A collaborative brew, brewed for Pittsburgh Craft beer week at Church Brew Works with the owner of Caliente Pizza and Draft House.

Pours a deep golden color with a white head and plenty of lacing. The aroma had big tropical hop notes and a bit of cotton candy like sweetness from the Belgian yeast.

In the taste, nice hop flavor with tropical notes. Pine, mango and pineapple come to mind when describing the hop flavors. Kind of like a West Coast Belgian IPA. Bubblegum like notes from the yeast. Really tasty and the glass was gone too fast.

Medium bodied, well carbonated brew. Overall I could recommend this beer to fans of IPAs and Belgians alike. Solid IPA style beer here and one of the better PCBW collaborative brews.

Holy shit! The nose on this thing is unbelievable! Fruity esters and floral hop tones. Flavor is damn good too. Nice fruity tones with a mild sweetness. Hops are giving a great accent too. This is, surprisingly, the best beer I've had of the Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week collaborations.
