Poured from a can into a Duvel tulip.

A. A hazy, carmel/honey colored beer with a 2 finger head. Perfect ring of lacing around the glass.

S. Big biscuity aroma with a mild touch of pine and herbs. Just a slight amount of citrus that I only got after some beer stuck to my nose.

T. Backs up the aroma but much more balanced. Much more fruity and juicy "almost a taste of banana or pear and a little plum" in the mouth and slightly piney. Just enough bitterness at the backbone to let you know it's an IPA. Delicious and quite independent from the normal citrusy/grapefruit taste in IPA/APA's. A welcome difference.

F. Medium bodied with a lingering mild crispness.

O. Yum! Delicious and fruity yet differentiates itself from many IPA/APA's out there. Looks great with some nice lacing and just enough bitterness. Very enjoyable and I will be looking forward to getting this again. Though it's odd the smell and taste don't agree, it just tastes great and I can get passsed that.
