I've had a few other Belgian IPA's before and although I like them, there hasn't been one that ever blew me away. Until I had this. I bought a bottle of this on a Tuesday at my Binny's in Chicago and they had rows of them on the shelves. I went back on Friday to buy more and found out that this was totally sold out. So I guess this will be my only one for now...

Served from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass.

A- Pours a light golden, straw color with about 1 to 1 1/2 fingers of head. Slightly hazy when held up to the light.

S - It smelled a little bready with a slight piney / hoppy smell too.

T - The taste of this beer blew me away. I was expecting a lot of hops right away, but it was a nice, subtle, floral hoppiness. Not the normal citrusy / pine hops I've been getting in every IPA lately. The hops are balanced out by a very nice sweetness too. I'm guessing lots of Belgian candy sugar? I loved the taste of this.

M - Mouth feel was medium - not overly thick. The carbonation was really nice though, with fine little bubbles.

O - I don't have a ton of other Belgian style IPAs to compare this to, but this is definitely my favorite. A+

look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Honey golden straw with tons of haze, its hard to see through for being so light in color.

Smell: This is my favorite part of this beer I think. TONS of floral hop scent are present with a sweet candy like bite.

Taste: Matches the smell, delicious.

Another amazing beer by Pipeworks. If these guys continue to put out quality beer like this local Chicago brewers will need to watch out!
