best beer from a brewery i have never heard of i can remember. what a cool brew, amber in color, light amber, pale copper, with a tall lasting off white head. it smells way more belgian than i usually like in belgian ipa, with a ton of fruity yeast and an almost white wine vibe. the citra hops are the kicker though, they are so well dosed and so fresh and vibrant that they bring the yeast and the malt together where it always seems disjointed in the style to me. the citra is juicy lemon curd and pineapple, which matches the esters in the belgian yeast as well as the higher sugars in the medium crystal malt. a great tripartite synergy here. hops do carry enough bitterness to balance out the sweet, but they are so oily and big that they keep the finish really long. its refreshing though with high flying carbonation. this was a huge surprise to me, one of those beers i had no real expectations for and it floored me. super well made, i am now eagerly seeking more beer from these guys. are they all this good?
