4.45/5 rDev +12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
APPEARANCE: Very bright, hazy yellow-ish orange with a lovely quarter-inch of white head on top. The head collapses relatively quickly, but leaves some solid lacing.
SMELL: Huge citrus. Orange peel dominoes with a little banana in the mix.
TASTE: That orange flavor is still dominant with a little corriander, banana and clove behind it. Very well balanced with a nice hop bite, but some sweeter caramel malt and fruity yeast.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with a sweet start and a nice dry finish.
OVERALL: This is a beautiful example of the style. It's what an IPA should be and it's what a Belgian beer should be. Not quite sure how they made both work so well in one beer, but I'd have to say this is one of the better Belgian-Style IPAs I've had.
Serving type: bottle

Poured From the Tap into a pint glass
The color is a bright hazy yellow/orange with two fingers of thick foamy white head and some thick lacing left on the glass.
The smell is citrus but with a touch of earthy funk aroma. There is some navel orange or tangerine here in the nose along with earthy grass aroma.
The taste is tangerine and a touch of banana with a earthy, herbal flavor. The hops here have some bite but it seems less sharp then expected where the fine malt bill shows that this beer has more balanced then I anticipated. At times there is a bitterness that threatens take over and dominate with a spicy flavor that was interesting. The malts makes this beer work as touches of Belgian malt flavor rears it's head keeps things from being one sided.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a crisp, drinkable feel. The ABV here does give a slight kick but this is a beer that can be sipped and not rushed.
Serving type: on-tap
