1 pint can poured into Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden color with a white two finger foam head. Blotchy lacing. Earthy and fruity scents, characteristic of a Belgium style. Light feel. Decent balance between the hops and biscuity Pilsner malt. Earthy and herbal favors are prevalent--the "Belgium" in Belgium IPA is front and center. Not my favorite variety of IPA but I think this is a nice representation of the style. (8.0)

07/11/13 On tap at Rattle N Hum NYC. As a big Belgian fan, I found this a bit lacking. Nice lacing which I believe is a hallmark of a well crafted brew, but it just lacked the punch & body that I relish.

On tap at the Birdsall House in Peekskill, NY

Pours clouded medium tangerine, lite khaki head, medium in size, leaves lice looking fine lace.

On the nose I get coriander, yeast and mild malt notes.

More coriander, lime, lite pepper and herbal hops. Quite pleasing and well put together BIPA. Love the style and this a drinkable and worthy take on it. Went great with the calamari salad, picked up the citrus notes of the vinaigrette nicely. Def. a keeper, it would be great if they canned this one as well

On tap at Cannibal in NYC; pours cloudy gold orange with a thick 1 finger white head that faded slowly and left good lacing. Smells and tastes of yeast, citrus, lemon zest, malt/grains and spices like pepper and coriander; nice Belgian notes in this pale ale with a soft floral presence at the end and just enough funk to make it fit the style quite well. Flavor was more complex than the nose with some clove and citrus hops coming out more, and it went down as easy as a pale ale – nice fresh hop and fruit profile from these draft pours. Mouthfeel was medium with mild carbonation, a smooth feel and fine drinkability. I had 2 and they went down very easy. Not the most detailed review as I was out to dinner with friends and didn’t want to be a rude tech geek typing notes, but everyone who tried this beer enjoyed it and overall this was a very good beer which I hope to find in bottle or can since the brewery is local and making good stuff.

From 07/30/13 notes. Had tihs on tap at Mug's Alehouse in Brooklyn. Served in a pint glass.

a - Pours a deep orange-brown color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of rye, Belgian style yeast, spices, light citrus hops, oranges, fruity malts, and earthy notes. Nice nose, some citrus and Belgian yeast, with a good amount of spice as well. Definitely a Belgian influence on it.

t - Tastes of spices, Belgian yeast, pepper, cloves, light citrus, earthy notes, musty, pale malts, wheat, and grains. More spice and pepper, and less fruit and citrus than the nose. A big step down.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall I wasn't crazy about this one; I'd put it slightly below their normal pale ale, which I am also not crazy about, and way behind their rye and black pale ales. Probably wouldn't seek this one out.

This is another well made pale ale made by Bronx Brewery.

It's a very crisp beer with lots of grapefruit and a substantial breadiness to balance the beer out. Then there's almost a funky, fruit ester that comes from the Belgian yeast.

I prefer the regular version, but the Belgian yeast does an interesting thing to the beer.

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane. Big and yeasty, peach-fruit colour. Drinkable though not complex pale ( a touch of citrus) it meets the style. A tad boozy. Would like fruitiness/fruit esters. Introduction to this new brewery and not a bad one with this as an intro.
