330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 8/21/2013. Pours slightly cloudy golden orange color with a 3 finger dense and rocky white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, apricot, light banana, clove, black, pepper, floral, grass, herbal, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, hops, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, apricot, light banana, honey, biscuit, black pepper, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, apricot, light banana, honey, biscuit, clove, black pepper, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great sweetness/spice/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very excellent Belgian IPA style. All around great complexity and balance of yeast, hops, and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

(served in a goblet, over and over)

A: yellow-gold color, quite cloudy (as in containing wheat?)... long-lasting cap of foam, leaving some fabulous lace

S: lemon peel, lightly-toasted corn bread... flowery noble hops... overall Belgian blond or saison-like spicy aromatics

T: assertive, green-tea-like, tannic hop bitterness - leafy, tobacco-y... light banana tones with a lightly honey-sweet malt finish... light-moderate phenolic spiciness, alcohol well hidden... seems like a showcase for yeast proofing and spring lawn

M: smooth, frothy, round, medium body... mellow (spicy) warmth in the afterglow... one of the more foamy feels in a Belgian IPA - perhaps most similar to a Wit or Hefeweizen

O: had this a few times in the past week... stands out... the biting, leafy bitterness has me coming back again and again

Serving type: on-tap

33cl bottle (19/9/2015) into a goblet. Slightly hazy pale golden yellow with one finger white head that left a thin foam after settling down. Smell has malts and hops with a hint of apples. Crisp moderately sweet malty taste with a dry hop aftertaste with a note of grapefruit. Fruitier when colder and more hoppy as it warmed up. Very nicely balanced. Warms the tongue a bit but no apparent alcohol taste. Medium body and high carbonation. Very drinkable.
