Cask Pint from D.B.A Brooklyn’s Cask Beer Festival. Pours a cloudy golden orange with plenty of yeast flying around the glass. This is a really nice experiment of IPA and Belgian ale blend.

Had on tap at Great Divide 15th Anniversary Party. Color is a very hazy orange brown with good carbonation and a thick tight head. Aroma is strong and a little odd with a hay like hop scent mixed with some pine and a mild fruity yeast scent. It starts with a heavier medium body that goes down with a nice smooth feel. Finish comes in sweet with the Belgian yeast showing first giving some fruit flavor, then the hops jump in with a citrus and pine like taste. In the after taste the sweetness continues with the pine, but it seems clean. Overall its a good brew, but its an odd blend of flavors and not one I would seek out.

beautifully ugly, like sand mixed in orange juice with a thick head. the hops hit me at first sniff, but there is a melon scent that is weirdly strangely inviting. the yeast notes are evident in the first taste, but the hops meld together with a vanilla sweetness. that citrusy melon lingers in the finish. sweet cookie dough, pineapple, cantalope, and a strong bitter piney yeast all mix together shockingly well. 4 10 8 5 19

On tap @ Great Divide Tasting room poured a cloudy gold with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of earthiness, pine, citrus, melon, tropical fruit and yeast. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, melon, tropical fruit, light citrus and light pine with a smooth moderatly bitter fruity finish.
