Aroma leaves a bit to be desired. Taste had some tropical notes though, not much in terms of bitterness. Pretty easy to drink ipa.

Poured up on tap at the 2015 edition of the AZ Strong Beer Festival where it exhibits a crystal clear gold body that supports a tall tight light tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up a bit of spicy hops that lean toward onion and then a little bit of malts and cracker like maltiness.
The taste is kind of juicy and then gets bitter with hops. It is mostly juicy clementine and then a thin layer of juicy orange and then rolling into grapefruit hop bitterness and spicy onion hoppy bitterness.

Bottle. Honey-hued with with great clarity and a head like white silk. Aroma is a blast of dried citrus up front before apricot, marzipan and a soft biscuity note. The flavor isn’t terribly complex but delivers a solid strike of orange peel, crackers and black pepper. Concentrated honey sweetness balances the hops deftly. Finishes very clean, though bitterness is quite high.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes and my trip to AZ.
The appearance was a orange/brown colored body with a light one finger ed white foamy head that dies within about a minute. Light lacing tries to cling but slides for the most part.
The smell starts smelling like an American Amber, but eventually shows the Belgium aspects of a nice light yeasty sweet lightly hoppiness.
The taste was mainly sweet but leads to a decent yeastiness, and gives way to the same aftertaste and yet still has a dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body, somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for a Belgium Pale Ale and for me
Overall, seems like more of a Belgian Pale Ale than a Belgian IPA since I didn’t get enough hops. Still worthy of coming back to.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a taster at Ground Control. Pours a mostly clear gold with a finger of white head that laces the glass unevenly. Aroma of pale and sweet doughy malts, wheat, apricot, and pineapple juice. Flavor of pineapple, wheat, dough, nectar, and lemon zest. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Nice IPA.
