Bottle from ABS Drinks outside Brussels. From notes. Split with a friend.

A - Dark copper with no visible carbonation. Slightly hazy with a thin cap of beige head.

S - Citrus and grapefruit with a tingly note or pineapple.

T - Citrus and bread. Pineapple is obvious.

M - Medium carbonation with a full body and not overly bitter.

O/D - Underwhelming. Not a hop bomb at all. Not overly hoppy but not bad. Not what I expected and just not all that great.

A - Burnt copper colored beer with a bit of a foam head that dissipated to a little bit of lace and stick on the sides.

S - Some citrus and fruity hops as well as some earth and pine notes. A little bit of caramel backbone with some barnyard funk and yeast.

T - Burnt sugar and caramel malts, some ethery yeast, spice and herbal/earthy hops. Not my favorite style, but this isn't bad at all.

M - Medium bodied, dry finish, moderate carbonation.

O - A pretty nice beer, enjoyed drinking it. Tastes more like a Belgian DIPA though. If nothing else, it's a pretty Belgian take on a DIPA.
