4.1
DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Draft at Craft. Pours hazy deep coppery toward brown with off-tan head. Nose is caramel malt, hops, brown sugar. Tastes caramel malty, with ample hops, brown sugar, and an overall tartness that increases as it warms. Stays tart throughout, and malt-forward, with the hops backing things up.

The best belgian ipa I have ever had very sweet with a perfect hop finish. Almost perfect

Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was full of pine hops with a bit of light grain and yeast backbone. The taste was of pine note with slight floral and grain backbone. Nice.

hayduke (5204) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 28, 2013
At Dark Lord Day in Munster, In a shared bottle tasting. Pours clear orange with white head. Nose of belgain yeast and citrus and pine. Medium body. Flavor is full of belgian yeast with some fruit, and lots of hops. Biter finish. Very nice.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2013
On tap at crunchy's tap takeover. Really not much hop smell. Kind of mild. Pretty average for an imperial.

jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2013
From notes. Draft. Spice, malt and light hops. Meh, it’s ok. This would be better off as a year-round or seasonal rather than of of their "special" beers.

jb (3253) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 20, 2013
On tap at Tap and Mallet Goose Island versus Founders event. Pretty decent stuff. Heavy citrus nose. Orange appearance, it glows. Nice head. Creamy mouthfeel, this is a great beer that ends too soon.

3.2
jrgratz (113) - New York, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Tap at Top Hops. Pours a cloudy golden orange, dense white foam. Scent strong on citrus with moderate floral qualities, notes of yeasty spice, malt. Taste is citrus, bitter notes and spice lingers...sweet Belgian yeast character. Dry and lingering bitterness and spice on the palate. Hop and spice mix is a bit too much for me.

3.4
brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2013
On tap. A tad hoppy, spicy malts, yeast in the aroma. Sweet and spicy, mature, and pretty complex for a brown ale. Tasty.

3.8
falco242 (398) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 On draught at New Bohemia in Mpls w/ elguacho. A slight belgian aroma but the ipa pine smell is missing (which I welcome). Really nice taste that has a hop presence but is balanced with citrus and doesn?t taste like you?re licking a tree. Ends smooth too. I?m not an ipa guy (yet) but this is good.
