Draft sample at The Denver Rare Beer Tasting event during GABF week on 9/25/09. big hops on nose... pours a deep orange with a white head... medium body... some Belgian yeast, citrus, peach and other light fruit make this Belgian IPA a pleasure to drink.... nice bitter finish.

the belgian portion of this beer overwhelmed the hoppy half. could have used more hops and malt.

Pours a deep orange, hazy. Nose is floral hops, pineapple and citrus mixed with sweet fruits and malt. Flavor is belgian yeast and citrus hops. Clove, banana, sweet malts. I am not a fan of the Belgian IPA for the most part, but this one was nicely done.

Tan with a firm head. Piquant nose, zesty, lemongrass, mint leaves, with Belgian Summer and Grains of Paradise on the finish. A wonderful, symphonic bouquet. Intense black peppercorn and grains of paradise flavor dominates the monotonic experience. Warming, peppery Grains of Paradise endure on the palate.

draft at hudson house. pours cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. beautiful tangy sweet floral and pineapple nose with some watermelon thrown in for good measure. delectable creamy medium body. frustrating vacant mid palate. kills the whole beer. lovely acidic pineapple and watermelon finish.

Aroma of clove, banana, and tons of juicy citrus, some perfume as well. Pours a hazy orange with a thin fluffy head. The flavor is mostly banana, clove and spice up front, followed by lime, orange, grapefruit and more sweet banana and clove. A touch metallic at points. THe citrus aspect was interesting, but a tad sweet for my liking.
