3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange-amber color with a nice frothy head that fades normally and leaves nice webbing. Aroma is a cool balance of Belgian bubblegum and banana with citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is more Belgian dominant than the aroma. Bubblegum and banana overpower and there are just hints of citrus fruit. Candi sugar sweetness up front and a moderate bitterness. Medium body. Mouthfeel is sticky and dry. Decent Belgian IPA but wish the Belgian aspects were more subtle. And it’s a bit overpriced I think.
