Served in the bottle and poured into a DT-branded snifter.

A: Transparent orange with a very large head that never fully dissipates. Froth sticks around on the sides of the snifter throughout.

S: At first, there isn't much of a smell, as the head is in the way. After drinking a few sips and shrinking the head, a strong citrus smell is present with hints of grain.

T: Much like the nose, there is a strong citrus taste with slight grain notes. There is a pleasant, bitter finish which is mimicked by the aftertaste.

M: Very light and heavily carbonated. Feels close to seltzer water. Very refreshing.

O: Great balance of complexity and drinkability. I really enjoyed this and would certainly drink it again.

A - Low in carbonation. Literally had it from the bottle so maybe I am missing out on the appearance and possibly taste.

S - Citrus sweet smell. Nothing out of the ordinary or particular.

T - This is where everything that was hyped about the beer sort of fell apart for me. The initial taste is everything a good Belgian Pale Ale should be. Where it falls off is literally a drop off in that taste. From citrus to nothing. If there is an after taste, it is extremely subtle.

M - Again the low carbonation matches the lack of after taste. It is pleasant, but somewhat fizzles out.

O - It really isn't a bad beer, but for the same price I would recommend a Duvel. I am not the biggest fan of IPAs, its just there has to be some sort of hoppy aftertaste in my beer else I compare it to an adjunct-lager.

Again I had it from the bottle, so this review has some bias.
