look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Aftertaste shows a well-rounded flavour of a lot of hops, some light malt and a good deal of the belgian yeast strain. Overall, a well-balanced beer that hits the right notes,

It has cloudy orange/brown color. Smells like citrus and a little soapy. It doesn't taste much bitter than other hoppy, with citrus aroma. The aftertaste is earthy and refreshing.

The color was extremely reminiscent of a pumpkin orange/amber. The smell and taste is both citrus and apple-like, as well as some hoppy with pine or earthy aftertaste.

This has a cloudy golden brown/orange look to it. The smell and taste is like orange citrus but also has a sour/bitter taste. Overall, its a bit too bitter for my taste, so it's not one I would not seek out.

Pours a hazy golden brown color with a lace of head. Aromas are mild, but are crisp. Belgian yeast is quite prominent and hops are not over powering. Overall a very good Belgian IPA. You can definitely tell it's taken from the American IPA.

Poured into a Wicked Weed snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a reddish dark amber color with a 3/4 inch light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves large clots behind.

S- Kind of a soapy aroma and not much else...

T- Sweet crystal malt with some minimal hop flavor. Also not much Belgian yeast character. Mild bitterness.

M- Slightly sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Pretty easy to drink but unimpressive.
