A- Pours a cloudy orange color with a 2 finger white head

S-Has a nice floral aroma up front. I am also catching some yeast and hops as well

T- HAs a nice yeasty flavor up front followed by a nice hop kick and then finish's with a belgium sweetness. I also catch a little of the alcohol on the end as well

M-Light bodied with decent carbonation

D-Overall this was a nice ipa.. i think id like to try more from this style. This was not my favorite beer by any means but i thought the yeasty and hoppy flavors had a nice balance . Give this beer a try.

I enjoyed this beer on tap.

A: beer was dark amber in color with a small head. Mild Lacing

S: The beer is floral. There was a slight citrus smell

T: rich, mouthful of hops feeling. Smooth with a good balance between hops and malt.

O: this is a great beer. Now one of my favorites. Well balanced and moderately priced.

Clear copper with a steady and slow stream of medium sized bubbles. Nice billowy head that settles down and sticks around the rim of the glass. Pretty good retention, somewhat spotty.

Smells wonderful: banana esters, grapefruit, pine trees. You get the piney hops in the taste and more of the grains and the citrus, with just a trace of that Belgian yeastiness. Finishes bitter with some lingering toffee-like sweetness.

Overall this is some really delicious nectar. I wish I had gotten more. I bought it because I’m curious about BIPAs. This one is definitely more on the IPA side than the Belgian side –mostly an IPA but with some Belgian-banana-smelling softness. Within the style, this is sort of opposite the White Birch Hooksett Ale from NH - that one is more Belgian-ey, less hoppy.
