Half liter pours hazy deep gold with white head. The aroma is full of spicy hops, citrus grapefruit like hops, some orange peel and spicy yeastiness. The taste is firm spicy saison like yeastiness with layers of grapefruit, tangelo and tangerine roaming around underneath. Yummy sharp spicy and citrus and yeasty brew.

cask on tap at Birch and barley. Another great head and lacing with a big hops nose, with hints of soap and spruce. Plenty of aromatic hops taste and a nice finish. Not an American IPA for sure but OK
