Well-executed across the boards - pours golden with a faint haze, a few fingers of fizzy foam on top. Orchard-like aromas of flowers and citrus fruits, subtler impressions of lightly sweet caramel malt grains. Taste reveals a distinct Belgian approach - yeasty tingle and tang ride a clean malt bill... Hops assert over time, bringing the Belgian-like qualities into their fold. Medium on the tongue, ample carbonation - soft and citrusy elements wash over the tongue. Quality drinking. Bridges the pale Belgian and American Imperials nicely.

Nice pour and thick head looks pretty in the glass, decent retention. fruity scent with notes of citrus and pine. taste is similar with strong but not overpowering hop bitterness. Surprisingly drinkable for 8%. Overall I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure I would buy again because there are better options at that price.

A bit one-dimensional flavor profile as just hoppy. Not crushingly hoppy by any means though.
