Poured from a can into a Jester King Funk and Sour Fest Tulip glass. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance: Beautiful Golden liquid, a moderate head that leaves behind a persistent crown that lasts until the end of the drink.

Smell: Lots of Apricot, floral and tropical hops. This is really nice.

Taste: Tropical hops, the apricot comes through here too. Only moderately bitter, which is nice. Some bready malts help balance the hops, belgian yeast makes an appearance too. The bitter, hoppy aftertaste lingers quite a while.

Mouthfeel: A moderate level of carbonation, really works well for this beer.

Overall: A solid Belgian IPA. I'll be sure to pick up a four pack of Heavy Machinery, regardless of which edition it is, every time I'm in Austin. (750 characters)

At first blush the Belgian IPA was like a hopped up Belgian Trippel which is right in my wheelhouse. It was very similar to the Green Flash Le Freak which I loved as well. On to the formal review: It poured a light golden yellow with a pillowy white head. The fruity Belgian yeast notes are apparent on the aroma along with floral and grassy hops. The taste was pure bliss. Fresh fruity Belgian trippel tones were quickly followed by citrus and slight pine hops that added a flavorful bitterness while not totally overpowering the Belgian trippel notes. The Belgian IPA was a well crafted beer with the differing flavors playing off each other perfectly without one overwhelming the other while maintaining a full flavor experience. This is one phenomenal brew. (770 characters)
