On draft at Dutch's (served in a pint glass). Looks good; lighter like a BIPA should. Smells good too; pears and apples. Tastes good too; much better than its non-dry hopped counterpart. Mouthfeel is good too; easy to drink, but distinct. Overall, a very good beer that I'm happy to have had the opportunity to try.
Serving type: on-tap

A- poured a cloudy light gold with about two fingers of foamy white head. Head dissipates down to about a half finger and leaves thick lacing.
S- interesting citrus and spice blend. Citrus reminds me of grapefruit and lemon.
T-the belgian yeast definitely comes through. It tastes like a very hopped Saison, with the fruity esters and the hoppy citrus balanced quite well against the malt backbone.
M- hints of carbonation and a little thinner in feel.
O- a really good, albeit very different IPA than the usual.

22oz bottle into a .5 cylinder named Spaten.
A- Two finger fast fade head, although at first ample... soapy pour, lacing strong. Foggy light gold amber color.
S - Way more belgian than IPA. Coriander, spice, yeast. Classic, not terribly American.
T - Now we experience the hops, esp frontal and middle arc, excellent hops, citrus and a hint of bitterness upfront that gives away to Belgian sweetness, spice, and yeasty esters. Complex, woody, grass, spice. Alot going on, but it works.
M - Very nice, class belgik, on front of tongue. Astringent - tingly carbonation.
Overall: MORE Belge than California, wish it was reversed! As a reviewer wrote " made me want a Stone IPA , bastard, or Ruination". Worth a try - a true Belgian without too much Stone Signature.
