look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a nice gold with just a slight haze. Forms a big fluffy white head atop medium visible carbonation.

S: Belgian fruity esters (grape, pear, banana) with light cracker malt, some funk, and only hints of grassy hops.

T: The Belgian characteristics dominate the palate. Light malts, sweet fruity yeast esters with some citrus hops near the end. Mild pine bitterness in the hang.

M: Light body, moderate alcohol presence, and a healthy dose of carbonation sensation.

O: I'm torn here. It seems to be a pretty decent Belgian pale ale, but doesn't follow through on the promise of the IPA character. Not bad though.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, hops, spices. Taste is lots of spice, hops, citrus, some malts, more spice, a lot going on here. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is a solid beer worth checking out.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served a golden yellow colored brew with a big thick and billowy white head. The head fades slowly over time to give a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a hay like and slightly funky aroma. Mixed with these are some smells of a bready malt as well as a herbal and citrus grapefruit hop aroma mixed with some sweeter tangerine and spice notes of clove and coriander as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor mixed with a slightly citrus sweet flavor of tangerine and some caramel. As the flavor advances some flavors of yeast and spice flavors of clove as well as some orange and grapefruit citrus come to the tongue. Toward the end of the taste, the flavor takes on some stronger flavors of a haylike and grassy taste as well as a more funky like flavor of the “farmhouse” variety. The flavors at the end, all combine to leave a nicely hopped and rather funked and slightly bitter malty flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is on the slightly above average side. The thickness was nice for the more grassy, hay, and yeasty characteristics of the beer while not being too light for the malt backbone and the abv for the brew. The carbonation was quite nice for the funky flavors as well and made for a rather nice drinker overall.

Overall – A rather pleasant drinking Farmhouse IPA. It had a nice blend of the funk and hop to make for a good and tasty drinking brew.

Golden child in color with a small white head thats airy and fades quickly. It's quite aromatic.
Aroma smells all farmhouse, tart and sour and funky oh my.
Tastes decent with a tart and dry bitter finish. Has a bit of spiciness running through it too.
There is a very sutle hop profile weaving in there too. Leaning towards citrus or tropical.
In the aftertaste there is sutle phenolic taste along with a sharp dryness.
Pretty good tasting though I would need time to aquire a taste for it.
