COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We collaborated again with Corey Blodgett, the ex-Oregon brewer now in charge at Maritime Pacific in Seattle. Both of us were feeling like making a hoppy brew instead of the malt forward recipe from 2010, so we made a Belgian-style pale ale with tons of liberty and tettnanger hops. The beer is deep gold in color and has a big nose that oddly has dark berry aromatics underneath the huge hoppiness, finishing extra dry and chalky with some lasting bitterness.

Growler. Pours hazy light orange with a short white head. Floral hop and fruity aromatics. Bitter attack. Light body, good carbonation, sticky-thin texture, and a long, dry, bitter finish.

Sampled on 9/10/2011 at Beer Revolution. This Belgian Ale pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from the tap. Large sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet, with a touch of yeast, some oak and maybe a touch of funk. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Funky and yeasty. Touch of wood and some must. An interesting combination of flavors. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

joeneugs (3189) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 17, 2011
On tap at Beer Revolution. Not completely sure if this is the Mingus and Monk version since I know the one I had was barrel aged, but the description of this beer is much closer to the one I had in every other way. It pours orange with a nice white head. The nose is at first musty with some funky barrel and lighter notes of straw and orange. The flavor is citrusy lemon with straw and some dry brett. Very bitter finish.

robertjm (772) - Albany, California, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Draft at Beer Revolution - Cloudy peach gold color. Small aroma of stone fruit. Body is absolutely watery. Flavor of spices trailed with hops. If the. Often wasn’t so watery it might be OK. Not digging it.

Upright monk. On tap at upright... Pours a tad darker than little dragon and topped with a creamy once again pure white head... Slightly spiced, algea like greenness, a touch skunked... Flavors are acontinuation of the same with a non-clean hop yeasty profile with a grassy type if finish. Thin to medium bodied. Not the greatest flavors or aroma for that matter. 5/3/5/3/10

putting this here as the one i had was def not barrel-aged.

3fourths (7978) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2011
draft. hazed gold. herbal and floral yeast-forward nose: powdery and creamy with a vegetal bitter greens quality. from front to back this bitterness is in play: herbal, leafy, bitter and astringency. light body with good firmness, but the astringent uncooked greens make it easy to start, tough to finish.

Draught. Called a strong dark Belgian by the pub. Orange yellow with thick white head. Not as dark as I expected. Malty aroma and flavour. Some citrus in the finish. A pleasant beer.

Tap @ Portland Cheers To Belgian Beers Fest... Poured golden orange with a white head. Lots of carbonation and fairly hoppy with a decent bitterness. It was a tad over-hopped and the yeast was definitely over shadowed by the hop resins and bitterness.
