2.17/5 rDev -47.3%
poured into a snifter
fairly strongly carbonated at first, the larger bubbles soon become tiny ones. orangish color and a decent sized head. pretty decent lacing. piny hoppy smell that is typical of west coast ipas. slightly hoppy with hints of belgian spice and a slight alcohol burn to it. very dry with a strong aftertaste. definitely bitter. it's like someone spiked an ipa with some belgian spices by accident. the flavor is rather strange. mouthfeel is light with a weird aftertaste. i find this beer to be very weird. I'm not a fan of what is going on here.

Pours a light orange, clear with a big, light tan head with really good retention and lace.
Smell is odd for the style, very hippy with a light lemon note. Like standing in a lumber mill, the smell is that medicinal resin note. No malt detected.
Taste is very similar, hops and grapefruit with malt very light and late.
A warming at the swallow and the hops presence drops as fast as the beer down your throat. A relatively full body and a sharp effervescence up front. Aftertaste has some balance but still hop biased.
I suspect this brewer, like a few others (Rogue), hop heavier for the style than I think appropriate. If so, good to know ahead of time. Overall, though, its a good beer if a bit off style.

Pours a clear light orange. Big off-white foam head.
Smells strongly of spices, weird belgian yeast, and some sickly bananas. Some yeast also.
Taste introduces some light citrus (sweet grapefruit) notes to the yeast/spices/banana notes. Okay ... kind of weird. Like an IPA meets hefeweizen yeasty Belgian thang.
Well carbonated. But, primarily unpleasant.
