A weak Belgian beginning to the taste followed by an unbalanced tart/bitter after taste. The smell was pretty faint and didn't really help the beer much. The mouthfeel was probably the strongest feature of this beer but thats only if you can ignore the aftertaste. Maybe a Belgian IPA just isn't for me...

A - Pours a very dark gold/orange color. Mild white head, slow retention.

S - Bready, mild hoppy, a bit citrusy.

T - I was expecting more of a Belgian style to this, I was really expecting this to give off that classic coriander and orange bursts of freshness; however, this was not even close. Very subtle notes of fruitiness. Nice breadiness. The finish is very good, it has this bite that for some unexplained reason will leave you wanting another sip.

M - For such a light bodied beer, it is abnormally carbonated, it has enough to leave that coke on a warm day feeling. Finishes dry leaving you wanting to have another sip.

O - I think brews like this are a great advance in perfecting the Belgian-IPA's; however, this beer was confusing. The Belgian and IPA styles were not harmonically blended. This brew seemed to be working against itself rather than harmoniously working together. It was mild on the hops, the Belgian style, the everything. All in all, it definitely is an average beer to me.

Drank from my Duvel tulip

A - Pours a clear copper colour with almost no head that remains as a film

S - Piney hop

T - Hops and malts, not much Belgian here

M - Medium body and carbonation.

O - This is not a BIPA for me. The style should have far more candied sugar, and Belgian yeast qualities and be balanced. This is a hop driven beer that could pass for an APA or IPA. The original style was developed by Belgian breweries and was distinctly different to traditional IPA's. Nonetheless a very nice beer in its own right. Had to mark down because of the style.
