tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Gauzy, almost neon-ish yellow with a skimpy white film that barely covers the entire top of the brew. Aroma has fresh, weedy hops, mild orange rind, wet grass, a touch of florals, & I swear Iím picking up some Belgian style, spicy yeast... (I did not realize until later that this was listed as a Belgian ale, so I guess it makes sense). Taste has plentiful spicy & borderline earthy hops with more floral & grassy notes opening up mid-palate, not as citric as the nose would seem. Lightly pungent & quite bitter, lasting with a lingering sting into the aftertaste. Hops steal the show, the yeast & bready malt take a backseat in the flavor department, here. Crisp, snappy mouth feel, mostly dry finish. Decent Belgian-y style IPA.

Bulk_Carrier (4217) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a murky burnt yellow color with a sly transparency. Carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace to fill a fingerís worth of white foamy head that died off fairly quickly. Filmy clingy foamy lace moves around the glass nicely. The aroma starts off with some sweet pear enveloping a slight white pepper and then a sly grassy to herbal sweetness. Sweet breadiness with Belgian tones sliding in. The flavor wants to blend the sweet pear to the white pepper spice, but slyly leans towards the sweet pear. Light grassy to citrusy hops move into the taste. Sly dry vinous craving. Vinous/grassy/citrus/pear/white pepper-esque aftertaste flowing on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to almost medium on the body on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Mild carbonation feels good. White pepper doesnít bother my tongue = harshness even feels somewhat low. Overall, good Belgian IPA that I could have again.

jookos (5883) - FINLAND - JAN 12, 2017
[email protected] Dirty orange, unclear. Crazy label. Well carbonated. Not gushing or anything, but bubbles up on the tongue. Bit strawy, old hay malty nose, pale, bit barnsy feeling, old planks. Saisonny belgy spicing, dried fruits. Med bodied, dried orange peel. Dried malts. Pretty good length, lingering flavour. Very belgy. Pretty nice. A tad murky but still consider the flavours clean. Might choose a brighter one over this if I had to though.

ronaldtheriot (1842) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Why Canít IBU has an extremely thick, spongy, slightly off-white head, an opaque, gold-orange appearance, with fierce, tight bubble streams. The aroma is of orange peel, fruit juice, spices, and mild barley malts. Taste is of those elements, with some lower-level bitterness, white pepper, spiced white holiday bread, and citrus pith. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Why Canít IBU finishes on the dry side. Refreshing. RJT

kraddel (6864) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 23, 2016
Pours clear yellow, good white head. Smell is mild fruity by hops. bit malty. very hidden yeast. Taste is sharp, bitter, rather dry, mild hoppyness. somewhat malty underneath. Not very complex, the bitterness ( clearly bitter, but not overly intense ) kinda rules the whole pallet.
