Keep in mind with this review that I do not generally like IPAs but I am currently trying to find one that I like, because when I tell beer lovers that I don't like IPAs they look at me like I just punched their grandma in the face.

Pours hazy golden with a thin white head.

Smells strongly of pine and citrus

Bitter IPA taste with plenty of citrus flavor which was pleasant but the bitterness was just too much.

Overall my search for a tasty IPA continues. IPA fans may like it but I just couldn't come to terms with the bitterness.

A Belgium white ipa. If that sounds good to you, you may enjoy. I didn't care for the taste, but Belgium whites and ipa's are not my favorite styles.

Tasted on cask. This one was just weird. Funky, but beyond even the norm of a Saison. Almost like it had started to go sour.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
