look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Bottle to HFS sniffer
A: orangey yellow that is essentially see thorough with a white head not going to lie it looks like Budweiser
S: There is a very light smell of the belgian yeast but other then that there is basically nothing there it smells like beer but nothing distinctive pretty disappointing
T:it has pale ale flavors I can taste the malt and there is a light amount of hop but not that much and there is Belgian yeast taste it is there but its seems like a totally separate taste from the rest of the beer. Its actually pretty weird the taste is there but its not integrated at all idk why it is really there.
M: Thin and watery kind of oily it has a crispness to it and it is light and drinkable but nothing special here
O: Well I got this as an extra so I can't be disappointed and it is drinkable for almost 7% abv but that is about the only upside as it is a yellow fizzy mess in all other regards, I'm not a fan.

4.06/5 rDev +7.7%
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
