2.15/5  rDev -41.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

On draft at Russel House Tavern.

Dark amber, minimal off white head.

Mildly spicy nose. Not that much hop aroma. Was this not dry hopped?

Flavor is dull. Seriously lacking in hops. The whole beer rests on the belgian yeast profile. Soapy slightly bitter finish. Grapefruit rind. Abv is somewhat unnoticeable. It felt over carbonated and a little too dry.

I've had this at a couple festivals and I thought it was somewhat different then but it wasn't something that did much for me then. This might be a batch variation. The belgian ipa trend is sort of played out. I'm not really sure this beer has reached what it is trying to be anyways.

Serving type: on-tap

2.63/5  rDev -28.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Poured chilled in ale glass chez White

A: light straw color; medium head; lots of floaties; very good lacing
S: Belgian style yeast is most prominent; aroma is a bit sour, not very inviting
T: bitter, estery, not wel balanced; needs a bigger malt profile to match the aggressively sharp flavors that dominate;
M: buzzy, quite nice

Not a great specimen of the IPA (my favorite in the genre is Raging Bitch)

Serving type: bottle
