Just incredible. Most DIPAs gain some semblance of balance through sweetness, but this has quite a bit of depth to it. Many Belgian beers can be too sweet for me, but here the hops and tripel-style alcohol/sweetness are well balanced.
Mouthfeel is good, stays on the palate for a relatively long time.
Appearance- somewhat hazy, like a hef or wit.
Taste- balanced, as above.
Smell- you get both the Belgian and the IPA out of the smell, which would seem to be the goal.
Overall- try it. A lot of American breweries are putting out Belgian IPAs, and this is my current standard for them.
Serving type: bottle
