Pours light amber in color with a 2 finger offwhite head that has great retention. Tons of little carbonation bubble bubbling up from all over the glass.

Nose has a big hop precence, mainly orange and pinapple citrus notes. Belgian yeast has candy like notes to it, typical for pipeworks brews. Malt is grainy. Smells well balanced

Hops are foreword. Alot of the orange citrus hops pull through into the taste. Belgian yeast provides a very slight Spice that is accentuated by the butterness.Some alcohol is also present along with some grainy malt.

Mouthfeel is great, medium bodied with lots of carbonation and a lot of bitterness.

A: Gorgeous, gorgeous looking beer. The head on it is fantastic - dense, creamy, slightly gold tinged white with spectacular lacing - full even coating sticks to the glass. Towards the end of the bottle it gets much hazier to the point of opaque. Dank orange/gold in color.

S: Very interesting. Belgian spices come through - mint, clove, orange peel. Big American dank hops - musty overripe mango, pineapple - some orange juice. Lemon grass

T: Very bitter and full. Dank citrus, lemon, Belgian spice and yeast - gingerbread. Somehow juicy and dry

P: Fuller side of medium for the style. Coats the mouth, smooth carbonation.

O: This is an awesome beer that I have overlooked for too long, another great offering from PW

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance-
It straddles a golden Belgian with just a touch of hop hue that looks delicious.

Smell-
The Belgian yeast really makes a nice spicy appearance, but I find covers the hops more than I would like.

Taste-
Redemption from smell, the hops are citrus as the bottle promises. The spiciness rounds out the hops to an orange flavor, and a golden malt flavor at the end.

Mouthfeel-
Small crisp refreshing bubbles, with an oily coating of hop flavor afterwards.

Overall-
This is probably one of the best Belgian IPAs around. Hunt it down.
