look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 7/2012

A: Pours a very slightly hazy golden copper color with a generous 2 fingers worth of puffy head

S: This is more on the American side in terms of hops, with some nice citrusy and grassy hops along with Belgian yeast in the background that imparts a nice spicy fruitiness that goes great with the hops

T: Juicy citrusy hops along with a slight Belgian yeast influence and a lingering bitterness are the highlights, with the alcohol nowhere to be found. Definitely clean for the style

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation

O: A solid Belgian IPA that borders on being a little too bitter but is constrained a bit by the nice malts and fairly reserved (in terms of flavor profile) Belgian yeast. Abv is just right, and makes this bomber a perfect serving. If you're looking for a nice middle-ground Belgian IPA, look no further

Love the name and it pours a hazy golden orange hue which leaves a two finger creamy head that stays and leaves sudsy clingy lacing everywhere,the smell is orange peel,caramel candy,butter popcorn and resinous piney hops,the mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated with tastes of boiled candy,toffee,citrus,kumquats,mango and finished bittersweet with piney bitterhops and sherbet,overall its quite drinkable and i would drink again.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a hazy medium orange with a brownish hue and a large (2-3 finger) white fluffy head that was mostly diminishing, leaving behind a few loose puddles with a medium collar and good sticky lacing.

The aroma was of herbal hops, a toasted grain malt and a soapy Belgian yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (orange) and a mild fruity ester.

The taste was mildly bitter-sweet with a hint of caramel and a light fruitiness early on, becoming a tad hoppier and a bit yeasty with a slight citrus peel presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted a good long time following the swallow, with a mild fruity bitterness that was left to linger for a while longer.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and dry in texture with an almost medium carbonation.

Overall a very well balanced brew with a decent hoppiness, which was offset slightly by the mild sweetness and funky Belgian yeast...
