Nice little surprise at the brewery tour tasting. Pours a straw light gold with a moderate white top. Aroma is an amazing bouquet of intense citrus and floral hops, coupled with belgian yeast and a slight spice from the rye malt. Taste is awesome, big citrus but well balanced with the small spice from the rye and everything is dried out so elegantly with the belgian yeast. I wish I could bring this home and drink it everynight. Even my brother-in-law that I dragged to the brewery and drinks Molson Dry was blown away by this.

On tap at Allagash. What a beautifully made beer. The aroma is hugely hoppy with loads of citrus notes like pineapple, mango and a dash of spiced notes. The flavor is highly fruity, in a great beer-like way and citrusy. Grassy notes come out in the finish. The esters in the flavor are flawless, the most tasteful banana suggestions buried under the bold flavors of hops and grain. Belgian IPA’s are usually not so amazing, but this could be the best example of one I’ve ever had. lefossoyeur (613) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Hazy blonde with a good thick white head that leaves a great ring. Fruit salad on the nose with bubble gum esters. Light to medium body, good carbonation, fruit salad again on the palate, a bit of sweet citrus, medium bitterness, a bit of spicy hop and a pleasant lingering fruitiness and finishes on a great dryness. Did’nt felt like a 8% beer, could drink this all day! Great Belgian IPA. johnnnniee (4236) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2014
On tap at Cask and Vine with Mr Barleywine.
I started and ended the night with this, great brew. Huge citrus and fruity hop aroma with bits of bread and spicy rye adorned with hints of pepper and clove. Flavor follows the aroma. Great brew, if only the bottles weren’t so obscenely priced. Lubiere (13771) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2012

Bottle courtesy of Paul at a tasting at Andy’s the day after doing a tasting at Paul’s. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Sweet lemon and musk on the nose, dusty musk, a bit of yeast. Lemony, grain and sweet musk. Medium bodied, very light and clean. Not very spicy, but there’s a lovely amount of citrus throughout this. Long earthy musk, toasty and yeasty. Very nice, super drinkable, very refreshing. rejtable (2622) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
