22 oz. bottle served in a FFF teku glass. Batch #15.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with some light amber hues. A one finger pure white head forms on the pour and recedes to a nice hefty collar. Soapy lace is left down the glass.

S: Nice spicy Belgian yeast. Some light peppercorn and citrus peel flavors are there and the hop backing is nicely integrated some mild fruit, a little grass and some citrus flesh.

T: Nice peppery Belgian yeast is upfront just like the nose. Peppercorn spiciness and flowery esters are there with some pithy bitterness and fruit rind. The fruity hops flavors are there in the finish with mild hay like grassiness and a nice bready malt bill to balanced it out.

M: Medium bodied with a nice semi-prickly carbonation level with a yeasty, drying finish paired with some malty sweetness and fruity hop bitterness.

O: A very balanced and delicious take on the style. I would like a little more hops, but it was nice none the less. A great refreshing beer! Chalk up another great beer for the boys at Pipeworks.

22 oz bomber, batch number 15, poured into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a slightly hazy pale golden color, topped with two fingers of creamy white head, good retention and lacing.

S- Lots of spice and pepper, some crispy pear and other fruit, grassy, juicy hops, some bready yeastiness.

T- Really nice smooth yeast flavor, lots of spice and some pepper, some crispy pear and apple. Bitterness is firm but not overpowering, hops lend some grassy and citrus/fruit notes. Booze is well-hidden.

M- Medium body and carbonation, has a very smooth, silky feel, dry finish.

O- A nice beer, one of the better Belgian-style IPA's I've had.

22 oz bottle poured into a Half Acre tulip.

A- pours a bright golden color with.a 2 finger frothy white head. Huge clumps of lacing stick to the glass. Nice amount of bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass.

S- slight funk, lots of spicy hop let's and some caramel and bread.

T- starts off slightly sweet and then the spices and piney hop bitterness take over. Grassy dankness at the finish.

M- medium body, higher carbonation. Pretty dry beer with a similar finish.

O- good beer. I have probably drank 100 x more American ipa's than Belgians so it's not a go to style for me. Also, some others I have had more recently have more Weiss notes, where this is more spice and bitterness.

Bright golden orange with a froth of white foam on top that leaves a little bit of lace in the glass. Clarity is bright

The label says American hops, the nose is very Nelson Sauvin, full of lemony tea, field greens, and fresh fruit. Lush and fruity, with notes of pear and white pepper from the Belgian yeast.

A light sweetness at first with lots of citric fruit, pink grapefruit and orange, something almost tropical about it. Nice complimentary yeast that lends some esters and spice to the mix. Moderately bitter aftertaste, balancing the light sweetness upfront. A hint of malt in the middle, but this is a showcase of how well the hops and yeast dance together. Lighter feel, creamy, drying in the finish with a pleasant aftertaste of fruit and light pepper. Good stuff, will definitely look for more of before it's gone.
