3.91/5 rDev -2.7%
best by 11-1-15. 22 oz bottle.
pours with plenty of carb. big time head and retention. color is good. still has a slight haze and an orange body. aroma has really calmed down with time. a little bit of oxidation, but really not that off-putting. however, hop aroma is highly diminished. still getting some of that booze as time hasn't eliminated all that yet. again, any hoppiness is virtually eliminated and this now drinks like a big belgian tripel with some time on it. finish is still very dry. getting a mild metallic flavor as well.
original review from 5-2-11. best before date not indicated.
A: maybe a slight haze on this orange body. good looking white head looks thick and has great retention. loads of carbonation can be seen as well.
S: a real breadiness from the yeast can be detected. similar to fresh baked banana bread. the citrus/earth is evident as well and plays nicely with the above described aromas.
T: this is a biggie. banana working with a nice black pepper spice. a little bit of alcohol (not entirely ridiculous considering the 9.2% nametag). a smooth vanilla. hop flavors are present as well, but are more of the earth variety.
M: pretty soft carbonation on this big body lets a lot of flavor shine through.
D: really cool beer. definitely closer to the tripel side than the IPA side, but nice showing by both aspects of the brew.

3.83/5 rDev -4.7%
Pours a deep copper color. Hazy as well. The head on this beer is very thick and fluffy, good lacing and amazing head retention.
Not much smell here. Some citrus mixed with some sweet, yeasty, maltiness expected from a belgian.
Taste is malt forward at first, but mellows into a nice hop bitterness that lingers on the finish. Some bread, biscuit flavors as well.
Mouthfeel is crisp for a belgian, but creamy for an IPA. Good middle ground. Easily drinkable.
Good beer and this is quickly becoming one of my favorite styles.
