3.74/5 rDev -12.2%
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.

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.

32 oz. growler from the brewery into a goblet
Produces a low white head with the pour, the beer itself a fully hazed golden yellow in color. Lemon and grapefruit hop notes on the nose with peppery saison yeast, both fairly assertive. Crisp, clean malts. Lemongrass. Apricot. Tangerine. Light-medium in body with a lively carbonation. Crisp malt body, lots of lemon, yeasty pepper, and grapefruit on the palate. Finishes fully bitter with yeasty spice, lingering long. A nice blend of spicy saison and american hops, with lemon and yeast playing a big role.

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.

Screw-top growler received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Aliza!
First stein pours with a 1 1/2" off-white head over the cloudy golden brew. Head holds on and on, with sporadic chunky lacing. Aroma is pine and spicy yeast.
Taste starts sweet and lightly tart, soft in the middle, with a moderate bitter close. Mouthfeel is very smooth, with drinkability is oh-so easy. Glad I have a growler of this one...
