Poured into a dogfish nonic glass.
Nice amber to copper appearance with a tannish head that leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass.
Aroma faint citrus notes but more earthy to herbal hop smell. Toasted to roasted malts. Hint of spice?
Taste is not as hoppy as I would have expected. Hint of fruit, citrus, almost a yeast ester undertone. Apricot or peach like hint afterward. Herbal taste to the hops. Not incredibly bitter though. Lighter than expected.
Mouthfeel - Nice slightly prickly carbonation but refreshing. Does have a nice lasting aftertaste. Smooth.
Overall a good beer. Definitely a nice spring beer. Seems to be a little less IPA and a little more belgian but definitely worth a try on a warm spring day.

A - Copper color with slight haze, small white head, extensive lacing.
S - Fairly muted, flat hop notes, malts in the form of pilsner coming through loud and clear.
T - Hop is mostly in the form of grass notes. A mild fruity note coupled with a cracker and grain malt hit. Turns bitter on the close, illustrating the serious hopping.
M - Given how bitter the turn is on the close, it is surprising how crisp the feel is. There is a gradual build, though, and it does burden the beer a bit you move into the second 6 oz.
O - This hybrid beer promises fruit, but though I think it is a decent IPA - nothing special, mind, but fairly clean and thoroughly hopped - the fruit is mostly lost. The only hint to its presence is a certain sweetness in the middle. Supporting role, indeed.
