Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color; very thick foam with plenty of lacing

Smell: Pound cake, peaches and husky grain

Taste: Not as sweet as the aroma would suggest, the beer opens with a bready character, with herbal and husky flavors developing in the middle; a hint of lemon arrives, after the swallow and the finish is rather bitter

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Rather unusual for a Belgian IPA and doesn't taste particularly Belgian to me; the malt is a bit on the sweet side, the yeast imparts an herbal character and the hops are bitter - but a Belgian IPA should be more than that

Thanks, fredmugs, for the opportunity

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Murky dark yellow brown color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.75 S: Hops and Belgian yeast spiciness rule the nose. Clove foremost with pepper underneath. Hops are a combination of herbal, earthy, and floral in that order. Sugary with yeasty breadiness. Pretty good.

3.25 T: Moderate bitterness. Again plenty of clove and pepper spiciness. Hops are again herbal, earthy, and floral. Yeasty breadiness. Not a whole lot else from the base. The flavors mesh a lot better in the nose. Despite a moderate bitterness, it comes off as unbalanced.

3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Neither creamy, nor spritzy and it needs one of these.

3.00 D: It's decent but the taste and the mouthfeel as pretty weak.

Poured into a tulip from a bomber.

A - Nice golden honey on pour with a big fluffy one finger head that clings to the glass and has good retention.

S – Fruity esters jump out first with a touch of that old familiar Belgian yeast funk. Some clove in there as well as green apple.

T – Nice burst of orange, lemon and grapefruit up front. Little bit of an earthy, pine taste. She has a nice bite of bitterness in there. It grabs you and goes though and does not linger on the palate. Shade bit of maltiness in there as well.

M – Quick bitterness and off it goes. Leaves you wanting more. Crisp and dry with the fruit lingering on the palate.

O – Nice job here. I love the nice biting bitterness and the fruity flavors that come through. Felt like an easy drinker and it was. You could easily have a couple of these and enjoy a night. I am going to be needing more.
