Poured into glass from bottle. Cool label.

Poured with small head, white with thin lacing. Appeared dark amber-gold, slightly cloudy.

I felt the aroma was fantastic - orange citrus, some malts and hops.

Taste was great - definitely could taste the fruits and spices, hops present a bit but not as much as expected, and sweeter then I expected. matched the aroma quite well.

Mouth feel was a bit thin I thought, but did not bitter. High on carbonation side.

This was an easy f=drinking Belgian IPA, but not what I would expect out of that style of beer. I would drink again.

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.
