3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet candy and piney hoppiness on the nose, very inviting. Hop bomb in flavour, prickly pine hops with a slight sugary aniseed/licorice backing from the Belgian yeast. Firm but soft bitterness which works well. Good beer

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
30 apr 2016, tap. Dirty orange and a bit hazy. Nose is spicy orange rind and mildly sweet. Ned body and mildly fizzy. Orange juice, some grassy hops, mildly sweet, noticeable alcohol. Honestly, it feels a bit flat and heavy. It’s kind of on the line between a Belgian strong ale and a DIPA. Still, fairly decent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at yard house. Hazy murky orange rust color with thick foamy white head. Funky yeast nose. Sugar, yeast, funky full chewy flavor. A bit of a weird bitter sour combo, but an interesting Belgian approach to an imperial ipa.

Aroma cítrico, fuerte corona blanca y persistente. Sabor cítrico, sobre todo pomelo y resisa, para tomar con calma.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Typisch Amerikaans bier. Wrang, slap en bitter. Het moet je smaak zijn, maar voor zoveel bitterheid heeft hij weinig evolutie.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Willems. It’s an amber beer with a huge thick off white head. Fruity, soapy, floral and light herbal aroma. Good bitterness and sweetness in the flavor. Peaches and passion fruit with a great malty backbone.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Yardhouse.
Clear, orange amber body with a very good head and good lacing.
Aroma is hoppy and fruity with citrus, other but fainter tropical fruits, and caramel.
The flavor is also fruity but not hoppy by American IPA standards. Drinks like an AmericanPale Ale that’s loaded with caramel malt and made with some Belgian yeast. Not a bad thing.blends
Feel medium plus body with medium ight carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of heavy caramel malt. Hazy dark amber color, beige head cover, dots and spots of lace. Taste is strong caramel malt with dark fruit overtones that moves to a finish with enough hops to balance. Mostly this is a thick heavy brew, alcohol up front, lays hard in the stomach. It’s acceptable, but not search-worthy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy deep amber beer. Thick frothy off white head. The head gives a hit of fresh lime hops. Palate is light, soft and dry and the head makes it airy. Light soft caramel malt is a base for hops that impart lime, pine with grapefruit and orange in the background. Finishes light and frothy and with more fresh hop. A delightful DIPA.
