Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Growler from Elliott Bay Brewpub. Hazy gold pour with a short white head which leaves minimal lace. This ale is a great balance of the two styles, I believe EB describe it as an IPA made with a Belgian yeast. Nose is slight yeast, hops and alcohol, with a ripe fruit underlay. Bananas and toast mark the lightly sweet and smoky medium body, while grapefruit and pine characterise the hoppy middle and finish. Carbonation is light (growler) in my sample, but probably fizzier from the tap. Sessionable, or at least I hope so as I have a half-gallon growler to finish! A middle-of-the-pack IPA enhanced by a Belgian character.

Rating #2093- 2015.09.28 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 5, Beer 195 – Draught at Brewpub - Lunch before the plane ride home. Aroma is belgian yeast, orange soda. Palate is lighter in body, sweet citrus notes take over, bitterness is subdued if not suffocated. Girlfriend approved. Left me questioning if this was indeed an IPA, or a mistake on the flight.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft malt and a touch of citrus on the nose. Medium bodied, soft malt, a touch of citrus. Light and crisp, a toucho f grain and a bit of citrus, soft malt and a bit of wheat. Slow grapefruit into the finish, crisp and easy. Pretty light and crisp.

[3/1/15] Draught at Elliot Bay Brewery & Pub in Seattle. Clear deep golden. Soapy aroma with a bit of hops. Sweetish flavor, soapy, with a bit of caramel and bitterish hops. Medium-bodied.

Draft - Belgian fruity yeast, perfume and light lemon. Cloudy yellow gold with a decent white head. Perfume, light Apple and some citrus with a light bitterness.

kathouse (1942) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Medium gold in color. White head emits a heavy spice and herbal character. Body is equally spicy with a strong bitterness. Dry finish.

Sampler, clear pale gold color. Lightly sweet restrained ester with dry biter nonresin hops. Mild mix of fruit happiness. Flavor similar with even more restrained very light esters. Relatively clean finish. Pretty bitter and dry finish. A lighter more dry take on the style than I usually see.

onceblind (10897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear light golden with a nose of spicy earthy hops and pear skin and a slight kiss of jalapeño cheddar. Estery earthy start with a nice peppery tone and some light Belgian fruit esters, semisweet and lightly bitter. Grainy but not bready. Would probably go well with Indian food.

maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark golden color. Nose is very light, with some small yeasty odd elements to it. Taste has some light clove elements to it, and seems very Belgian, and not too much IPA. Meh.

raphael (1303) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at the pub. I smell Belgian gas, lemon and caramel.. Flavors of egg yolk, white sugar and lemon. Don’t think enough hops here to qualify as an IPA, more like a Belgian Dubel with some extra hops. Cleanly done and all that, just not among my favorite types.
