Can thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong belgian yeast and floral. Medium mouth, fruity hop, pine, wet biscuit, light bitterness, very good.

I really enjoy this whole series. Sucks they don’t really leave the state of Texas but we’re lucky to travel that direction fairly often. This is strongly Belgian IMO but a damn good IPA as well. I recommend any of their brews!

16 oz can crushed with my supervisor. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Strange aroma. Belgian ester aroma, a bit of diaper, maybe a bit of chemical. Not necessarily offensive, but surprising. Low carbonation. Flavor is smooth and there is a nice estery presence. The can itself is amazing.

Cloudy gold pour, quick head, decent lace. Nose is floral yeast. Bittersweet. Middle is malt and sweet orange. Finish is dry. Try this one.

Wish I were a bigger fan of this style. I mean, I do not DISlike it, but just kinda seem ta be a bit of playing too much with a good thing. So these guys have managed to make one that was more than pleasant and had enough tasty hops and style to make my Homer Simpson brain STFU so I could enjoy it and want more. That is quite an accomplishment.

superspak (6371) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2013
16 ounce can into signature pint glass; no canning date, but is a recent release. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big peach, pineapple, tangerine, lemon zest, apricot, bubblegum, light banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big peach, pineapple, tangerine, lemon zest, apricot, bubblegum, light banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, bread, and floral/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy floral bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, pineapple, tangerine, apricot, lemon zest, bubblegum, light banana, clove, floral, light honey, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of hop and fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a great hop/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a lightly slick, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian DIPA. All around great complexity and balance of malt/hop/yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Very solid IPA. Lacking a bit in the aroma section, but great bitterness with a clean finish. I’m personally not a big fan of Belgian yeasts, but this was a very drinkable beer. Would definitely drink again.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Tap at Draught House. Orange pour with a white head. The beer has a lot of Belgian yeast notes but there is also a good bit of orange and light pine, as well as a good bit of sweet biscuit malt. Not too bitter but full of flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.6
Experiment_Ale (1098) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Draft at Whip in. Pours neon light orange, very thin head. Aroma is belgium fruity, floral hops light malt. Taste is fresh fruity Belgiumness with earthy and spicy hops.
