Poured from 12 oz. bottle into Delirium Tremens Chalice.

A: Head is a 2 finger white fluff. Dissipates into sticky less fluffy head. Lacing good. Head is retained for quite some time. Hazy and orange in color.

S: Light yeast. Light grass to floral notes. Citrus is present. Wood. Hay

T: Belgian yeasts. Candi sugar. Grassy tones. Waxy Belgian warmth. FANTASTIC.

M: Soft like champagne. Light and fluffy yet still full bodied.

O: One of the most complex yet simple tastes I have had from the region. As my last name is "Hommell" (from the root Hommel) I might have bumped it up a point. However, this beer is absolutely fantastic.

Simply Awesome . . .Nice Big Head with a crystal clear straw hue.

Awesome hop characteristics and mouthfeel.

Best Belgian IPA I've had to date. Belgian Notes are nicely balanced and not too overpowering.

Even has characteristics of really Hoppy German Pils which I love.

Highly recommended
