Purchased at Bottles & Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after work, hopefully on one of the last sub-zero days of this winter. Appearance is a lightly cloudy amber gold with a moderate white head that lightly laces to the glass. Aroma of peppermint, light citrus and light tart and clove. Taste finishes with a nice dry bitterness, light tart, light piney hops, nicely done. There’s nothing outstanding about this brew, but it’s really good, solid, and exceptional. Probably the best "session" Belgo-IPA I’ve had yet. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2011 Light crisp sweet, malty, too. This is light and easy to drink. Flavor contains Caramel, sweet, cloudy and and not too bitter. Nephilium (1821) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Citrus hop aroma, pours a slightly hazy amber with a full white head. The Belgian yeast esters are the predominant flavor, with some grassy hop notes coming forward in the finish. Lingering fruity notes, not a bad beer but I don’t think I would class it as an IPA. changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Looking forward to trying some stuff from this brewery! A medium off-white head pours out of the can on top of a copper body. Light scattered lacing left on the glass after each sip. The aroma is citrusy, with wild floral notes; definitely pick up the Belgian yeast. Some pine is burried in the scent as well. The flavors mostly follow that; less citrusy perhaps, and more of a resinous/pine hop flavor combining with the Belgian yeast element. It’s more IPA than Belgian Ale, the yeast just adds a different element without getting in the way, which I like. It has firm bitterness but nothing over the top; nice and dry in the finish. The body is a shade light; at least moreso than expected, but I’d hardly categorize it as thin. I like this. Sometimes the flavors can clash in these Belgian IPAs but this one works quite well.

Golden pour with a white head with a little lacing, Grassy and citrusy aroma. Taste is similar with some maltiness on the backend. Pretty good.

Can. Clear amber, thin head. Strong hop aroma like a traditional IPA but with more sweetness from the yeast. I enjoyed this and would definitely have again. flatmatt (1627) - Northville, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2012
16 oz can. Pours amber with a white head. Light grassy, floral hop aroma. Flavor is similar, floral, grassy, hints of citrus hops. It’s an alright pale ale on its own, but I’m not sure where the "Belgian" is supposed to come in. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Can. Clear copper with a big, beige head. Sweet barnhouse funk and malt aromas. Light and sour with apples. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Sampled right after Tree Hugger, and prefer this. Slight Belgian sweetness infuses what is otherwise a solid IPA.
