Been wanting to try this beer for a while.
Poured into a Great Divide Tulip
Appearance-Dark orange, almost brown body. 3 fingers of big bubbly white head that dissipates pretty quickly, lots of lacing remains.
Smell-Belgian Yeast, lots of biscuit. Big orange citrus aroma.
Taste-Sweet up front then the belgian yeast and spiciness comes through, lots of lemony coriander. The finish has a nice amount of citrus and pine hops, and the belgian yeast carries through the finish. Very very balanced.
Mouthfeel-Refreshing as fuck. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Nicely balanced and very smooth.
Overall-Expecting more harshness from a stone IPA. This is very smooth and extremely drinkable. Great representation of the style.

I was looking for something a bold and different and went with this unique brew.
color:7-9 SRM, a beautiful rich golden color.
Appearance: poured thick like tripple, nice thick head, and slightly effervescent.
Mouthfeel: thick, heavy
Smell: yeasty, hints of orange, lemon.
Taste: yeasty and bread like with lemon and slight citrus notes.
Experience: was stoked at the thought of a Belgian/American IPA hybrid beer. Poured a great golden color and nice long lasting 1 finger head. From the first taste I think Belgian all the way. It's heavy mouthfeel and bready/yeasty flavors soak the palate, only to be cut by a slight lemon citrus finish from those west coast hops.
I expected more of a hop presence, but I'm disappointed in a good way. This beer is descriptively complex and is a must try for hop heads and Belgian lovers alike.
