Bottle purchased at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Clear amber in color with a huge beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, pine, caramel, orange and slight Belgian yeast esters. Malty and caramelly flavor with subtle banana esters before a piney and earthy hop finish.

Enjoyed on tap at Bangers & Lace in Chicago, IL on a gorgeous spring Saturday. I didn’t take tasting notes while enjoying this, but I remember this as a cloudy gold with a moderate white head, with notes of coriander, spice, light fruit, and light pine. Overall enjoyable.

Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, thanks to Paulo, 27/03/14. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is juicy hops, pine resin, bitter orange, caramel malt, pineapple chunks. Taste comprises bitter orange pithdom, pine bite, sweet lickings, candied orange peel, straw, earthy hops. Medium + body, fine carbonation, light booze laced tropicana in the finale. Decent DIPA if a touch overly boozey.

A confused beer with lack of balance between the two styles. Belgian styles comes through a little more then the ipa style. Being a hop head wished it had a bigger hop nose on it.

Draft. Amber color with a whit head. Soft citrus and pine hop smells. Bitter hop that fades to malt then explodes to a killer bitterness.

CraftBeerLvr41 (82) - Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2014
A: Pours a hazy copper, dark orange in color. Nice thick head with good head retention. S: Juicy grapefruit, orange,pine, and fresh cut apple. Some cream, soapiness, and mild alcohol heat is detectable. Smells fresh and tropical. T: Upfront you get bready then some grapefruit, orange, pine, and hints of lemon. Didn’t really get anyone of that Belgian character, perfectly okay with me. M: Medium-full bodied, crisp. O: A pretty solid beer, not one that I will really crave however.

Pours a great golden color. Smells of citrus and fruit. Taste is tart, citrus, dry, hoppy. A little funky. Pretty good.

Cloudy orange pour with a single finger head. Smells sweet with citrus and decaying fruit. Full mouth. Bitter taste with a long candy like finish. Some slight funk. Dry and just a little too bitter. Some sweetness would benefit this a bit. Big time lace.
