3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and some fruitiness, some grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is average to full, malty and sweetish, some caramel and some fruitiness, some grapefruit - citrus hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, grapefruit - piney hoppyness, light alcohol. OK sweetish Belgian IIPA - 9% dries the finish, but still too sweet/too much caramel for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Big spicy hop taste, belgian yeast, something funky. Soy sauce, sushi, or something oriental... Ginger, I think. Hazy amber color, with large chunks of sediment floating in there. Big darker chunks at the bottom of the glass. Good, thin white head, leaves good lace, and has good retention. Fish. Butterscotch, some floral, rice. Belgian yeast. Soft, brighter carbonation, medium bigger body, but less than you’d expect for this ABV. Very interesting. Tasty savory / bitterness. Really nice one to sip.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with an off-white head. Nose is sugar, caramel, and oxidized hop aromas. A decent grapefruit note, some pineapple, and lots of sweetness. There’s a decent fruitiness to the flavor, particularly pineapple, peach, and tropical notes. Very sweet with tons of sugar and caramel notes. A touch of grapefruit, minimal (if any) bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a lofty off white head. Smell is rich malt, tart fruit, some hop notes. Taste is tart fruit firstly then the malt backbone emerges. The beer has some citrus notes and a dry slightly bitter aftertaste. Body is medium and nicely carbonated. Overall I enjoyed this beer.
