This was at Great Taste of the Midwest. Review from notes.

This is an IPA with American Hops and Belgian Yeast. It was labeled as an American IPA by Shorts.

Color was a typical ipa clear golden copper. Beige head. It was earthy and clean. A lot of floral and grassy hops. Nice bitterness. The Belgian yeast provided some interesting flavors that made it taste more like a Belgian IPA. Bananas and fruitiness were here. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

Definitely worth a try.
