3.31/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: poured a deep slightly cloudy amber. Very little head to speak of

S: sweet and yeasty not the greatest

T: I get the yeasty wheat beer taste upfront then some spicy notes and finally the dry hops hit at the end. Overall it's not a bad combination. Tastes better as it warmed up I feel

M: crisp and a bit too much carbonation for me but not bad.

O: I honestly am not familiar with this style so really have no base with which to compare. It was an ok beer although its not something I would return to again and again. Still it was really interesting and fans of this style may enjoy.

3.83/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - cloudy yellowish orange with a thin lacing of white head

S - Belgian yeast, heavy spices, herbal

T - herbal, spices, faint malt, mildly bitter, some alcohol in the finish

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a decent BIPA. There is a nice herbal hop character here which makes this pretty enjoyable. Unfortunately, this beer is simple and borders on boring after a while. It's definitely a nice addition to the heavy seas line-up, but this isn't a beer I would visit often.
