750 ml bottle thanks going to Lectvay in our trade. Hazy copper color with huge head retention aroma is a tad strange, spicy funky Belgian yeast with some over ripe fruits.Ferris (15003) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2014
The flavor kind of clashes a bit. The Belgian yeast wants to display itself but it over run by hops. Dry texture with some lingering bitterness. Orange pith, grapefruit and light stone fruits. Chewy yeast texture. The yeast and caramel malt try to balance the hops but... I don’t know, I think if the brewery refines this and takes one element and fine tunes it it will be a better brew. Worth a try for sure but not a fan here. But I do like the creativity in this attempt.
Draft - Big citrus and tropical fruit. Cloudy with a very nice and rich white head. Just as it smells, big fruitiness and a sweet yeasty finish. Quite nice. hopdog (12341) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2014
22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. Fruity, Belgian yeast, lighter spice, caramel, and some citrus. drfabulous (7783) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 28, 2014
750 ml bottle. All the time I had this in my fridge, I thought it was an Abbey. Uh oh. Still, if hops have faded, malty orange with some spice. BigBeer45 (1522) - Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Sampled from a bomber bottle,
this hoppy ale had a medium to dark orange pour and presented an off-white foamy cover,
the head of bubbles had a faint yellow and orange tint to them,
the cover lowered to a thinner cover but was always there, it left nice spots and rings of lacing, there was no sediment in the bottle,
the nose had aromas of toasted malt, citrus fruit hops, some bread, orange, orange pith, faint grapefruit and peach,
the nose was pretty fruity,
the flavors were toasted malt with citrus hops, and lots of orange with a touch of grapefruit, there was a little sweetness,
the finish had a fine hop bitterness and citrus that dried the palate a bit, the hop bitterness hang around a bit, there was a little malt and fruit sweetness afterwards,
the mouth feel was about medium with carbonation that was towards the soft side, it was creamy on the palate,
this IPA2 was not a big in your face hop drink but a good drink,
a fruity IPA drink, the hops are noticeable but not over the top, the malt is in balance with the hops, this was a very fruity IPA2 drink.

Cloudy light brown. Some Spivey esters and citrus hops on nose. Fairly malty with some peppery spice on muddled malt. Not for me. MrHangover (4439) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2014
Bottle, thnx to boisebeerguy for sending me this. Pours a hazy amber beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma of tropical fruits, slightly malty and has some touches of caramel. Fruityness is defintely overpowering the very nice aroma in a good way. Flavor has loads of fruits, a subtle bitterness that lingers in back and a soft carbonation. Nice in balance, nice IIPA. Good stuff! kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to MrHangover. Pours hazy orange brown with small tan head. Aroma of grassy hops, tropical fruits, citrus and some yeast. Flavour is light sweet and over moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. deanso (10070) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - APR 4, 2014

Thin creamy white head. Cloudy blond pour. Lovely hoppy aroma. Lovely bitterness. Very nice k9coug (116) - USA - APR 3, 2014
Aroma of new carpet, not a bad thing for a hybrid Belgian. Beautifully clear dark amber color. From a growler. Large head on first pour that died quickly, much less on subsequent pours. A targeted bitterness. I did not get a citrus profile. Interesting local beer. Got a killer deal.
