Had on tap at flying saucer on 4/7/14 in tulip

A-Pours orange with a nice dense head. Great lacing.

S-Aroma is a lot of simcoe, some blood orange, some tangerine, a lot of citrus, and grass.

T-Taste follows the aroma but gets better as time passes.

M-Mouthfeel has a thin slick palate with faint background carbonation. Well balance of hops and malt.

O-Overall great beer would love to have in the summer very smooth.

Dark orange/caramel pour, one finger sturdy head, sticky.
Great American hop smell, with citrus, faint tropical fruit and pine, balanced with caramel malts.
Really tasty and fresh fruity hops: oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, pineapple, faint passion fruit. A quick flash of sweet caramel malts, then big herbal notes, with spruce, pine resin and green hay. A nice Belgian yeasty feel separates it from other IPAs, with a certain chunkiness and some nice fermentation sugars. Strong bitter finish.
Medium body and carbonation, lots of citric zestiness. Great hops in the aftertaste.
The amount of hops added in this one rivals with many American counterparts, and surpasses most of them. Keeps enough Belgian ale elements too. Very drinkable and tasty, tho a tiny bit too straightforward.
