Bottle - Smells like a Belgian Ale, yeasty sweet but no alcohol or hops. Hazy orange with a thick long lasting head. Sweet, orange peel, hop bitterness, and a bit of alchohol at the end. Much better Belgian IPAís out there, hops impart bitterness but little flavor.

Pours a very cloudy amber/orange colour with a fair amount of sediment and a nice big soapy white head with decent amount of lace. Aroma is spicy Belgian yeast, floral, lightly fruity and a bit earthy. Flavour is spicy Belgian yeast, grassy, earthy, a slight sweet maltiness, milder bitterness and a dry finish.

Pours a hazy orangish copper with a big thick frothy head but a ton od sediment. Aroma of citrus, belgian yeast, sweet orange tic tacs, malts and oranges. Taste is a bitter orange, nice balance of spicy yeasty belgian characteristics, malts. A bit complex with a nice smooth bitterness, very enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
In short: A very yeasty IPA with a harsh spiciness. Meh
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed relatively fresh less than 2 months after first rating
The look: Cloudy rusty body, lots of particles, medium beige head with good retention, lots of lacings on the glass
In long: Nose has plenty of phenolic and fruity yeast esters and citrusy hops (mostly oranges) with a strong spicy character. Taste is doughy chewy malts in a yeast soup. The strong yeast presence create some kind of doughy-powdery sensation like. In mouth the harsh spiciness of the hops dominate its citrusy character. The beer spicy character (and it seems both yeast and hop related) is a bit too much and includes white-pepper, cloves, coriander, orange peels, moreÖ Rather harsh. I drank the full bomber because this style of beer is easy to drink, but objectively speaking this is a flawed beer. And here we go again, another few hours I wasted today entering a bunch of beer ratings, I need to take a break from ratebeer, Iím not going to, Iím just saying I need to.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange brown color with a dense, tall and creamy off-white head. Aroma has a strong Belgian yeasty spice to the nose, full of clove and just a touch of citrus hops to the nose. Flavor has a strong clove flavor early, some mild fruitiness in the middle and a very light orange and grapefruit citrus at the finish. Carbonation is very fine with a high rate of dispersion. Body is modest with a slight dryness to the brew. Overall itís a good brew but the combination of clove and spice flavor imparted by the yeast make it a bit hard to find the hops. Clove is a tad bit too strong in my opinion but still an enjoyable beer.

650mL bottle to stange glass
Smells of Belgian yeast, banana, and a little spice. It pours a cloudy amber with an decent off white head. The taste is bready and bitter but I don't get much else. The bitterness is overpowering and ruins any subtle notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out somewhat cloudy marmalade/light amber hue. Tall creamy off-white head that settles to a dense cap and leaves intricate trails of lattice-like lacing in its wake.
Toasty bread and spicy yeast on the nose, dry leafy hops with intermittent spikes of bright citrus hops.
Leafy hops, bready malt and a yeasty twang start out the flavour, spicy phenols in the middle, while things finish on a grapefruit citrus hop note.

Citrusy hop aroma, not crazy bitter but itís definitely there. Well balanced with sweet malts. A nice Belgian style IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Beer Revolution. Orangey gold in colour with medium carbonation. Hop forward aromas of orange, pineapple, and herbs, along with a faint tropical note. A bit of malt and pine sap in the mouth, but the citrus hops and tropical yeast notes are still strong here too. Firm bitterness. I thought it would be more "Belgian" than this, but it;s still quite drinkable as is.
