Slightly hazy orange amber. Served in a shaker pint with about a finger of creamy beige head. Good lacing. Aroma starts with a bit of pale malt before turning floral and slightly spicy with a little orange blossom as well. Taste is toasty with lighter orange citrus hops. Mild to moderate bitterness. Appropriate carbonation. Medium bodied. A very nice beer.

On tap at Twenty Tap. Poured a very light copper with good head and good lacing. Nice floral scent with hints of clover and honey, nice sweet malt undertone. Very nice taste, good malt sweetness with nice citrus and floral hop finish, along with a slight clover, honey, and spiciness as it warms up. Went down very nicely, easily drinkable.

On-tap at Brugge.

A - Pours a clear golden yellow, white frothy head, spotty lace, thin collar, and some wisps on top.

S - A nice big dose of hops and light on the malts. Pretty much a straight forward IPA with nothing out of the ordinary. Some grass, citrus and pine are the hoppy notes that come out on the nose.

T - Again, hoppy bitterness, citrus, pine. No real malty sweetness, which I prefer. The hop bill is just right for me, not a palate-bruiser but not sweet. Finish is bitter grassy notes.

M - Light, good carbonation, oily finish.

O - An enjoyable and straight-forward take on an American IPA. This is a new brew for Brugge, and I'm glad to see this one on the tap list. I'd definitely have again, if I had the chance.
