Pale cloudy pour. Small head with some lacing. Aroma of citrus from the Citra hops. Light grain notes. Mouth is nice and full. Taste is lots of citrus. Clean aftertaste. A very easy drinking ale. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Growler. Pours golden yellow with slight haze and foamy white. Aroma has a nice soft clementine, orange zest, and white grape. Nice nose. Flavors have citrus kick, clementines and cantaloup, honey malt notes, very subtle spice character. I’m guessing it’s a Belgian and American yeast blend as the yeast doesn’t have a clear belgian character. Could really use higher bitterness as the finish sorta dies off real short. It is still a tasty BPA even though far from stellar. Newk (299) - - JUL 3, 2012
Poured from tap at revolution. Pours a nice clear color with a small head.
Nice and aromatic with aromas of spices, hops, fresh picked citrus and some florals.
Medium bodied, but lacking a mid and finish. Nice flavors of spicces, citrus and some hops.
A nice and refreshing brew. It’s lacking a slight bit, but no complaints for what it aims to be. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Rev strange bird. Growler thanks to dan and the neiweems... Pours a
clean mostly transparent medium orange brown hue and topped with a
thin to medium soapy white head... Nice fresh clean citra and tropical
fruit aroma. Juicy and pleasant... Flavors are somewhat lacking
compared to the aroma. Not so much of a Belgian yeast profile. Flavors fall a bit short and crisp, lightly dry. Ok but really enjoyed the aroma more so than the flavor.

Draft sample at MWBBF. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. The aroma delivers fresh, clean hop character- citra fruitiness- with bready malts, mild spice, and an overall light Belgian yeast character in the nose. Flavor of bready malts, citrus and tropical fruits, straw, wheat, and dry grains. Medium-bodied, with a clean mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Nice Belgian IPA.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of citrus, spices, and a little bit of sweet Belgian yeast. Refreshing beer. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is solid with lots of bright, citrus pines and tropical fruits with a nice Belgian yeast note that accompanies the hops well rather than taking the forefront. A light spiciness, some resins, and a grainy pale malt backing. Flavor is lighter with grainy pale malts, spicy yeast, and some grapefruit pines up front before the Belgian yeast comes in a bit more with a few tropical florals. A light pepper towards the end as this finishes dry and spicy, but somewhat fruity with a subtle Belgian yeast note, a light earth and pine, and a lightly sweetened grainy pale malt. Light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light, clean, easy drinking body with a somewhat crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent BPA. Really nice aroma and an enjoyable flavor. I like how the Belgian yeast doesn’t dominate. Finishes a bit quick, but not bad. 3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2012
draft. Cascade and Citra-hopped but the Belgian yeast overwhelms. medium light body, high acid, high bitterness. medium-high sweetness (consumed in tutti fruttti esters). the citra and cascade are drowned and quieted leaving the whole experience one of sugar, esters and acid and way out of balance in their favor. iron / metal / dishsoap phenols show up when warmer. disappointingly bad.
