Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA

12 oz bottle. Not quite sure why this did not/has not made it to GA, perhaps it HAS but I’ve not been looking for it. Was it in the Canis Major mixed pack? Anyway…
Hazy, orange body with low to mid-carbonation and a little head and some retention. Not much lace at all.
Nose offers some light hop character, a bit of sweetness and perhaps a touch of Belgian yeast.
Tastes are reminiscent of the nose, but crank some of the aspects up quite a lot. The sweetness comes first, followed by the yeast and finally a really direct and assertive metallic bitterness comes in. The beer feels a bit too thin for me, and there are several examples of this style give much deeper (And better) interpretations for me. There are are some citrus fruit peel and zest notes with some orange, lemon and grapefruit influences.
In the end I didn’t find this especially interesting. One and done here.
