I picked up a bomber of this at Yankee Spirits in Surbridge MA.

Appearance is a nice golden tone with two fingers of bright white head. Its` nose contains citrus hops, pine and flora. Taking a sip confirmed my suspicions that this is a fine beer, sweet from orange and other citrus components with more hops and pine. Mouthfeel is medium, good carbonation level and a lingering, pleasant bitterness to the finish. For those who appreciate a nice BIPA, be sure to pick this one up, it does not disappoint.

Very clear beer, thin white head. Solid carbonation going. Clearly bottle condition, the later sample is quite cloudy. An orange hued straw color. Head won't hold for very long, but does lace the glass with rings. Smells resinous with hops- piney citrus musky aroma, mixed with a clean spicey Belgian yeast character (Duvel-esk). Really interesting flavors > Very strong but not scorching bitterness (yeast sample was super bitter). Tastes a bit like Northern Brewer Hops. Followed by intense piney/spicy/citrus hop flavors. Very mild maltiness to the beer, slight grainy aftertaste. The tail end of the sip is a delicious and clean Belgian yeast flavor. I've had some Belgian IPAs where the Belgian yeast really clashes with intense hops flavors. These flavor are mending and bending quite nicely. Decent ABV. Medium body. Really unique and delicious, and a very challenging style of beer.

CBC is a great place to go in Cambridge MA. heads up to all.

Picked this up on a recent trip to Boston. So glad I did!

A: Hazy dark golden color with a one finger cream colored head that leaves some clingy lacing down the glass.

S: Slightly musty piny hop notes and a touch of Belgian yeast.

T: This is pretty delicious. I was a little worried about the hoppiness fading because this bottle is dated December 2011, but it seems to be intact still. Opens with a lot of pine and citrusy hops, grapefruit pith, a touch of belgian yeast and crushed black pepper. Finish is dry and pretty bitter, but leaves you wanting a lot more. The alcohol is really, really well hidden. Super drinkable and super delicious. Wish we could get this in California.

22 oz bottle was poured into a large Omer tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange color with vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: vanilla, spices, tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, bubble gum, bready, and caramel malts.

Taste: This beer is delicious. Same as above with tingly bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, a little dry, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and tingly bitterness.

Overall: Pretty solid BIPA. I could drink several of these right now. Will look for more in the future.

Cambridge Brewing Co – Audacity of Hops – Belgian IPA

Bottled 8/2/13, consumed 9/27/13, 8% ABV, 22 oz. bomber to tall tulip

Cloudy light orange. 1.5 fingers of off white head with large bubbles.

Smell is buttery, sweet tropical fruit, some pine and a bit yeasty.

Hops and yeast battle for the top billing. Hops win out slightly by virtue of bitterness. Grapefruit, lemon, spice, some barnyard must, grassy herbs. Tons of flavors popping up on this one. No real sign of the ABV. Bitterness expands when this one hits the back of the tongue. There is a large hop presence but it seems to come in layers. Takes some time to find all of it. Mouthfeel is pretty wet. Not quite thick but definitely full bodied. Rather sticky on the lips. The aftertaste is lingering bitterness, hop resin, some more yeast, and pith. There is a buttery flavor that flashes here and there, sometimes rather noticeably, but it doesn’t feel like a problem to me. There are some hints of the peppery component you’d find in other Belgian pale ales. I’m really enjoying the complex combinations that are presenting themselves. I should not have gone so long between bottles of this one.

This falls right in my wheelhouse with the marriage of IPA and Belgian flavors. I thought it was damn good. I’d have to say that Audacity is to Belgian/white IPAs what Stone SSR is to black IPAs for me. It pushes out the limits of what I thought the style could hold and sets a high mark for others to beat.

22oz bomber purchased at the Hunger Mountain Coop in Montpelier VT for $8.99 this past weekend.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy honey soaked copper with a 1 finger white crown that shows moderate retention and some lace.

Smell: Lots of pepper, some other soft belgian ester, light grapefruit and lemon citrus notes, and a moderately bready malt.

Taste: Same as the nose but with a firm hop bitterness that meshes very well with the belgian yeast character.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium to moderate carbonation.

Overall: This is a tasty take on a DIPA that I would probably drink regularly on draft if it was available at my local pub. Not something I would put much of an effort into trading for though.

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

A: A cloudy light copper pour with a huge billowy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Very interesting. Smells a lot like your typical big IPA. Lots of pine and a touch of citrus (orange?). Maybe a hint of banana in the background?

T: Whoa. Up front it's a big, smooth sweet juicy citrus hit (orange, mango primarily) with just a hint of pine in the background. Then as the citrus fades about halfway through, the pine stays and results in a big bitter pine resin hit. Very long lasting bitterness. Maybe a little pepper in with the pine in the aftertaste. No real evidence of typical belgian yeast that I can discern which is interesting.

M: Medium body, carbonation is fairly high. Big pine resin bite results in quite a drying tingle in the aftertaste.

O: Very interesting Belgian IPA. It's about 90% an american DIPA to be honest. If someone had handed me a glass of it at random, I probably never would have guessed it was anything but a normal DIPA. Doesn't mean it's bad, in fact it's quite good. It's just a very americanized version of the style.

Clear, dark yellow with a fizzy greyish head that fades fast. If I didn't know better this could be Colt 45 by appearance alone. Nice floral hops and Belgian spice in the nose. This beer tastes much better than it looks, big resinous hops and dry spicy Belgian yeast in perfect harmony. Full bodied with seltzery carbonation. One of the better "Belgian" IPAs that I've had. Well balanced between the hop bitterness and spice.

Batch 1
Poured in to my Portsmouth tulip

A: This beer pours a hazy, deep straw yellow color with a one finger of bone white, rich foamy head. Head retains nicely leaving ringlets of sticky lacing on the glass.

S: Nose is all hops! Big citrus, grapefruit and lemon notes. Some grassiness. For a belgian IPA, the spicing is muted - really plays an under current tone and works well for this beer.

T: Taste starts with a good deal of lemon, slight wheat, and then pale malts come through. Middle is mingled wheat and spicing - very very muted so that it compliments and not dominates the flavor. Big, big grapefruit notes come in during the finish with a hint of grass to cut the grapefruit bitterness.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation, oily and slick body.

O: Goes down easy, VERY tasty, not too filling, well hidden kick, good representation of style. This is a belgian IPA that I could sit with for a night!

This poured out as a golden yellow color with a white head on top. The retention of the is thin but holds up well. The lacing is sticky, leaving some foam on the glass. The smell of the beer is floral, some fruity citrus notes. The taste is piney, some lemony citrus in there as well with a resin-like finish. There is a very subtle breadiness in there also. The mouthfeel has a good amount of carbonation with a lighter body. Overall this beer is pretty good.

The Audacity of Hops opens to a bright burst of citrusy hops, pink grapefruit, grapefruit rind, pine resin, and lemon oil resounding, with lesser notes of dandelion stem, mint, and anise. While the hop aromas are very strong, the 70+ IBUs immediately apparent, there’s also a large Belgian presence that lies just beneath, with bananas and cloves mixing very nicely with the citrusy, fruity, spicy hops. The balance here is very nice, the Belgian and hop notes mingling generatively, whereas in many Belgian IPAs they end up clashing fiercely. These fruity notes are bolstered by heavy orange, berry, cherry, and apricot fruit esters, and the beer is somewhat grounded by an undercurrent of light toast crust, biscuit, and Grape Nuts cereal. As a whole, this is one of the more balanced, potent, and aromatic Belgian IPAs on the market, and while the beer does swing more in favor of IPA than Belgian, there is still enough of the latter aroma to make itself known.

On the tongue, the beer opens with an initial heavy shock of hops, with grapefruit rind, pine resin, eucalyptus, dandelion stem, mint, and anise sweeping across the tastebuds in bitter fury. Against this onslaught, it’s actually difficult to detect the Belgian flavors, the bananas and cloves largely subsumed, as are most of the fruity notes. There’s still a dollop or two of them, however, adding not only banana, but also orange, berry, and cherry. Toast crust, biscuit, and wet wheat add small bits of earthy grounding. The aftertaste is heavily hopped, being largely a continuation of the main mouthful, and lingers on the tongue in bitter remnants for a long time. Mouthfeel is medium, and carbonation is medium.

Overall, this is good beer, and hopheads should certainly seek out a bottle, as the hops are potent and varied, showcasing a powerful array of hoppy goodness. However, the Belgian part of the beer is largely lost because of the potency of the hops, and seems imbalanced because of it. Had this simply been labeled a “Double India Pale Ale,” rather than a “Belgian Style Double India Pale Ale,” there wouldn’t have been such a problem; as it is, the fruity, spicy bananas and cloves seem almost an afterthought. This is not to say that the beer is bad—in fact, it’s very delicious, though likely far too hoppy for the novice—just that it seems mislabeled.

Well-executed across the boards - pours golden with a faint haze, a few fingers of fizzy foam on top. Orchard-like aromas of flowers and citrus fruits, subtler impressions of lightly sweet caramel malt grains. Taste reveals a distinct Belgian approach - yeasty tingle and tang ride a clean malt bill... Hops assert over time, bringing the Belgian-like qualities into their fold. Medium on the tongue, ample carbonation - soft and citrusy elements wash over the tongue. Quality drinking. Bridges the pale Belgian and American Imperials nicely.

The Audacity of Hops
22 oz. brown bottle
Served in a 20 oz. tulip glass

Pours a hazy and cloudy orange color. A nice head forms on top leaving spotty patterns of sticky lacings.

A very pleasant nose with whiffs of citrus (think orange & limes) and baked bread.

Toasted caramel malt backbone with a sweet syrup flavor underneath. Very “bright” tasting with a really nice hop profile with hints of oranges, herbs and a touch of pine. The Belgian yeast is noticeable, but doesn’t overpower this beer. I detect a touch of spice, perhaps black pepper. The 8% is very well hidden too.

This is a real nice change up to the usual double IPA. The Audacity of Hops
is an interesting and enjoyable local beer.

Bottled May 29, 2013

Beer is cloudy orange with a large white head. Terrific retention and lacing- head lasts forever and just coats the glass.

Nose contains Belgian yeast, lots of floral notes. I get banana as well as tropical and citrus fruit, including orange and passionfruit.

Belgian yeast strikes in the taste, with orange and bubblegum. A bit of coriander. Citrus and tropical fruits. Moderately bitter.

Full bodied, moderately carbonated. A bit bready. Slightly oily.

Overall, quite good. A nice Belgian IPA but not one of the best.

On Tap at the brewery on 10-15-13

A - Pours a hazed gold color one finger of white head with some thin lacing
S - Big grape and orange juice, some dank pine, a touch of spice, some dank pine
T - Lots of grape and orange juice sweet mango, some caramel malt, definitely some alcohol, very sweet and ripe tropical flavors
M - Big cloying sweetness, big big feel, some alcohol burn.
O - Very good IPA, I dont see where the belgian part comes into play, but I did get a bomber, I'll re review later

Updated: 12-14-13 from Bomber

The aroma is STELLAR, lots of grape, some mango.
Taste has a lot more belgian punch that from my notes at the brewery, but is still good.
Mouthfeel is still lacking, you do get a strong spicy bitterness, and its kinda dry.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip. Poured a beautiful hazy orange with a two finger head that quickly receded and left some nice uneven lacing and a few splotches of foam on the surface and a ring around the edge.

The smell is pretty straightforward- the citrusy aromas of Cascade hops dominate the nose. Nothing complicated but pleasant.

The taste is much like the smell- nothing complicated but pleasant. Tastes more like an American IPA than a belgian one- I'm missing the yeastiness.

Mouthfeel is very nice- an oily texture thanks to the hops and a light body coupled with medium carbonation makes for a refreshing brew.

This is definitely a solid IPA but perhaps not worth what I paid for out of the bottle. I'm sure at the brewery it's great.

Bottled on 5/29/2015: Pours cloudy bright orange color with a 2 finger foamy bright white head that was full of tiny bubbles and faded very slowly, leaving good spotty lacing with rings as it went down, and a layer on top that looked like a photo from outer space of hurricane clouds swirling in a white foamy circle layer on top of the brew. The head from the second half of the bottle was huge, 3 fingers plus and faded very slowly.

Smells of fresh hops up front with piney hops and grapefruit hitting the nose first, followed by floral hops and flower notes, lemon zest, tropical fruit, yeast that's a little funky, spices like pepper, rye and cinnamon, wet cardboard, grains and some wet animal hair. Very nice nose that combines the Belgian notes and strong DIPA hops to give the final product the best of both worlds at the same time. Just enough malt sweetness to balance the hops.

Tastes like it smells but with more malt as the foundation wit Ritz cracker, light caramel and wheat bread mixing in with the piney hops, lemon, grapefruit, green apple, funk, spices including pepper, rye, coriander and cinnamon, chalky yeast, wet cardboard, toasted grains and mild barnyard/earthy notes. The sweetness negated the bitterness and let the fruit, malt and spices make for a complex brew that makes the most of the hops and showcases nice floral and citrus hop flavors and spices. Gets better as it warms, hiding the ABV pretty well the whole time. It ends like strong rye flavors but the overall spiciness is only mid-level and quite enjoyable, making it easy to drink.

Mouthfeel is smooth and almost buttery, with mild carbonation, a medium to almost chewy body and a slightly bitter aftertaste that is mildly spicy which then fades almost clean and dry. A really fine beer.

Presentation: Bomber bottle from Batch One, bottled this month so less than three months old. Poured into a Boston Beer pint glass.

Appearance: Pale straw yellow in color with a fluffy white head. Nice and clear throughout.

Aroma: Brutal onslaughter of pine and citrus hops. This is definitely a nicely dry hopped brew. I might be missing it, but I am not getting much in the way of Belgian yeast although the hops might be why.

Taste: The hops are just are upfront here as the aroma. Really bitter overall, but nice tones of pine, grapefruit and mango throughout. The slightest touch of clove. Great hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Light and amply carbonated. Right on.

Overall, an excellent IPA with just an insane amount of bitterness. The Belgian yeast was a non factor for me. Just a really nice, bitter IPA.

Info: Batch #1, bottled Dec. 2011

A: Poured from a 22oz. bomber bottle into a pint glass. Hazy, straw-colored yellow, with a tan center, 2-finger, fluffy white head, and some lacing. Pretty to look at.

S: A great balance of hops, yeast, and malt. Front smell is a spicy Belgian yeast, with a bright hop middle and a light banana spice finish. Fragrant like a flower: delicate but complex, and very inviting.

T: Dry, with a touch of spiciness and bread. Bright hop notes on the tongue with some yeasty malts through the middle and a bone-dry aftertaste. Flavors of grass, coriander, rye bread, pine needles, pale malt notes on the back of the tongue. Flavorful, but light, with only occasional hints at it's alcoholic potency, this beer is quite a delight to drink on a hot day.

M: Chewy and grainy in the mouth with a bone dry bite to it. It has a lighter feel than most DIPAs, most likely due to the Belgian influence, so it's nice for hop heads looking for a lighter side of things.

O: A great-tasting beer, that doesn't try to do too much. Easy-going, light and fluffy, but with some great flavors and interesting feel, I would recommend it to those seeking a summertime DIPA. Nice effort, and good product.

From 09/16/14 notes. Had at the brewpub, been wanting to try this for a while.

Pours a hazy bright orange-amber color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident. Citrus hops, fresh tropical fruits, juicy, fruity malts, oranges, and floral hops. Taste is lightly bitter but bad at all. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall one of their best beers IMO; well worth seeking out.

On-tap 10/17/2014 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a stange glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus, Belgian yeast and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of piney hops bitterness. Then some sweet flavors of caramel and citrus come in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a nice beer to drink for a long time.

22oz Bomber from CBC.

Had this one on tap and well and brought some bottles back home to Jersey.

A: Pours clear golden yellow with pearly white head, lacing wasn't great but head stays nicely

S: Spicy, like Belgian IPA, followed by hops, like DIPA, smells nice

T: A bit discordant. Starts with spice and bit of grapefruit and belgian yeast, then follows with a bit of juicy fruits succeeded by the bitter hop bite. Almost tastes like two different beers in a sense.

M: Smooth and creamy. Slight bite

O: Had this one fresh then had it again about two weeks later. The hops died down a bit but the finish was smoother. I think this is a really good beer. The fresher bottle I had I think was complex but the two styles didn't really meld IMO. The older bottle was probably more of a Belgian IPA as opposed to Belgian DIPA.

Definitely A for effort, and I would definitely get this one again.

22 oz bottle into a couple of tulip glasses.

Pours a clear golden copper, with a sudsy head of bright-white foam. This maintains a rich ½ finger sized flare-up when swirled, which dots the sides of the glass with sticky lace. The aroma smells fresh, leafy, spicy, and citric, with notes of bread and bubblegum working themselves in here as well. Underlying warmth adds a touch of fullness to the nose.

The taste is fresh bitter citrus and pine, which gives this some bite, while pale malt sweetness helps balance this across the back. Bubblegum, soft fruit, and herbal textures cling to those malt flavors a bit, while that combo of hops and yeast finish this dry with notes of pith, resins, and spice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slick and smooth feeling to the carbonation that has just enough of a prickle to it to bring out some crispness in the body. There is a good bit of slickness to this which keeps that 8% ABV going down VERY easily.

This was a well done take on a Belgian IPA, with a complex yet balanced profile that kept this smooth and flavorful on the palate despite the occasional assertiveness of the hops. Watch out for this, it's dangerously drinkable for the size.

Served from the bottle and poured into a tulip glass. A little old, bottled May 29th 2013.

A dull orange and opaque body, with a good glowing tangerine colored edges. Frothy large white head with good clumping and retention. Grows large off the pour nice and even with a creamy appearance and whipped up top.

Nose has some slight candi sweetnees, but a good hop bitter that dominates and is subtle. Perhaps somewhat faded, but quite chewy leafy and almost minty smelling with a little floral kick.

Palate comes with a large hop bitterness. Minty washing front, with sharp finish on the swallow that lingers on and on. Get out the toothbrush it's warm and minty hot. Chewy palate with a very subdued and hammered down Belgian sweetness. THe heat almost translates into a bretty quality which it's not, but it's a very similar sensation. A little light bodied, but the lack of chewy malt depth provides an easy drinking beer on what could be overly hot.

Real nice take on a Belgian IPA and a large hop presence. Enjoyed my first CBC brew.
