12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a clear & bright, copper color, with a nice, bubbles & cream, off white/light tan head, and spots & wavy spray as lacing. The nose started with subtle yeast, then expressive grapefruit, mango, and apricot. The taste was similar notes, with more evident sweetness that lightened but lasted, touches of dank grain, rye toast, pulp, a hint of floral soapiness, and potent, lingering hop bitterness. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, and some finishing dryness. A little flavor confusion, but not enough to negatively sway me. kaser (6364) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Clear orange color with sticky white head. Had this poured from draft at Jerry's (north) in Chicago. Fruity wheat aroma. Good hops and bitterness. Banana and fruit notes. Smooth tasty IPA kkleu357 (634) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pretty fine brew. Just got done with a PsuedoSue, so get to compare Citra hop beers. This ones good. Much sweeter from the trappist yeast. Don’t like it as much, but still a very good solid beer. chicagotjm (20) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Aroma: Nice mix of citra hops and malt. This beer smells great to me.
Appearance: Amber orange hue and hazy that looks very appealing.
Taste: Nice balance of hops and malt. You can really pick up the citrus flavors with a caramel malt backbone. Slightly lighter on body and flavor, and very drinkable.
Palate: Medium body with a nice level of carbonation. Finishes well with a moderate bitterness.
Overall a very drinkable beer and one of my favorite purchases when I stop through Wisconsin - this is one I look for. Very drinkable and nicely balanced - not overpowering on the hops and bitterness with a nice malt backbone. I like the citra hopped beers and this one is well done. jjgmd (2215) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2014

2014 bottle to an IPA glass. Pours a hazy amber color with vary little off-white head. Aroma is mango and tropical fruits with floral and grassy hops. Taste is the same sweet mango and tropical fruits with the grassy/flowery bitterness being more pronounced. A little dankness at the end. Medium, smooth mouthfeel.

Slightly hazy copper orange with an oatmeal colored head that holds a good dollop throughout the experience and has good lacing. Aroma of citrus and pineapple mixes with the sweet Belgian yeast bubble gum, presenting tropical fruit scents. Also some chives and mild spicy aromas. Taste is somewhat sweet at first with tropical fruit and citrus then has some dankness. Dries out and has some grassy and floral character as well as mild spiciness. Finishes semi dry with moderate bitterness and spice. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium full body and moderate carbonation. An interesting and different IPA. The Belgian yeast skews things in a good way, adding unique characters to every element. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours a muddy orange color with foamy tan head and big lacing. Bright piney-fruity aroma. Taste - The fruitiness is what I notice first. Peach, apple and juicy fruit gum. Hops are piney up front with some citrusy floral accents. Soft mouthfeel. Has a bit of a unique taste. I like it. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Hazed dark orangish pour with a small white head. Aroma is quite fruity, with tropical fruit hop notes and fruity belgian yeast notes. Flavor has medium bitterness with balancing belgian yeast sweetness. Fairly twangy. Nice hop presence. Medium bodied, average carbonation with a medium hoppy finish. The is one of the better belgian IPAs on the market.
