3.76/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours shades of orange and ruby with good clarity and two fingers of white head. Spotty lacing surrounds the glass.

S - grapefruit citrusy hops, malts, bread dough and yeasty. Faint brown sugar / malty smell in the background.

T - very hop forward, and blends with some belgian style hops and malt backbone.

O - This is a solid Ameri-Belgo DIPA. I usually don't prefer the belgian style IPA's but this is nice because the robust american style hops take center while the Belgian flavors are secondary.

I was lucky enough to find this at 7 Monks in Traverse City the day after a Short's tap takeover. I normally review and take notes during sampling, but frankly doing this one from memory.

I recall the tulip glass arriving at the table, and I said to my wife "this is exactly what a beer should look like." Slightly cloudy and amber.

Aroma and taste were just perfect in my book. Bright citrus, nice bite at the end but not nearly as sharp as their Liberator.

I am a huge fan of Short's...this is the best of the bunch in my book. Pleeaaase bottle it.

I was too lazy to add this myself, but since it has now been added I will partake.

This was one of the best beer I have had in 2011. I had the privilege to have this twice in the same weekend once at the Brewpub and once at Seven Monks in Traverse City.

This was brewed exclusively brewed with Galaxy hop. They supplied a amazing citrus tropical flavor and nose. I didn't get a ton of "Belgian" flavors but I beg they bottle this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Brewed exclusively with galaxy hops.

A: Pours a cloudy apricot with two quarters of white head.

S: Big citrus hoppiness in the nose.

T: Huge citrusy hop bitterness from start to finish with this.

M: Light body with good carbonation.

O: Not my favorite. To much hop bitterness for me.
