4.25/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - deep, dark yellow. A huge head quickly dissipates to just a bit on top.

S - smells like an IPA. I smell hops. Also smells a just a little sweet.

T - I like the taste. I don't taste much "Belgian" in this Belgian IIPA, but just enough to make it Belgian style. In the back of the throat, I get just a hint of that Belgian yeast. But the hops dominate that taste.

D - Very drinkable Belgian IPA. I will probably buy this again. This was my first Hoppin Frog brew, and overall, I am impressed.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: This poured a clear gold with lots of white head.
S: It smelled like bright citrus, with metallic copper and salty Belgian yeast and a bit of sourdough bread.
T: It tasted like unripe apricot and lemon zest, with some sweet candi sugar and salty Belgian yeast and metallic copper. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick with lots of carbonation. Nice big and lively body.
D: This was a decent Belgian IPA, but the scent and taste weren't terribly impressive. The body was solid, and the alcohol was decently hidden, so it was easy enough to drink. Not for aging. Good not great fresh.
