Excellent series of lace rings after each sip. Small head. Gold color with a mild haze.

Initial smell is of fresh tilled earth. A bit of Belgian yeast as well.

Rather thin with a high level of carbonation. The flavor is a bit harsh and biting. There's a sour start to the taste, but it morphs into singularly bitter white pepper flavor that continues through the aftertaste.

A: Th beer is hazy yellow in color and poured with a finger and a half high frothy bright white head that has very good retention properties and hardly died down.
S: Light to moderaate aromas of floral and herbal hops are present in the nose along with slight bits of funk.
T: The bitterness really stands out in the taste of this beer, which is similar to to the smell, and the bitterness lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems to be very bitter for a Belgian IPA.
