look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Hazy golden-amber body with an exceptionally attractive and creamy, durable head.

S:Smells sweet and fruity with light pepper. Spicy hops and Belgian yeast dominate.

T: Earthy and fruity with plenty of hops, as expected given that this is an APA with Belgian yeast. The Belgian side come out properly with some spicy attributes form the yeast.

M: Medium body; lacks smoothness. Rather high carbonation is too high and contributes to a mild tongue bite; nicely dry.

O: An Americanized BPA with citrus hops; works fairly well but is more promising than polished.

Pours a hazy, golden/copper color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, yeast, hint of caramel malt, and a hint of alcohol. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. Fits the style of a Belgian Pale Ale. Tastes of sweet malt, hops, yeast, caramel malt, hint of pine, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, low in complexity and not well blended.

On tap at McNellies in OKC served in one of their 14 oz "pint" glasses. Orange-gold body with a thin cap of white foam that drops some nice lace. Herbal hops on the nose with a backing of spicy Belgian yeast. Palate follows the same theme. A pop of coarse herbal hops followed by some coriander and white pepper spiciness. Slight lingering bitterness, mild biscuit flavor. Pretty well balanced. Not a punch in the mouth of hops but more along the lines of a well-hopped Belgian pale, think a tamer and less rustic version of De Ranke XX Bitter. Well excecuted.

12oz bottle served in a Southern Tier tulip

A - Hazy golden color with a 2 finger head. Average retention and zero lacing.

S - Lemon and grapefruit, herbal leafy hops, earthy pine, floral, spicy Belgian yeast, doughiness comes out as it warms.

T - Starts off with a grapefruit pithy citrus bitterness leading into spicy Belgian yeast, green herbs an pine resin coat the tongue. The malt is hidden underneath the aggressive hops. Finishes slightly astringent with coarse grapefruit and pine bitterness. There's almost a cocoa aftertaste.

M - Medium body, moderate smooth carbonation, bone dry finish

I didn't get the Belgian character that I was hoping for. The hops seems to choke out the rest of the flavors. My prostate says thanks for all those hops!
