look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Well hazed peach color. One finger of frothy/creamy white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.5 S: Quite hoppy and in a way that is befitting of the brew. This is super grassy. It's probably the only brew I've ever had that is both extremely hoppy and not citrusy at all. Earthy and herbal after the grassiness. Lightly sugary. Belgian yeast spiciness that comes mainly in the form of clove and pepper. Otherwise clean. Very nice.
4.0 T: Again, this is has a clean neutral maltiness with big hops and spicy yeast. Big grassy flavor. Very low bitterness. Pepper and clove. Superbly drinkable. The hops are potent, but don't overstep their place.
4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly spritzy with a good creaminess. Super smooth.
4.5 D: This is a damn fine beer. Incredibly drinkable. Hops do their job and do it well, but don't make the beer a cloying undrinkable hop bomb that some of the more citrus oriented IPAs do. This is a wonderful beer and a must try.

Poured from a bottle into tulip
A - Pours a wonderful orange color with about 1 finger of white head that fades rather quickly.
S - The citra hop really shines here. Pineapple, mango, apple, orange peel. Bubblegum and traditional Belgian yeast come through very apparently as well. Quite a treat to the nose.
T - Somewhat similar to the nose. Green apple, bubblegum, pineapple, pear, other light fruits and Belgian yeast come through. Bitterness is up there. I'd imagine IBUs in the 90s or so. Very balanced and easy drinking. No alcohol or heat. My new favorite Belgian IPA!
O - This beer blew me away for the style. The only other Belgian IPA I've had that comes close is Lagunitas Little Sumpin Wild, but I haven't had Duvel yet. If you live in Wisconsin, don't hesitate upon purchasing a sixer of this stuff. Easy drinking and flavorful: everything you would want in a Belgian IPA.
