A- The beer is a rich looking yellow. lightly carbonated. Big pouring head that dissipates slowly. medium lacing. Clear
S- A nose-full of Belgian yeasts and fruity hops. Maybe some sweet. No alcohol. Good aroma strength.
T- More of the Belgian yeasts & hops but with a good balance of malts linking the two. A lingering pleasant hop finish. No alcohol so one can drink too much of this in a hurry. Lots of flavor.
M- Though its body is light it has a smooth character to it. The carbonation matches it to make a well balanced and good body.
O- I really enjoyed this beer. Could spend all day with it.
Serving type: on-tap

4.06/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A- pours a slightly hazy golden-straw color with a small fizzy white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top, no lace
S- lots of fruity notes up front; banana taffy, pineapple juice, mango, fruit smoothie. There is also some grassy hop notes mixed in with some sweet raisin-bready malt, very interesting
T- the fruity notes follow in flavor with a big mango and banana kick. There are some Belgian characteristic yeast flavors with some fruity, musty notes. The fruitiness continues throughout and finishes slightly sweet and astringent with lingers of dry tropical fruit and grassy hops
M- medium body with moderate carbonation, slightly foamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish
O- this used to be labeled as a Belgian pale ale, now a Belgian IPA. I don't think that it tastes like either, but whatever it is I really enjoyed it. Huge fruity flavors makes this on a beef that I will surely go back to
