Pours a nice golden ale with a finger of fine, white foam. Excellent clarity. Smells of classic belgian yeast with hint of funk and earthy hops. No citrus, or fruit in the nose for me, yeast and earthy, grassy hops.

The yeast is what takes me first, with a medicinal quality in it and an odd, obscure flavor I remember, but can't finger. It reminds me of the aftertaste of some kind of medicine it seems I keep gravitating toward. I don't really get any kind of hop presence, but my tongue is perplexed by the aforementioned flavor.

Medium on thin with moderate carb and some decent slick on the finish. This beer has the one flavor that kills it for me overall in this beer, wish I could pinpoint it, but nonetheless, it's a no go for me.

Served in bubble pint glass. Poured a slightly cloudy light gold color with an inch of white head that had good retention and lacing.

The aroma featured a good pine and floral hop aroma upfront with a slightly odd yeasty spice note in the background. The flavors were very similar to the scents, just not as bold or well-defined. The hops weren't as well defined, there wasn't much of a malt profile and the weird yeast/spice flavor was just wrong.

The body was pretty typical for an IPA, medium-ish, and except for the yeasty spice lingering had a clean finish. Drinkability was terrible due to the weird flavoring. Overall, a substandard brew from a brewery that, if it rarely thrills, even more rarely completely misses. I got no joy from this beer and can't recommend it.
