I had this at The Porch in Virginia Beach.
A cloudy yellow beer, with nicely foamy head, and not too much protein thickness. Scantily laces down the glass.
Smells like fresh greeen hops. Reminds me of the stuff I've grown and brewed with, very woody and grassy.
The taste is a bit rough at first, but its very balanced and starts going down incredibly quick after some acclimation. The maltiness has a toasty character, reminds me of the first time I had Fat tire. Amazing how light it is to get this flavor. That toastiness really works with the character of the hops to tease out the finer flavors in them, which I would have guess weren;t there based on the aroma. Belgian spices bring it all together for an interesting finish.
The body was balanced, and I mentioned, incredibly drinkable. I'm not a fan of the trend of >7% IPAs, and I'm happy this one is bucking that trend.
I would drink this again.

Always a sucker for a beer with amazing carbonated action this built several inches of dense ivory colored foam. The body was bright yellow but a tad dingy.
Perfume, flower petals, roses, wheat, grains and a bit of honey touch the nose with a deliberate softness.
The flavor starts with honeysuckle and fresh peppercorns before it settles to a dry white wine, flower petals and light pear.
The feel is dry with a tangy sensation near the finish.
Nice, simple yet complex, but easy and light. Well done for the style.
