This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing was kinda all over the place. The smell was basically a spiced apple to pear, light orange, and grapefruit, light lemon, Lemon rind, lemongrass, light pepper on the back end. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined wonderfully allowing a super refreshing blend come all about. On the palate, it had the normal harsh characteristics of a Belgian IPA to still allow a safe yet soft feel all around. I would say that this was about medium bodied. Overall, for the price, this stuff is pretty damn good in all departments!

Best before 11/14/15 Poured into a tulip glass.

L- Deep light gold, great clarity, two finger white head.

S- Some mango and citrus zest with a very light Belgian yeasty funk. Light bit of bubblegum probably both from the hops and the yeast.

T- Similar to aroma but more citrus coming out, light bitterness, light Belgian funky yeast character that is really only a back note to the American hops. Medium dryness.

F- Lighter side of medium, very easy drinking.

O- A really nice American Belgian IPA.

Nice hazy golden color. Smell is slightly tart granny Smith Apples. Taste is also a bit tart, hop bitterness w/o a specific hop profile. Drinks clean

A very potent grapefruit tone dominates this IPA. I feel that this one needs to be left to the sipping category, because the flavor is just so potent.

A spectacular mountain of white foamy head lightly hazed pale gold. Lacing is impressive.
Smell is mild pear.
Taste is pear a touch of mango and herbal grassy hops.
Mouthfeel is very light with good carbonation. Finish lightly sweet.
Overall a subtle and light drinking Belgian IPA. The hops are close to balanced with the malts.
I would recommend you try this just don't expect the usual West Coast IPA. Light bodied easy drinking and subtle.
