16 oz can poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Appearance
Golden-yellow with a short white head that dissipates quickly. Crystal clear with light carbonation.

Nose
Clove, potpourri, grapefruit, honey, and perhaps some tropical fruit.

Taste
Light flavors of clove, potpourri, and earthy dry hay. Sourdough bread and honey sweet maltiness is balanced by grapefruit pith and pine needle hop bitterness. All of the flavors are moderately light.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, clean, and semi-dry with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
A simple American IPA spiked with Belgian yeast. It works just fine.

Can poured into nonic pint glass. Great citrus nose and golden color. Has a very well balanced hop profile, with the yeasty Belgian feel that this beer promises. Drinkable. almost to the point of sessionable - despite the 6.5% ABV. Very solid

The Bros. review pretty much matches my experience (except I didn't detect any tobacco or green bananas). This ale is a real class act. Cheers!
