Received this brew from my other main man Mr. Gibby out of ol’ Philly. Have been looking forward to this one since he said it landed at his local brew store. Drank from my Stone India Pale Ale flute glass.

Appearance- Pours a hazy yellow with a big fluffy two fingered bright white head. A half fingered cap and collar is maintained the entire beer along with a bit of random lacing.
Smell- Extremely subtle and really fruity with a nice light citric character that is really fresh and nice. Loads of peaches, passion fruit and grapefruit all rolled up in a bit of citric goodness. Nothing really yeasty or Belgiumy in the nose it’s just nice and hoppy. Perhaps a tinge of a cracker crumb like maltiness hiding in the background.
Taste- Reminds me a lot of Midnight Sun Greed right from the first sip with a bit more booze. Nice and fruity with plenty of the aforementioned nose tones of peach and grapefruit. Not really overly bitter but a light grassy bite is detectable. Subtle bit of sweetness lies underneath everything with a light doughy malt. The taste is very delicate and the alcohol is a bit out of place in the finish.
Mouthfeel- Very light and crisp with a nice dry finish and a bit of warming booze.
Drinkability- Not bad but the booze is a bit much for how delicate the beer is. The hops are still nice and fresh and fruity and everything fits nice except for the 8.5%. All and all very enjoyable but let’s scale back the booze just a tinge. Thanks much Jeff!

Very interesting hopped Belgian style – they call it ale but it’s more like a hopped up, seasoned heavy beer. The initial nose is of hops, flowers, honey. The taste is heavenly and is almost like a sour beer or very Belgian style lager but w/lots of hops. The mid-taste is a honey, golden, hoppy, sour, flowery, bomb. The only complaint I have and the reason this beer isn’t rated higher is that the finish is just not with the rest of this excellent brew – the finish is a bit weak with not a lot of follow through. Don’t get me wrong – excellent brew and is very similar, but a tad better, than the Schneider Weisse Hopfen Weisse

750 ml bottle I picked up from Hop City in Atlanta. Can't remember how much this ran me but it was cheaper than most Bruery offerings at Hop City. Served up in a tulip as suggested.

A: Looking good for sure. Body is a dark orange in color with a little bit of yellow forcing through at the bottom of the tulip. Held to the light, I am getting more of a hazy yellow in color, the orange mellows out a bit. Still dark and hazy. The pour got me about a finger and a half of bubbly white head. The head has some serious stick to it and is throwing up a good amount of lace. Can't track down any carbonation in the glass. Still a very impressive looking pour.

S: Smell is all hops. Starting off with some herbal and grassy notes. There is a good amount of citrus behind that with some grapefruit and orange. Has a light earthy not of Belgian yeast in there but it is pretty faint. Nothing crazy in this department but very enjoyable.

T: Yet again this is very hop forward, but with that said, this is balanced. Not crazy bitter but you expect it with the dose of hops that come forward. Good amount of herbal hops that bring out a slight medicinal flavor throughout the sip. Grassy and earthy hop presence. Grapefruit is there but not too bitter, touch of orange. (Once this warmed completely to room temp, a little bit of bitterness came out). No real Belgian qualities coming out in this one for me as far as the flavor goes. The yeast is very subdued and I am not getting those typical Belgian flavors. The malts are not noticeable (light pale) that much in flavor, but they neutralize any bitterness this beer may have had. Quite tasty.

M: Hmmm . . . this doesn't have any carbonation. I am talking pretty much nil in that department. Kinda taking away a bit from this. Would like a nice dose of carbonation, but that may just be me. Medium in body but it feels heavier at time due to the carbonation issue. Pretty smooth, light bitterness. Aftertaste is grapefruit and that herbal medicinal quality.

D: Not bad at all. It has room to improve in my eyes but it is easy drinking and isn't a bad beer by any stretch. Its highly drinkable beside the carbonation issue. Has a nice balance to it and the hoppy aroma is damned fine. A solid offering but I was expecting a bit more.

New 750ml bottling.

Terribly sexy looking beer. Dusky amber color that glows golden when held to the light. an inch of eggshell foam that leaves sticky lacing down the glass. Yowza.

Can a beer smell "juicy"? Because this one does. The hops are right up front, citrus, pineapple, a bit of pine. Sweetness of malt beneath the hops. A great wakeup call to the senses.

*gulp* wow this is good. This beer is all about balance. The hops may hit you in the face on the aroma, but the taste is much more centered. There's a lot going on here, and it's hard to nail down everything...it's fruity, but hoppy, sweet, yet dry and bitter in the finish. Mouthfeel is perfect, oily enough to coat the tongue, but finishes cleanly.

Highly recommended!
