12 oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: This beer poured a huge head that reduced a little, but for the most part is still there. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Crazy lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: pineapples, mangos, spicy yeast, bready and caramel notes, and some citrus.

Taste: Same as above, some lingering bitterness from all the citrus hops too. Very tasty BIPA.

Mouthfeel: Super smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and very drinkable.

Overall: I love this beer. Pretty good and I am very happy with it. Looking for more in the future.

From the 12. fl. oz. bottle no.151A138. Sampled on February 25, 2013.

It is an attractive looking beer with a medium amber tone, copper, like a brand new penny, busy carbonation and a lingering off-white head. That gets a high mark.

The aroma has as touch of Belgian sugars and yeast, banana, and bubblegum.

The body is medium but there is a considerable acidity going on which makes it a little sharper on the palate.

The taste drops hints that it is a Belgian style IPA with the pale malts, banana, and bubblegum (like the aroma) and moderate hop bitterness lingering on at the finish. But there is something rather off about it. It has this graininess or something I cannot quite define. It looked and smelled good but it slipped on the taste.
