Beer on draft at Churchkey DC, beer is reddish with a mild haze to it, good head of small bubbles, lots of lacing, moderate to low carbonation, nice retention, loving it.

The yeast and the hops are well balanced in this one. I think I would have guessed it was a Belgian IPA when sampling this. Piny mostly with a nice bouquet of esters.

Beer is thinner than I was expecting and a little sweeter in the front. The bitterness is moderate and the overall beer is good. The esters in the midpalate really fill this out well. Overall, this is a good Belgian IPA, not a great one but I'd have it again perhaps.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is slightly hazy, and appears a light sunburst / copper hue. The white head hangs out for a few minutes, leaving a decent bit of lacing on the snifter as it recedes.

The aroma is of hops, spices, yeast, light citrus and floral notes. It smells like a Belgian IPA.

The flavor follows suit, with everything well balanced. Nice crisp carbonation and lingering aftertaste of hops and yeast.

Overall, a decent beer. I'd have it again.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a snifter.

Pours a light copper color with a solid white head that lasts for quite a bit of time. Quite a bit of white lacing on the way down. The nose is sweet with a lot of summer fruit plus floral and tropical hops. There's some citrus in there as well. A bit of yeasty spice. The flavor hits tropical, citrus, and floral hop notes. Everything is combined quite well. Some yeast, but not much. I won't fault them too much, as the flavor is really nice and I don't think this needs too much from the yeast. Medium body and a quite bitter finish. Really solid.
