3.5/5 rDev -3.6%
Thin rapidly dissipating head on a cloudy pale straw colored body. Very fruity with pineapple, sweet lemon custard and orange peel. Little on the Belgian side though. Flavor has more Belgian character with nice yeast presence, musty earthy hops, grassy notes and some metallic taste but in a good sense. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Fairly unique for the style and definitely memorable as how it differs FTP other BPAs.

Served in a chalice-esque glass at the brewpub.
Another stop on the Second Annual Bachelor Party Free-For-All! This one pours a hazy gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises light leek, mild pine sap, very light biscuit, and light lemon zest. The taste holds notes of lemon zest, light pine needle, funky leek (another potential band name?), and a strange artificial lemon-funk that summons visions of the evil of Sorachi Ace (though, supposedly, no such hops were employed in this here brew). Luckily, though, this Sorachi-ness doesn't completely ruin the experience (unlike most encounters with that nefarious hop). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a nice BPA, nothing amazing, but a tasty li'l brew.

On tap at the brewpub. Light yellow and a small head. Lacey. Funky aroma. Decent taste and drinkability, some fruitiness. A little sour, derived from lemon, clove and pepper, rather than expectation of a Belgian IPA. Somewhat like a cross style saison. Sessionable abv.

I had the dry hopped Oscar’s Pardon. Not sure if that’s the regular version or a one-off.
This is a cloudy golden color, reminiscent of a Belgian-style wit. I pick up some floral notes along with a lightly hopped aroma. Flavor is more of the same: lightly hopped, thin flavored, light bodied… Not very exciting, even for the style (which I tend to find not very exciting in general—with some exception.) Although it’s dry hopped the hops weren’t very assertive and didn’t contribute much overall.

This beer was served a cloudy hazy yellow with a big sticky white head, nice lacing and solid retention.
The smell was light and lemony with a touch of Belgian yeast spice.
The flavor was a nice blend of late american hop additions mixing in well with the belgian yeast flavors, just a touch of grainy wheat sweetness coming through as well.
The mouthfeel is light with good carbonation and a touch of oily resin.
This is nicely done, a session style beer with plenty to offer in flavor and smell. The dry hopping really gives this beer a nice nose and a good flavor profile, well done.
