4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from the brewery. Pale hazy straw color with lasting white head. Yeasty esters banana mango aroma. Mildly sweet fruity pineapple mango with medium assertive citrus dry bitter bready finish. High fine carbo. Body might be too light. I think they should bring this up to 6.9% and it would be incredible. Excellent as it is though.

Growler filled at Big Z and consumed two days later. Pours a hazy pale gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of Belgian yeast that is both fruity and spicy. The flavor is very similar with the addition of some grapefruit citrus that emerges about five seconds after the sip and lingers briefly on the palate. Some grapefruit pith at the swallow that hangs around for about ten seconds before subsiding. Nice.

Very Belgian inspired IPA. Lots of wheat and yeast to start with some hops to finish. There is also a nice clove flavor throughout which, I think, is pretty much the characteristic flavor of anything that is going to call itself Belgian IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. aroma of yeast, clove, light Belgian spices, and citrus. The flavor shows more of the hop profile (bitter hops, citrus hops) with the Belgian notes present but definitely pushed to the background. An interesting Belgian IPA as it’s more hop forward (a plus for me) but still lets the Belgian notes through. Good stuff.

Interesting beer, more of an IPA than a Belgian. The Belgian characteristics, like the peppery yeast, are subdued here. The appearance is a hazy yellow, white head. The aroma is pine hops, light spicy, yeasty notes. The flavor is exactly the same, more resiny hops. The finish is a resin hop bittering, some light spicyness. Enjoyable.
