Copious amounts of piney, citrusy American hops make a light malt sweetness their bitch in this full-flavored Belgian IPA. Aggressive bitterness, massive hop flavor and super fruity Belgian yeast.

Pours an amber Orange on tap at lady Gregory’s. Head is thick and creamy, aroma is a bit sweet with Apple. Flavor follows slightly but more earthy with a bit of roasting but it compliments the flavor well.

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.
