750ml corked & caged. And what on earth is a Belgian IPA? I suppose I bought this one to find out. It hits the glass murky golden tan with a thin but determined light tan head and a hint of lace. The smell is honey, coriander, caramel. Seems more belgian than ipa so far. The taste is floral, caramel, peppery, with an element of mown grass and a very dry finish. Very odd mix. It grows on me, though. The mouthfeel is very soft & silky, with nice carbonation balance. Drinkability is good enough to polish off the bottle. Probably won't enter the regular rotation but definitely an experience to have.
Serving type: bottle

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
