4.21/5  rDev +6%

Pours pale golden in color with a good white head that retains nicely.

Smell is very fruity. Aromas of orange and lemon zest tropical fruit nectarine and a piney hop resin all blend in the nose at once. Some bready doughy malt aromas follow.

Taste follows the nose with citrus hops first to hit the tounge with more flavors of orange zest, crisp lemon and a piney oily hops. Mid section is moderately sweet and compliments the crisp citrus flavors nicely.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a sticky sweet presence, lots of hop oils and resin and a slightly dry crisp finish.

Draft tulip at Endgrain. Thanks to Thomas for sharing this one!
Described by the brewers as an imperial Belgian IPA.

Dark saturated golden orange. Thin cap of foam, drippy arcs of lace around the glass.

Aroma was citrusy, more prevalent hop character, mild clove and minor Belgian IPA spice.

Creamy feel with a big citrusy taste, light spiciness and bitterness that lingered into the dry aftertaste. Juicy citrus and earthy hop character dominated. Will have to give it a second try in the near future.

Pours a pale, clear, bright gold. Nice head that quickly recedes to a thin film. Smells like Belgian yeast and tropical fruit. Taste is big citrus up front that moves into a nice, crisp bitterness on the back end. As I'm sipping this, I can't believe this is a 10% ABV beer. Doesn't drink like it at all as the alcohol is well hidden. Beer is medium bodied, not too heavy. Extremely refreshing. Try it!
