I would call this a Belgian IPA more than anything. Pours out a lighter orangey color with some golden hues through out. Mostly hazy. A soft fizzy white head with good retention and decent lace.
The nose has a good blend between spice and hops. Some minor malty undertones, but places behind everything else. The spice is more of a pepper note with a hint of coriander. The hops are kind of a mix between a citrus and lemon but a hint of earthiness as well. Some noticeable yeast character that is common in their beers
The taste is similar but the hops come out more verses everything else. A more citrus, mango hop note up front that continues into the finish. The yeast comes out more with some esters and phenols. Some light peach and tropical fruits. The spice backs off from the finish but some peppery notes in the finish. Some winey notes but not over the top.
The body is dry which helps bring out the hoppy notes. Carbonation is a bit much but overall ok. Some lingering yeast notes that come out more as it warms. Overall a good beer, but more of a Belgian IPA for me than anything else.
Serving type: on-tap

3.86/5 rDev -3.7%

Bottle: Poured a cloudy beige color ale with a large dirty white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spicy ginger notes with rustic malt and fruity zesty hops. Taste is a great mix between some rustic malt with quite dry aftertaste and some spicy ginger notes with some fruity and zesty hops. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer but I would have personally prefer less ginger.
