I seem to be going against the grain here but I really didn't like this beer. I drank it straight from the can, so I'm sure that didn't help (although I thought the Eugene porter from Revolution held up pretty well in a can, but this beer is more delicate I suppose). It tasted very thin and highly carbonated, with a sweet/sour kick (I guess that's the fruity elements and the funky elements). Would not buy again.

good looking beer, golden color w/nice white head and lacing. nose is funky and lemony w some dank fruityhops underneath. taste is quite sour-perhaps if i was expecting this i could have scored it higher? is this an awa? puckering lemon leads to an aspirin like light bodied mouthfeel.

I love Belgians and I like pale ales, but this beer isn't really a great specimen of either. Probably refreshing during the summer, but not the best fit for this cold February day.

Belgian style? There is nothing belgian style about this beer. It is much darker than any true BPA would be, the head is weaker than a unic's sex drive, and there is no hint at all of the floral notes and effervescence associated with belgian ales and yeast. With that being said, this is a decent AMERICAN style pale ale. It is completely drinkable, with complex and balanced hop character that everyone is used to by now with the ridiculous amount of APAs out there brewed by craft breweries in the US.

Sharp Hoppy notes combined with 3 different hops make this a fine Belgian IPA

Pours a transparent copper color with a fluffy white head. It lacks that belgian haze that I was expecting it to have.

Smells extremely hoppy. Piney, citrusy hops dominate the aroma.

The flavor is the same as the smell, just milder. It's hoppy, but not the palate thrasher the smell led me to believe it would be.

Mouthfeel is average. Drinkability very good. Overall, it's a good tasting beer, but there are hundreds of other pale ales and IPAs that are just as good or better. The thing that is really dinging it's score for me here is it's lack of anything in it's smell, color, or flavor, that makes it a belgian pale instead of an american pale ale.

Pours a clean yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, small hops but watery. In the taste, dry hops, a yeasty presence, and just a touch fruity. A nice hop bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer mellow hop and yeast presence in the aftertaste. A bit thin, nice hops, and a small yeasty fruit presence.

Pour is bright amber orange with a tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of resin hop up front, light yeast notes with a fair bit of spice and tang. A good bit of sweet juicy citrus and faint grassy hop in the back. Taste is a bit sweet, light tangy yeast with a hint of spice, loads of pine and resin with a touch of citrus and some grassy bitterness through the finish but light. Body is syrupy and full, softer carbonation.

Disappointed in this. A very light, watery taste to this. I love this brewery, but this beer was a bit disappointing.
