Poured from a bottle into a La Fin du Monde tulip. Nice dark orange color. Slightly cloudy with two fingers of creamy head. Very good retention. I get some sweet, malty notes tinged with fruit on the nose. Toast, marmalade, pineapples, and a little lemon.
Medium body with a slick, oily feel. Plenty of sweet, grainy malt up front and enough hops to provide a fruity component to the flavor like over-ripe oranges and pineapples. There is a touch of quinine-like bitterness that cuts through near the finish and complements the fruity sweetness nicely, but the fruit flavors linger the longest.
Very reminiscent of Houblon Chouffe in that it seems to taste like a cross between an American IPA and a Belgian Tripel. This one lacks some of the hoppy components of the d'Achouffe beer (sadly), but is still a fine beer. Very well-constructed and enjoyable. Complex without demanding too much.

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.
