Appearance - The ale was a golden copper color with a fluffy white head. Lacing was apparent as the head receded.
Smell - The citra hops are easy to detect. There is citrus and there is pine in the aroma. The earthy notes are not overly pungent, but rather sweet.
Taste - On the initial, one detects grapefruit, candy sugar, and grassy resin. The initial taste is a little to brief. It begins to move into a mild banana before moving to a more harsh resin profile. The aftertaste strikes me as a little watery.
Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel resembled a DIPA its thickness. The coating left behind strikes the note of Belgian thickness.
Overall - I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I would definitely enjoy this one on a hot day.

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.
