maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bomber into tulip. Light cloudy orange with thin ecru foam. Yeast-driven aromas evoke bubblegum, banana and cantaloupe, blue curacao, and the talc/rubber smell of latex balloons. Super malty, a dizzying vomitfest of cloying tropical fruit, cigar ash and tire store... with a backdrop of steak turing iridescent and slimy. Boozy. Citrusy hop bitterness, but not all that more hoppy than a tripel. Unsettling texture, it felt like hair in my mouth. Seriously, HAIR! Pithy and plasticy aftertaste. IMO, banana and cataloupe are two of the least attractive Belgian flavor profiles, and probably the worst flavors to throw a ton of hops at. Everything about this beer seemed amateurish, cheap and haphazard. Unbelievably bad.

M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - SEP 18, 2014
A hazed, sunny amber body supports a frothy smooth, two inch white head slowly falling to a thick, frothy ring and island with leopard lace and erratic peninsulas all around

Integrated aromatics and flavors of juicy pineapple, white pepper, bright grass, grapefruit, dusty lush floral, peaches, and dried mango accents, all booming over a silky smooth, drying medium body with restrained tickling carbonation leading to an extended, equally flavorful residual with a light, building tact

22oz bottle from launch day in KC, served at 45 and warming into Orrefors Beer Taster

slowrunner77 (11487) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Definitely a Belgian leaning Belgian IPA...more yeasty and fruity than hoppy, though there is ample hops and bittering. Very dry and earthy with fruity blasts from both the yeast and the citrusy hops. A little funk, too. Very nice

RABinCO (1508) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Draft. Orange, hazy pour. Aroma is grass, sugar, orange zest, grass, slightly dank hops. Taste is pretty sweet, but with a slight malt cereal balance and pleasant bitterness. Bit of booze burn. Easy drinking, but hits you fast and hard.

dwatson44 (7) - longmont, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2014 does not count
22oz bottle pored into Belgian tulip glass. Starts with an aroma of pleasant Belgian esters complimented with just enough hops. Earthy backbone with just enough bitterness as well as a small hint of citrus. Noticeable heat from alcohol but not out of balance at all.

culchiem (3843) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from LRS. Hazy orange with a small head. Aroma is yeasty and a little caramel. Flavour is bitter, bordering on sour, dry bitter finish. Caramel and alco.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2014
Cloudy tan, sort of generic IIPA. Floral hop, sweet, alcoholic, but really not going anywhere unique.
