A - Pours a slightly hazy murky orange colour, finger of head with some retention and sheeting lacing.

S - Sweet citrus hops, touch of lemon, a unique wooden oaky scent that comes through alongside some bananas and cloves.

T - Much like the scent, with the oaky cloves and bananas, leafy green hops, earthy citrus and a hint of oily resin.

M - Medium bodied, smooth, and a touch of dryness on the finish.

O - Dangerously drinkable at 8.5%, the ABV is well hidden and flavours are perfectly matched for the style. Another winner from Flying Dog.

A: Pours with a slightly cloudy, yellow-orange with a large frothy white head that sticks around for a good while.

S: A very pleasant combination of traditional IPA and Belgian aromas: citrus, pine, and a faint straw and yeast character.

T: I am amazed by the taste of this beer. I expected a bitter hop bomb, but instead get a smooth citrus flavor up front followed by a mild thirst quenching bitterness that is mellowed by a Belgian wheat-like character. The alcohol is nearly unnoticeable.

M: Very silky smooth, and light in the mouth makes this beer drink very smoothly. This is a beer I could drink all day in the summer.

O: I'm not a huge IPA fan, but this one blew me away. I would definitely drink this again. It's thirst-quenching, and tasty. If it weren't for the high ABV this would a great session beer, as it certainly has the flavor for it.
