A: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a bubbly, lingering white head. Carbonation is very noticeable, and little particles of yeast collect at the bottom of the glass.
S: Aromas of biscuits and tropical fruit dominate the nose. The smell is straight-forward, but is interesting enough to be inviting.
T: Notes of biscuits, lemon, grapefruit, kumquat, navel orange, and pine swirl across the palate. I thought I was also able to detect the subtlest hints of mango and papaya. The finish is bitter and slightly resinous with tart citrus notes in abundance.
M: Medium bodied, firm, and dry. Carbonation is active, but unobtrusive. Very drinkable for such a complex ale.
O: This is a wonderfully flavorful, gorgeously balanced IPA that straddles the line between English and American variants of the style. Very much worth trying.

Color- hazy sunshine. Full head.
Aroma- floral, hints of pineapple, and hint of bread.
Taste- a gentle, sublime English IPA. Starts with a hoppiness that balances between mild citrus and floral, then transitions to an effervescent farmhouse ale with notes of earthiness, and finishes with mild lemon-like hops. Has some similarities to a Belgian IPA but with more balanced hoppiness.
Poured from 500 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted July 2014. Purchased at Whole Foods in Austin.

This beer was a pleasant surprise. I am used to drinking super-hoppy and bitter beers. However, this beer had a nice bit of hops but it was very smooth and very easy to drink. On top of the hops, I also got subtle notes of citrus, pine, and grass. Would definitely want to drink again.
