The Audacity of Hops
22 oz. brown bottle
Served in a 20 oz. tulip glass

Pours a hazy and cloudy orange color. A nice head forms on top leaving spotty patterns of sticky lacings.

A very pleasant nose with whiffs of citrus (think orange & limes) and baked bread.

Toasted caramel malt backbone with a sweet syrup flavor underneath. Very “bright” tasting with a really nice hop profile with hints of oranges, herbs and a touch of pine. The Belgian yeast is noticeable, but doesn’t overpower this beer. I detect a touch of spice, perhaps black pepper. The 8% is very well hidden too.

This is a real nice change up to the usual double IPA. The Audacity of Hops
is an interesting and enjoyable local beer.

Bomber poured into tulip. Pours hazy orange with a two finger white head. Smell is tropical fruits, Belgian yeast, pine resin, some green apple. Taste is very fruity, very piney, with tons of Belgian yeast, some banana, some floral spices, slightly dry, amazing balance between the styles, maybe the best I've had. If you're in the area, make sure to try this amazing Belgian IPA. It's got a huge hop profile with a ton of Belgian taste.

A 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Slightly hazy orange color. A medium off-white head that dissipated quickly. There was a bit of lace.

Funky aroma, earthy hops. A good deal of sweet malt.

Caramel taste, funky. The hops were apparent later.

This was a nice Belgian IPA. Smooth and balanced, fun to drink.
