Poured into DL snifter...
A- First- hells fuck yes to the bottle art, A+++! Pours hazy golden color. Nice off white head. Dense and stable bubbly head. Very nice.
S- Incredibly light and lemony. Funky zest, barnyard, white grapes, floral, and tropical to round it out. Crisp and refreshingly balanced aroma.
T/M- Very very funky. Bitter, but not as hoppy as the nose leads you. Barnyard flavors, old leather, hay, dirty/earthy hops all around. Add a touch of lighter fruitiness (absence could be just that its not super fresh) and this is top notch Belgian IPA. Incredibly dry finish, lot of carbonation, medium body, coates the palate.
O-.Absolutely stellar beer. One of, if not the, best Belgian IPAs I've had. Would love to have again, preferably super fresh. Might try and trade for this down the road. Very refreshing and perfectly balanced brett funk.
