Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Hazy amber-yellow pour with an off-white two finger head with good retention and lacing. Very tropical and earthy nose with hints of pineapple and mango along with orange peel, caramel, bready malt and a touch of apricot. The nose follows suit with hints of pineapple, apricot, pine, grapefruit, mango, candy sugar, caramel, and a bit of grass and biscuit as well. Not your typical Belgian IPA as this leans a bit more towards the West Coast. The mouthfeel is a bit fizzy and slightly oily and boozey on the finish. I had this on tap at Moeder Lambic in Brussels last week and forgot to ask if it was the Special Edition version as it was much bolder with a huge fresh hop character. This bottled version is still a very solid IPA, but I preferred the draft.

On tap at moeder lambic this was a sleeper hit in my book and made the trip. As others have said its red-orange, white head. What I appreciated is a smoothness to the middle and finish that helped make it work so well. Good for De Musketiers to take on the big guys and come up with this hit.

An amazing beer for anybody. Such a beautiful orange color, big juicy body, all while being finished extremely hoppy and bitter. A true Belgian "Triple IPA", and a must try for American IPA fan. My favorite part of this beer is the craftsmanship that goes in to the head, retention, and lacing. So big and white, with both fluffy and sticky characteristics. One could spend 30 minutes just admiring the head before sipping the beer. Big hit in my world.
