Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):

Clear and copper, with an impeccable off-white lacing on the glass ... a beautiful-look- ing brew. Orangey, with mineral salt, floral notes and a little biscuit in the nose. Crisp medium body with a deep smoothness that runs well with the assertive hop bitterness. Fruity, with hints of caramel, hermit cookie dough and a little bread. The malt stands tall enough and does not topple over as the hops make a hard push of bitterness and flavor. A bit of orange rind, herbal and faint tobacco show as the hops unfold. A quick kiss of warming, alcoholic, fruity esters in the middle lingers on the breath. Long hop finish with a base of malt to help it along.

Sip after sip, the hop flavor grows on you, and near halfway through the bottle, this beer becomes near exceptional. Soft goat cheese coated with fresh cracked black pepper, can- died walnuts and fresh figs seem like a good pairing here.

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is lots of citrus: orange, mandarin, lemon and grapefruit.
The taste starts with a strong pine bitterness, moderated by the malt, but still finishes with a dry pine bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A delicious IPA.

Handsome dark orangey amber in the Duvel tulip. Starts with a nice foam but that dissipates after less than a minute. Thin with a light body that seems to accentuate the acidic tang. Aroma of pineapple and orange peel.

Rather sweet with a sharp taste. This tastes like a Pilsener that had a hop attack. Interesting spicy notes. There is just the faintest fruity note of sour citrus and then the endless bitter grapefruit peel.

A highly hopped-up and tremendously bitter brew that keens on a single sharp note. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Beer Revolution in Oakland.
