Pours a clear golden color with a huge, fluffy off-white head. Leaves a nice crown of lacing around the top of the glass.

On the aroma I get a good amount of Belgian yeast and bananas, as well as a touch of peppery spice.

The flavor starts off sweet from the banana notes and some bready malt. Finishes bitter with some peppery rye and a spicy hop bite.

The feel is medium bodied with good carbonation. Nicely crisp and refreshing. Bitterness lingers for a bit too long after each sip.

Overall, a pretty good Belgian IPA that drinks just as much like a Hefeweizen. Decently balanced.

Poured from a pint can bottled on 5/3/2016 purchases at natural living center in Bangor, ME. Pours a light sraw with a tint of grapefruit juice like color mixed in, has a two finger foam head that sticks around for a while, very little to no lacing. Smell is the best part of the beer, smells of banana, cloves, vanilla, pepercorn, oak, and the sugary 2 row malt backbone. Taste doesnt really carry the smells through, at first you taste the malt sweetness from the pale, then its mostly alcohol, with a grain rye like aftertaste, really not that great or expected with the exceptional smell. Mouthfeel is perfect, nice and balanced and perfectly carbonated. Overall I love the smell and the style, more similar to a hefe than a ipa as per the smell, the taste is like an ESB. Would get again, maybe on draft though instead. 3.9/5.

Smells like rye and fruit. Pretty spicy. Lots of banana and cloves in the flavor with a significant peppery kick. A lot of eartht yeast. Pretty chewy body. Drinks more like a hoppy Hefe to me, but tasty.

banana and clove, for sure! super fluffy white head. bubble gum!
almost reminds me of a wheat, no? not getting the IPA out of what they are calling a "farmhouse IPA" but it's a good representation of the style and a fantastic taste. cant wait for the Epiphany tomorrow!
