Look - Pours a hazy straw yellow, reminiscent of a white ale. Visible sediment in suspension. Fluffy white head with very good bubble distribution. Good head retention. Very effervescent. Good clinging. 3.75 paws.

Smell - Noticeable hop aroma, maybe noble hop varieties, smells like a german pilsner. Clean orange citrus undertones. Slightly yeasty, but not spicy. 4 paws.

Taste - Bitter up front with a finish of orange and orange peel. Clean grassy, steely hop character. Sweet honey vanilla malt undertones, very subtle. 4 paws.

Feel - Mild tingle, somewhat chewy. Not grainy, very smooth. 4 paws.

Overall - Overall a very enjoyable beer. Not labeled as a white IPA, or as anything for that manner, but that is what it tastes like to me, which would still fall under the Belgian IPA umbrella. Never had a Belgian IPA that blew me away, but this is a very solid beer. 4 paws.

Meow beer.

Pours a clear, copper/maize color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of yeast, sweet malt, hops, slight citrus, slight alcohol, and slight tartness. Fits the style of a Belgian IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, sweet malt, hops, slight citrus, alcohol, and tanginess. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.
