Poured from a hilarious bottle labeled with a gorilla trying to wear a shark as pants.. About what you'd expect from the nutcases at Three Floyds and De Struise. The appearance.. Not great. A murky brown with a good amount of grainy sediment.. Whatever.. Let's get to it.

The smell is sweet, yet bitter. You get a good amount of hoppy malt, and you can sense that this has origins in Belgium with a twist from a brewery filled with hop-head maniacs. I was worried that this beer was going to taste unpleasant.

I was wrong. The taste is wonderful. The 120 IBUs is masked beautifully behind the citrusy, sweet Belgian yeast. It's not drinkable in mass quantities by any means, but it's not terribly heavy either. The flavor is strong, and it lasts for minutes after each sip. Finishes with hop bitterness and.. is that chocolate?

Mouthfeel is awesome. Smooth and creamy.

Overall, love it. So sad that it's gone. I'd buy a case if I could.

On tap at Max's (from notes).

A: Dark brown amber. Nice lacing.

S: Piney goodness with a bit of spice.

T: Nice solid even IPA. Subdued pine. Lots of flavor with a bit of yeast. Quite belgian.

M: Strong even carbonation throughout.

O: An excellent IPA.
