Belgian yeast meets Simcoe hops. The result is somewhat conflicted but highly drinkable. On the nose I get (surprise, surprise) passion fruit and Belgian yeast which combined makes me think of toffee, don’t know why. The taste it’s more of the same with a rather dry, medium heavy bitterness finishing things of. The 9 % ABV hardly shows taste wise but it gives the beer a nice, full body.

bottle@bar: bright, hazy golden/orange colour with a decent head that leaves nice lacing behind, complex & deep taste, bold dry hops coupled with some sweetness & yeast, touch of orange & pineapple with some caramel, flowers, very balanced, the hops rather than leading to a punch in the aftertaste are continuously present, great beer

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2011
Bottled, BB 2/23/12. Poured cloudy, medium orangey-amber with a tall, dense cap of whitish head.. sticky lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up pine and deeper grapefruit over a sweet bready base.. smelled a little sugary, but it was certainly aiight. The flavor found lighter-skinned fruits and a pinch of honey at the core, with lots of fruity and other nondescript bitterness around.. warmer through the finish, with a tacky, bitter feel.. some orange and pineapple kicked in right at the end. Medium-plus bodied and very sugary on the palate.. this never really came together for me.

Amber coloured, full white head. Mostly malts in the aroma, some nuts, red fruit, mild yeast. Doesn’t impress me. Misses the flavour and bitterness of an IPA or fruity sweetness of a triple. Too bad. (At De Troubadour, 33cl bottle)

iRate. On tap at Papago. Pours a hazy orange color with an off-white head. Smells and tastes of citrus lotion, honey, strawberries, and vanilla yogurt. Wow.

Rating #507, on tap at Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen

Yellow-brown with cream-like head, and leaves lacings on the glass - a perfect appearance! Aroma is strongly marked by the magnificent hops, and most obvious with a lot of peach / nectarine. Flavor has peach, strawberry, bitter hops, alcohol, but unfortunately a bit of metallicness too. It is obvious that this is a dry hopped one. Medium thick palate, and quite smooth. A quite good beer! The alcohol is a bit too obvious, though, and the metal-taste is not one I appreciate.

11.2oz bottle into my Darkness tulip...Pours a dark honey gold with a fair amount of bright white head of about three fingers. Nice fluffy lasting retention, with lacing the streaks up the glass for inches...A light aroma for a triple ipa, but distinctly American notes for a Belgian beer. Very sweet notes on the front of pineapples and light coconut, then balanced with some nice floral hop notes and of course a touch of yeast. The alcohol is hidden very well...The taste is a slight let down as the finish and feel is very soapy and distracting to me. The taste loses most of the sweetness and is mostly just a steady hoppy bitterness, that again has a soap taste. This is a decent and drinkable ipa, if it wasn’t for the soap this wold be excellent.

Bottle. Poured hazy light copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and lively carbonation and average particles. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.
