3.59/5 rDev -3.5%
Purchased at the LCBO for $5.80 750ml bottle. Served at 8deg C in a challis.
A- Not that impressive. Opens well with a 2" head on pour that stays for a few minutes.
S- Again not much here. Hint of lemon
T- Pretty good. Nice bitter hoppy beer. Pretty mild and tame though in every respect. Not much heat although it's over 8%.
M- Not that impressive at all.
O- Very easy drinking high alcohol beer. Be careful!!
This nice light yet heavy beer goes well with.... pot roast

3.68/5 rDev -1.1%
750 ml bottle purchased from LCBO for $5.80 CDN. Served rather cool into glassware.
Appearance - Bright clear extremely fizzy beer is poured. Golden straw in color with just a few copper shades. Enormous 3.5 finger dense white head leaves sticky lacing and has a lingering presence. Pretty impressive looking and as the head recedes a large white cylinder of foam remains.
Smell - Mild amount of funky Belgian yeasts with some floral hops presence. Something tropical but the nose is subdued. There's also a doughy aroma that maintains throughout.
Taste - Mild Belgian IPA, as the taste of Belgian yeast is present although subdued and there's a dank earthy undertone to the whole beer. The bitterness and / or fruitiness (to at least some degree) is virtually nil, leaving the flavoring a bit disappointing for the style. Still a tasty beer
Mouthfeel - Very lively but a touch on the thin bodied side, especially given the appearance. Still crazily fizzy even after letting the beer settle. A touch of heat on the back end from the booze.
Overall - A passable Belgian IPA, but this to me is more of a Belgian Pale Ale, than a Belgian IPA. Still worth a try while quantities last

3.86/5 rDev +3.8%
a: nice swing top bottle that pours a hazy gold/straw with a cray thick white head that looks like meringue and has amazing staying power
s: spicy, sweet, coriander, rounded citrus,
t: sweet, mild hay, rock sugar, spicey, a bit of abv, and a mild bitter hop finnish, a little grapiness
m: the creamy foam adds a nice element to the mouthfeel; medium body, slightly syrupy, it is lightly carbed which i think accentuates the mild syrupiness - it could use more carbonation imo
d: a decent beer (although it is a little overpriced), could use a little less sweetness i think and some more complex balance - good though, but an also ran for beers in the style.
