12 oz bottle, bottled on 2015-9- 15, not sure what these bottles have been doing for the past 6 month, but they are new to the shelves and I see no recent reviews....hmmm

The pour is clouded, apricot in color, moderate light khaki cap, leaving some nice looking high webs of fine lace.

Some coriander, cloves and Belgian yeasty ness on the sniff

Hops are kinda muted, perhaps it's the time in the bottle, but again the coriander, cloves and yeast shine through. Better then average complexity...love the style, this one is worth a try...hopefully next time it will be a fresher batch....

On-tap at Mugs Ale House, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is hazy dark golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head.
S: Light aromas of ruby red grapefruit are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has lots of flavors of grapefruit along with notes of Belgian yeast and hints of spices. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a good amount of grapefruit flavors, but the Belgian yeast helps to balance things out and lend complexity.

Serving type: on-tap

Lots of grapefruit, nice hop aroma. Great hazy unfiltered look to this beer. Pretty head when poured hard. Very nice overall IPA.
