look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Two fingers of head, the bubbles danced nicely as they rose, good lacing. Clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is floral and piney. Excellent complexity and depth.
The taste is moderately bitter balanced with the malty sweetness. There's some honey as well.
Smooth texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.

4.13/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- medium amber gold, great lacing, and good retention

S- fresh fruitiness, apricot and fresh piney citrus hops, strong yeastiness with some barnyard notes.

T - Great full yeast grip, bitterness is full but not overpowering, subtle fruity sweetness, really good balance of flavour and nice subtle complexities with the strong yeast aspect.

M - Good carbonation, crip and dry, refreshing full body but nicely drinkable.

This was quite good stuff, a definite bret yeasty edge to it, and the california hops came through pretty well, thought it worked quite well, worth a try.

22oz into tulip.

A - Clear gold copper with a thick bright white head.

S - Floral hops, banana, spicy Belgian yeast with hints of tropical fruit and sweet caramel.

T - Sweet bready malt, grapefruit, lemon, earthy pine, and herbal spice. Finishes slightly bitter ending with grain, yeast and fruity notes.

M - Smooth, slick, and a bit sticky. Light-medium body, crisp mild carbonation.

O - An interesting, easy drinking Belgian IPA. The yeast imparts a nice herbal spicy quality that blends well with the malt and hops used.
