4.44/5  rDev +4.2%

Appearance: Arrives with a honey color verging on golden; the head leaves some strands of lacing behind as it descends

Smell: Grapefruit and spicy Belgian yeast esters

Taste: A clean malt bill highlights the citrusy hops and the Belgian yeast with the yeast adding a peppery dimension after the swallow; well-attenuated finish

Mouthfeeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: One of the best examples of the Belgian IPA style I have encountered, this is another winner for DC Brau

Big thanks to BA Kegatron for splitting this growler with me. Poured into a snifter, it appears a clouded yellow color with a white head that fades leaving spotty lacing on the glass.

The aroma includes a yeasty note of bubblegum with a contrasting herbal citrus hop aspect that gets a little rindy to grassy. As it warms up, more of the focus changes back to that preciously mentioned yeasty spice feel.

The flavor is a bit rindy from the hops. The flavor gets somewhat similar to breakfast fruits/pulp and earth to grassy bitterness. There is a soft amount of grain presence but for the most part, the focus of this brew is on the hops and yeast spice.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. The alcohol was integrated well in this. Belgian IPA's are somewhat finicky. I think the yeast profile often clashes with any moderate hopping rate. In this case it wasnt bad and quite frankly I would probably try this again if the opportunity presented itself.

From a growler poured into a DC Brau can glass.

Appearance: Very light and very hazy straw color with a thick pillowy two finger white head. Dense 1/4" head retention lacing throughout.

Aroma: Citrusy hops with a slight tropical twist. Lemongrass, peppery spice and some farmhouse funk.

Taste: Citrusy and yeasty up front. Pineapple, grapefruit and lemon zest all come to mind before it picks up a little with some hints of Belgian funk and a spicy peppery and bready yeast finish. Very clean flavors, finish is

Mouthfeel: A little lighter than medium yet packs considerable carbonation and an aggressive hop profile and Belgian spice. In other words, it's very drinkable but has huge flavors.

A-Jaded straw color. Big, fluffed head, even for a 2 oz. sample in a plastic cup. The body is hazy but it still manages to glow.

S-Interesting nose. The yeast, in accordance with the chipper malt unique hoppiness makes for a nice scent. The veggies are a mixture of Euro noble hops and intricate, bold U.S. varieties if I were to guess.

T-Hoppy and multifaceted. Yeasty and spicy with a great, airy, sweetened cracker malt. The hops are neat. Pineapple hops, citrus with a certain tangy element, and some grass. Pretty cool.

M-Drinks easy. Maybe a bit too aggressive on the carbonation. Slick feel. A bit resinous and moderately bitter.

O/D-It had some great elements but for some reason I wasn't very enamored with it. There was a ton to enjoy here but I oddly didn't find myself enjoying it as a whole.
