Pours crystal clear with minimal snow white, Belgiansque foam. Retention is below average for an IPA with similar lacing.

Aroma has citrus but seemingly from orange peel. Belgian yeast notes are strong as well. Hops aren't really that prevalent.

Taste brings about the same from the aroma. The citrus is orange peel in nature, Belgian yeast: clove and banana. Slight pine. Bitterness in the finish while the hops in the same place are soapy in nature.

Light body and carbonation that is medium.

This beer reminds me of a Belgian Wit complimented by some hops and hops that are my favorite on top of a beer style that isn't my favorite. I like Pipeworks but this one doesn't do it for me. Enjoy!
