2.48/5 rDev -40.7%
The description sounded great: Citra hops, Trappist yeast, an IPA. A unique twist on the Belgo-IPA moniker. Unfortunately it does not live up to my expectations. The aroma screams Belgian with hints of phenols and spiciness. The mouthfeel is thin for such a beer and the Citra really doesn't shine through the yeast profile. At first sip it was an unexpected taste, upon letting it warm up and further tastes the beer is palatable but not as interesting as it could have been. I've had other beers by Ale Asylum and they do not disappoint. This one leaves the drinker wanting, and expecting more.

A-Pours a very clear reddish hue with two fingers of dense white head.
S-Spicy pine and grapefruit smells with some orange and alcohol notes on the finish with a little clove.
T-Clove yeast notes on the front with a light orange citrus note and a light bitterness.
M-A little watery with very light carbonation and a slick feel.
D-Not my thing at all, the bitterness is so low key and the feel is just completely disappointing. I'm a little disappointed that I bought Citra hops to brew with based off this beer.

Appearance: a deep orange, with reddish and yellowish hues moving from the center to sides. hazy and opaque. a finger or so of a white head that fades and leaves a weak lacing on the sides.
Smell: orange, pineapple and other citrus to tropical fruits that mix with sweetness, belgian yeast, and pilsner malts.
Taste: opens up with pineapple and citrus hops, with a bit of sweetness mixed in. lots of pilsner malts and a grassy taste. small belgian yeast character at the end.
Mouthfeel: dry and a little bitter. also on the heavy side for a belgian.
Overall: i initially liked this one more and as you drink more it declines a bit, too much of a grassy taste. Ideally a belgian ipa that i like should be doable but it seems less so everytime i drink one. this one ends up in the upper end of mid row.
