Pours a three finger cream head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Almost clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light pine hop nose, flavor is more grapefruit than pine, the Belgian yeast helps mellow the hops. Lingering bitter aftertaste. $8.49 for a 22oz from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA.

Served in a tulip on draft at Deep Ellum.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that is still there. It is a pale orange color with some clarity and slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the head faded. Super nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Tropical hops up front. Pineapple, mango, passion fruit, and tangerine. Vanilla, pale and bready malts, and spiciness in there.

Taste: Taste are along the same lines with the hops being more noticeable and the other mentioned aromas in the rear. Subtle bitterness in the back of the palate too.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, low to medium carbonation, nice tingly bitterness, and easy to drink.

Overall: A very nice BIPA that I have enjoyed many time over.
