On tap at the Draught House. Drank alongside the regular version of this beer, Missile Dropkick.

The beer pours a deep red color with a tan head. The aroma has some nice floral hop notes, as well as some orange and sweet malt. The flavor has a good bit of Belgian yeast, as well as some sweet toffee, juicy orange and a hint of pine. The alcohol is very noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Got this one on tap @ Whip In. Great atmosphere to drink local beers!

A: Clear cloudy cooper with a thin head.

S: Definitely plenty of grapefruit, hoppy floral, and a bit of syrup.

T: Belgian yeast appeared with sweet hop and light bitterness with smooth finish.

M: Big mouthfeel which flavor expands on the tongue.

O: Definitely not disappointed when I tried it for the first time. This beer is just full flavored and bodied with some yeast character.

A: Dark ruby and almost transparent. Excellent head retention and lacing.

S: Excellent combination of Belgian yeast and American hops. Spicy, piney and floral.

T: A very interesting and balanced combination of caramel-toffee malts, belgiany spice and dank hops. Alcohol also contributes quite a bit but is well hidden.

M: Silky smooth body and medium carbonation. Dangerously easy to drink.

O: Very nice interpretation of the style, with nice focus on the combination of yeast and hops characteristics. Although I could not drink more than one in a sitting, I very much enjoyed it.

Tried on tap at the first anniversary party, 12 May 2012. Served in the Hellbent shaker pint.

Small creamy light tan head lingers. Medium carbonation. Cloudy golden brown in color. Aroma is candy sugar, alcohol, yeast and some citrus. Floral and citrus to start. Quickly becomes citric bitter. Warming ethanol, medium creamy body. Finish is citric, yeasty and bittersweet. Aftertaste is a lingering citric pithiness.

Fairly potent.
