This is a rewrite... as this years batch is... skip it. This went from a summer favorite to a disappointment.

Stamped lightly in green on the neck: "032315"
This was poured into a tulip because of the "Belgian twist" on the style.
The appearance was a glossy orange to hazy yellow. A decent transparency allows some floaties to be shown roaming throughout the body.
The smell takes the big burst of clementine and balances it with a slight coriander. Refreshing lemon also plays a nice backup as well.
The taste is balanced from the spice to the sweet and builds up a decent little kick of citrus in the finish. There’s no aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation is fulfilling as an AIPA and balances decently to the Belgian side of the spicy build-up. Adequate harshness with a wet refreshing glance over my tongue.
Overall, what a nice crisp refreshing take on an AIPA to brighten to a slight Belgian style. I’d have this again and would love to have with some grilled swordfish or tuna steaks
