Pours a murky orange with plenty of floaties and a thick head.

The smell is bitter and resiny, with a bit of pine and citrus.

Quite resiny on the tongue as well, but balanced by a nice breadiness. Nice bitterness, and a slightly soapy aftertaste.

Nice and soft, medium bodied. Just the right level of carbonation.

Overall, a good, solid west Coast IPA, that is drawn down a little because of it's look.

Nice complex IPA. Great cloudy color, smooth easy to drink flavor. Couldn't find a "brewed on" date on the bomber, but mine was a bit chunky with yeast/hops floating and settling within. I liked it.

Orange pour, mild, thin head over half an inch. Aroma was deficient in hops. Some bitterness.

Taste, really just a one trick bitter pony. Lots of caramel and chrystal malt. C hops, british yeast flavors.

Cloudy, orange yellow color, with a decent white head. Citraic, grassy hops, defined by lime and orange - floral nose, refreshing. Citrus, lime and grapefruit. Refreshing, dry bitterness, supported by subtle hints of bready malts. High carbonation fits well to the straight and honest character of the beer. Dry bitterness is present from the beginning till the end. Hops are defined by citrus, working well with the present bitterness. Easy drinkable with a decent, gritty complexity, while being very refreshing.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a orange to yellow color with a one finger creamy white head. Lacing was few and far between.
The smell started off with sweet fruit, light florally sweet notes.
The taste was sweet again through the previously mentioned flavors. Light caramel and bready tones enter in decently.
The mouthfeel, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it.
Carbonation feels right for an IPA but the bitterness seems pretty tame.
Overall, not bad for the most part, but I'm wondering where the bitterness is. Did I get an old bottle? I'll try again if I can find fresh, but I have a feeling, this one was old.

Dark gold color with a bit of cloudiness. Small head but decent blanketing lace on the glass.

Crystal malt aroma with a floral hop touch. I think I smell some alcohol as well.

The flavor is more bitter than the smell suggests. Chewy body with the alcohol providing some thinning. Moderate to below average carbonation. True to the American version with enough bittering hop in the finish. It provides a moderate length aftertaste.

On tap at Trappistenlokaal ’t Klooster. Hazy orange with a white head. Orange zest, pine resin, flowery hops, honey. Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation and a bitter-sweet aftertaste.
