Pours to the glass with a good strong head that clumps down the sides and fills the glass with a cloudy orange, fizzing offering.
I am smelling pine, clove and yeasty aromas. The flavor of fruit and spice, grapefruit and lemon with a warm finish.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 330ml bottle purchased from a random bottle shop in Ghent, Belgium.

APPEARANCE – Cloudy golden yellow color w/ a very thick off white head that dissipates quickly leaving nice lacing.

SMELL – Spicy and sweet malts w/ faint hop aroma lurking in the background.

TASTE – Light spicy hop flavor w/ a bit of an alcohol burn and a long lasting bitter finish.

MOUTHFEEL – Strong carbonation that accentuates the spicy hop flavor.

OVERALL – A enjoyable beer, not a hop bomb or standard West Coast IPA, but one that I’d buy again if in a pinch while looking for an IPA.
