5oz on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. Clear golden color. Thin white head, leaving good ridge of lace. Moderate bitter taste, hint of tart, light sweet, more dry. Interesting, complex flavor. Citrusy hop, bit of belgian yeast, get some of the agave. Mild spiciness. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter to moderate carbonation. Mild effervescence. Solid, interesting unique belgian IPA.

Draught @ Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, elderflower, yeast and floral. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, nutty and floral finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

On tap at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. Itís a clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. Thereís lots of peaches, mango and generic fruityness in the aroma, some grass and resin hints. Itís super soft on the palate, with a low carbonation level, medium to full body. Tropical fruits and some bitterness in the mouth, not much maltyness going on. Fruity finish. A bit weak all the way, but nice indeed. 150614

Tap: Yellow-ish body with some amber-orange tints. Unfiltered looking, super hazy with a lasting white cream perched on top. Aroma surrounded by piney hops; leafy, herbal, with a good dose of citrus peel in the periphery. Light notes of clove-y spice & typical Belgian yeast esters. Pretty standard for a Belgian IPA. Donít get sorghum, tapioca, agave, or chestnut... Or anything out of the ordinary, really. Flavor drinks like more like a pale ale. Very low bitterness. Notes of leaves, pines, & white pepper are there, but more so in flavor, not necessarily in IBU levels. I get a mild toasted nuttiness, I guess from the chestnuts. Slightly sweet honey coated bready & spicy yeast finish with a little bit of herbal pine. Lofty mouth feel.

Draft. Pours a clear golden color. Aroma and taste are light fruits and a hoppy bitter finish.

Tap at Jolly Pumpkin. Clear gold pour with a small head that leaves webbing after fading. Aromas are pineapple, banana, bubblegum, honey, and sweetened cereal. Taste is a nice blend of Belgian yeast and tropical fruit. Nice honey sweetness in the finish. Solid Belgian IPA.

Sweet fruity start, heavy sugary finish middle, dry finish and nutty. Finish a little too dry and comes on too quickly.
