Poured from a 22oz bottle with a limited batch release number (17); into a tulip. This particular bottle indicates the ABV to be 6.7%.
Appearance - hazy dark gold with just a few carbonation trails intersecting with unfiltered floaters! Fluffy, white head that leaves sticky lacing as it slowly recedes. The final pour from the bomber, after a good swirl, yields a darker gold, almost orange with very cloudy, pulp-like sediment!
Smell - Belgian yeast, peach, mango, some pineapple. Far more Belgian characteristics than IPA in the nose.
Taste - more hops in the taste which contradicts the nose. The fruity flavors play well with the bitterness from the hops!
Feel - think hop forward Tripel; flavorful and complex, though the bitterness seems to linger oddly when I think I'd prefer a more mellow finish.
Overall - very good representation of this style and very enjoyable on a hot day!

Wow what an interesting style, I love IPAs and this union together really comes of fantastic. If you looking for something out of the norm, this shouldn't disappoint.

Appearance hazy orange

Smell is a sweet and I thought strong coriander aroma.

Taste really represents the the Belgian with the sweet fruit tones and then a citrusy burst.

Mouthfeel is so smooth and yet bitter.

Overall I will be getting some more of these to pass around the 4th of July festivities.
