look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Unfiltered opaque golden appearance with mild head and mild carbonation. Smells like an IPA. Hoppy with some citrus notes. Citrus and floral notes. Very dry. Good combination of a Belgian ale and an IPA. The IPA half dominates and the hoppiness really comes out. Really hoppy but at the same time refreshing. Can be a bit overly dry.
