750ml btl via Dajtai007 as an extra in a recent trade. Cheers for this!

Not sure I'd ever reach for this again if I was looking for an IPA. However, I would 100% drink this again.

This is dirty looking. I'm a huge proponent of brite beer and this is cloudy, opaque. Nicely colored and the head is very fluffy, leaves a good trail of sticky lacing.

The most evident part of IPA rears it's head straight from the bottle when it first opens with distinct hops aromas that really spreads its wings. Underneath you get the first inkling that this will not be a typical

The taste is heavily influenced by the Belgian flavors, banana, clove, bread. There is a lightly sweet malt portion and there are unmistakable hop notes throughout.

The mouthfeel is also impacted here, a more full bodied, richer body than is typical in an American IPA. There is no lightness to the body, or oil characteristic and the typical crisp bitter finish is absent.

Not sure what the underlying IPA tastes like, but this is a bit far from what I would expect when I reach for a bottle of this style. It's interesting, slightly different and enjoyable. That said, rating it for an IPA, this doesn't really hit the style better than average.
