Boned on April 18, 2014, poured into Devils Backbone Snifter
A- pours a bright and clear golden color with a one-finger creamy white head that retains long after the pour with bubbles continuously shooting to the top. Head eventually settles leaving behind some nice lacing, very nice
S- fruity hop aroma up front gives notes mango, papaya and pineapple. Peppery spicy notes with aromas of earth and must
T- fruity hop flavors follow the nose with flavors of pineapple and papaya, peppery spice kicks in mid-palate with some earthy notes and a kick of bready malt, leading to a dry finish with more fruity hops
M- medium body and medium carbonation lead to a foamy and creamy mouthfeel, with a creamy and smooth finish
O- nice fruity IPA, although it didn't have that classic phenolic taste that I like in Belgian IPA's, it was still quite enjoyable

Brilliant clear golden orange to orange amber with a 2 1/2 finger whitish head that recedes leaving a ring around the glass and a film over the surface. Little lacing.
Aroma of Belgian yeast with fruity hops. Ripe citrus and mango or maybe cantaloupe. Nice spicy yeast.
Sweet caramel malt with fruity overtones here as well. Hints of ripe cantaloupe and citrus rind. Lemony tart with a pronounced bitterness.
Pretty crisp and medium to medium full in body. Almost a bit fizzy. A considerable drying aspect that makes it seem as if the beer is more sticky than it actually is.
The taste and mouthfeel seemed a bit weak at first, but then showed definite improvement after I'd been at it for awhile. Quite a good beer. I'd definitely try it again.

Clear and golden beer with lots of streaming bubbles. The head is tall and white, with very good retention and a fair amount of lace. Hop aromas are more akin to grass and hay than citrus (as their website indicated). Other smells have a lemon and green grape aspect that remind me of a white wine. The Belgian yeast strain also lends some spices to both the smell and taste. Bitterness is moderate, with a highly carbonated mouthfeel. Flavors are split between the spices and hop bitterness. Finishes fairly dry and spicey, with some piney bitterness as well. Not what I'd call my favorite style and not one I review often, but I did I enjoy this sample.
Thanks to Treyliff for the extra!
