4.03/5 rDev +0.2%
Poured a golden orange body with good head and moderate lacing, thanks to active carbonation, on top of a bountiful aroma of citric and grape like hops that mix, not overpower, with Belgian yeast and some sweet (candi sugar?) malt and orange peel as well. This beer is smooth, not too spicy or bitter or anything that may have gone wrong with combining "western style" hops with a Belgian IPA. I find the balancing act a succesful one as there is some sweetness in this beer, both malty (candi sugar, caramel, I think) and touches of tropical fruit (tangerine comes to mind for some reason, as does apricot) but also a spicy, strong hop presence (more orange, citric, touches of grape). Finishes with crisp bite and alcohol is well contained. Overall, a pretty good and interesting beer and not too many like this one are around.

4.43/5 rDev +10.2%
Enjoyed this bomber bottle out of a Beligan Tulip glass.
A: Pours a cloudy orangish-copper hue with a white, 4-finger, frothy head that slowly dissipates leaving a great trail and solid lace.
S: Sweet tangerine fruity aroma.
T: Sweet tangerine and spicy flavor with a good hop profile. Ends of the sweet fruity side of bitter.
M: Medium body and medium carbonation.
O: This is one of the combination beers that actually works. Complex flavors and aromas.
