COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Roman name for the Low Countries–is a marriage of the best in American and Belgian brewing traditions. Belgian pilsner malt, a generous amount of American and European hops and a unique Belgian yeast strain combine to give Belgica big notes of citrus and spice, creating a lively concoction perfect for spring in the Rockies–or the Ardennes. 7.2% ABV.

First released as Belgian IPA:
Just for fun, the brewers took our Titan, a hop forward American IPA and introduced a Belgian yeast strain to it. The result is unique Belgian-style ale with lots of fruity esters, a citrus hop flavor and nice hop bitterness that’s surprisingly smooth. 7.5% alcohol by volume.

Hazy gold beer. Yeasty orange citrus nose. Semi dry and semi soft palate, turns light and frothy. Honey - orange and then a blossoming bittering coriander spice that really takes over and leaves a bitter aftertaste past the dry finish. Aquired taste but not bad.
