Awesome strange Belgian IPA-ish yet Rye Dry... Aw fuck, I can’t explain this beer! It’s excellent, much like a RyePA, yet at the same time very Belgian.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a golden color with a bit of fine head. Intense citrusy hop flavors. Unusual to put so much hops into a golden ale. The hop profile matches the style though. But it's a little overpowering. Nice fruitiness. The citrusy bitterness lingers a long time.
