4.3/5 rDev +8.9%
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.

4.29/5 rDev +8.6%
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow, a very beautiful color, with a diminished white head.
S: Grass, tangerine, a bit of yeast and pilsner malt notes, all somewhat light and clear, but in a good way.
T: Tangerine leads, with strong notes of honey, followed by a bit of grass and breadiness. Exceptionally smooth and rich, and very well balanced.
M: Fairly light body, with moderate carbonation. Rich and very smooth throughout.
O: I've been meaning to try this one for awhile, and I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this one--Belgian IPA seems to be a style with a lot of range, and this one was fruitier and smoother than many others I've had. I'll definitely have it again when it's on tap or when I come across a bottle.

3.99/5 rDev +1%
A - Pale clear yellow body with three full fingers of white head. Really nice retention but the lacing doesn't quite hold to the glass.
S - Huge sour lemon, orange, mint and floral hoppiness.
T - Moderate citrus bitterness along with orange notes of Belgian yeast and spiciness. Very subtle banana notes.
M - Light body and moderate/high carbonation. Very smooth, refreshing and very drinkable.
O - This was a great surprise. I tend to not like the Belgian flavor profiles to be strong, particularly the banana notes. This however was more restrained, and the biterness made a nice balance with the sour/sweetness. I wouldn't mind seeing an Imperial Belgian IPA with some more hop and ABV.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Label says Bottled September 2013.
A- Pours a semi-hazy medium amber color with a full two fingers of frothy white head that retains very well before melting down to a 1/4 inch head. Sudsy non-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.
S- Funky yeast aroma plays off the citrusy hops bringing notes of pineapple, mango and pear. There's also a decent amount of spice.
T- Taste is more Belgian yeast than hops as the phenols produce a tangy fruit flavor. The bitterness is there but more as an afterthought while the spices and richness from the yeast dance around it. Very smooth for the ABV.
M- Spritzy, tight and crisp. Medium-high carbonation with a lightish body.
O- Not exactly one of the best things Allagash has ever done, nor is it one of the best Belgian IPAs I've ever had, but it's good enough to make me want to revisit it if given the chance.
