look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall Summit glass.
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy copper amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a good amount of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A yeasty Belgian style aroma with a big presence of citrus hop esters. Upfront Belgian yeast with some barnyard funk, pepper, and clove. Big hop presence with some floral and earthy hints of grass. Juicy citrus hop esters with hints of orange peel, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, passion fruit, and lemon zest. Also some fruit hints of banana and apple. Some bready malt with hints of caramel, grains, and biscuit. A really good aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, spicy and fruity Belgian yeast with a big presence of earthy and citrus hops. Belgian yeast along with some barnyard funk, peppers, and clove spice. Dried fruit notes of banana. Sharp hop presence with earthy and floral notes of grass and pine spice. Juicy citrus hop taste of orange peel, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, lemon, and passion fruit. Bready malt background with notes of sweet caramel, grains, cracker, and biscuit. A really solid taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Spicy, juicy, and slightly oily. Drying and fairly smooth.
Overall: A really good take on a Belgian IPA. This really brings the IPA part with lots of juicy hops but there is enough Belgian yeast spice to keep things interesting.
