness to take on the sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample during Jungle Jim’s International Beerfest. Hazy darker golden, kind of orange color. Thin white kind of bubbly head. Bits of lace. Orange citrus, spice, toasty malt, belgian yeast. Bigger bitter taste, kind of spicy. Light to moderate sweet. Pleasant citrusy hop. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish. Solid, interesting pale ale to try. But the spicy bite sorta slows it up.

Pours unclear bright but deep orange with a faded white grayish head. The aroma brings citrus and orange with some amber malt like yeast. Flavor brings some citrus sweet orange laying nicely on the palate with the Brkgian yeast hitting the backend to tame the hops.
