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

Nice yellow color with some foamy white head. Excellent citrus & belgian yeast notes in the aroma. Really really love the smell of this beer - easily my favorite aspect - I didn’t even want to drink it it smelled so good! Flavor seems like its going to be a bit of a hop-bomb, but then the belgian aspects of it mute the bitterness of it a bit, creating a nice balance between flavors. Medium bodied, and dangerously drinkable, I can’t wait to try this one again.

clingman71 (300) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Draft at The Pub at the Greene. Orangish color, pretty clear, nice foay beige head that dissipated into nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and pine, just a touch of spice and sugar. Begins with the malt sweetness of crystal/caramel malt? and good presence of pine and citrus in flavor and aroma. The hops are sticky and resinous, chewy, very good balance. There is a fruitiness beyond the citrus, Belgian yeast influence perhaps? The initial sweetness leads to a blend of grainy, bready, slightly spicy tastes as the beer warms. I’m not sure I would call this a DIPA, sort of a tweener in my opinion. Strange, but very enjoyable, the more it warmed, the more I liked it. I would love to see this bottled and distributed on a regular basis. This is easily my favorite Gooses Island behind the Bourbon Co. Stout series.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Served on draft at Madison’s in Madison, WI at the GTMW pre-party under the Minx moniker. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of toffee, apples, earthy notes and citrus. The taste is toffee, apple, citrus and earthy hops. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.

4.1
ketchepillar (1199) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 16, 2010
On tap at El Bait Shop under the name Minx. Damn fine iipa. The right way to mix American and English hops in an IPA. Fruity. Grassy. A bit grape-y. Nice slightly bready malt character. High carbonation.
