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)

Pours a three finger cream head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Almost clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light pine hop nose, flavor is more grapefruit than pine, the Belgian yeast helps mellow the hops. Lingering bitter aftertaste. $8.49 for a 22oz from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA.
