A - Pours shades of orange and ruby with good clarity and two fingers of white head. Spotty lacing surrounds the glass.

S - grapefruit citrusy hops, malts, bread dough and yeasty. Faint brown sugar / malty smell in the background.

T - very hop forward, and blends with some belgian style hops and malt backbone.

O - This is a solid Ameri-Belgo DIPA. I usually don't prefer the belgian style IPA's but this is nice because the robust american style hops take center while the Belgian flavors are secondary.

A beautiful fusion. Poured from bottle to tulip. One and a half fingers foamy white head dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet Belgian yeast mingled with citrus and tropical fruits. The taste unravels in similar fashion. Sweet bubblegum/banana upfront on the tongue, followed closely by mango, grapefruit and lemon zest, and finishes with and bitter kick in the back of the mouth. One of my personal favorites, hopefully we'll see this one in bottles again in 2017.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Golden orange body. Fleeting but nice white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Citrusy hops. Belgian yeast and sweetness. A little phenolic.

Taste - Much maltier. Grapefruit hop. Sweet pale malts. Super bitter in the back.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Very bitter.

Overall - Very bitter, but good.
