Bottle says enjoy by July 6, 2010
Poured into Duvel glass
A- hazy/semi clear dark orange with lots of carbonation bubbles; two finger white fluffy head that appears to have lots of lacing
S- really easy to pick it out the IPA and tripel aromas and blends really well; sweet tangerine and orange citrus, some pine, a touch of alcohol
T-a nice clean hop bitterness with predominate citrus flavor with this yeasty perfume-like taste...really enjoying this
M-a touch more carbonation would have been perfect, but its still quite nice; semi-dry finish in your mouth with a slightly sweet citrus that lingers
D-really impressed with this beer; to be honest, I find it a little more drinkable than the belgian versions of belgian ipas, maybe its the lower alcohol, but its really good; a 22 oz bomber is easy to finish

3.71/5 rDev -7.3%

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.
