Pours a medium copper color with a white wispy head that fades to a ring. Aroma of citrus, honey, hoppy floral, and apple cider.
In the taste, expressive Belgian yeast that is times spicy and peppery, but there is a semi wild, bordering acetic taste. Pale malts and a tempered semi sweet flavor. There is a moderate hop bitterness which is really not the story here. This ale is proof that quality yeast makes quality beer. Medium bodied with a drying, spicy finish. Really impressive brew here from Weyerbacher. Add it to the big beer case! A great Belgian inspired strong golden ale.

Sampled at Extreme Beer Fest

A-Pours a lighter copper color.

S-Aroma is decidedly Belgiany. There is a solid amount of caramel and spice. Also, I am getting some pretty legit citrusy notes as well.

T-Thick maltiness. Caramel and bread with spice and some fruity esters. Grapefruit and grass flavors as well. Not too aggressive with the Belgian yeastiness.

M-Fuller bodied. Moderate bitterness with some noticeable alcohol. Moderate carbonation.

O/D-A hearty Belgian IPA. I could stand to see the hops be a bit livelier and more central to the flavor.

Honey golden hue with a finger and a half of foam that sprouted after the pour. Some lacing.

Spicy American hops in the nose with a heavy-duty booze punch. Spiny bitterness with thick leafiness and nectary dankness. Hints of stone fruit and navel orange from the hops/yeast. Hard to get past the obvious alcohol.

Tangy malt base with esters of white grape and peach. Some green apple, but all of this fruitiness is massacred by hop bitterness, high-pitched alcohol heat, and a rye-like spiciness. A little full-blown for a Belgian-style beer. Brash, maybe, with liberal license of American bittering hops. Light pine is a secondary flavor. Malts support the ale with a biscuity character. Gets a little softer, as it warms.

Great mouthfeel. Oily hop residue lubricates the palate. Surprisingly, thinner body, in feel. Carbonation balances nicely.

While I'm typically not a fan of strengthened Belgian IPAs, this one drinks very well. It's certainly a bruiser, and doesn't hide from it, in flavor. Almost two thumbs up.
