Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspired by the founder’s daughter, and just like her, truly a one of a kind. A uniquely dryhopped Belgian Golden Ale with a subtle sweetness and a lot of mischievous tones. Don't be disarmed by her easy going nature, she packs quite a punch.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, batch # M151. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light banana, coriander, pepper, candi sugar, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/pine hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light banana, coriander, pepper, candi sugar, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, light pine, light banana, coriander, pepper, candi sugar, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/pine hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian IPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/pine hops, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Too fruity for me, but still pretty interesting.

A: Cloudy orange-yellow in color. Forms a ridiculously large fluffy white head that requires me to wait 10 minutes before I can even taste the beer (and let me just say having to wait to drink a beer because the head is so big is a pet-peeve of mine). Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is a pleasing blend of Belgian yeastiness (spice and phenols), alcohol, green, grassy hops and some light citrus notes.

T: Taste is likewise pleasant. Light malts. Light sweetness. Citrus. Some light spice notes and a touch of yeast. A bit of alcohol on the back end.

M: Lighter bodied. Lively carbonation. Mild bitterness.

O: A better than average Belgian Pale Ale. Leans towards a more American approach with heavier hopping and restrained yeastiness.
