Aroma is Belgian yeast, pine and hops. The flavor is light grapefruit, fruit, Belgian yeast funk, malts and a dry and bitter finish. Reminds me a little of Duvel Triple Hop, the hops here are a little more bitter and drier than most American ales.

Can (2013 assumedly) in a trade with theAlum, drunk on 2/16/14
Slightly hazy orange-amber beer is topped by a small white head that recedes to cover.
TROPICAL FRUITS. Yes, this is nice. Pineapple, mango, kiwi, that sort of thing. Lush, green hops and citric notes follow up the tropical fruit notes and a lightly sweet crystal malt note provides balance. Medium high to high strength of aroma, no flaws and just pure, aromatic hoppiness without all the acidity.
Hop bitterness, incredibly juicy fruit hop flavor and almost the perfect amount of pale malt sweetness collide on the palate. Soft texture and light but engaging carbonation keeps it drinkable, though it does get too sweet by the end of the glass. Bubble gum and light mango esters build on the finish and it gets a bit wit beerish but the hops are done so well they could almost put arsenic in this stuff and it wouldnt matter. Need to try more from these guys....

Tap at Kedzie Brewery, served in Tulip: Golden hue with a small head. The aroma is fruity and slightly dank with a herbal and grassy ester. Biscuity malt and an overwhelming rind-y vapour. The taste has a crisp hoppy bitterness with juicy and earthy notes. Hint of caramel and lot of grainy tones, lightly spicy finish. The mouth feel is a tad thin and soft for the flavor profile. Dry and tannic like finish. A nice enough brew but sort of got that been there, done that feeling while drinking it.

Can from Milk and Hops, Chelsea. Pours an unclear golden color with a frothy head and medium lace. Citrus, orange, and pepper. Wheat, clove. Some resiny notes, grass, peach, and a bit of dough. Tingly, spicy mouthfeel, fairly dry on the close. Pretty nice.

Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pours a translucent, lighter copper with a creamy white head of foam. Aroma is sweet with lots of citrus and sweet Belgian candi sugar. Taste is fruity sweet and a mild bitterness toward the finish.

Had this on draft at the revolution taproom/brewery. Very dry beer. Little like champagne. Tart. Unusual. Can't figure this one out. Ok beer

500ml bottle shared by Brian. Medium bodied, very mellow and sessionable. Nice tropical tones, a mix of Simcoe or Summit or Nelson or something and Belgian yeast, really compement each other well and merge effortlessly. Very clean. Solid offering.

dmac (6203) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2014
12oz can via trade. Poured a rusty bronze body under an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma is citrus, lemons and tangerine, yeast, breads, tea. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly syrupy finish. Flavor is yeasty, bread grains, citrus rinds, tea leaves, touch old lemons. Nice stuff.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a mild burnt golden orange color with a thin finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice even pace. Mild lacing sticks in rings. The aroma balances nicely between some white pepper, Belgian bready malts, and some sweet citrus. The flavor initially yields to the bready sweetness and then entices the citrus and white pepper for a nice balance. Some floral dry sweetness in underneath. Gently folds the sweet floral over the bready malts in the aftertaste and rolls into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Some stickiness, but not cloying. Overall, good Belgian pale ale that I would have again.
