Light straw color. Mild hop smell. Mild flavor. Slightly fruity. This beer is just ok.

22 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big rocky white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet tropical fruit with some earthy funk.

The flavor is sweet bready malts, some fruit and some funk with a decent peppery bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a nice Belgian IPA. Heavy on the fruity hops with Belgian funk to complement.

It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus hoppiness with some pine and grains. The taste was of sweet juicy citrus with a sweet grain backbone and a bit of grass. Good stuff.

On tap at the Orange Street location. Pours yellowish copper solid bright white head and nice sticky lace. Aromas of citrus hops, Belgian yeast and light caramel. Floral hop bitterness with some mild grassiness, accompanied by a bready malt backbone. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisp bitter finish with lingering Belgian yeasts.

Outside of Belgian ipa needing its own style, isn’t 9% an imperial? Anyway, rather unassuming filtered golden color. The aroma is citric and piney. Little Belgian, but it’s there in the finish after a hoppy punch in the face. Lida chill for these days, but not bad

Pours a typical gold color and has minimal lacing. Smells of hops and tastes decent. Was fairly disappointed with the outcome of this one.....Will pass next time around.

keepersj12 (3133) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Just a hint of spice to let you know there is a bit of Belgium here. The aroma is malty sweet with a lot of citrus and pine. The flavor starts with a bit of sweetness and a bit of spice but gives way to the citrus and pine. Dry and refreshing, a very good brew.

This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of grapefruity hops, grass, and caramel. Flavor was lightly stale hops, grapefruit, and caramel maltyness
