3.84/5  rDev +5.8%

12 oz bottle stamped with a drink by date of 5/15/14.

A: The body is a light yellow color, with a slightly hazy appearance. white fizzy head, receded fast, lacing is significant.

S: Wet grass with a distinct citrus note. Slight piney hoppiness.

T: Hop flavor is pronounced, piney and citrusy. Some spice, not really defined. Finishes clean, slightly bitter. Aftertaste is defined by a crisp hop note, but not bitter.

M: Feels Belgian: smooth and slightly creamy with a medium feel, light carbonation.

O: Refreshing beer. Today was pretty warm, and the evening is still unseasonably above average, this beer just feels right with it. Nice rendition of a Belgian IPA.

This one goes into my glass with a 2 finger white head, semi hazed golden apricot body with fine speckled lacing as the head fades. Aromatics bring out spicy yeast notes, citrus peel, herbal/citric hop combo this one actually tastes quite nice with the first sip thoroughly enjoyed. Hints of tangerine, oranges on the palate bitter spicy yeast components citric hop bitterness and flavor combine with some coriander spice and wit characteristics along with elements of a decent IPA. Mouthfeel finishes dry and bitter between hops and the spice mix, medium bodied sturdy carbonation it really works for me. I'm a fan so easy to drink very refreshing great mix of different styles offered in some of Harpoon's mixed packs.

3.54/5  rDev -2.5%

From the 12 fl. oz bottle stamped: 31109A1621705. Sampled on February 2, 2014.

The pour is a kind of olive-pale yellow with some cloudiness to the end. A small white fizzy head dissolves quickly.

The aroma is grassy with orange and other citrus notes with a slight zestiness to it. Hops are more in the background than I might expect from an IPA or any style.

The body is medium but also creamy and smooth.

The taste also highlights the zesty citrus character with some vague spices and a quickly lingering dry finish.
