A 22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Slightly hazy orange color. A medium off-white head that dissipated quickly. There was a bit of lace.

Funky aroma, earthy hops. A good deal of sweet malt.

Caramel taste, funky. The hops were apparent later.

This was a nice Belgian IPA. Smooth and balanced, fun to drink.

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.
