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.

Bottle courtesy of Adam from Sloop at TAP-NY. Pours a hazed amber with a large white head. Smells of old paper and infections. Sweet old paper, old fruit. Nasty old toast. Finishes with the flavor of old angry fruits.

Nuffield (3658) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2013
Reasonably complex flavors, with the hops (classic Cascade notes) and the spicy and lightly-to-moderately yeasty fruitiness also there. Not a spectacular finish, but all around good. Bottle.

SSSteve (3724) - - MAR 26, 2013
bottle. murky dark orange under a small cream colored head. floral and earthy hops with bruised peaches and a pinch of pepper in aroma. flavor is quite complex actually. you can taste all the different ends. the pungent, citrusy west coast hop influence, the peppery spicy yeast and syrupy light fruits. an earthy, full bodied beer with a lot of flavor.

thorongil2 (1151) - , Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
(bottle) cloudy amber colour with a small tan head; aromas of fruit; honey; very bitter flavour with a long bitter finish. Definitely an IPA and not a Belgian.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle; poured a dirty amber color with a huge light khaki head. Aroma of ripe fruit, caramel, yeast, must and a bit of flowers. Flavor had some elements that I could not pick out. Havenít had a beer with this flavor profile in a bit. Flavor was a bit all over the place. Both hoppy and malty but a bit messy. A bit disappointing.

RABinCO (1143) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a bit of off white foam. Big citrusy, spicy, and slightly piney aroma. Taste is the same. Less spicy on the tongue then I would expect, but a good dose of bready yeast does settle on the tongue for the aftertaste.
