A - Poured out a hazy, golden amber color with an off-white, pillowy head of foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled floral and yeasty. Some burnt toast maltiness.

T - Odd. It was a little soapy and astringent. Old maybe? No date on bottle. Some spicy bitterness and caramel maltiness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - I really can't figure out the soapy flavors. Again, maybe it was old.

22oz bottle.

Pours a hazy amber with a soapy white head that leaves spots of lacing along the sides.

Aroma is a combination of floral grassy hops and some spicier Belgian yeast notes. Some earthiness from that yeast and some lemon zest and light citrus. Toasted caramel malts in the background.

The taste is even maltier with more caramel and toasted malts than I was expecting. The hops are present and of the earthy, grassy variety, though they are not prominent. The finish is where the spiciness of the Belgian yeasts come out.

Mouthfeel is active with strong carbonation and dry and bitter in the finish.

This is a decent IPA/Belgian IPA but not my favorite from Freetail. I think I prefer the hoppier versions of the style.
