On tap, Tyler's Tap House in Durham

A- pours clear and copper colored with a one-finger creamy white head that retains nicely, leaving good lacing behind

S- nice classic Belgian yeast aroma, slightly phenolic, some piney hops notes, also picking up some banana and clove

T- the powdery and musty Belgian yeast flavors mix greatly with the hoppy notes, citrusy mid-palate leads to a dry finish with more yeast and citrus hops on the linger

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a slightly warming finish. ABV is hidden pretty well

O- when done correctly, I love Belgian IPA's and this is a great blend of two styles. One of the best everyday Belgian IPA's out there.

taken from old notes

A: 1” off white head. Excellent retention and lacing. Clear deep copper body.

S: Nice citrus and earthy hop notes, with some yeast, clove, and dark fruit.

T: Clove, sweet malts, and some funk battle bitter grassy/earthy hops throughout. The hops win – thank goodness.

M: Medium+ body. Fine carbonation. Smooth, with a biting bitter hop finish.

O: Alcohol pretty well restrained. Great beer, but I'd have enjoyed it more without the belgian spice/yeast.
