3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a light golden orange color with solid beige foam. The aroma has lots of hops resin and tropical fruit (mango,guava, passion fruit) along with a mild Belgian yeast presence in the background. The flavor starts out tart and bitter with a mix of lemon, ruby red grapefruit, orange rind and pineapple notes in addition to some clove, coriander and honey. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with soft carbonation and a bitter, alcohol warming finish. This could easily have been a bitter, boozy mess but instead turns out to be a rather tasty Belgian style DIPA.

6 oz sample on tap at taphouse in Seattle. Aroma has some floral character with some underlying sweetness and a little spiciness. Somewhat bland. Transparent copper body with a small, off white head. Starts sticky, sweet, with plenty of banana yeast esters. Becomes a little boozy and spicy in the middle. Finishes cloying and boozy. Not so great.
