On tap at Bangers and Lace. Pours a near clear orange gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of grapefruit and citrus witch a hint of pine bitterness. Flavor begins with more grapefruit but mellows to some bitter pine with a bit of citrus.

On tap at the Publican. Terrific citrus hop aroma. Same with the flavor. Very crisp, refreshing and smooth. I could drink this all night. Terrific beer from a great new brewery.

Tap at SO taproom. Soft orange pour, fluffy white head and lacing. Big, beautiful hop nose: citrus, candied grapefruit and orange, light caramel, touch of Belgian yeast influence. Full mouthfeel, touch of tropical fruit. Could be a little drier, but a winner overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at bangers SO invasion... Pours a mostly transparent brown cidery consistency and topped with a thin quickly reducing soapy white head... Belgian yeasty nose with mild citrus notes and tangerine presence. Adequate but that yeast seems to exist in a lot if these offerings... Flavors are more of the same but with an added earthy semi-bitter melon presence that adds an additional layer of complexity. Belgian yeast seems to be less abundant and those fruity notes amplified more which is nice. Medium bodied with semi-lively carbonation. Kind of enjoyed this one moreso from a flavor perspective.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed golden, slightly orange tinted body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has lots of Belgian yeast and pines. Banana esters, clove phenols, grapefruits, florals, and a lightly sweetened, somewhat bready malt backing. Flavor is similar. Bitter pines, florals, and Belgian yeast throughout. Some clove, banana, grapefruit, tangerine, a touch of vanilla, and a lightly sweetened, somewhat bready malt backing. A bit of a melon note towards the end before this finishes dry, fairly bitter, fruity, and somewhat estery before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a softer, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. I’m not usually a huge Belgian IPA guy, but this was really nicely balanced and well done. Good one.
