3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Gauzy, almost neon-ish yellow with a skimpy white film that barely covers the entire top of the brew. Aroma has fresh, weedy hops, mild orange rind, wet grass, a touch of florals, & I swear Iím picking up some Belgian style, spicy yeast... (I did not realize until later that this was listed as a Belgian ale, so I guess it makes sense). Taste has plentiful spicy & borderline earthy hops with more floral & grassy notes opening up mid-palate, not as citric as the nose would seem. Lightly pungent & quite bitter, lasting with a lingering sting into the aftertaste. Hops steal the show, the yeast & bready malt take a backseat in the flavor department, here. Crisp, snappy mouth feel, mostly dry finish. Decent Belgian-y style IPA.

Pours clear yellow, good white head. Smell is mild fruity by hops. bit malty. very hidden yeast. Taste is sharp, bitter, rather dry, mild hoppyness. somewhat malty underneath. Not very complex, the bitterness ( clearly bitter, but not overly intense ) kinda rules the whole pallet.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours amber orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, tropical fruits, Belgian yeast, funkiness, some sweet bready malts, grassy hops, and some pine. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice "Belgian IPA" that is pretty hoppy but still somewhat well balanced.
