This Belgian Style India Pale Ale has a cloudy golden color with a nice constant white head. It has a heavy carbonation with some big bubbles in the head. The aroma has a spicy citrus notes. The taste has a heavy carbonation notes with citrus to Belgian spicy notes. The aftertaste is a heavy dry hop finish. It is a sipping beer.

Closing, I have been trying to get to know this Mountain area craft brewery. Every time I see their beers on draft. I have been getting at least a pint of it. I have been mixing up some bottles when I go beer shopping. I pick up this bottle because I have never had it. I love my IPA’s and Belgian style IPA’s have been growing on me. At one time, I really did not like this beer style in the world of IPA’s. I love the notes that the Belgian yeast kicks off in the beer. The strong malty backbone knocks the powerful American Hops down that they picked in this brew. This is a great beer and I am glad I tried it. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
