You smell the typical Belgian yeast with some floral and citrus in there as well. The hops come in with a crisp bite of citrus which evolves into the belgian yeast honey malt and then as the bitterness from the hops evolves there is a burst of citrus flavors as well.

It's a great Belgian IPA and ranks with the best I've had for sure. Its like if the Latitude 48 had Belgian yeast in it and a less maltier backbone. The taste really resonates and leaves a great refreshing aftertaste. The spices of the Belgian yeast definitely aren't overdone and my favorite is that the hops really shine through at the end. Belgian IPA's aren't my favorite style but this definitely one of the best ones I've tried.
