P: A body of glistening gold and excited carbonation holding up a mountain of white meringue head. Retention is great a collapses around the sides leaving behind thick and sticky lacing while maintaining a high throne of dense pillowy clouds in the middle.
S: Fresh soaked wheat, crisp citrus hop notes, subtle farmhouse funk yeast, and spices. Smell is super crisp and powerfully fresh. Delicate but pronounced. Once warmed the alcohol is much like a sting to the nose which is not great.
T/M: Taste follows the nose but has a nice dose of floral hops to balance out the sweet and the spice. Earthy flavors of sun dried grains, summer flowers, orange rind bitterness complimented by clove and a timid peppery bite. Light-medium body with gentle carbonation that creates a refreshing delight. Finish is dry with orange rind and very very mild pine oil.
O: Refreshing and clean this is truly a great summer beer that is easy to drink and really enjoyable. The bitterness is pronounced but not too overpowering. This is a great mix of farmhouse and IPA I'm glad I grabbed this up and will probably purchase more soon.

Pours a hazy pale orange with a one finger white head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma has pears, Belgian yeast, citrus, cloves, and pale malts.
The taste is more bitter than I would have expected and has citrus, citrus zest, pepper, phenols, Belgian yeast, pale malts, and cloves. The proportions of the ingredients do not seem to be ideal, and this beer kind of seems like it was just thrown together, without much thought be given as to how it would turn out. Each sip seems to start sweet, and finishes overly bitter, with a good deal of citrus zest.
Medium bodied with above average carbonation, and an overly bitter finish. A decent beer, but if falls short of the best Belgian IPAs.
