From Lukas wine and spirits. Definitely a great farmhouse IPA. Mild hop flavor with smooth finish. Smells of bananas. Been waiting for these guys and not disappointed.

A heavily hazed apricot body is crowned by a creamy, somewhat frothy inch of white head slowly fading to a semi solid cap with a complete frothy ring and thick horizontal peninsulas of lace

Vibrant, fluent, complimentary layers of citrus, tropical fruit, light earth and spice, and light dough with medium intensity... orange, lemon, pineapple, melon, and mango with white pepper, flowers, and a touch of basil loosely and consistently woven together with an underlying white doughy sweetness... all on a cohesive, exceptionally slick medium body with restrained carbonation... residuals with medium duration echo the previously mentioned components leaving a light sense of juice, lightly bitter-sweet... a very well done blend of everything I look for in a standard saison taken to another level with fruity, juicy hops
Capped 750ml Bottled On 10-30-15 consumed one day after KC retail roll-out at 45º and warming into Orrefors Beer Taster & 14.7 oz Zwiesel Cognac Snifter (best nose to taste match)
The pour was a nice copper color. The overall taste was really good. I didn’t find it too hoppy which was nice. I recommend this beer for IPA lovers. theisti (4175) - Kansas, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Draft Tulip at Rye in Leawood, Kansas. The pour is a golden copper, mostly clear with some nice fine nice carbonation bubbles that rise to the surface, building a 1 inch perfectly white head. Nice lace left on the glass as the beer drinks down. The aroma is soft fresh Saison earth, bright floral citrus hops and a bit of lemon to the back. The taste is bright, fresh and clean, beautiful Saison grain earth accented by the floral citrus hops. The palate is medium bodied with soft natural carbonation and a mineral Saison yeast finish. Great execution a fresh hoppy Saison. Right up my alley. rosenbergh (11753) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2016

Clear golden color with a mid-size foamy white head.
Very nice aroma of fresh hops, mild bitterness, yeast, dryness, grainy malt and mild glue. The flavor is hops, moderate bitterness, dryness, grainy malt, yeast and some earthy notes. Nice combo.
rating from notes last night in Joplin’s finest Hilton Branded Hotel. Pours golden, white head. light grassy nose. taste has some typical belgian yeast notes of gum, black pepper, grass, flower, solid bitterness. Light to medium body. enjoyable. MaBeer1972 (2143) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. Pours out a hazy light golden amber with a frothy off white head. Bright fruity-citrus aromas. Classic Belgian-style yeast notes. Quite bready. Very flavorful and refreshing. Interesting take on the style. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a foggy orange color with a thick, frothy white head. Very Belgiany. Slight hops in the aroma. Thick taste. Some malt and hops mixed together. Strong Belgian ale presence. Good brew though. thegreenrooster (4512) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Pour is a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma is a equally stellar mix of hops and yeasty barnyard esters. Flavor is the same a very dry malt profile with a lot of oily hops and esters with a little white pepper spice. You could call this a farmhouse IPA or a hoppy saison and you would correct with both descriptions. Really flavoful and the best of both worlds.

Funky IPA isn’t always something that works, but Crane has figured out a solid way to do it. Copper-colored pour - this looks neither like IPA nor Farmhouse Ale, which makes sense since it’s a mix between the two. Smells like barnyard, dank hops, and earth. Flavor is definitely unusual. Bread, Brett, citrusy hops, and a mustiness that’s not unpleasant. I’d like a little more hoppiness, but in a lot of ways this reminds me of Anchorage’s Bitter Monk. That’s a flattering comparison for sure.
