emusche (163) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2016
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (2320) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2016
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

DuchessOfIowa (156) - Iowa, USA - JUL 12, 2015
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.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Sample during Jungle Jimís 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.

jcr (2517) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle. Light amber body with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander, spice, orange peel, grapefruit, basement. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Sticky finish and a little hot. Tartness/bitterness lingers. Interesting combination of flavors and overall clean.

Damico (3137) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2015
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.

Dorkenstein (368) - - MAY 20, 2015
Lots of hay and esters in the aroma. Some melon and a light bubblegum too. Taste is straw, clove, a light honeydew melon, light caramel. Some booze taste on the end. Taste like a nice earthy hopped Belgium tripel.
