Appearance: A deep, hazy, gold with a striking foamy, two-finger, white head.
Aroma: Spicy yeast, orange, grassy.
Taste: A medley of spices and an herby grassiness, orange definitely there. This might be a good gateway beer for your friends that don't like Belgians, it's just Belgiany enough.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with light effervescence. Leaves dry with a slightly lingering spicy bitterness.
Big fan of this beer. Perfect for a warm July night. And at just 6% ABV you can probably have two before you should slow down.

Poured into a tulip from a bomber.
A - Nice golden honey on pour with a big fluffy one finger head that clings to the glass and has good retention.
S – Fruity esters jump out first with a touch of that old familiar Belgian yeast funk. Some clove in there as well as green apple.
T – Nice burst of orange, lemon and grapefruit up front. Little bit of an earthy, pine taste. She has a nice bite of bitterness in there. It grabs you and goes though and does not linger on the palate. Shade bit of maltiness in there as well.
M – Quick bitterness and off it goes. Leaves you wanting more. Crisp and dry with the fruit lingering on the palate.
O – Nice job here. I love the nice biting bitterness and the fruity flavors that come through. Felt like an easy drinker and it was. You could easily have a couple of these and enjoy a night. I am going to be needing more.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #55 (August 2011):
Not lacking in head as it pushes past the rim of the glass; pale golden color. Peaches, citric peel, green peppercorn, faint musty yeast, honey malt and a kiss of alcohol in the aroma. Deep smoothness. Hard citric and herbal flavors from the hops; more flavor than bitterness, and the bitterness is not timid. Fresh biscuit maltiness, mildly toasty and a graininess that does not want to leave the palate. Semi-dry finish with some ripe fruit under the grain and hops. Great job from De Struise Brouwers, Louisville Beer Store and New Albanian on this collab.

Pale gold appearance with a decent pinky finger head on top that is full of pretty big bubbles and sustained itself pretty well. Nose is piney - a brash, almost harsh "in-your-face" kind of pine at that.
Taste starts off like a winter white with a little dry sweetness, then the hops kick in at the middle - and kick a DIPA/barleywine kind of hard - before the finish dries out completely and leaves me feeling parched.
I've tried maybe a half dozen domestic Belgian IPAs and liked them all, but this one is the most unique I've tried. Recommend giving this one a shot if you get the chance.

Pours a yellow hazy golden colour. Lots of white frothy head. Smells nice and hoppy and light. Tastes a nice light hoppy. Cascade is most present on the nose and tongue. Well carbonated and pretty solid. I'm not that blown away by it but it's a tasty brew. Overall something i would drink again but not seek out

Thanks to phillybeer7779 for sharing!
Very pale color with nice fluffy eggshel lacing
Very little belgian yeast character in the nose, but awesome lime and clementine orange peel oil
Cleanly bitter without any long lasting bitterness. Lots of juicy citrus with a weird phenolic aftertaste (like from the yeast and not hops) that is almost metallic
Very nice little beer and super easy to drink. The label is also dead-sexy

Bomber poured into a snifter
Representing a local brewery
A- Semi Hazy orange with almost no head whatsoever which i thought quite strange.
S- A lot of wheat notes up front and a nice Belgian yeast character. A citrus fruitiness from the hop and yeast. A pungent smelling brew
T- A light bitterness up front followed up by a wheat character. Belgian yeast is obvious. Hop profile is extremely fresh and citrusy, with a hint of pine. It isn't a strong hop flavor but it is very nice.
M- This beer has a nice feel to it and is very easy drinking. Leaves behind a good bitterness and pleasant aftertaste.
O- A refreshing take on an IPA, quite enjoyed this one. 8 bucks a bomber is pushing it but still a sold beer.

Served this 22 oz. brown bottle in a Tripel Karmeliet glass. No date. This beer is a collaboration of NABC, De Struise Brouwers, and the Louisville Beer Store. The massive head sat on a bright golden body and left clumps of lace down the glass.
The smell is dusty, fruity and bubblegum.
The taste begins fruity then yeasty with a sharp bitterness that softens and lingers a long time. Citrus peel and pear. Belgian yeast dankness without much chalkiness. Mild peppercorns. Enough hops to keep the tastebuds alert. Drying finish.
The mouthfeel was slightly thinner than expected. Smooth with modest carbonation.
