Poured into a pint.
A: Gentle pour yields 1/4 finger of white head with poor retention, leaving just a ring. Clear copper-orange liquid. Good lookin'. I'd like more head, or may be I'll pour harder next time since I see it's filtered now.
S: Slight clove, bubblegum, some volatile booze (negative). Some faint tropical fruit floats on the booze.
T: Jumbled at first with the hops settling out in dominance. Well bittered! Open is swet with a dash of Belgian clove ester and funkiness - very nice! Excellent perhaps even. One of the best BIPAs I've had. Pronounced Belgian character, but generally skews towards AIPA.
M: Terrifically bitter, west coast IPA territory. Slight breathy heat is almost a negative.
O: Great. I'd love another and will buy 6. Glad this one finally made it into MI!

On tap. Pours orange with a short lived white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel and biscuit malt, ripe fruit, citrusy hops. Body is full and very tangy. Huge amount of citrusy hops, caramel and bready malt, peaches and cherries fill the mouth. Finish is huge and very hoppy. Awesome brew.
