look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4 = 3.88/5
Dense cloudy and veiled dark gold color with moderate activity. Slightly creamy light beige 2-3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with dense legs, and moderate lace. Flavors of orange, sweet grains, grapefruits, lemon, peach, caramel, wheat, floral spices. Bready and zesty. Slick and smooth medium to full body with crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, soft clove, tropical fruits, sharp zesty yeast, citrusy and leafy hops. Pleasant floral and flowery dry hops. Good balance and well intensified. Solid pale ale, very fruity while clean, with not too much maillard effect. Highly hoppy close to an IPA, with a Belgian touch in the yeast. Very good taste and feel. Overall high quality craft.
