Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass canned on 4/17/17. Pours a dark orange with a solid two finger sticky white head that leaves behind plenty of lace.

Smell is clove, apricot, tangerine, lemon, and grapefruit rind.

Taste follows clove, apricot, tangerine, hard candy apple, biscuit, and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel is a big medium, plenty of carbonation, almost sticky, a tad dry, and excellent drinkability at 8.5% ABV.

Overall this is a nice beer, for me it taste like a Belgian IPA, tgat being said more IPA than Belgian. Nice brew, thanks @jzeilinger for this can.

Pours a copper color with a half finger of head. The nose is earthy and dank. The dankness is also the feature of the flavor profile but some citrus notes also poked through. The hop bitterness is a bit muted and there is also a slight presence of alcohol on the finish.

Canned: 4/17/17

A - Pours a copper amber color, nice clarity, thin dense lacing, very light carbonation.

S - Candied tropical fruit aroma, pungent and sharp citra grapefruit, some herbal, light biscuit.

T - Resiny, lemon, orange, red grapefruit, delicate herbal, orange and grapefruit rind bittersweet finish with a little bit of peppery spice mixed in. Lingering tropical bitter sweetness.

M - Heavy medium body with a slightly thin finish on the very back end, very dry on the back of the palate.

O - Wish I lived more proximal to Al's but with this, would have been perfectly content with one, maybe two cans instead of having to buy an entire sixer for $18 to try it.
