12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A nice looking golden amber color with a white one-finger head. Nice bubbles and lacing.
It all goes downhill from here.

S- offensively bitter and sour yet sweet and caramel malty. I tried to find the spices and citrus and grass that I read about but failed.

T- I love hops but this beer simply killed my tastebuds until the very last second of each sip, just then did I pick up it's Belgian IPA
dry wheat and grain flavors.

M- it's carbonated and oily, but it sucks the life out of my mouth, the same way a tart lemon does.

O- this beer is too over the top for me. Note to brewer- tone it down so the flavor has a chance.

Pours a clean amber, with a solid if unremarkable head of white bubbles. Attractive treeline lace.

Nose seems spicy and fruity, with a touch of floral hops. Intriguing!

Taste is spicy, with definite notes of citrus hoppiness. Nary a hint of the relatively high ABV (8.3%). This is a well-done spicy, hoppy Belgian-style IPA that's worth revisiting.

Enjoyed in a tulip glass

A: pours a medium golden color which is nicely clear with a slight amber hue and an ample amount of carbonation bubbles working their way up to the head which is two fingers thick and pure white with a slight yellow note and lingers beautifully, the character of the head is very light and fluffy, leaves
S: very nice grassy hop notes, like wet grass after a summer storm, also has a nice bready character from the belgian background which i would compare to a sort of sweet bread or the french baguette from paneras
T: quite nice, dont find much of the belgian characteristics in the taste that i has seen in the nose, im definitely picking up a bit of an artificial sour note like green apples, there is a nice hop character but its not citrusy or even grassy as i had seen in the nose, im not really sure how to describe it other than as a bitter hop note
M: medium carbonation tingle, leaves the mouth feeling noticably dry, stings a bit on the underside of the tongue,
O: i was impressed by everything up until the taste, the sour note i described above just doesnt fit with the style or really help to make it a drinkable beer at all, i know this beer gets much praise in the community but im not seeing it here, i plan on trying it again soon to figure out if i found a bad bottle or if im just not aclimated to the taste notes
