there is a fluffy head that lasts with vigor, fades after a long while into lacing and a collar. Body is translucent pale amber.
Nose is balanced with cascade hop like notes and sweet sugar rolled strawberry.
The malts cover more of the hop flavors then on the aroma, but some citrus still cuts through. Summer fruits, caramel, noting some floral esters which are probably the biggest sign of the belgo yeast.
medium body.

A friend loves it so I bought it. A decent beer but I won't seek it out. Nice looking reddish brown color. Smell is unremarkable. I can't detect anything distinct. Taste is fine - very slightly piney but vague. I can't put my finger on what it tastes like, which isn't to say it's bad but a bit ordinary. Light effervescent mouthfeel. I have been to Brewery Vivant and had great beer there. This is pretty middle of the road (and I won't say anything about the name).

I was expecting something hoppier still a decent brew. Gift of cans from SliverX IP. Reddish tinged colour, bubbly. Medium mouthfeel, well malted, some orange flavour, somewhat astringent finish. Drinkable.Decent drinkability, not getting hops in nose so do not make it out to be a Belgian IPA as promoted.
