3.5/5 rDev -11.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Served on tap in a sample glass.
Appearance: Amber color, with a white head.
Smell: Citrus, malts, hops, pine notes, and cloves. Interesting combination of scents coming from this beer.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of citrus, hops, malts, and cloves. Much like the smell, it is an interesting combination of flavor.
Overall: Not a bad brew, but not my first choice. Little bit of an identity crisis with this one, wants to an IPA and a Witbeir at that same time, I guess that is the best way to describe it.
Serving type: on-tap

4.23/5 rDev +7.4%

A- poured a cloudy light gold with about two fingers of foamy white head. Head dissipates down to about a half finger and leaves thick lacing.
S- interesting citrus and spice blend. Citrus reminds me of grapefruit and lemon.
T-the belgian yeast definitely comes through. It tastes like a very hopped Saison, with the fruity esters and the hoppy citrus balanced quite well against the malt backbone.
M- hints of carbonation and a little thinner in feel.
O- a really good, albeit very different IPA than the usual.
Serving type: bottle
