12 oz bottle courtesy of my Wisconsin Cheese Crazed Buddy. Pours a deep coppery color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of belgian spice, cloves, bubble gum and sweet malts. Taste is much the same as the aroma but with a citrusy presence. sthlm (790) - Blank, Alabama, USA - SEP 17, 2010
[Bottle] Pours deep amber with a small beige head. Aroma is pear, banana, and light citrus. Taste is spicy yeast, subtle underlying malt, alcohol as it warms (but generally well hidden), and a lot of pear again. Good mouthfeel, smooth, average length, dry finish. I had nearly given up on "Belgian IPAs," but this is one of the first that has done it well. Everything blends together beautifully, no off-flavors or anything out of place, and it is super smooth and easy to drink. Well done, Tyranena. benpickens (512) - Camarillo, California, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Cloudy, orange-gold which a white frothy head and nice lacing. Biscuity, honey, and spicy clove aromas. Bitter with a nice finish. Like a juicy La Fin Du Monde with a hop hit. Awesome. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Thanks John P Foxy .. . Pours a dark tawny tan .. good foam, lacing is in living color .. . light bitterness with that light fun belgian yeast- a great example of a belgian IPA .. . mild yet assertive- a switch hitter that bats like a steroided baseball person (yes, all pro baseball people are on steroids and/or have shruckin testicles) .. .

12oz bottle. Hazy amber-tan with a foamy, lacy off-white head. Fresh, floral hop aroma. Lacks Belgian-style carbonation but the sweet, spicy yeast notes are impressive. Solidly hopped and quite enjoyable. Lots of underlying fruity yeast tones, and in your face citrus from the hops. Complex and drinkable, this is an awesome beer.

Amber with a white head. Yeast, apples, earthy hops and some alcohol in the nose. Flavor starts yeasty and fruity. Finishes with some light bitterness. Very nice. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Shared at recent tasting, by I forget who. This is a solid beer. I don’t know what the ABV is on this bad boy but I’m guessing that it has to be around at least 12 or 13% because I got a lot of alcohol burn in the nose. Almost somewhat of an astringent feeling. After the burn subsided I got aromas of wheat, honey, malts and hops. It’s a vague definition of the taste, but it was pretty much just like the aroma. Needless to say it was a treat to try it. brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Had this on tap and in the bottle. The tap version showcased the Belgain esters,pear and mango Belgain fruit,with a teasing spicey hop that ticles the nose. bottled version I got more of the caramel malt,with the hop pineness as a solid partner. Belgian not coming through as much. Flavor in both was an initial blast of the Belgian fruits, then a wave of pine hops and caramel finishing with a massive hop bitterness that drys out the tongue,like no IPA I’ve ever had. Initally the bitterness is plesant,but that astringent drying might be a bit much. either way,flavorful, thirst quenching , enjoyable Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Pours a light amber color with medium off-white head. Aroma is like a Belgian Strong Ale, lots of intense yeast, clove and Belgian spice notes. I thought this was a bit lopsided given that it’s a Belgian IPA, but once you cut through the Belgian spice a beautiful IPA shines through. It definitely has Tyranena’s extra IPA house flavor, but that isn’t a bad thing. Easy drinking, refreshing and well done. A solid Tyranena offering. tennisjoel (1460) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Some Tyranena beers are hit. Some are miss. This is a definite hit. This hybrid style is one of my favorites, and this is very well done. Belgian accents with a an IPA base, it hits the mark. May be up there as one of my favorites from this brewer. Good purchase!
