look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Beer is an orange/straw color that is pretty clear. Pours a moderate sized creamy white head. Head has decent retention and leaves heavy lacing. Smells of bread, pine, and citrus, a bit of other fruit, although I can't pinpoint what.

Taste starts with pine, then moves to orange with a bit of lemon and grapefruit. Has a nice bready finish with both pine and orange, and a bit more of nondescript fruit. A little funky/yeasty. Has a light body and high carbonation for an IPA, although they are probably both average for a Belgium.

Golden orange with good initial head and nice lacing.

Citrus hops atop the faint belgian yeast smell.

It's hard to believe this is just the regular IPA with a different yeast strain. Orange rind and tropical fruits are atop bready clovey belgian yeast.

Quite carbonated.

This was really interesting. My sense is I prefer their straight up IPA, but it's worth experiencing.
