Absolutely fantastic. A great sweetness of tropical fruit, with a mix of citru,s and a hoppy, pine like finish. The sweetness nicely cuts the bitterness and leaves you with a perfect taste. Worth the $18 for a 4-pack. I bought 3 :)

Brewery Vivant did an amazing job with this Belgian inspired Double IPA. For a Double IPA, it was very well balanced and not over hopped. The citrus flavors and mouthfeel tied this beer together.

can into tulip

appearance: clear amber/dark copper, slight 1 figner white head

smell: apple, dark fruits, pear, some grapefruit, caramel, minor coriander, belgian yeast, lemon zest, earthy sweet malts

taste: Wow this is one tasty beer, never tried it until now and was blown away. Off the bat you taste that signature belgian yeast you would find in a belgian golden/strong ale, but it's quickly followed by some highly citric orange, apple, pear, some grapefruit, and lemon notes. The malt backbone pokes its head out somewhere in the middle, and is very sweet and smooth, getting some minor dark fruit notes here as well. The finish is an earthy, sweet, tropical bitterness that lingers and leaves your mouth wanting more. The alcohol is completely masked by the tropical notes and bitterness... resiny hop bitterness that's not overwhelming like some other palate wrecker's out there. Amazingly balanced, can't say anything bad about this beer, so refreshing i'm' about to drink the whole 4-pack.

mouthfeel: medium to high carbonation, full bodied for a DIPA, thick feel

overall: A damn good DIPA, one of the best the state of MI has to offer. Seek this out if you like hops and well crafted beer, can't really say anything bad about this one. Might be to early to proclaim, but this easily may become one of my favorites.
