Draft. Golden color with a white head that hung around. light aroma with a bit of fruit with a very light hop smell. Taste has a lot of creamy banana from the yeast with a nice hop bite at the end. Better than I expected. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Tasted at the 16th Bistro IPA Festival on April 6, 2013. This India Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, yeasty, sweet and estery. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. A very Belgian Like beer, fruity and estery. The bitterness kind of sneaks up on you, builds as you go. Nice carbonation. Lots of residual sweetness, and some nice bitterness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013

Euston Tap. Keg. Light haze on this gold beer, small white head. Palate is soft with good fine carbonation. Softish creamy malt, semi sweet. Startling flavours of cream, banana, mint and flowers! Trace of generic fruits and a whisper of bubblegum. Finishes smooth and creamy with nibbly carbonation. Mild orange bitterness in the aftertaste. Different and quite complex.
Tap at Friends of Ham, Leeds. Clear gold colour. Thick, tight, lasting white head. Looks the bee’s knees. Yeasty, light fruit, bubblegum. Some caramel sweetness. Low carbonation. Sweetish finish. Nice beer, not sure where the IPA bit comes into it, though. DedicatedToFun (4000) - Santa Monica, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013

Pouring at BCTC. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Soft Belgian yeast, musk, light citrus on the nose. Musk, sweet citrus, musky with faint pineapple, melon and yeast. Soft and spicy into the finish, very tasty. AdamChandler (5052) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Nice clarity, golden creamy head. Smells of hallertau / saaz hops, almost fruity belgian wit quality with some wheat. tastes pretty creamy, very bitter with a nice grassiness. I get some oak / cedar. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap @ Daily Pint. Orange pour with a white head. Not much of an IPA aroma, but plenty of bubblegum, banana, and yeast. Light spices and citrus and sweet bready malt. Good malt flavor of bread and biscuit. Plenty of banana, some bubblegum, and a touch of spice. Mild yeast and citrus to the flavor. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Tap at Daily Pint. Clear orange pour with weak, white foam. Raw malt nose with biscuit and mild Belgian spicy/estery yeast. Taste is mild celery, cleaner though with spicy hops and thicker sugar. More of just a sweeter Belgian blonde than an IPA. Drinkable, but not what I expected.
