Bottled 10/15/14
Poured into a tulip glass.

A- Medium copper, high clarity, two finger white head.

S- Passion fruit and bubblegum, bit of Belgian yeast spice character.

T- Similar to aroma but with add medium-high bitterness. Passion fruit, papaya, bubblegum, bit of clove, pine, nice level of sweetness, some Belgian IPAs are too sweet but not this one.This year's batch seems more Belgian yeast forward than last year's.

M- Medium, good level of carb.

O- Best Belgian IPA that I've had. Most are either not hoppy enough or too yeast or too sweet. This one has a great balance of all three. One of Short's best offerings.
