A: clear amber with HUGE white head that remains.
S: funk with faint hops.
T: huge funk up front that fades to hop bitterness then funk again on the aftertaste.
F: slight resin & lite carbonation.
O: a very interesting beer. The hops & funk go well together.

Poured a clear amber body with one finger of thick, bubbly white head. Quite nice looking, true to style. Scents of pineapple, sweet floral perfume, floral hops, apricot, sugar-cookie sweetness, sweet spices with notes of nutmeg and allspice, light white pepper, medium-light sweetly sour tangerine and a hint of wild barnyard yeast. Overall impression of aroma is of a very unique IPA with the floral hop qualities of Hop Devil mingling with the aromas of both a Belgian Pale and a sour. Very complex and quite enticing. Flavor begins with medium bitterness and notes of citrus zest, floral hops, white pepper, light bubblegum, preserved bitter orange and spicy yeast. Middle is medium in bitterness with notes of orange peel, white pepper, spicy yeast and floral perfume. Finish is dry with notes of bubblegum, white pepper, floral hops, spicy yeast, very light sugar cookie and orange peel. Aftertaste is orange peel, floral hops, white pepper and light bubblegum. Overall impression of flavor is of a very unique IPA that combines flavors of a Belgian IPA with the base Hop Devil. Very nice. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with medium-light carbonation and a slick feel with a drying finish. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a nice IPA and Belgian Pale combined. Overall this is an excellent experiment. The IPA combines nicely with the Belgian elements and creates a pleasant aroma and flavor aided by a nice mouthfeel. Recommended.

Picked up a 750ml bottle in late September from TW Arrowhead for $8.99. Bottled on 6-11-14.

Beer poured amber-orange with a beautiful white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is wet straw and lemon. Caught some green floral hop cone upon the initial pour.

Taste has a kiss of lemon sourness with a bit of lemon peel to finish.

Mouthfeel is light, smooth, and a touch prickly.

Overall I appreciate the light sourness combined into a pretty good base recipe.

Not much funk in my bottle. If anything it had a slight lemon flavor and it was kinda like you had a penny in your mouth too. The hops were nice and it was a smooth drinking ale. I enjoyed it, it just wasn't what I thought it would be.
