Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange gold with large frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is pine, resin, and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with fruity hop and caramel with light bitter finish. Easy to drink hides alcohol well. Very good IIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up tonight at the COOP for about $7.. Poured into my HotD goblet... nice 1" foamy white head.. great lacing with pretty good retention.. the brew is lightly hazed orange.
The nose is really well done for a Belgian IPA.. restrained American fruity hoppiness with a nice yeastiness... great balance between the citrus/tropical fruitiness and the clovey/pink bubblegum phenols... Smells great.
Flavor leans more toward the yeast profile but is still well balanced.. a bitterness shows up front just long enough to allow the lite pale malts and Belgian phenols sing.. very drinkable, finishes pretty dry and begs for another sip.
Body is medium/lite with a good amount of small bubble carbonation that helps lift the palate. I cannot believe this is 8%+.. NEVER would have guessed it.
I have enjoyed a few of Selkirk’s brews on tap/growler now and am super stoked to see the first bottles.... I know more are coming and cannot wait. This is very well done for a style that is easy to get out of whack.

Shaker pint draft at Capone’s Pub & Grill in Post Falls, Idaho. The pour is a clear golden with a 1/2 inch white head that is quite lasting. The aroma is floral honey, bitter and sweet, with a nice Belgian spice yeast character towards the back. The taste is floral sweet honey, turning pretty heavy towards the Belgian spice in the finish. The palate is medium bodied with a lower carbonation level. Solid Belgian IPA.

Tap - @ RHP. Pours golden yellow with nice big fluffy white head. Big sticky hop aromas mixed with oranges and resin. Taste is delicious, with great balance of malt bill, bitter hops, and good fruit. Oranges and sticky notes. Finishes long and strong with very little heat at 8.2%. Really awesome. Would love it in 4 packs or 750 mL.
