On tap on S.O.T.'s in Delaware. Great with a burger.

12oz can, canned 7/31/14, poured into a pint glass
A: Light orange with a solid 1+ finger head
S: Grapefruit, wheat, coriander
T: Matches the nose. This has more wheat/Belgian influence than hops, though I do get a bit of pine
M: Light to medium-bodied, a bit spicy
O: I like the combination of IPA styles, though it could use a touch more complexity

Poured out of a 12oz. can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden with about a 1/2'' head that lasted about a minute until it faded to a very thin layer over the beer. Lacing is pretty decent.

Smell: Very much like a wheat/hefeweizen. Very banana breadish with some floral notes. This is a Belgian IPA.

Taste: Very mild. Not much bitterness. Again the wheat/hefeweizen is there but with a more hoppy taste.

Mouthfeel: Very light and smooth.

Overall: Though not what I expected--my first Belgian IPA--, I enjoyed this beer. I would certainly not have a problem drinking this again.

Pours a crystal-clear light pale amber. 1/4" Bright white head fades to a white rim with a thin crust across the top of the glass. Visible small effervescence, and gobs of lacing left on the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Powerful grapefruit and resinous hops. Nice aroma. LEss malt in the background than even Fat Head's Headhunter.

Taste: Nice. This is a balanced IPA I can live with. Sweet, fruity arrival. Light maltiness with an earthy/yeasty taste across mid-palate, then a clean, hoppy finish.

Mouthfeel: Overall light sensation on the tongue. Slight, slight slickness.

Overall: This smells like an IPA but drinks like a wheat ale. Very much along the lines of a Bell's Oberon, but hoppier. Would definitely buy this again.
