Interesting seasonal but not one I will rush back for.
A- very soapy, suddy pour and looked appetizing in the glass for a while. Most of the head dissipated after a couple of glugs, however, but acceptable lacing left on top.
S - I got more of the syrupy Belgian sugar on the nose. Not overbearing, but doesn't smell much like a Us IPA at all - it's transatlantic influence defines the scent.
T - Tantalising hops, citrus and a hint of bitterness upfront quickly gives way to Belgian candy.
M - front of tongue, top of pallet heavy. A bit astringent - felt the carbonation.
Overall: Belge comes to California, rather than the reverse. Just made me want a Stone IPA or Ruination. Not a bad brew to try out, however.
