Pours into my tulip glass golden with a pink hue. Large rocky frothy off white head surges, falls and leaves sheaths of lace
Scent is fruity, sweet and heady. grapefruit hops. tropical fruits.
taste is similar. sweet citrus and tropical fruit. pineapple, grapefruit, mango. there's a subtle pine flavor that comes out here and there. honey and toasty bread. lightly sour and musty flavors. spicy notes. can discern white pepper but not sure what else. definitely has aspects of both an American IPA and a Belgian ale. Nice bitter finish.
Mouth is a coating medium. Juicy on the sides of the tongue and dryly bitter with a slight warming in the throat.
Drinkability is very good and high abv is hidden well.
Wasn't sure what to expect from a hybrid IPA / Belgian style beer but the end result is absolutely delicious. Lots going on but still manages to be relatively subtle and very easy to drink.
