02/05/14 From bottle at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Way out front on the grapefruit side of the hops. Citra? I don'tknow enough to opine, but I strongly suspect it's so.

As one who doesn't appreciate too much hoppiness, this is pleasant. Tame, even...until it warms up.

The 6% elevates it beyond a session quaff, but It's good for a few as long as they stay cold!

Pours gold color with a 2 finger foamy snow white head that was full of bubbles and faded extremely slowly, leaving excellent lacing. Smells and tastes of graham cracker, toasted grains, citrus hops, coriander, herbs, floral hops, caramel, biscuit, yeast and piney hops/pine cone. It seemed too grainy at first, but it grew on me as the balance was really nice and it flowed down like a session beer. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, with average carbonation, some thickness and a slightly bitter finish with a slightly tart yeast essence. Nice above average Belgian IPA that tasted fresh on tap, but lacked the big hop accents I was hoping for.

Pours slightly hazy light orange with a large meringue like white head. Excellent. Sticky lacing.

Belgian yeast mingles with tropical fruit. Citrus, bubblegum, pineapple. Some spicy phenols as well. Sweet graham cracker malt backbone.

Tropical fruit and bitter hops upfront. Very juicy and almost sweet, but dries out quickly. Orange zest and biscuity pilsner malt.

Fairly high carbonation but not spritzy. Medium body. Hop resin coats the mouth. Very dry and surprisingly pretty refreshing.

For a Belgian IPA, it is quite nicely balanced. The Belgian yeast flavors mingle quite well with the bitter resiny hop flavors.
