look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Batch 1
Bottled December 2011

Pours a light orange golden color with a really really huge white fluffy head, this happens after taking off the annoying wax on the bottle, head fades at a wicked slow rate and leaves a good deal of lacing on the glass, bit too much head though considering how slow it takes to fade.

Smell has a good amount of citrusy hops, dash of grapefruit, surprising amount of hops considering the bottle is over 4 months born, caramel malt backing balances the aroma.

Taste starts out with citrus hops which quickly fade as the caramel malt begins to show its character, decent carbonation on the tongue which lends a soft mouthfeel, body feels a bit thin and watery though, clean bitterness as part of the aftertaste.

Worth trying, not sure I'll get it again but it definitely makes me want to try their other beers. Very promising.

2.63/5  rDev -28.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Poured chilled in ale glass chez White

A: light straw color; medium head; lots of floaties; very good lacing
S: Belgian style yeast is most prominent; aroma is a bit sour, not very inviting
T: bitter, estery, not wel balanced; needs a bigger malt profile to match the aggressively sharp flavors that dominate;
M: buzzy, quite nice

Not a great specimen of the IPA (my favorite in the genre is Raging Bitch)
