jsporrer (1085) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2017
Pours a medium yellow with a thin white head. Light aroma of tart citrus. Taste is mostly lemon zest with just a slight hop bite. Somewhat of a lemon dish soap taste in the finish. Not too bitter harsh but not that enjoyable for an IPA.

Very clear bright yellow gold. White head. Light tropical mango. Quite resinous. Honey. Pretty bitter. Dry. Lighter body. Long finish. A bit of lingering oiliness. Pretty decent.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Old gold pour. Little head. Tangy hoppy nose, citrus, pine light sweet malts. Taste is of tangy fruits, sweet malts, some pine, some phenols. Lighter than medium bodied, blend is ok. Finishes fruity sweeter than bittersweet. 13.5

BroSpud (2233) - , Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2017
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a white head and plenty of sediment at the end of the pour. Decent enough IPA with the noticeable flavor notes of their Belgian yeast.

DATE: July 28, 2017... OCCASION: Anniversary #16 with the love of my life and the mother of my three boys--couldn’t think of a beer more aptly named to describe how I feel today... GLASSWARE: Liberty Craft House inverted pint.... pours an effervescent, subtly opaque golden amber body that produces robust bubbles that cling to the glass while also basing quite a prolific white head... webbing and cragging at a three-fingered height, it looks the part of an IPA... the Bravo and Simcoe clearly propound dank smell of earth, while the Centennial, Citra, and Amarillo suggest grapefruit, melon, light pine and resin... not overpowering, but welcoming... at 6.5%, smooth, vibrant, balanced, and not bitter at its 60 IBUs, with medium body and lingering finish... oddly, more attention gets paid at its back end than at the teeth... the fruitiness of this beer is appropriate--neither bitter nor biting--and the grapefruit and melon are balanced by light caramel and biscuit malts... some resin, but more floral bouquet... not much else to write or probe... as Ommegangs go, another solid offering but not one that makes me wish I had tried sooner... pushes the style forward or has a unique Ommegang quality to it...
