A big thanks to the captain of all things canned, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, spices. Taste is of hops, yeast, some spices, citrus, good flavor. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Served in a tulip glass at the brewpub.

According to the menu, this Belgian IPA was dry-hopped with Citra hops. Right on. It pours a lightly-hazy ruby-amber topped by a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises orange peel, grass, very light biscuit, and a twinge of clove-like spiciness. The taste brings in more of the same, with the orange peel/grass-heavy hops shining through all the way. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slightly drying finish. Overall, a nice little BIPA, nothing that'll rock your world, especially in terms of Belgian-ness, but a tasty brew nonetheless.
