look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours out into the Duvel glass a lightly hazed, nice dark amber, almost copper, color with a 1/2” to 3/4" ivory white head and lots of lacing. The head recedes fairly soon leaving a thin island of foam and a nice ring around the glass that leaves patches of foam on the sides of the glass. There are speckles and legs of lacing when sipping.

The aroma is primarily pine and resin with some citrus and caramel malt providing the background.

While the malt backbone in this beer introduces the show it soon recedes to back up the resin, pine and citrus of the hops as they come out to play. While the malt backbone is always there, with its touch of sweetness, the hops and a bit of bitterness are the stars of the show.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a reasonable, light persistent carbonation that tickles the tongue. The finish is moderately long with some bitter herbal notes and a nice dry finish.

This is a nice, well-balanced IPA that is quite drinkable. Although the sweetness of the malt lasts for quite a while, the dry, lightly bitter ending leaves one ready for another sip and then another sip until the beer is gone (too soon it seems), leaving behind the temptation to open a second to follow the first. This beer has earned a place on my regular rotation list and I definitely recommend it when fresh.
