Pours a translucent peach blonde with creamy white fluffy head that sticks all over the glass. The aroma is dominant Belgian esters, some sweeter fruity notes, slightly phenolic (getting a little band aid scent here). The hops don't really shine through like they would in the regular IPA (I believe this is the same beer but fermented with a Belgian strain), very masked and hidden in the aroma. Slugging this thing down, the taste at first comes as Belgian candi sugar, very nice but not too overpowering. The sweetness doesn't linger for too long, and a light bitterness follows through to the finish. Body's on the light to medium side, with a smooth, dry finish. Not sure how much of a fan I am of the style -I'm either in a Belgian mood or a hoppy mood, so this one doesn't really satisfy either BUT an excellent beer nonetheless.
