Pint. Tylers Apex. Good aroma, sweet, spicy. Clean golden orange.color, good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Lite body, smooth creamy mouthfeel, sweet spice.finish. huh aroma is much better than flavor, flavor just doesn’t have the ooomph of the aroma. Oh well.

Pours beige with a think, foamy-white head, lasts a while. Fairly present on the nose, hints of yeast and some citrus/grapefruit. Clean beginning and very smooth, not all that much flavor despite the aroma. Finishes a little bitter but doesn’t linger. Overall I’m proud to be a Long Islander ;) Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2012
Draft at Tap 42. Pale gold, small but stable head. Looks like an English summer ale. Smells chewier than expected, or at least was hoping for. Sweet whispers of orange plus coriander, but simplistic. Feels heavier and graver than it should, as the flavors are thin and inconsequential except for the sharp herbal perfume oils in the finish. I can see where they’re going, but they haven’t arrived.

Rated at Brew Bern 2012. This was definitely a lighter IPA with a bit of sweetness to it. You get some of the hoppiness coming through, but it’s an easier drink. drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2012
6/27/12. On tap in a pint glass. Barely hazy, almost clear golden pour with a small frothy khaki head. Mix of resinous hops and orange with that spuced chickeb soup witbier aspect in there as well. Slightly bready malt presence with sweet orange peel and a definite yeast presence in the flavor. There is a noticable hop presence but if this were given to me blind I’d probably guess wit/Belgian. Meh.

Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a cloudy pale orange color with a thin white head. Nice aroma from the Belgian yeast. Good hop presence in the finish. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2012
tap. deep golden with very small head. belgian elements seem a bit over the top, making this seem slightly unbalanced. not bad though. DialSquare (5031) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Can from ABC on Betton. Spicy, grain, lemon and yeast in the aroma. Tastes are bready - similar to smell but everything is light. Makes it easy drinking, but not lot going on. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
12oz can, which I’m pretty sure I got from Perfect Pour. Split with Robotopera in between wake boarding sets. Zesty, citrus taste up front. Some belgian yeast. Hard to judge color from the metal cup. Looks kind of amber,w ith a good bubbly off-white head leaving good thicker lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, lightly soft, kind of tingly lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Kind of zesty spicy light to moderate sweet taste. Light bitter. Hint of metallic. OK white IPA. scarletfire65 (1466) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2012
I was one of the first to taste this publicly last August at the Mickey Hart show at the brewery. Finally found it again at the NYC Craft Beer Festival. The nose was very yeasty with banana esters, tangerine, clove, very wheaty, medicinal. Smooth palate, hoppy and spicy finish. Feels too estery, possibly flawed, I’m undecided, but I need more than a 1 oz. taste.
