ambrata, limpida con bella schiuma iniziale compatta che però svanisce subito, grande struttura, porta al naso sentori floreali molto complessi, in bocca è asciutta ma lascia un amaro estremamente bilanciato e persistente che non svanisce nemmeno dopo essersi lavati i denti... ottima stabzmcgee (72) - Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2011
Aroma is floral and fruity almost like bubblegum. Appearance is golden brown with a nice tan white head on pour that dissipates but leaves a slight trace behind. Taste is that of a Belgian yeast that is a banana-bubble gum taste. Palate is a dash of bitterness from hops with a thin but long finish. Slightly fizzy on carbonation. Overall its not my bag but i can appreciate it as a decent Belgian take on an IPA. Martinus (4740) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2011
Orange golden colour, hazy, nice head but disappearing rather fast.
Aroma of citrus, apricot, yeast, spicy hops and a nice sweet tone of malts. Some other fruits, banana comes to mind.
Rather sweet flavour, balanced with hop bitterness and spiciness. Grapefruit, honey, apricots and malts. Warming alcohol sweetness.
Dry bitter finish, astringent. Nice.

Bottle. Poured an orange color with a nice two finger head. Did leave some lacing as it went. Aroma was grapefruit, spices and banana. This was definitely a Belgian IPA. Clover, fruits, and citrus in the flavor. Very well balanced. A great beer.

On tap from the home kegerator. Nothing like that. Poured many, many times into a Raging Bitch goblet obtained during a Rustico glassware giveaway.
Pours a moderate golden color with quite a bit of haze and a nice white head along with oodles of sticky lacing. The nose brings some fresh Belgian yeast with a bit of white pepper and spice. Strong floral hops mix in well. The taste is a bit spicy with mild fruit and a decent amount of bitterness, though not too much. Feel is a medium body with good carbonation. Drinks quite well and is a really nice example of the style.

A great beer. Hops are floral with a sweet taste. Pours dark gold with a nice solid body. A nice smooth finish with excellent balance from the first sip to the last!

355 ml bottle. Golden body with a small white head. Aroma is just delicious, mostly grapefruit and pines but also peaches and some caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, fruity and bitter. Aftertaste is bitter and a bit herbal. Somehow a bit unusually IPA, but very nice. quiznoaz (310) - Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2011
Draft from Rams Head Tavern (in Savage). Golden amber with little head. Aroma is hops with a light hint of caramel. Initial taste was just bitter, but once I got into it a good mix of caramel started to come through as well. Both flavors lingered well on the tongue. This could get me to start liking IPAs.
