Maybe a few too many flavors/styles in one. It grows on you after a sip or two.

Wish this hit me better, but too strong, not what I expected. It looks great, but smell and taste are too hoppy!

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 2/17/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon peel, lime, peach, pear, apple, pepper, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness/yeast spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is an awesome Belgian IPA style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

2/2....pours translucent copper with high white foam, over an inch. Wheat nose, soft grains, high fruits. Taste of wheat, sharp tart, citrus, grains, heavy bitter. The belgian twists up the witbier.
