Tap at Steam Haus Gastropub in Corona, CA. Low haze, ugly deeper amber pour. Weak foam. Maple and brown sugar nose. Taste is odd: bitter and harsh with sticky maple. Nothing Belgian or IPA about this. Stale. Dusty mouthfeel. Ick. Probably an old keg. symmetric (71) - - MAY 9, 2013
Smells great; citrusy, piney, and slightly tropical hop notes. Flavor is dominated by Belgian yeast, which isn’t well blended with the hop flavours. Kroney (256) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 19, 2013
Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is mostly yeast with a bit of citrus hops and alcohol. Flavor is similar, with a nice kick from the coriander. Medium bodied. Decent beer. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. Amber with a white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast with some grassy notes. Flavor is classic Belgian IPA. I get some nice yeast notes as well as some pine and grass. There is also some brown sugar sweetness. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Pour from a bomber. Hazy orange color, good combo of hops and citrus sweetness. A nice Belgian IPA.

Bottle shared by wihorock. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, fruit and yeasty aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a solid beer. marcus (10759) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours golden with a decent off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a spicy fruit and caramel malt flavor with a Belgian yeast feel - a liitle banana ester - and a very dry finish. bhensonb (15858) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bomber shared by Marcus. Pours hazy copper with a slight off-white head. Mild aromas of yeast/spice and fruity hop. Med body. Fresh pitted fruit flavor, with some earth and banana ester. Nice finish. Sammy (12852) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
Thanks OCBeer. Very subtly masterfully done. A little like a black IPA, with some Cascadian. Deep yellow with retained head. Nice use of spices. Very good drinkability and refreshing. Hoppy, but not at DIPA level. SDalkoholic (2434) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from E street Liquor: Poured a dense golden brass color and was topped by a frothy layer of foam head. As for the aroma, my nose is instantly gratified with a heavy dosage of Belgian yeast that is decked out with spices and has scents of coriander, black licorice, and crushed peppercorn while also having a strange smell of dried out dank. The flavor is much more subtle in its delivery, however, it still does have a spicy profile of yeast that suggests all of the same ingredients that I mentioned in the aroma, but comes together well with the thick syrupy Karl Strauss malts and light background of zesty citrus like hops. This is an okay beer that’s meant to only be tasted once since I know I won’t be purchasing another bottle or ordering it in a bar unless they don’t have anything better.
