Cloudy golden color. Good white head. Floral hop aroma. Light and full body. Refreshing and delicious. Hard to find flaws with this one. More hops than malt flavor, which is just peachy, only without the peaches. Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Orange color - lots of citrus hop aroma. Flavor is incredibly balanced, love the simcoe dry hopping! This is a very unique and delicious brew. bleeng (1682) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2010
On cask at the firkin fest at the Petrol Station in Houston. Hazy gold, beautiful fragrant fresh fruity hop nose. Taste comes off with very fresh hops, like a toned down dipa. Very smooth-milkshake smooth. I could not believe that this rolls in over 8%-the alcohol is very well hidden. Best beer of the 5 firkins tapped that night. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2010
I didn’t even realize what I was ordering when I did. It arrives at the table and reaks of being a hopbomb. BUt reaks in a good way, except I am not a hophead and am now dreading having to drink this monster. Here goes- WOW, incredibly well balanced. Again, I am not a hophead and this is really enjoyable. Gets ponderous towards the end and the hop burps suck, but good overall. Cavie (4769) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Cask at the Addison Saucer poured into a goblet. Slightly murky appearance that comes as a rusted amber color. Frothy white head lingers for a substantial period of time. Aroma is a wonderful mixture of sweet hops that carry quite the aromatic kick. Warm and sticky smell. Taste follows suite with similar qualities but less intensity. Smooth and soft floral finish with a sharp sweet fruit finish that melds into a dry cough syrup aftertaste. Everything about this comes together in all the right ways.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Tap at Flying Saucer, Houston.Pershing (573) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Pours an average cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is band-aid lemon hay. Flavor is peachy musk and sweat with a finish of orange juice and grapefruit. A touch of pineapple and bread poke in there as well. Fluffy and coating on the tongue. Flavor, on paper, sounds weird but it works. Very tasty and worth seeking out.
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2010 This beer is Awesome!. The bar tender at the flying saucer on the Lake in Garland Texas told me this beer was an American Pale ale. I then tasted a sample and told him it must be an IPA. I could tell right of the bat that dry hopping was involved in the brewing process but was again ill advised by the flying saucer bar tender. Clear gold with an abundance of hop aroma. I thought that this beer was an Imperial IPA. I can deal with a American Strong Ale. Salute! djd07 (15338) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2010
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head leaving good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is sweet fruity hop. Medium mouthfeel with a smooth bitter hop and nice lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink, a good Belgian strong ale from Real Ale. llcooldave (1221) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Nice citrus aroma. Cloudy orange in color with a citrusy hops flavor. Mild pleasing bitterness that’s not over powering. Overall I really like this, it’s easy drinking with some complexity. It also has a decent sweet bitter aftertaste that’s enjoyable. Good stuff! Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2010
On tap at the Draught House in Austin.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very hoppy with pine and citrus notes to go along with some yeast and alcohol. The flavor is orange, grapes, caramel malt, yeast and quite a bit of alcohol. The beer is fairly boozy. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
