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

Appearance is gold and clear with generous white head and tons of spotty lacing. Nose is full of spicy Belgian yeast with mellow hop character. Faint caramel in the back and plenty of Belgian yeast and a little bit of sweetness on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium body with mild carbonation. Overall, nice balance, worth a try.

Pours a hazy yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, dry yeast and notes of green apples. In the taste, earthy, hoppy, a touch funky, and a dry green apple sweetness. A spice like bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry spice and earthy hop in the aftertaste. Hides the 10%, a mellow hop presence, but a bit saison like.

4.38/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Like a champagne, the pour produced a giant sudsy head at least 4 fingers, white and foamy. The colour speaks to the excellence waiting - a pure hazy golden with multiple streams of champagne bubbles.

S: Sweet bready and yeast mixed with tropical fruit, lycee and mango with notes of pine wood. The scent leaves you thinking of fresh oysters - mineral and fresh ocean waters.

T: Smooth and creamy without a hint of alcohol considering the 10%. Hops are present but are smooth and mild, not sharp and acrid. Notes of tropical fruit - banana, lycée and mango with a clean mineral chaser and leaves the palate with a mild hoppy bitters.

M: Starts out a little thin, less bold in the mouth that I was hoping for. Carbonation is medium, but because of the champagne style, I expected a strong carbonation. That said if I consider it an IPA, the mouth feel is as expected.

O: The taste and scent is unparalled. The Lupulus manages to combine the best of a Saison, triple and IPA and takes the best of those styles and mingles them. The cost of this brew out on the west coast was rather high, but that doesn't compromise the overall enjoyability.

4.33/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: usual overflowing head from Charlevoix, sticky lace; pure gold hue with chill haze

Aroma: apple; citrus hops balanced by spice; light butter scent and some acidity; a little reminiscent of weisse aroma

Taste & Mouthfeel: surprisingly light and utterly smooth; starts with the complex yeasty profile of a tripel, and finishes with spicy hop bitterness leading the way; coriander; difficult to identify individual flavours - great blend of spice, bitterness, tart, sweetness and a perfect medium body and carbonation; apple

Overall: no problem finishing the bottle, dangerously easy drinking for a 10% beer, and never gets boring

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

A dark straw, brass colored brew, a high warm off-white head, compact, good lacing and good curtains.

Smelling of fruits, apples, honey, pine apples and sweet licorice.

Sweet wheat bread, fruits, spices and strong dessert vinous notes.

Medium carbonation, smooth, oily and slightly sticky, a big body and light dry finish.

Quality, very good after dinner!

Been waiting to try this for a long time. Thanks so much for sending this my way Sean!

The beer is hazy and appears radiant orange in color. The head stands nearly two inches tall with a whipped meringue cap. Everlasting retention and ample lacing caked on the goblet.

The aroma brings citrus, yeast, grass, floral hops, orange zest.

Delicious, smooth, full flavored and easy to drink. Plenty of hop character. A nice lingering bitterness in the finish with some lasting citrus flavors.

Medium bodied with ample carbonation. Hard to believe this is 10% abv. Alcohol is hidden extremely well.

Overall, an outstanding example of a Belgian IPA. Definitely one of the best in style.
