12oz bottle into a tall snifter

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with two fingers of head on a very vigorous pour. The foam quickly settled down to a thin film. OK retention, decent lacing.

S: Quite light in aroma. I get bready malts mixed with yeasty spice. I also get some spice and a bit of citrus from the hops. Pleasant, but mild.

T: Spicy yeast mixes with bready malts and a bit of sweetness. Hop bitterness comes in with some citrus notes.

M: Medium thickness with light carbonation.

O: I'm not really a fan of this. It's certainly not bad, but I could use more yeast flavor and more hop flavor. I'm also not sold on the hop/yeast combination. Average.

I like Belgians and I like ipas, but now I know that I'd rather have them separate than mixed. People are calling this "balanced" but to me the flavors are not at all. I feel like the closest comparison I can make is with simpler times lager, which is odd. I'm getting a lot of adjunct flavors here.

Served by brewery staff at the Ponce de Leon Beer Fest. Poured with a rather large head.

Aroma: fruit; honey; light bready malt. Aside from the fruitiness, less hoppy than expected.

Sweet start with a mildly bitter finish.
Quite fruity. Sweet for a beer with this much hop flavor. Excellent balance

Feel: Light body with medium-high carbonation.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a golden yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is malt and some hops. The taste is malt driven with some floral hops in the background.

Murky dark golden poured to jar. Nose is more IPA than Belgium but some yeast ester is present. Taste is malt and hop driven with more Belgian notes. Quite a unique Belgian IPA here. Mild fruitiness complimented by mild bitterness and grassy finish. Above medium body and average carbonation.

3.75/5  rDev -0.8%

A: Pours a rich golden yellow with slight one finger head leaving some light lacing.

S: Sweet malts, candy sugar, and a faint hint if floral hops.

T: Nice blend of sweet malts and floral hops.

M: Medium body with a fair amount of carbonation.

O: Easy drinking and enjoyable, but doesn't really stand out. It could use more prominent hops, more depth of flavor.
