I had this at the November Baltimore Area BA tasting. Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.
Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy amber color with a golden hue. There is a very mild layer of off white head.
Smell: Sweet up front. There is a hint of cooked vegetables that I assume comes from the yeast. Just a touch of fruit with a slight warmth from the alcohol.
Taste: This is a very sweet beer given that it's supposed to be a Belgian IPA. I'm getting some Belgian spice and candy sugar. The bitterness shows up more in the finish with the malt backing it up. There is a hint of cooked veggies here too.
Mouthfeel: The body is just on the syrupy side of medium with light, tingly carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: I thought this beer was slightly weird. The cooked veggie note wasn't my favorite. I don't think I'd want more in the future.
