Pours a hazy, dark amber, with a one finger head that doesn't leave much lacing. Good retention though. Smells of mango, pineapple, something like corn, orange, lemon, pine/resin and toasted bread. A little bit of alcohol. Taste is a bit spicy and bitter, with citrus and orange dominating. There's also some toasted bread/biscuit in there, and the whole thing has a grassy character to it. Some sourness as well. And some butter too? Body is thin with light carbonation, very smooth.

Great stuff.

Hazy orange color with a decent head, which leaves a long staying lacing. Intense Aromas of yeast, lemon, orange and soap, which results in an unusual but pleasant melange. Hop is foremost defined by orange, grass and limes. This ale is definitely on the hoppy side, fantastic bitterness resulting from the floral start, long lasting on the palate. Has a dry, chewy mouthfeel. Warm, yeast orientated beginning, soon gets overpowered by hop freshness, without being too aggressive. Malt stays in the background the whole time, adding a sweeter note the the body, without being distractive from the hops, which are huge in this. The beer gets actually quite bitter in the end, still leaving some space for limes on the tastebuds. Also wheat remains on the palate, which creates, in combination with the hops, a unique popcorn-like flavor.

On tap at Myrphy’s Law. Hazy orange with a tall off-white head. Orange zest, lemon juice, brett, farmhouse funk. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, low carbonation and a herbal bitter aftertaste.

22 ounce bottle, label says best before end JULI2015. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden orange color with about an inch and a half off-white head that stayed around for a very long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (tropical fruit, grapefruit, citrus peel) hops, and also some bready malt and floral/herbalness. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some peppery spice, peaches, Belgian yeast and some hay/straw. The bitterness really kicks in after a while, it has a nice bitter and fruity overall flavor. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's coating and a bit creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, it's definitely worth picking up! $13.99 a bottle.

Yellow, cloudy.
Head white, large.
Intensely fruity aroma, mainly peach, passion fruit, mango, there is also a little carrot, honey and a bit dusty grass.
Taste brilliant. Again, fruits, but this time even more intense. Mango with his carrot sweetness, later passion fruit with his citrus acidity, honey, this time more gently, and at the end of bitterness, dry, grassy, ​​dusty. In Extase we have 8.5% alcohol, which is pretty good. To sum up, a very tasty beer, consistent aroma and flavor, with a strong bitterness, intense. Yes ... it was ecstasy.

22.4 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/2015. Pours hazy bright orange color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, peppercorn, light caramel, bread, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, peppercorn, light caramel, bread, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spice and pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate malt flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, sticky, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome Belgian DIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of big citrus/pine hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the the ABV. Very big on bright hop flavors with supporting malt and yeast notes all around. A highly enjoyable offering.

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface, a thick collar, and lots of lacing coating the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of floral, herbal, and citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of caramel malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out with flavors of herbal and citrusy hops, which contributes a moderate amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish along with notes of Belgian yeast and some hints of grapefruit hops and caramel malts. The citrus flavors and bitterness in the finish become stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has lots of complexities in the smell and taste and has a lot of interplay between the hops, yeast, and malts. It's also rather drinkable as any traces of alcohol are well hidden from the taste.
