A - Hazy amber color with thick and creamy off white head with steady carbonation.

S - Citrus and caramel malt. Smells like a home brew.

T - Citrus and some light malt.

M - Medium body.

O - This reminds me of a home brewed beer. Not a bad thing because I home brew.

A: A murky brown in color with a fairly large light tan, that looks fluffy with a couple of craters.

S: Big hops in the aroma.. mostly grapefruit. Light bread and biscuit following.

T: Big hops. Citrus is dominant with grapefruit and orange peel leading the way. Light bread, and a spice character as well as a touch of Belgian yeast character

M: Medium in body with very active carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish.

O: Overall a very enjoyable brew. I wish I got a little more from the grains, but the combination of hops, and yeast work well.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a dark red/brown sort of color with a light tan to off white foamy/semi-fizzy head. Light stringy to bubbly lace. The aroma had some tropical fruit, some pine, dry funky sort of grassy edge and then gets yeasty as it warms. The flavor was somewhat sweet with a touch of the bitter, the tart and funky maltiness. Grassy edges come in to bump the balance into a slight earthy malty backbone. Crisp grassy hops and funk hit the aftertaste and ride on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, leans more towards a Belgian IPA to me. Still, I could come back to.

My favorite beer from vivant that is not a sour.
Color: Deep reddish amber. somewhat of a orange tint too. Very clear.
Smell: solid hoppiness and some floral as well.
Taste: Solid bitterness and you can taste the same hop smells. Very drinkable though and smooth as well as crisp.
