Poured from a growler (filled @ 16 Tons Union Cafe for Base Camp for Beer Fanatics event) into Deschutes Tulip
A - Pours a brilliant hazy golden rod w/ 1 finger pure white head that fades to a med density cap and leaves great lacing
S - Smells of citrus zest, coriander and orange, lemons and grapefruits, herbal notes, peppery, hay, honestly it smells like a Saison w/ the Dupont strain, kind of tart.
T - Taste mirrors the nose, citrus fruits, pepper and clove, pears, grapefruit, tangy/zippy, herbs and spices, basil, tart, light tropical notes in the back end.
M - Light, crisp, dry, bitter grapefruit finish, zippy and tangy, fizzy bubbles.
O - Very impressed, great marriage of IPA and Belgian Esters, lots of citrus, herbs, spices, hops, very complex, refreshing, and enjoyable, had to have a second pour.

on tap at Punch Bowl Social, Portland
Haxy lemon with white film.
Wit nose heavy on the lemon.
Saltines, lemon curd, big yeasty bite, and lemon hops to end.
Wheaty finish and dry waxy linger.
Light, oily, round.
For all the talk of a new style, very wit-y. Cascade and Citra, but they are mostly missing, or let’s say I’ve had hoppier Belgians. Falls between two stools, badly.
Serving type: on-tap
