750 ml bottle I picked up from Hop City in Atlanta. Can't remember how much this ran me but it was cheaper than most Bruery offerings at Hop City. Served up in a tulip as suggested.

A: Looking good for sure. Body is a dark orange in color with a little bit of yellow forcing through at the bottom of the tulip. Held to the light, I am getting more of a hazy yellow in color, the orange mellows out a bit. Still dark and hazy. The pour got me about a finger and a half of bubbly white head. The head has some serious stick to it and is throwing up a good amount of lace. Can't track down any carbonation in the glass. Still a very impressive looking pour.

S: Smell is all hops. Starting off with some herbal and grassy notes. There is a good amount of citrus behind that with some grapefruit and orange. Has a light earthy not of Belgian yeast in there but it is pretty faint. Nothing crazy in this department but very enjoyable.

T: Yet again this is very hop forward, but with that said, this is balanced. Not crazy bitter but you expect it with the dose of hops that come forward. Good amount of herbal hops that bring out a slight medicinal flavor throughout the sip. Grassy and earthy hop presence. Grapefruit is there but not too bitter, touch of orange. (Once this warmed completely to room temp, a little bit of bitterness came out). No real Belgian qualities coming out in this one for me as far as the flavor goes. The yeast is very subdued and I am not getting those typical Belgian flavors. The malts are not noticeable (light pale) that much in flavor, but they neutralize any bitterness this beer may have had. Quite tasty.

M: Hmmm . . . this doesn't have any carbonation. I am talking pretty much nil in that department. Kinda taking away a bit from this. Would like a nice dose of carbonation, but that may just be me. Medium in body but it feels heavier at time due to the carbonation issue. Pretty smooth, light bitterness. Aftertaste is grapefruit and that herbal medicinal quality.

D: Not bad at all. It has room to improve in my eyes but it is easy drinking and isn't a bad beer by any stretch. Its highly drinkable beside the carbonation issue. Has a nice balance to it and the hoppy aroma is damned fine. A solid offering but I was expecting a bit more.
