Enjoyed on tap at a small restaurant in Portland, Maine.

I had heard about this particular beer from Oxbow and was pretty excited to try it. They served it in proper Oxbow glassware. It poured a bright golden color with one finger of head. Its` nose contains pineapple, orange, grass and some spice. The taste of this belgian style IPA is citrus, grass, brett. It is a bit funky, but not too much so. The mouthfeel is light-medium, a slightly bitter, but certainly dry finish to it. It drinks rather easy for a beer with an abv over 7%. And it goes very meal with a nice sandwich, salad, or low-key meal. If you see this on tap, would recommend giving it a shot.

First had: on tap at Monk's, Philly, PA

Hazy, golden-yellow pour with a creamy white head that retained well, and left layers of light lacing on the glass. Nice aroma, fruity esters, citrusy hops, fresh cut grass. Taste was similar to the nose, citrusy hops and tropical fruit, biscuity malts, fresh grass, light earthy funk, herbal tea, and a touch of lemony sourness. Crisp and clean mouthfeel, light-medium body, and easily drinkable.

On tap at The Lion's Pride, served in a tulip.

Gold color with a thick white head, a good two fingers. It left a lot of lace.

Grassy, earthy hops. Some citrus and fruit. Sweet malt.

The hops dominated the taste. There was a little grapefruit, but more in the way of pineapple. A sweet biscuit background.

Nicely hopped, very drinkable. Not as funky as the name implied.

On tap at Pizzeria Paradisio

Appearance: yellowish pour with decent head and lacing
Smell: Nice citrus with some pineapple and earth, a bit mild
Taste: Similar to the aroma, a bit earthy. Not particularly "funky"
Mouthfeel: medium body and carbonation
Overall: decent IPA, with a name that is a bit misleading

On tap at Meridian Pint before their Allagash and New Belgium event.

Pours a fairly-hazy bright-ish yellow color with a nice bite head and some ringy lacing on the way down. Collar throughout.

The nose has some bright aromatics with a good bit of citrus an some mild pineapple. A touch of cherry and earth behind that. Mild spice. The flavor has some pineapple and other tropical notes. There's a touch of bitterness and just a slight chewiness. There is a faint, faint touch of acidity as well.

Light-medium body with that nice light acidity and accompanying bitterness. Yet again, Oxbow really kills the mouthfeel. Awesome.
