Draught at brewery night. Pale with decent head. Nose is quite lemon sour with some funk. Taste is banana and ripe fruit with cardamom. Slick mouthfeel with chalk and a bitter woody linger. Its an incongruous beer but one that is surprisingly good. Holdwine (1232) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2012
When I think of good beer, I don’t think of Nebraska, but these guys did it again. Hoppy high % yet easy to take. Lemongrass, a bit yeasty and a standout citrus makes this a winner. nickd717 (4701) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 13, 2009
GABF 2009, while waiting in the insane New Glarus line. Clear golden-orange in color with a somewhat fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and floral hops, good but somewhat unpronounced for an IPA that is meant to be West coast style. Flavor is sweet caramel malt and pale malt, light fruit, and citrusy/floral hops that lend more bitterness relative to aroma/flavor than a West coast style IPA should have. Just a touch of yeast present. I see this is meant to be a Belgian IPA. Think it fell a bit short on the Belgian aspects. Body and carbonation are medium. deyholla (11721) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Sampled from the tap at the 2010 GTMW. Poured a near clear gold with a near white head that dissipated lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of pine hops with a hint of citrus but a bit one note. Flavor was more complex with pine to citrus with a bit of spice and grain coming out in the finish.

Draft, pours a golden body with a full white head. Nice hop tones in the aroma, citrus, fruit and a sweeter honey tone. Dusty earth tones a fruit sweetness and a sticky warming. Feels to sweet and boozy despite the fragrant hop tones.

Draft at Teresa’s. Poured a thicker golden/orange with a dense white head. Aroma was loaded with grain, fruity esters, yeast And alcohol. The body was slightly syrupy with average carbonation and lots of alcohol heat. Flavor was a combo of grains and alcohol with some tropical fruits. Blah.....to hot.

Sampled @RBWG. Pours murky gold with a small white head. The nose is spicy yeast and hops. The taste is light funk, yeast and tart hops. Interesting brew. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2011
[Tap] Pours a hazy golden color with a thin head. Nose is of tropical fruits, heavy wet hops and alcohol mixed in with yeast esters. Sweet taste includes lots of sugar and sweet roll notes blended somewhat haphazardly with a harsh hop bitterness. Oily texture. The alcohol content makes itself known in the finish. Call me a party pooper, but I am just not a huge fan of Belgian IPAs. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Draft on tap at Brickhouse (Madison, WI). Pours a well hazed dulled golden pour, a touch of darker amber. Decent loose whitish head sits atop, laces ok. Aromas are a healthy floral and earthy hopping, touches of citrusy lemon, faint clamour of grapefruit. Touches of bread and toffee. A faint touch of yeasty spice. Initial is medium bodied, good healthy hopping with grapefruit, white grape, and lemon. Some florals, grass, toffee, biscuits, and bread. Into the middle shows dry florals, grass, and lingering citrus. Some bread, dry soapy finish. Ok. Fruity Belgian yeast and esters come full circle. Ok Belgian hoppy beer, not too overbearing malt profile and a healthy but not dominant hopping. Solid, but just not a style I get into much. Nickls (2539) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Tap. Not much head, very hazy vibrant marigold hue. Lots of tripel notes in the aroma with light fruit notes and spice along with vanilla hints. The bitterness does come in but it’s very grassy and almost gin bitter in some respects. Medium to lighter body with ok carbonation.
