The beer comes in a light golden peach color with a white head.

The aroma is quite fruity with citrus, grapefruit, and Beligan yeastiness. You also get some bright yeast and fruit notes.

The flavor follows with grapefruit, some sweet bready malt, bubblegum. There's a bit of spiciness along with some herbal notes.

The finish is quite drying with lots of grapefruit. It's a strong bitterness that really shows you that this is an American BIPA.

An interesting brew. I prefer a few of the Belgian options I have, but this is quite good.

Yes!!! Pours golden with champagne bubbles, soapy white head. Lacing is decent, nothing spectacular. Smells like a hefeweizen on steroids, traces of banana and coriander! Taste follows the nose; a total hefeweizen on PED's! Feel is clean and crisp; great Summer beer! Overall I wish this was available in a 4 or 6 pack; other than that, terrific!
