Served from a 12 oz. Bottle.
A: Very very light. The beer is light gold in color - honestly it looks more like a belgian wit than a belgian IPA.
S: The smell is a lot of banana - smells slightly hoppy with a strong hit of wit profile. Nice smell - not sure It is what I typically expect of a belgian IPA but nice.
T: Similar to the smell. The beer is definitely belgian - not too hoppy; however, it has a nice clove/banana bread profile. A nice belgian, but not as strong as I expect of a Belgian IPA. Tastes more like a Belgian Wit or Belgian Pale if you stretch it.
M: Really nicely carbonated - easily drinkable and possibly the best part of the beer.
Serving type: bottle

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
