3.29/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a Dogfish/Sierra Nevada IPA glass from a bottle with (date?) code 140204. Hazy golden with a nice head and a rich lacing down the glass. Aroma is moderate citrus and pine, but I'm not getting much Belgian character.

Taste is similar--dominated by citrus/pine notes. A very traditional IPA profile. Malt sweetness barely cuts through and fades quickly to be dominated by the hop bitterness in the finish. Barely noticeable Belgian earthy-pear-clove notes hiding behind the hops.

Overall not my favorite take on the belgian IPA. I had this next to the Hopbloem and I strongly prefer the fruity hops used in that one with Belgian yeast. This isn't as bad as some bigger Belgian IPAs since it's got a mild Belgian yeast character, but what is there still clashes with the hops for me.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Light straw colored with a thick head that leaves heavy lacing on the glass. The smell is largely of grass with some lemon as well. Feel is light, with light carbonation. Taste is grapefruit and pine with a light bitterness. Overall this holds together very well.
