From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on February 2, 2014.

The color of the pour is copper amber with very good, clean clarity building up to a quick lasting fizzy white head.

Instead of an IPA I feel like I am smelling a Belgian Tripel with its yeasty, toasted biscuit, and slightly spicy character. The grassy hops are more muted but there.

Light and refreshing body.

The taste begins with a toasted bready malt character and Belgian sweetness but there is a slightly astringent but likable hop bitterness warming things up from behind. Nice.

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.

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.
