Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Golden coloured body with beige foamy head. Aroma is yeasty and malty. Lacey glass. Very fresh tasting, a thick mouthfeel it is very creamy. A bit of a tongue tinkler. A good IPA with integrated yeast, very drinkable. Carbonation is right there.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a copper color with an off white head. The lacing is good, but the formation and retention are not, probably due to a lousy pour.

This is supposedly the regular IPA made with Belgian yeast. It seemed darker and a little heavier than I remember, but the hop profile is about the same. This is definitely a IPA first with a minor Belgian twist. The nose has the same grassy hops that overshadow the Belgian fruitiness for the most part. The flavor brings some more of the Belgian yeast flavor, with a fruity finish to follow the bitterness. The caramel malts and hop bitterness are textbook IPA.

I would have liked a lighter mouthfeel to work with the Belgian aspect more. In fact, this seems a little less attenuated than the IPA I've had here in the past. This was a solid beer, but I liked it more out of curiousity for the Belgian twist than I did as a beer on its own.

Draught in Granby: This one pours a hazy orangish color. There was a small off-white head that linger long. It leaves a little lacing. The nose is mainly citrus hops, with a touch of pine. A hint of sweetness comes through also. The taste is very good. The hops are prevalent, but seem a bit more subdued than the normal IPA, thanks to the different yeast. Nice and bitter, but an underlying sweetness to it. Very Nice!
