COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by our love of Belgian ales and hoppy West Coast ales. We bring Cascade and Columbus hops together with our house yeast for a smooth Belgian style hopfest. Best when fresh, this beer is not for aging. Thanks to our friend Todd Russell for help with the pilot batch.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a hazy golden orange brown colored body with a light one finger white head that appeared for less than thirty seconds. Some slight lacing appears and trickles down the sides of the chalice. It was too hazy for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell was balanced between the hops and citrus. Some caramel comes out but it is mostly faint along with the alcohol tones. The taste was dominated by the hops yet some citrus came out trying to match up to the hops. The caramel is way more subdued in the taste than how it was on the smell. The palate was about a medium on the body with a slight silkiness - possibly creamy, with a light carbonation felt. Overall, I thought it was a good beer. Well, I would have it again and hope that I would have a fresher batch.

Deep copper, murky, off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, a little spice, leathery note. Flavor: bready/nutty malt, a light sour note, some sweaty funk, hoppy notes muted.

Amazing balance. This beer has everything- superb hoppiness, fresh flavor, sweetness, and body. Does everything well. Savory bitter ipa to be enjoyed slowly.

crazyvin (1901) - New York, USA - NOV 24, 2013
An opaque amber body with a white head that had some retention and no lace. Citrus and pine hops some sweet malt notes. Some mild yeast. Flavor seemed unbalanced. The bitterness and grapefruit flavors seemed to conflict with the sweet malt which were close to sweet bread. Finish was smooth and the carbonation seemed a little higher.

Belgian IPA. Slightly hazy honey color with a uneven medium white head. Aroma is a bit odd almost a English fuggle hop with some west coast rain fresh qualities. It is more east coast, refreshing, and tasty, yet not what I would associate with a Belgian ale, even an IPA.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. My label sys Belgian IPA on it. Anyway, it is a hazy orange-tinted golden brew that has a spicy zing to its moderate hoppiness. Quite nice.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Not too bad for an IPA. Bitter but not overly bitter. Not my favorite. Fifteen characters to go.
