Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a glass
A - Light/medium orange and/or gold tint.
S - Citrus aromas are prominent - definitely some orange... maybe some grapefruit as well. The hops are there as well, but not overwhelmingly so.
T - Again, the citrus flavors are most present and give the beer nice refreshing characteristics. The hops complement the citrus flavors nicely to give this beer a smooth and enjoyable taste.
M - Generally refreshing, however, the carbonation has the occasional tendency to give the beer a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste.
O - This is a very enjoyable beer! In many ways it represents the best of both worlds - the refreshing citrusy flavors of a Belgium ale and the hoppy high alcohol content of an American IPA. Well done! Highly recommended, especially to novices (like myself) who are intrigued by the compelxity of IPAs, but occasionally find them to be a bit harsh and heavy on the palate.
