Review from notes. Thanks to my brother for a bottle.

A: Pours a clear golden/orange color with a one finger foamy head on top. Decent retention and thin lacing around most of the glass.

S: Don't get much in the way of Belgian spices/yeast, mostly pine and some citrus fruit.

T: Again, don't get very much in the way of a Belgian presence. Nice piney flavor though with some light citrus mixed in.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Abv comes through a little bit as it warms.

O: Had you told me it was a regular IPA, score probably would be a bit higher. I liked it, but did not love it.

10 oz tap poured at Stout's Pub in Minnesota.

A: Perfectly clear golden in color. 1 finger dense foam head. Leaves amazing lace.

S: Ammonia-like hop aroma. Vegetative.

T: Medicinal like quality sits over clean sweet malt. Hops bitter but play second fiddle to yeast qualities. Very interesting. Unique.

M: Well carbonated. Rather thin with a slight lingering oiliness.

D: Worth trying a few times. After a couple, it can be a bit much. The antiseptic qualities multiply.

S - Clove, sweet malt, mild citrus.

T - Starts out with some slightly sweet malt followed by a drying citrusy hop flavor with some clove and slight banana as well.

M - Medium with lots of carbonation.

O - Enjoyable belgian style. Have not had this sty in quite some time. Nice dry finish.

Pretty goldish orange color, clear, and topped with a nice looking bubbly, slick white head. Aroma is full of tart and sweet fruit over a solid malty base. Candy pineapples, orange, zesty spices, mint, and something along the lines of fresh soap. Taste is just the right kind of sweet, embedded in a plethora of flavory goodness with a bright, smooth bitter hop tingle. There's a nice candied fruit variety, both tropical fruits and sweet citrus. Chewy caramel and bready malts are all over too. A very nice combo of all sorts of things. I would certainly have this again. Mouthfeel is slick, syrupy, smooth, and chewy. A tad resiny too. The body is medium-full, but on the full side. This is also quite easy to drink. Lots of tasty things going on, and the abv isn't slowing me down one bit.
