Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip glass.

A- Pours deep burnt orange with only about a finger of white head. Had a good amount of chill haze but cleared a good bit as it warmed.

S- Sweet and with a Belgian yeast character of light spice and bubblegum. Getting a bit sweet apricot and some citrus of mostly sweet grapefruit. Some of the ABV is coming out as it warms as well but the yeast and hops are doing a good job of covering it up.

T- Similar to smell, pretty sweet especially for an IPA, getting that Belgian yeast character, apricot and grapefruit, not a real big bitterness. Slight bit of lingering pine.

M- This one is like maple syrup a real sipper for me.

O- Not really a fan of this or really Belgian IPAs in general. I just don't find the yeast and a big hop profile to be very complementary. On top of that I find this too sweet and pretty expensive at around $17 for a 4pack of pint cans, I mean that's more than even marked up Heady 4packs! I wish I liked more stuff from Vivant but most of the stuff I've had from them just hasn't connected with me.

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 :)
