2.86/5 rDev -26.7%
Bottle: Poured a deep orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of citrus hops with quite a bit of residual sugar with light spicy notes. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with light spicy yeast notes and an overly sweet aftertaste. Body is quite full with carbonation that is a bit too low for style and no apparent alcohol. Original concept of this beer appears interesting but lack of attenuation and overly sweet finish ruins it for me.

2.95/5 rDev -24.4%
On tap at Iron Fist Brewing Company in Vista, CA.
Pours a slightly hazy honey brown with a tan head that settles to a an oily film on top of the beer. No lacing on this one. Smell is somewhat fruity along with some notes of vinegar and nail polish remover. Taste is really just a mixture of fruity flavors. There is a medium bitter finish after each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer and the smell is a bit weird. When I tried this one there is no way I would have guessed it is supposed to be a Belgian IPA.

3.5/5 rDev -10.3%
On-tap at Little Bear - a 25cL pour served in a large tulip; brief review from notes:
Faintly cloudy burnt orange liquid with a beige half-finger of soft foam. Delicate lacing and good retention.
Spicy hop-oil aromatics - floral with winter fruit.
Moderately bitter, earthy, husky, and fruity flavor profile. The variety of flavors is good, but they are poorly integrated. Alcohol is well hidden throughout, there being additional body and flavor but no solvent-y notes in the nose or on the palate.
Lightly carbonated, creamy, and warming mouth-feel.
A decent ale, though it comes up lacking compared to the best examples of the style. Worth re-visiting in the bottle, as I find most Belgian styles better with bottle conditioning.
