Poured out of a 16 oz can into a Belgian snifter.

A - Pours with a hazy amber body topped by a well-propotioned and durable off-white head. Excellent lacing.

Aroma: Complex - Nutty yeast aromas mix with hops, some bready malts and faint fruits. Excellent balance.

T: Nutty, yeasty, lightly funky, moderately hoppy, slightly fruity and floral. Nice complexity and good balance. The lingering, mildly bitter aftertaste is especially pleasant for this style.

M - Medium-bodied with crisp, medium+ carbonation.

Overall: a well crafted Belgian IPA worth seeking out.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #65 (June 2012):

LOOK: Thick head, hazed pale amber

SMELL: Passion fruit, mint, earthy, papaya, spicy, yeast, alcohol, biscuity, herbal

TASTE: Smooth, bitter, hop resin, citric, herbal, biscuity, tropical fruit, yeast, slight warming alcohol, green banana, faint phenols, pineapple skin, fresh tobacco; hoppy, dry finish

Nothing short of amazing, very well rounded with no compromise when it comes to the American IPA part of this brew. The Belgian side pulls its own weight; rustic but very drinkable. One of the best things this brewery did for this amazing brew is packaging it in a tallboy can. Hell yeah!

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance is a dark amber with lots of off-white, foamy head that slowly fades. Nice lacing.

Smell is grainy with floral hops.

Taste is a really nice balance between malty sweetness up front and spicy hop bitterness with the finish - maybe some clove flavors in there? Delicious.

Mouthfeel is very dry thanks to a light body and heavy carbonation.

Overall this is an excellent twist on the American style IPA - really like the dry finish and hop character.

Golden brown pour, slight haze. Four finger, off-white, highly perforated head that persists. Sweet, yeasty, bright floral nose. Faint medicinal and bubble-gum notes. Forward malt on the palate with hints of burnt candy sugar and lingering hop notes. Perfectly-balanced sweet and bitter. Beautiful, thick Belgian lace. Certainly moreish. Refreshing. The ABV is not evident. Some flocculence at the final pour.
