Pours a hazed orange tinged lighter golden with a nice looking half finger almost creamy-like head.Citrus fruits in the nose with a tinge of spiced Belgian yeast although not real big,very citrusy.Mild yeasty notes on the palate with a big burst of the fresh citrus and tropical fruity hops,light earth in the finish.A refreshing beer that doesn't seem to show it's "size",very drinkable.

This one like many gets better as it gets closer to room temperature. Don't really taste much Belgian yeast but still very delicious.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: very murky orange hue with a finger of creamy ivory foam. Not bad, but a little mysterious with all the murk.

Smell: nice funky aroma with just a hint of sourness. The funk must be due to a combination of hops and a saison-type yeast; whatever the proportions, the effect is quite nice.

Taste: funky and earthy, yet bright and not nearly as dank as I might expect a formula like this to be. The combination of brightness and earth really works for me. Bitterness is relatively high, but it's smooth and not rasping. I dig it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and a very satisfying creaminess. It really works for me.

Overall: this is a very fine Belgian-inspired DIPA. I can really get behind beers like this, which are interesting and refreshing despite the high ABV.
