3.11/5  rDev -19.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

22 ounce bottle - $5.98 at Sherlock's in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, light golden-orange body with a medium-sized, wispy, white head. Not much lacing.

Smell: Resinous spice with some upfront stingy alcohol wafts. Bready malts with a lightly sweet-scented sugar crust. Tropical fruit, citrus, a sprinkling of ground aspirin.

Taste: Bready malted barley, a sliver of pils, and some light brown sugar sweetness. Grapefruit, papaya, tangerine. Resinous and at the same time some peppy phenols, as well as some sting of the alcohol. Moderate bitterness. Sweetness drops out as the bitterness and spicy, alcoholic, fruitiness remains on the finish.

Mouthfeel: A little beyond medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's not as pesky as forgetting an online password.

Had on-tap at Avenue Pub New Orleans. Served in a cask glass.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/4 inch white head that doesn't retain long before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves a thin ring behind on the glass.

S- Big, bright citrusy hops come in and bring tropical fruit notes.

T- I've been waiting all day to get a taste of this and it's extremely satisfying. Fruity hop flavors rush in and ignite the palate creating a bittersweet sensation that's incredible. Just enough malt to balance out the intense hoppiness. Alcohol is noticed but not imposing.

M- Sharp and tangy as it should be. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- The Dank Tank Series never ceases to please me. Not sure why this one's classified as a BPA when it's really an IPA all the way...hey.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. No noticeable bottle date but this was just released within the past month or two. Served in a Sweetwater snifter.

Pours golden orange with a half finger of pale head. Head fades fairly quickly without lacing.

Smells of citrus hops, apples and sugar with just a hint of yeast.

Much more yeast in the flavor. Apple tinged funk, peaches, orange, peppercorn, rind, perhaps a hint of banana and some white sugar with ocassional nips of alcohol.

Oily and medium heavy with low to moderate carbonation. Estery tropical finish.

Seems to me that this is a Belgian IPA masquerading as a Belgian strong pale ale. Not bad, no matter what you call it.
