On draft - 12oz in a goblet. Great yeast aroma, fruity, with a good hop finish. A little thin in the middle. Would definitely buy again.

Bottle, no date. Beer pours a light, cloudy, tan with a frothy white head. Aroma is citrusy Belgian yeast with it's sourdough bread like notes. To be honest my expectations fell at this point, I have never had a Belgian IPA that I really liked, all that changed. Taste is that same Belgian yeast and citrus from appropriately selected hops, but there is a pleasant malty sweetness that makes this beer work. All too often Belgian IPAs end up too dry and the bitterness is poorly balanced and unpleasant, not so here. Great job. Mouthfeel is on point with that nice stickeyness IPAs should have. Again, great beer.

A-a clear golden color with visible carbonation bubbles and a fingers worth of white head that sticks to the glass

S-bready malt, sweet summer fruits, yeast, and mild hops

T-pale bready malt backbone, citrus, and a nice balance between yeast and hops

M-medium body and low to medium carbonation

Overall very drinkable even with the higher ABV. Very nice balance between a Belgian beer and IPA.

Cold is this beer's friend. Drink it quick, it does turn to an off flavor quickly with time. That being said, it is a fruity hoppy clean crisp beer when cold. This rating is based on a colder temp.
