From a 22 oz bottle into a tulip.
A-The beer pours an amber color with orange tint. Mostly clear with a few visible streams of carbonation. The head was thin and tan, and it goes away quickly, but leaves a little cap that never completely diminishes. There is some nice lacing.
S-The beer has a pleasant floral and citrus aroma with orange being quite noticeable. There is a piney undertone and a light alcohol spice that matches up nicely. It's not quite as luscious and sweet as an IIPA, and there is definitely a little funk that lets you know you're not drinking a Pliny.
T-The taste is unique and quite variable. It starts with obvious piney/hoppy tones and some orange/citrus that matches the smell, but then the yeasty, funky flavors start to take over. The finish is almost like a butter biscuit. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit all over the place.
M-The beer is lighter bodied with solid carbonation. There is a somewhat chalky finish.
O-I enjoyed this brew. It is more fleshy than many Belgian IPAs I have had, which is both good and bad. Its good if you (like me) like fruity, tropical hops, but bad if you want something a little more concentrated.
