On tap at Little Bear in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a slightly murky honey orange-tan with an off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, yeast, spice, and some hop aromas. Taste is much the same with an alcohol kick on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice hoppy presence.

The beer pours a hazy straw color with a white head. The aroma has a bit of wheat, as well as some grass and orange citrus notes. The flavor is very similar. There is a good bit of toffee and wheat, as well as some grass and citrus in the flavor. The bitterness is fairly low, but the spiciness and yeast-like character is quite high. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice beer.

A: half finger head on a cloudy pale straw colored body.

S: full aroma with lemon custard, corriander, tropical fruit and yeast. All Belgian in the aroma.

T: opens with lemon tartness moving to yeast and grains finishing with sweet banana and both earthy and herbal hops.

M: light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: very drinkable. Nice balance and degree of sweetness. The hops are light but the beer is nicely done otherwise.

Happppy to get this delightful beer
Yellowish orange with sticky lacing and a head that remains around the outter rim the whole way down. Smells of hop and fruit, kinda like dried banana smells but good. Tastes of banana and hops with great balance. The mouth feel is one of best I ever had especially being a Belgian...liking mostly American ales!! Goes down so smooth I'll have another for sure!! Love it

Big white to off white head settles into a bisquity pillow in the middle of the glass above a pale washout golden honey colored beer that is peppered with sediment that seems to be suspended throughout the entire glass.

Aroma is well blended citrus fruits, floral notes, yeast, and light grains.

The taste is light citrus fruits, some light pine likeness, slight bitter hops mixed into the fray as well as some very light grains.

A medium to slightly less body on this IPA that has a nice almost dry aftertaste.

Although this is a Belgian IPA, I was still hoping for a little more hops bite.

Another pretty good beer with a lot of little things going on, I wish more American brewers beers would evolve into stuff like this, but at the same time not exactly like this, we already have this, just saying.

The liquid in the bottle looked so infested with sediment, but it settled nicely. Darker yellow body with huge foamy white head.

Lots of sour funk accented by citric hops. the orange and lemon hop flavors really work well with the acidic sour notes. I like it.

The taste is all sweet malt at first.I tried to find any sort of flavor, but I get nothing. no funk, no hops, no yeast esters. Nothing, at all. Super powdery sweet, with nothing to accent it. Rather disappointing for what should be (and sounds like) a fantastic beer.
