Brand new this week in the Dallas area. I poured it into a Duvel glass. It's a very cloudy brown color with a small but thick-n-creamy head. Nose is full of a grassy, resinous hoppiness, with some sweet nutty malt underlying it. Flavor though, is somewhat harsh, with a raw hop flavor (slightly vegetal) that is interesting if not exactly tasty. Malt and yeasty fruitiness add to the flavor but unfortunately remain in the backseat. Dry finish.
Interesting, but unfortunately not very drinkable. If laid down for a year or more, it might lose enough of the hop edge to be tasty.

From notes at the brewery on 10-17-13
A - Slightly hazed yellow gold with one finger of fizzy white head medium lacing.
S - Nice tropical notes of pineapple and a little mango, belgian yest and some spice.
T - Very good flavor, those tropical notes are front and center followed up by a nice spicy clove and even a slight slight hint of mint, finishes more on the tart citrusy side.
M - Dry but not dehydrating kinda dry, crisp.
O - Very good blend of american IPA and a belgian, tons of flavor.
Serving type: on-tap
