A decent pale ale. Fruity banana aroma with some hopps in there. A Belgium inspired IPA for sure. Slightly sweet fruity finish. Had at home Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Served in a sampler glass at Wild Mountain. Pours amber with a half finger of off white head. Nice lacing. Flavor is hoppy, citrus up front and then hints of pale malt. Lively carbonation gives it a clean finish. Overall a solid pale ale. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. A nice clean beer; medium body malt with a bit of caremel to it and a crisp hop bite with a semi-dry finish. jcr (2763) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Draft. Deep amber, cloudy body. White, frothy head, mostly diminishing. Lots of resin and pine in the aroma. Notes of orange, toasted grain, bread crust. Hint of caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Nicely balanced and refreshing. A bitterness approaching IPA. Very good and better made than Wild Mountain’s Hop Diggity. caesar (7281) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2008
Tap @ brewpub. Clear orange color, short head. Aroma of grapefruit, bit sweetish. Malty body, bitter, grapefruit, citrus. Decent pale ale.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft at the brewery. Unfiltered cloudy dark copper colored body with a white head and medium-to-thick lacing. Dry-hopping very evident, catty, resinous hops, actually resembles American ESB, musty pine and orange hops in the nose and tasted throughout as well. A malty nose of bread crust/toast stands up solidly on the palate, medium to full body, with some weird filmy carbonation issues noticed, but nothing too distracting or annoying. Fresh, delicious, well integrated toast/bran/bread crust with the mildly dry/catty orange flavored hops, with IPA/ESB-level bitterness. Quite good. luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 9, 2008
