Unique and tasty. Orange and little head but much lace. Full mouthfeel of malt and yeast. Cloves driven but other spices noticed in the nose. Above average carbonation. Satisfying.A beer discovery. having a great lakes beer at the Rhino, a few brewers and owners there. ken taps me on the shoulder, asks me what i am drinking and what I think. Other people talk to me. Back to Ken and he asks what i think of this particular beer, if I have had it. Tells me its on for sure now little batch at Bryden's. He himself never had it.

Project X bottle poured in to Great Lakes snifter.

A - Pale straw yellow; translucent. A few scattered white bubbles across the top of the beer.

S - Light banana and yeasty aromas up front. Some citrus and peach with a touch of cloves in the background.

T - A dry bitterness up front that is fairly pungent. Citrus, clove, herbal, tropical fruit and peach flavours are present with no one flavour really coming to the forefront. The malt bill adds some bready flavours and a touch of sweetness. Alcohol is warming and at times a little too noticeable.

M - Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation.

O - Tasted like a tripel to me.

Bottle from Pino, 650ml Project X bomber into a tulip. Enjoyed on July 15, reviewed from notes. 7.9% ABV with 60 IBUs.

Poured an opaque milky orange, with a lighter golden tinge to it. Offwhite head. Nose is hopped quite nicely, pineapple, melon and tangerine; an assortment of citrus and tropical notes. Light pine notes and Belgian yeast. Taste is an extension of the nose, similar in hop profile - peach, pineapple, passionfruit and some tangerine. Sweet malts and alcohol that creeps in at the end, that allows this to be pleasantly warming. Moderate bitterness, easy to put back and some solid work overall. A very enjoyable juicy, hoppy American (Canadian?)-Belgian IPA. Make this again!

Bottle into tulip. Tag marked as 9.5% and 55IBU.

A- Hazy orange pour with a finger width snow white creamy head. Lacing is moderate.

S- Fragrant tropical fruits; Melon, strawberry, pineapple, mango and coconut? Grapefruit, slight pine with a nice spicy yeast backing.

T- Tropical fruits; peaches, mango and pineapple. Spicy yeast and a nice pine/floral hop backing. Makes my cheeks tingle a little.

M- Medium body, lighter carbonation, slight alcohol warmth.

O- Excellent beer, I'm really starting to think that the Project X series is just masterpiece after masterpiece from Great Lakes.

Bottle from brewery. Great Lakes/Black Oak colaboration

Deep hazy orange colour, minimal white head, some lace left behind. Smell is spicy, yeasty, citrus, melon and mango, floaral and at point vanilla is present as well. Taste is quite floral at first, spicy, vanilla almost tastes like oak at times, bitterness comes out in the finish, dry, touches of alcohol, whisps of yeast and green apple in aftertaste. Medium body, medium carbonation. Very good stuff that drinks nicely especially as it got warm.
