2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Floral, spicy hop aroma with citrus orange peel. Color is golden slightly, with a large head with good retention. Citrus, grainy flavor with strong pepper notes on the end. Hop bitterness is high and the balance is more towards the bitterness side. Mouthfeel is medium light with a high level of carbonation that tingles the mouth. Astringency is noticeable on the end. Overall, a disappointing beer from Ommegang. Aroma is pleasant, but the flavor has too much going on between the hop bitterness, the Belgian esters and the strong astringent pepper notes.

Go Cubs! Aroma is very dry, rustic, citrus, rye, grassy, tart, barnyard. Appearance is amber, off white head, hazy. Taste is robust, grain, malt, rye for sure, citrus, spicy, dry. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, rye wheat dry aftertaste. Overall, it’s tasty but hard to categorize it by taste.

12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Trappist Glass at 42°. Color is a hazy golden orange with good carbonation and a fluffy head. Aroma is hops, citrus and Belgian yeast. It has a medium body with a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor citrus, hop spice, a bold bitterness and just a hint of fruit. In the after taste the citrus gives an orange note before fading into a dry bitter finish. Overall it is a tasty and unique brew, very well done. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Pours a hazy medium orangish amber color. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty, with a touch of fruit. Flavor is a nice mixture of malts and fruits. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 27, 2016

Bottle. Cloudy gold in color. Giant head with nice lace. Aroma is the pleasant floral-hoppy notes that I find really nice. The taste is also really nice, not the strip the skin off your tongue bitterness of some DIPAs. Citrus and floral favors. Like it! jdskinns (220) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Draft. Pours a cloudy yellow with white pillowy head. Aroma is yeast, light Hops, some citrus. Taste is spicy with the yeast showing through more than the Hops. Could have been a little hoppier with it being in the name, but overall pretty good. blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2016
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy, very bubbly copper-gold with a large long-lasting fluffy white head. Lots of lacing. Pleasant yeasty and hoppy aroma, herbal as well, and finally fruity and bready. Nice flavour (7+): yeasty, floral, herbal and hoppy along with a long moderate bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Really good stuff. Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Well hopped Belgian pale. Very nicely done and refreshing. A more drinkable Belgian IPA. Worth seeking out. Fresh bottle from Premier. obguthr (6666) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Marshmallow peeps, spearmint, grass nose. Hazy amber, thick lacy head. Cat piss, grass, pear, lillies. Medium body easy carbonation. Wow, how much do I love BPAs? Such bright and complimentary complexity. A harmonious marriage of fruit and floral notes, both from the hops and the yeast by products. This beer is an outstanding representation of the style and the latest iteration of Ommegang’s development of the BPA.
