Pouring at the Brass City Brew Fest. Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Interesting aromas, bouncing between fruity and hoppy, loaded with nice citrus notes. Sweet and hoppy, medium bodied. Light grapefruit bitterness, and just barely a hint of metal. Tasty.

Growler thanks to Omar and Ken. The aroma confuses the nose, with notes of apple, banana, twangy spices and Belgian yeast esters. Full and rich on the tongue, thick and chewy with some cherry-ish caramel or munich malt noticed, finishing slightly fusel and dry/pasty. It’s interesting but it doesn’t exactly impress me. The hops don’t work at all with the Belgian yeast, like they tend to do in these Belgian-IPAs actually brewed in Belgium. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Growler (I am guessing this is it, but will move if I confirm that it isn’t) thanks to t0rin0. Pours with a hazy golden brown body and a tan head. Aroma is grassy, catty, windex, pine, lemon and bitter. Flavor is bitter, lemon, citrus. Dry and bitter. Not amazing, but not bad either. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells resiny and floral with a hint of dry malt. Tastes earthy and peppery with a dry finish. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2012
sampler at the brewpub, horribly boozy. Almost barleywine/wheatwine boozy. Very bitter though, which sort of helsp but its alcohol then bitter. Not my type of beer. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Pours mostly hazy murky bright yellowish orange with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma is nice citrusy hops blended with a good belgian phenolic yeast, doughy yeast and maltiness, but lots of pine and some grapefruit. Flavor is lightly sweet with bready pils malts, earthy raw bitterness and citrusy pine with a good tacky raw bitterness and a mostly dry finish. Not quite as refined as I would like, but defintiely a solid belgian DIPA.
