A: The beer is dark golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation along with clumps of yeast floating near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a finger high white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose.
T: Just like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of yeast along with bits of pale malts and strong notes of spices, the later of which are most prominent and stand out in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: With all of the yeast, this beer feels a little heavier in body compared to what you would normally expect from a Belgian Pale Ale. I liked it because of the extra yeast.

Brassy colored and opaque, with dark streaks of copious sediment, and a big head that quickly dissipating like a layer of soap; nice flowery scent with grass, herbs, but quite muted; nice bitterness, not hugely complex, like a slice off the bitter end of an Orval; very effervescent in the mouth, with a touch of metal setting everything a-tingle, and I think that's a good thing.

On-tap. Nonic glass. Pale straw color, clear apperance. White froth, close & lasting crown. Copious spots on sides. Floral aromas & hints of sweet Belgian yeast to the nose. Gentle maltiness blowed up by sharp bitterness. Pine needles sensation. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Heavy citric astringency. Long bitter finish. Resins & fruits on the aftertaste. Well balanced Belgian IPA.

This beer poured a clear gold color with a small white head.

A musty, earthy aroma mostly. Some sweet malt.

Funky taste, bitter hops up front, bread background.

This was a very hop-forward beer. Very bitter. Not a lot of alcohol, but also not a beer that you're going to drink a lot of at one time.

On tap at Congregation Ale House in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with yeast and chalky flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great smell and tasty flavors.
