Thanks to Jeff for bringing this to the Metro Tasting. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is oranges, cedar and orange zest. Taste is much the same with a bit of spicy cedar character, grapefruit, well rounded and smooth. Pretty easy drinking stuff.

Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin lazing white head. The aroma is very spicy - ginger and cardemomme, combined with notes of cedar wood and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of cedar wood, spices - ginger and cardemomme, oranges, on a malty back ground, leading to a dry spicy finish where the cedar wood note lingers.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle while on vacation in Orlando. Pours amber gold with decent head. Plenty of lacing. Plenty of floral and citrusy hops. Grapefruit and pine. This was countered by the malty sweetness, and perhaps a bit of fruit. I love to get the bottom of the bottle and get some of that yeast. While it didn’t add much in the way of flavor, as would be the case in a Belgian offering, the yeast here was great at mellowing out the hops. As it warmed it turned into smooth but complex beer. The alcohol was very well hidden. Extremely smooth IPA.
