Appearance: hazy, orange-gold color; thick pillowy white head

Aroma: nice citrus notes; hops; caramel; a little bready

Taste: I like this quite a bit; starts citrusy; moves into a pretty decent grain bill; hits the hops on the finish with some big yeast/bread flavors; slight citrus

Mouthfeel: medium bodied; kind of clingy; a little bright

Overall Impression: I like this quite a bit, a cool Belgian IPA; the big bread and yeast flavors make it really interesting, especially with the high citrus and decent hop bite; a cool beer, but certainly not a classic IPA and not a hop bomb

Nice balance among the hops and the earthy/funk from the yeast and the malt backbone. I'll look for this one again.

A: A muted medium amber in color with a light tan head which turns into a rocky pock marked surface.

S: Grapefruit and lemon peel up front, followed by a lovely Belgian fruitiness, and clove in the finish.

T: Lemon peel, and grapefruit up front, then some lovely Belgian notes.. stone fruit, clove, and a touch of bread. Finish is lemon peel, and a touch of earthiness.

M:Medium, but the effervescent carbonation makes it feel lighter. A fairly long bitter cling on this.

O: Overall really interesting, and really enjoyable.

Aftertaste shows a well-rounded flavour of a lot of hops, some light malt and a good deal of the belgian yeast strain. Overall, a well-balanced beer that hits the right notes,

It has cloudy orange/brown color. Smells like citrus and a little soapy. It doesn't taste much bitter than other hoppy, with citrus aroma. The aftertaste is earthy and refreshing.

The color was extremely reminiscent of a pumpkin orange/amber. The smell and taste is both citrus and apple-like, as well as some hoppy with pine or earthy aftertaste.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

This has a cloudy golden brown/orange look to it. The smell and taste is like orange citrus but also has a sour/bitter taste. Overall, its a bit too bitter for my taste, so it's not one I would not seek out.
