Poured in to my Portsmouth tulip
A: This beer pours a an interesting orange, amberish color - not like any other beer that I've seen before. A two finger of slightly off white foamy, sudsy head. Head recedes at a moderate pace to a film, leaving wispy lacing left on the glass.
S: Nose is of BIG belgian yeast, cloved spicing, and light citrus notes.
T: Taste starts with a big clove and pepper spicing, the pepper is an underlaying flavor through start to finish. After the spicing notes at the forefront, a strong yeast flavoring comes through the middle. Nice citrus hop flavoring comes in to mingle with the yeast notes. Grapefruit citrus hops mingle with the yeast, before the grapefruit really takes over, with a mixture of slight clove and pepper.
M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry at first but then becomes oily with a sticky finish.
O: Goes down easy, quite tasty, somewhat filling, well hidden but big kick, interesting representation of style. This is a very interesting blend of belgian and IPA... enjoyable, but at 10% a bomber will more than do ya!

Deep clear golden hue, craggy white head that clings to the glass. Sweet sugary, dried, fruits, apples and apricots, faint tropical fruit, clove and spices. Sweet slick full mouth feel. A little syrupy. Honey suckle, sweet breads, tropical fruits and citrus, with some yeasty undertones and a touch of bitterness. Sweetness overrides though and to call this an IPA or hoppy is far off. Booze is heavy in the finish and while some bitterness exists, it lends to a semi-dry finish, with a long lingering sweetness. As a big boozy belgian blonde, this beer has lots of complexity with well blended flavors and even has a bit of complimentary hop. To call is a belgian ipa or a hoppy belgian is a little off though. Good beer, just misleading
