Enjoyed a 22 oz bottle poured in increments into a Belgian-style goblet, shared with a beer savvy buddy who brought this over for a dinner party that started off as a tasting and ended as a Phillips Hop Circle quaffing session. Fortunately I took decent notes during the tasting portion. Cool succubus type demon (or angel?) on the label. This Belgian IPA is a cloudy orange amber color with a nice robust beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, with some tropical fruit, floral, and spicy notes along with a spike of menthol, pleasant and assertive but not aggressive. Palate hits all the right buttons for a well-crafted Belgian IPA, with some citrus rind, unripe pears and apples, mixed peppercorns, fermented pineapple, herbal licorice, earthy black tea, and mellow pine resin all combining to yield an overall sweet, sour, perfumed, and spicy effect with less pungent alcohol than you often get in Belgian tripels and associated hoppy versions. The malts provide an unassuming sweet brown sugar note coasting along in the background. Thinnish well-attenuated body, moderate carbonation, and a fairly crisp and dry finish, with lingering sour fruit and tea-like hops tickling the palate. A very enjoyable Belgian, nice hop flavors with a little resin, a refreshing unripe fruit and citrus quasi-sourness, and downplayed alcohol taste that enhances drinkability. Apparently Idaho is about more than just potatoes.

Had on tap at SP taphouse in a 10oz. wide mouth short glass

A-pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass.

S-Aroma is pleasant with some pine, grapefruit and hints of yeast.

T-Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness.

M-Medium bodied with generous carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the tongue.

O-A nice Belgian twist on an India Pale Ale. I'm curious how the other brews by Selkirk are
