A- Clear, light amber body. Creamy 1/2 finger head with nice sticky lacing.

S- Tropical fruit and pineapple dominate. Orange, peach, fresh hops, a little pine, a touch of caramel, and earthy hop spices. Very inviting. After the glass was empty, the residue smelled like bananas.

T- Sweet tropical fruit, grapefruit, orange, and light pine up front. Resinous pine, some earthy hop spice, grapefruit, and rind on the finish. Awesome caramel backbone flows underneath basically from beginning to end.

M- On the thicker side of medium. Oily and resinous with nice carbonation. Coats the entire mouth. Nice lingering bitterness without being too much.

O- This was a damn good beer. It had huge aromas and flavors, and was extremely well balanced. There was a lot going on, and it all was awesome. I would have again in a heartbeat.

Comparing this Belgian IPA to likes of Piraat, Wild Ale is much different, resembling more an American IPA. American Hops are evident, with a tad of sweetness. Aroma of molasses, pine, and light fruitiness. Carbonation is high, feels almost like drinking soda. Full bodied, non-existent head. Bitter (pleasant) aftertaste lingers for a little bit. Overall, decent Ale, but was looking forward to try this and it did not meet my expectations.
