From the 16.9 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 18, 2014.

Cloudy, medium amber pour with a modest off-white head.

Check out those floral and perfume hop aromas on the nose. They're penetrating! Some buried roasted malt but mainly hops.

The body is in the medium range but it is also kind of chewy in texture.

The first couple of sips are hopped to the max. It does have 106 IBU's. But it seems to mellow as it goes along and warms up. But the hops penetrate the senses and the taste buds with the malt notes taking a distant second...or even third or fourth.

Pours a cream, three-finger head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Murky amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Hoppy clove nose, flavor some grapefruit hops with hints of caramel. Lingering bitterness. Pricey at $7.75 for a 500ml bottle from Bert's Better Beers Hooksett NH. Bottled 1/4/2014.

500ml bottle (10/17/13) poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - A bit of a gusher out of the bottle, but managed to contain it in the glass without losing any. As is typical with gushers, this pours with a huge three fingered fluffy off-white head with outstanding

S - Very spicy on the nose...in fact quite Belgiany in character. I don't see anything on the label describing this as a Belgian DIPA, but it certainly smells like it. Plenty of yeast derived esters, spiciness - especially cloves, even a bit of earthy funk for good measure (maybe accidentally Brett infected?). I have to say this actually smells excellent - wasn't expecting the Belgian but certainly enjoying it.

T - Flavor mirrors the aroma almost perfectly...got exactly what the aroma indicated. Nice estery Belgian yeast - spicy and I'm still sticking by the funkiness - earthy with some horse blankets kicked in. Soft, buttery malt base, dry and biscuit as well. Hop bitterness is at a high level, firm and crisp with some nice grapefruity citrus flavors mingled in.

M - Medium body with a firm carbonation. Crisp and tingly in feel with an overall dry impression. Spicy and funky - very Belgian in character overall.

O - Not really sure that this tastes the way it was intended, but at the moment I don't much care. I came in expecting a straight forward DIPA and got a beer that had a lot more character to it - a nice surprise. It has been a long time since sampling Midnight Sun's 3767 (a personal favorite), but this is quite reminiscent of that beer. Love the funky brett character here. This was a very pleasant surprise for me.
