Poured into a Dogfish Head IPA glass.

A - 4.25 - Looks identical to apple juice in color. Ridiculous head potential, foamed up quick, forming a 4 finger, slightly off white colored head. Good head retention and nice solid lacing.
S - 3 - Strange. Sweet hops, grapefruit and oranges, but also some spices such as clove and nutmeg, lots of yeast and that distinct, bubblegum aroma that Belgian goldens have.
T - 2 - Not liking this one bit. Upfront there is a nice sweet citrus taste, but it quickly fades to the aforementioned spices and bubblegum of the aroma.
F - 4 - Standard expected mouthfeel.
O - 2 - To me, this is not a Belgian style IPA but rather an IPA mixed with a Belgian golden and tripel. I understand that Belgian yeast strains are used in the production, but there is just way too much bubblegum and spice in this for me to call it an IPA at all. Didn't enjoy this one bit and thus cannot recommend it.

Belgian fruity smell. Belgian yeast and banana up front and hoppy, citrusy, pine in the back.
