Yes. This is a Belgian ipa. That much seems certain. It strikes me as somewhat boozy really. There is a definite burn on it and it detracts from the overall experience. If it were toned down a good bit then the hops and Belgian side of things would probably be able to shine better.

22 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark brownish orange color with a half inch of head. The aroma is dank hops, mango, orange peel, yeast and some sourness. The taste is dank hops and mango along with those orange peel and yeast flavors you expect in a Belgian. A bit funky and bitter. Some floral hop notes as well. Hints of grapefruit at the finish. This is a Belgian IPA with a good amount of hop flavor. Mixes both qualities of a Belgian and an IPA very well. Mouthfeel is a bit light for the style. I didn't know what style of beer this was until afterwards. I basically saw the name with the hop on the label and grabbed it, but I have to say that I am presently surprised by this one. Overall, good version of the style.

22 oz bottle was poured into a large Omer tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange color with vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: vanilla, spices, tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, bubble gum, bready, and caramel malts.

Taste: This beer is delicious. Same as above with tingly bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, a little dry, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and tingly bitterness.

Overall: Pretty solid BIPA. I could drink several of these right now. Will look for more in the future.
