3.35/5  rDev -16%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Pours dark orange with a white fluffy head that sticks around

S: A strong hoppy character, a grassy/earthy sort of hop with hints of spice and a bit of a sweet malt backbone.

T: A grassy hoppiness at first, moving into an earthy, muddy aftertaste. Pretty one note.

O: This one is okay, but I would stick with IPAs instead.

On tap at Bar Pink in North Park

A: Hazy dark golden color with a big fluffy white head.

S: Fairly light aroma with some chalky yeast, a bit of candi sugar and some lemon zest.

T: Fairly dry with some notes of clove and a slight bit of banana. Some grassy hop resin creeps in on the finish.

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.
