Notes/Commercial Description:
This straw colored pale ale was brewed with pilsen malt, Belgian yeast and Amarillo hops then dry-hopped with a touch more for a complex easy drinking experience. Names after Oscar Neebe. Anarchist? Maybe. Yeast Salesman? Definitely.

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.
