3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewpub
A very nice Belgian style double IPA is more American than anything else. A few tweaks could improve it greatly. Even so the half pint was not very tough to finish. Your typical regional draft, this is the sort of thing that keeps locals coming back instead of drinking elsewhere.
Aroma / Appearance - A warm bronze base sits idly with a clean vanilla head mated to it. Traces of carbonation pop from time to time. The scent of a muddy garden just before sunrise wafts lazily into the air. A balanced bitterness permeates to the core of the aroma and binds everything together.
Flavor / Palate - Citrus, lemongrass, and spiciness have a slight delayed impact. The bitterness is more American style IPA than Belgian yeast. A smooth transition helps the flavors swell before the intensity crests after a few sips. More like an IPA brewed with a pinch of white pepper, the result is still easy to drink.
