look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from tap into Tulip.

Appearance: Clear copper-amber with nice off white head.

Smell: Quite hoppy with grapefruit, tropical fruit and some spiciness. Biscuit, clove and banana as well.

Taste: Similar to the aroma with a biscuit malt backing and nice clove and banana yeast undercurrent. Nice layer of tropical hops on top with mild bitterness and spiciness.

Feel: Moderately high carbonation with a relatively light body. Nice dry finish.

Overall: Very nice borderline Belgian IPA. Refreshing and complex.

Serving type: on-tap

Everything about this beer screams quality. The color is a slightly orange golden with a perfect tall off white head that lasted and clung. The smell is mild citrus mixed with that classic Belgian aroma that is not at all over powering. The taste is again citrusy hop and malt. Finished just about in the middle of sweet and dry The bottle promises perfect balance and they have delivered on the promise. There is a slight alcohol warmth too that adds to the medium body of the mouth feel. One of my new favorites. I think this will be on the table for Thanksgiving dinner.

4.13/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured chilled in oversize glass

A: hazy copper-peach color; very buoyant head (4 finger); great carb action
S: pleasant, persistent hoppy smell; a tinge of yeast aroma comes through, but it's mostly about the hops
T: very flavorful; as promised, it combines Belgian and pale ale elements, with a sour yeasty profile most prominent; also includes the requisite overtones of pear, banana; aftertaste veers toward the sour and bitter; complex flavor and the alcohol comes through clearly (despite the modest ABV)

An excellent beer, overall

Serving type: bottle
