This potent beer poured with a huge head, which along with some fruity esters, reminded our tasters of some fine Belgian-style ales. This is definitely an IPA, though, with complex pine, citrus, and floral hop character, and a sprightly palate that is crisply bitter. The dry finish has elegant lemon peel and a hint of coriander.
