4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler. Pours a gorgeous, bright gold hue with a soft, pure white head. Nose of banana and yeast with just hints of hops. Flavor is more Belgian than IPA, but there is certainly some citrusy hop bite. The commercial description is right on in that this beer "will leave you begging for more!" Really damn good, and the 9.2% is nowhere to be seen. Mouthfeel is medium-light with decent carbonation and mild warming. Great beer.

It is definitely a Belgian IPA that hinges on the yeasty spice and esters rather than the hops.
