3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Coppery and mostly clear with a pretty chewy off white head and pretty decent lacing.
Pretty citrusy in the nose,, along with some yeastiness and a nice dose of hops.
Tastes very nice, Belgian yeast up front, nicely hopped in IPA fashion, but not overpowering in any one aspect. The ample malt backbone ties it all together.
Body is medium and yeasty on the finish. Carbonation is appropriate for the style and rounds out the beer.
It’s a nice Belgian IPA. Freetail makes lots of great beer, so I’m not surprised that this one is pretty tasty too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Orangish amber, hazy, large fluffy off-white head, nice lacing.   Sweet citrusy nose, a little candyish.   Moderately hopped on the tongue, not too strong.   Bitter but not biting, not as sweet as the
nose suggested but still has some candied citrus peel aspects.   Very slight pixie stix like powdery sugar flavor as well.   Fairly smooth, yet moderate body.   Finish is light bitterness, a touch citrusy, with that pixie
stix like sweetness.   Decent IPA, but not a bright or assertive example.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap flight at the brewery. Honey colored pour with a white film for a head. Belgian bubblegum yeast nose. Taste is very bitter with bubblegum. Medium mouthfeel. I like the yeast but think it would be better placed in a different brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy amber with a soapy white head that leaves spots of lacing along the sides.
Aroma is a combination of floral grassy hops and some spicier Belgian yeast notes. Some earthiness from that yeast and some lemon zest and light citrus. Toasted caramel malts in the background.
The taste is even maltier with more caramel and toasted malts than I was expecting. The hops are present and of the earthy, grassy variety, though they are not prominent. The finish is where the spiciness of the Belgian yeasts come out.
Mouthfeel is active with strong carbonation and dry and bitter in the finish.
This is a decent IPA/Belgian IPA but not my favorite from Freetail. I think I prefer the hoppier versions of the style.

Nice hoppy nose, clean profile not sharp or abrasive at all. Smooth malt flavor and would make for a nice session beer.
