Beer pours a hazy golden yellow color. A good 1 finger head is present and nice lacing is left in the glass. Beer has nice citrus hop aroma with a distinctive Belgian aroma due to the yeast that was used with pear and orange notes. Taste is fruity with pear and subtle orange notes followed by a citrusy hop aroma. Some malt flavor is present but is very subtle as it is not the focal point of this beer. Decent mount feel, carbonation was good for pale ale.
This is an interesting beer. Fermenting the beer with Belgian yeast gives this beer a unique twist I am not sure I have had before by adding a distinctive fruitiness not found in other Pale Ales I have had.

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
