Growler shared by durwoodx. Thanks Darrell!
The beer is slightly hazy and appears golden orange in color. The head is small and leaves minimal lacing. The aroma brings a prominent sweetness, with oranges, yeast, hops, and a general scent of candied citrus. The flavor tastes similar to that of a tripel in many regards. Overall, a bit too sweet and out of balance with alcohol presence too forward.

Bottle shared with Jcwatts. Pours muddy orange brown with off white head. Nose/taste of yeast, orange peel, bready malts, caramel toffee, pine and citrus. Hops mostly faded over time, but still some citrus and pine. Beer is well balanced and has held up tremendously well. Smooth - more of a Belgian strong now than an IPA. Medium body. callmemickey (4549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Nice light amber body, solid eggshell white head, great lacing.
S: I am getting more hops than yeast in the nose. Soft citrus, liight pine. Some bready malt.
T: Bam, there is the belgian yeast. Rides nicely over top the malt canvas and citrus accents.
M: Smooth. Relatively light body. Good bitter bite.
O: Solid. Enjoyed this beer than most other belgian IPAs. Went well with my meal. brokensail (16601) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 4, 2011
A: The pour is a hazed golden orange color with a finger’s worth of white head.
S: An intensely fruity aroma which I wasn’t quite expecting. Pineapple and citrus (grapefruit and tangerines). A bit of apricot and peaches. Some sugar and pale malts, and plenty of yeast.
T: I was surprised by how hoppy the flavor of this was. A touch of bitterness but overall really fruity. Pineapple, apricot, peach, mango, grapefruit, melon, and tangerine all come to mind. A slight sugary quality and a little bit of bread. Yeast and oak are there, but in the background.
M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: Really solid. This one didn’t sound like it had too much promise, but an awesome flavor all around.

750ml bottle. Rating #63. Medium gold with a light dirty white head. Soapy hop atoms, light soap though and pretty nice actually. Sweet hippy melon sweetness, really unique flavor, I like it. (1551) ericschoon (12) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Loved this beer. A good strong taste with clean finish. A bit of a oaky bite (oaky, I think) on first sip, which was unique. Finished very strong too. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2011
very average for its style. I am not a big fan of the belgian/IPA cross over deal. This had an off taste and didn’t enjoy this one. Not Bullfrogs best show. SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2010

Poured a hazy gold color with a small white head. Hop forward aroma with a floral nose. Alcohol notes all ov Light to medium bodied and warming.er a light malt base. Long floral hop finish with a semi-sweet malt flavor.
