On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is slightly hazy, and appears a light sunburst / copper hue. The white head hangs out for a few minutes, leaving a decent bit of lacing on the snifter as it recedes. The aroma is of hops, spices, yeast, light citrus and floral notes. It smells like a Belgian IPA. The flavor follows suit, with everything well balanced. Nice crisp carbonation and lingering aftertaste of hops and yeast. Overall, a decent beer. I’d have it again.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter. Pours a light copper color with a solid white head that lasts for quite a bit of time. Quite a bit of white lacing on the way down. The nose is sweet with a lot of summer fruit plus floral and tropical hops. There’s some citrus in there as well. A bit of yeasty spice. The flavor hits tropical, citrus, and floral hop notes. Everything is combined quite well. Some yeast, but not much. I won’t fault them too much, as the flavor is really nice and I don’t think this needs too much from the yeast. Medium body and a quite bitter finish. Really solid. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-04-2011

At Short’s Brewing Monster Tap Takeover at Churchkey. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a small foamy head. Aroma was mild, Belgian yeast strain in an IPA, mild citrus and pine notes. Flavor was Belgian yeast, mild citrus, touch of pine, mostly Belgian yeast. Very refreshing.
