4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy copper orange with a smaller bubbly off white head that laced. Aroma of peppery and tropical fruit from the Belgian yeast paired nicely with loads of citrusy American hops and hints of white wine from the Nelson. Flavor of citrus and pine, black pepper, mango, pineapple. Hints of toasted malt. I’m a fan of the Belgian IPA style and really liked both the Belgian yeast and hop profile on this one.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Birroteca in Baltimore. This beer was terribly mishandled in the keg. Pour was opaque milky yeast cake. Flavor was yeasty aspirin bitter. I hate giving this a low rating, but the restaurant did not do this beer any favors at all. Unfortunate.
