A- poured a cloudy light gold with about two fingers of foamy white head. Head dissipates down to about a half finger and leaves thick lacing.

S- interesting citrus and spice blend. Citrus reminds me of grapefruit and lemon.

T-the belgian yeast definitely comes through. It tastes like a very hopped Saison, with the fruity esters and the hoppy citrus balanced quite well against the malt backbone.

M- hints of carbonation and a little thinner in feel.

O- a really good, albeit very different IPA than the usual.
