Fruity and flavorful. Bitter hoppiness. A bit of sugar and rye. Tasty and complex.

22oz bottle $4.49. I think this must have been mispriced by the Whole Foods in Hillcrest but I wasn't complaining. Golden yellow-orange, good lacing. Aroma was esters, yeast, hops. Flavor was fruity, hoppy, Belgian yeast. Overall I wouldn't exactly call this a double IPA by any stretch of the imagination but it was hoppy. This is an odd style anyway but I would probably buy this again especially if it was $4.49.
