Color- apricot gold and hazy. Full head.
Aroma- Hoppy yet gentle with an earthy apple basket aroma.
Taste- A rich buttery delight! Starts with a buttery hoppiness hint of pluat (plum-apricot hybrid) finishing with a smooth as silk citrus hop medley.
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 4/6/2013.
Serving type: bottle

3.89/5 rDev +6.3%

(on tap at Free Bridge Wine & Spirits - served in a fat tulip glass - apparently the keg is from the original run of this beer, Feb 2013, and had been stored in their cooler the whole time)
A: thick, creme-colored foam with a krausen-like texture and build - took awhile to pour because of it... fairly clear, lightly-orange gold hue... sudsy bands of lace... quite attractive altogether
S: lightly cinnamon-spicy, clementine, earthy floral undertone, vaguely rosé vinous-ness... quite interesting - not typical IPA aromas
T: mild leafy, tea-like hop flavor and similar lightly-tannic bitterness up front... smooth, rounded, wort-ish malt in the middle... wondering how much the hops have tamed down over time... I do get the (honeydew) melon rind Sam mentions highlighting the edges... but this beer, though balanced, is mostly malt here with uncommon herbal hop flourishes... it's nice
M: relatively thickish, dextrinous body - but not crazy viscous or anything of the sort... reading now that it contains a portion of wheat, I'm wondering what % of the total bill and how much it plays into the texture - the hop resins could have some influence as well... in other words, this was not the least bit crisp or light
O: definitely something a bit different... the earthy, leafy flavors are something I really dig - in that respect, perhaps I could view this as sort of a creative variation on or rich, stronger version of a British bitter
Serving type: on-tap
