Had this out of a bottle a few hours ago.

I'm interested in the Belgian IPA style but unfortunately this one didn't work for me, mostly because it was extremely overcarbonated.

I couldn't really get much of a nose out of the bottle, though I think I picked up some of the belgian funkiness.

Taking a drink, I was suprised to find that the beer was incredibly carbonated. So much so that it all foamed up inside my mouth. I don't know whether there was a fermentation issue in this particular bottle or if the brewery is trying to dial in the yeast, but it reminded me of an overprimed bottle of homebrew.

It was plenty hoppy, but with the carbonation I couldn't tease apart too many of the flavors. The belgian funkiness and hops were well balanced but kind of combined into one flavor that left me a bit confused.

I expect this would be much better without the overcarbonation, and I would prefer to drink this kind of beer out of a glass. Still, I would have to rank this alongside mediocre homebrew in terms of how much I enjoyed it.
