E is definitely not a Belgian IPA - it's a funky version of Edward (american pale ale) - fermented with brettanomyces, dry hopped with galaxy, and aged on stainless for four months. Basically, we refer to it as a farmhouse pale ale - a cross between a saison and an american pale.

2012 Release: Aged in Mimosa barrels.
2014 Release: Aged in wine barrels with resident yeast and microfloa for 1.5 years.

Thanks to Jones153 for the bottle!

Hazed pale orange colour, one finger of white head, good lace. Smell is musty and bretty, funk and citrus, well hopped, orange, peach and apricot with some oak as well. Taste is dry and oaky, fruity as well, apricot, fuzzy peach rings, nice hoppy/funky finish. Medium carbonation, medium-full body. Really solid stuff, another incredible offering from these guys.
