Sample at Brewery Vivant on 3/29/13. Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, earthy hops, pepper and banana. Malty flavor with some sweetness and peppery character before a grassy hop finish.

Pint-size can. Poured fiery medium-orange with a tall, sticky white head. The aroma picked up orange rind and fruity yeast, joined by white pepper and cloves.. sweeter, honeyed undertones.. sweet overall, and fairly enjoyable. The flavor found sweet caramel, crusty bread, and honey at the core, with spiced-up darker fruity yeast laced throughout.. the yeast worked a little too hard in here, but it was still alright.. dry, spicy finish. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. again the yeast presence was a little strong.. decent brew.

16 oz. can bought on a trip to Michigan. This has a huge fluffy off white head that leaves powdery lacing. The beer is clear amber. I smell pine and citrus hops with some caramel malt and spice. This beer is hop forward especially with that citrus. Floral notes. Some yeast is tasted but it is subtle as is spice. Caramel flavor and some toast. At the finish spruce lingers on the tongue. Good.

Draft on tap at the brewery (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a rich amber orange hue, darker with a gentle haze. Mellow carbonation, frothy offwhite head dies as a ring, laces ok. Very nice glow in body and edges. Aromas throw gentle fruit, a bit of ester, some firmer grapefruit and lemon. Gentle florals, mellow bitter hoppy nose to start but it is a bit cold. A bit more fruit, oranges and rind throw into the fold as we move on. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter with a firm hop presence. Fuzzy peach, firm grapefruit, lemon rind. Some good floral dryness, decent to medium bitterness hits the palate off the bat. Firmer dryness, the malt body is bready, a touch toasty and carmelized. Firm dryness carries on into the middle, a good bitter hop presence provides synergy. But a firm malt bill also offers some balance. Bread, dry earthy hop presence continues to present itself. Backend is much more dry, light bodied. Some soap, florals, decent citrus but its definitely not the focus. Finish is dry but not overly so, fairly clean, a gentle Belgian yeast presence and touches of fruit move on. Pretty nice Belgian IPA. Really goes through the motions. Not a hop screamer but integrates its hops and what it has quite well. Nice beer.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
16oz can, shared by ryan: Pours a clear pale bronze with a spotty-lacing ring of white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some mild grassy and citrusy hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and light effervescence with some pale malty sweetness and a touch of clove spice before a drier earthy bitter finish.

Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2012
This poured a darker cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of belgian yeasty notes, and some citrusy and dusty hops. Flavor was much the same a bit sweet, and candy like with almost enough hops to make it balanced. OK

Canned 12/18/14, drunk 12/4/15.
Copper-golden body is clear, topped by a small white head with moderate to moderately low retention.
Metal, alcohol, sharp, perfumey esters and peppery phenols are whats left a year later, now that the hops have faded.
Same in the mouth. Intensely sharp, alcoholic and heavily phenolic. Some sweetness, rather artificial, remains, with the same loose, artificial carbonation that all of their canned beers seem to have. A Belgian IPA should be pleasantly Belgian after the hops fade, with esters, phenols and malt character interestingly replacing the hops. Instead, a flabby texture, flaws and alcohol are what remains behind. Drainpour.
