Purchased as a single can from Total Wine, Tampa. Pours a semiopaque amber with white, pillowing head. Smells of tree-fruit, fig, berry, strawberry, and pine. Tastes like a berry IPA; lots of sweet, blueberry syrupyness followed by malts and caramel. Hints of dried apple and plantain throughout with "Belgian spice" (coriander/ginger/clove/etc.) and hops on the tail-end. A velvety body permeates sweetness throughout while the prickly carbonation that follows punctuates the hops and spice. The more I sip this beer, 2 things come to mind: First, that it feels like an American IPA & Belgium Triple hybrid and two, that it would go great with a bowl of strawberry cough.

Great IPA. Moderate pine aroma. Strong pine bitterness flavor.
