Nice beer but not as hoppy as I expected. . Had at Brewery Vivant's tap room in Grand Rapids with Raith. BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Grand Rapids can. The can mentions a tulip glass but it also tastes good in a plastic Hampton Inn glass. Good base IPA but honestly missing the Belgian side of it. Tasty but not necessarily unique. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
16 oz can. (Siciliano’s) Grand Rapids, MI.AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Tea-like bitterness, mild tart fruitiness and mild bitterness in the aroma.
Mild bitterness, mild yeast and some malt in the flavour. What Belgian IPA? Yeast IPA... that’s what it is. But not bad.
16oz can from the Deli Lama in Lake Villa. Pours an orangey copper with a white head. Some streaks of lace. Aroma has spices and pine and plastic. Maybe citrus. Taste is of tangy spicy yeast, pine and resin. Some malt chasing way underneath. Light to medium bodied. Some alcohol. Finishes long and tangy sweet with a bitter undercurrent. Interesting. Too many guns in the wrong direction -- in the belgian-y line opposed to the ipa-ish line. hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
Rated on 02-01-2012. This canned IPA pours a medium sized very fizzy off-white head with a long retention, gold hazy body and virtually no lacing. The aroma is malty, yeasty, citrus, pine hops, and semi-sweet. The flavor is semi-sweet, caramel malt, herbal, citrus, and pine hops. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable with an enjoyable all around good flavor. It is not an overly hoppy tasting IPA and it is worth trying.

Can- pours clear copper frothy tan head. Nose of Belgian yeast, candied sugars, phenols , citrus and lemon rind. Estery Belgian yeast and clove flavors and some interesting hop bitterness. Avg BPA and a little heavy.

Poured a darker orange color from the can with aromas of yeast, sugar, light citrus and malt. Flavors match the aromas yeast and bread up front followed by light hops and citrus, mild bitter aftertaste. ben4321 (6510) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Can at Shoeless Joe’s, 11/16/15. Clear golden-orange color with an off white head and drippy lacing. Citrus and citrus rind on the aroma and flavor. Has a yeasty spice component, as well as some grassy notes. Tastes balanced with the hops coming through more on the drier close. Feels medium bodied with a softer carbonation. Dryness feels more like that of a dry Saison than an IPA, but it definitely has that Belgian-style IPA feel overall. First thing I’ve tried from these guys, and this is a solid, but not amazing beer. jgb9348 (6259) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2016
Rich slightly hazy golden and copper coloured body with a nice fast-dying tan head, about 3 centimetres tall. Aroma of belgian yeast, spices, pungent malt, cleanser, pine, resin and a good dose of deep fruit. Meidum-bodied; Strong piney and resinous flavour with a large hop bitterness, some subdued belgian spiciness from the yeast and a good malt flavour that is on the edge of bitter. Aftertaste shows a well-rounded flavour of a lot of hops, some light malt and a good deal of the belgian yeast strain. Overall, a well-balanced beer that hits the right notes, but just not as good as others in this style, especially with the yeast chosen here - the hops are nice here, but simply not as complex as I would have preferred! I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 24-July-2015 for US$2,99 sampled at home in Washington after the Red Wings were eliminated from the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs earlier this weekend on 24-April-2016.
