look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A- Light orange, golden color. Poured a nice creamy 1 finger head. Dissipated pretty quickly into nothing.
S- Tropical fruit, pine, grapefruit, caramel, earthy aromas, a little dank and some floral.
T- Sweet grapefruit, caramel, tropical fruit, and honey up front. Followed by nice pine, orange and lemon rind over a noticeable malt backbone. Finish is sweet and slightly bitter.
M- On the lighter side of medium. Oily and slick on the tongue. Nice drying finish.
O- This was a damn good beer. It was very well balanced with a nice complexity. I will be having this many more times to come.

A 12oz bottle picked up as a 6 pack.

A - Golden yellow, with clarity and 1 finger of head and nice sticky lace left on the glass

S - Belgian yeast and hops. Nice combo for sure.

T - A hopped up belgian ale. Grapefruit, candy (but not too sweet..just right), and tons of dank hops. Excellent!

M - Highly carbonated, sizzles in your mouth.

O - Sweetwater nails this belgian IPA. Glad to have a new seasonal. A very close cousin to their IPA but with a belgian yeast strain. Great brew!

Pours a beautiful clear amber with some white head. Hoppy aroma has a strong citrus undertone, more Mandarin orange than grapefruit. Flavor is monumentally hoppy and has a bold sour citrus tone, as much grapefruit as Mandarin orange. Texture is quite fizzy so you feel it inside you as it heads downstairs. This is one whiplash you will be glad you got!
