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

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a one finger head tha has reduced to a puffy layer. It is a golden orange color with a hazy clarity and signs of carbonation coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: yeasty goodness and super hops aroma. Spiciness from the yeast and lots of citrus from the hops. Bready and sweet malts along with grassy and pungent hop aromas too. Very funky aroma wth a lot going on here.

Taste: hops are up front here. Citrus, pineapple, and pine that leave a lingering bitterness in the beer. Picking up some banana and bready malts too. Spiciness and some belgian characteristics follow. Very interestingly tasty.

Mouthfeel: smooth, a little chewy, full bodied, medum carbonation, a little dry, and a lingering bitterness.

Overall: A good offering by GF to the BIPA style. Super hops up front that leave a lingering bitterness, but the beer did get better as it warmed up. Hops could be toned down a bit or just add a bit more sweetness,which in turn will add more alcohol to the beer. The alcohol is veyr well hidden too.
