Inspired by our love of Belgian ales and hoppy West Coast ales. We bring Cascade and Columbus hops together with our house yeast for a smooth Belgian style hopfest. Best when fresh, this beer is not for aging. Thanks to our friend Todd Russell for help with the pilot batch.

22 ounce thanks to James. Big orange like pour. Caramel but not overbearing. Nice and hoppy. Bit yeasty. Some fruit. March bottling. Pretty tasty overall.

Flat out the best beer Ive ever had. Perfect combination of flavor in a delightfully hoppy powerful brew. Poured from the twenty two ounce bottle into a nice craft beer glass to appreciate the color, texture, and unfiltered beauty. Simply a sublime Belgian IPA artfully brewed in NH, with a good bit of character from the sticks coming through in a pine undertone.

j12601 (10089) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Adam from Sloop at TAP-NY. Pours a hazed amber with a large white head. Smells of old paper and infections. Sweet old paper, old fruit. Nasty old toast. Finishes with the flavor of old angry fruits.

Nuffield (4130) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2013
Reasonably complex flavors, with the hops (classic Cascade notes) and the spicy and lightly-to-moderately yeasty fruitiness also there. Not a spectacular finish, but all around good. Bottle.

bottle. murky dark orange under a small cream colored head. floral and earthy hops with bruised peaches and a pinch of pepper in aroma. flavor is quite complex actually. you can taste all the different ends. the pungent, citrusy west coast hop influence, the peppery spicy yeast and syrupy light fruits. an earthy, full bodied beer with a lot of flavor.

(bottle) cloudy amber colour with a small tan head; aromas of fruit; honey; very bitter flavour with a long bitter finish. Definitely an IPA and not a Belgian.
