22 oz bomber (no apparent bottling date) poured into a tulip glass.

A - Cloudy ruby red, with a fluffy one finger head that hangs around for a while.

S - Banana, clove, grains, and a slight off smell that I can't place. Whiff of heat.

T- Trippel flavors hit first, followed by a fairly moderate malt bill, then some peppery spice on the back end.

M - The mouthfeel is thick, even with an above average carbonation that gives off a prickliness at times, and a dry finish.

O - Other than some off smells in the beginning, this pans out to be a decent brew, an interesting mix, and worth a go.

Tap. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma of hops, citrus and grass. Tastes of bitter hops and citrus. Bitter aftertaste. Very good

This was a really good Belgian IPA. Almost made me understand why the style is thus named. There were nice yeast and malt notes like a good belgian ale, sweet and alcohol very present. But at the same time the hops just punched your tongue. I really liked this. I'd have it again any day, though it is for sipping slowly.
