I don't understand how one can mistake this for anything other than a Belgian IPA. I've tasted something similar to (if not exactly like) this maybe a handful of times in the past few months (Hop - Ruiter comes to mind)
It's pleasant enough recipe that apparently a few Belgian breweries have shared and produced...
A: quite cloudy/hazy, light amber in color...white, cottony head - not as well retention I had hoped for, decent broad rings of lace though....tons of chunky sediment left in the bottle, a couple specs in the glass....looks dirty
S: like a Belgian IPA - nothing out of the ordinary....grapefruit, grain husk, floral perfume, and a bit of smoke or rubbing alcohol....lady-finger/sponge-cake...when it's all said and done, it's really like a waxy caramel wrapper spritzed with hop perfume...all very hazy
T: nothing special - nothing particularly unique....reminds me of a few hoppy blonde/pale Belgian ales....spicy alcohol, tobacco...piney and/or herbal bitterness/flavor in the aftertaste (could be sediment, but it's the most interesting thing about the beer)...flower petals, lingering phenolic and light caramel notes in the aftertaste, citrus pith as well....the hops provide merely a subtle enhancement to the overall taste
M: soft, kind of smooth....touch of burn/tingle late in the finish....pretty well balanced between foam wash and light-medium roll...dry with and alcoholic warmth that lasts awhile
O: Why this costs $24 for an 11oz bottle, I don't know. I can get a bomber of something comparable for maybe up to $10 less. F'n hype....If they're honestly trying to create an American IPA, they've missed the mark

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku (semi-proper!) Poured a slightly hazy red-orange with a one finger slightly off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, caramel, caramel hop, citrus, fruit, and spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus, citrus hop, fruit, spice, earth, earthy hop, and subtle caramel. It had a medium feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. Upon first inspection of the aroma I found myself to really take a liking to this one. A very nice well balanced bouquet going on with nice notes of fruit and citrus to keep you interested. The flavor however had more of a spicy and earthy note than anything else. The citrus was still there but definitely nowhere near as pronounced as I would have enjoyed. Worth trying if you get the chance.

Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange amber. One finger fine white head with good retention and great lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, floral hops, caramel. Flavor is complex; sweet and biscuit malt, herbal, quite floral hops, light fruit. Dry, grassy hop finish. Nice medium to heavy bodied with creaminess; good mouth feel. A very interesting take on an IPA. I'm not sure what category to place this under; it's an IPA, but too unusual to fit the English IPA standard, so I chose to categorize it as an American IPA. Interesting and flavorful.
