look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: High clarity and pale yellow IPA. Thin white head and low carbonation.

S: Good Belgian yeast funk! Some clean and herbal hops, citrus, sweet white bread, cedar.

T: Mind blowing! This is really different than anything I've had before, I dig it! There is kind of a sweaty aftertaste, which it gets dinged for. Bonus for originality. Sour notes and moderate hop bitterness. I feel like there are some floral notes that want to come out but are masked. Heavy yeasty, malty flavor.

M: Dry and thin, light on the palate. Medium level carbonation. Lets the bitterness hang on just long enough.

O: It's great for a niche beer. I don't know if I could drink these every day, but I think it might come down to taste acquisition. Really unlike anything I've had before. A good example for home brewers to see what a big difference a yeast makes.

Light and golden in color almost crystal clear transparency and lots of effervescing bubbles. Fine head with some good retention. Smells fruity and yeasty with mild hops. Pineapple, cloves, citrus, and florals. Very light flavor but surprisingly well balanced. A unique combination of an IPA and Belgian. Very well rounded beer, lots of great flavors and great if you're looking for something new and unique.

22oz Bomber Into Tulip Glass
Enjoy By: 03.26.13

A – Light yellow with amber hues. Big fluffy bright white head. Leaving nice puffy lacing down the glass.

S – Big Belgian yeast notes. Chalky orange, citrus, and coriander. Some light pine from the hops.

T – Notes of citrus resonate again, as well as nice juicy and peppery hops. The profile is complex.

M – Clean and refreshing. Crisp, lingering aftertaste is nice.

O – Very unique beer. A super yeasty IPA. Hops take a back seat role to the yeast here. Nice overall.
