Draft. Mango and pine aroma, with a mild bitter taste with a long finish. Aroma is great didn’t really pick up the Belgian yeast. I very much enjoyed this twist on the Hoptologist.

Has been a couple of years since the Belgian IPA craze. Combination of pine, slight citrus and yeasty bread. Clear copper with a white head. Citrus more present on the flavor. Yeast well represented. Moderate high bittering. A little in unbalanced.

Average white diminishing head. Good lacing. Hazy orange. Heavy Grapefruit pine aroma, with a little of the belgian yeast mixed in. Full thick alcoholic feel. Long lasting flavor, a little bitter. Can feel the alcohol hanging around. Nice ale for gentle spring day.

From bottle in San Diego. This is a big beer. The Belgian yeast flavors are muted, which is great for me, and the rest is all sorts of pine, citrus, herbs. Sticky oily. A bit too sweet but excellent job for a 9% DIPA.

Nice grassy aroma with a deep clear golden color and a small light beige head. Taste is semi sweet grassy pine goodness. Palate is slightly viscous and goes down smooth. A great brew I highly recommend.

fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Poured from a bomber into a pint glass a dark golden with a light tan head that laced down the side of the glass rather quickly.
Aroma is slight banana Belgium funk but a ton of lemony pine hop. Flavor is a sweet funky hop that overall was totally better than anticipated. Balanced. Would easily consume another bottle.

3.7
Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of tropical fruits, pineapple, candi sugar, and citrus/grapefruit. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small soapy off-white head. There’s a good amount of thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with tropical fruits, faint banana, and candi sugar. The finish has moderate spice, grapefruit, and a hint of lemon peel. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

On tap at Monkey Paw Brewpub. Hazy golden appearance with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma is of heavy citrus, some pineapple, light grass, and sweet sugary notes. Taste is of grapefruit, some tropical fruit, and light pine.

3.7
Bule (2274) - California, USA - FEB 13, 2014
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours an amber color with a bit of head. Intense hopiness and the belgian yeast flavor is overpowered.
