Appearance: Big fluffy lace head. Hay/straw color. Hazy.
Smell: Malty, yeast, honey, slight bit if spices
Mouthfeel: light and traditional golden ale style feel,
Taste: malts, hops bitter left as an after taste, sweet honey malts transitions into biscuits then into the bitters.
Overall: solid beer. I have had better in the strong blond category. I could drink this all days.

Beer pours a cloudy dark golden body with a huge white head. The smell reminds me of a skunked beer. The taste is sort of skunky, slight bitter hops and sweet malt. There is a lot of carbonation behind this beer too.

A

pours a fully hazed dull straw yellow, frothy cumulus froth, white as snow, excellent lacing

the aroma is thick, cool that a scent can be described with dimension jargon
rich sweet powder sugared yeast

fruity citrus unnamed meld of sensations
very sweet

rich full somewhat firm mouthfeel shy of cloying

Malheur knows big, they don't seem to care about little
60 ibus don't come through, a grapefruit rind bitter
I believe in Malheur
cheers

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Can I get a forty of "Sixty" anywhere? Regardless, this stuff pours a partly-cloudy straw-brass topped by a couple fingers of lightly cream-white foam. The nose comprises bread, spicy Belgian yeast, light champagne grapes, a dash of black pepper, some light grass, and a touch of clove. The taste brings in more of the same, though it often comes off as yeast-laden white bread dipped in white wine. The body is a lithe medium, with a moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice enough Belgian offering, though the hops really aren't able to shine very brightly amidst the overpowering yeast and bread parts. Still, it's not bad.

A-Pours yellow/gold. Small sample but I can tell that this would birth quite a massive head.

S-Aroma is especially yeasty. All the Belgian spiciness pops up in the nose. Lacking a truly hoppy aroma. Noble hops are light. More about the yeast and alcohol.

T-Flavor is more of the same. Spicy Belgian yeast and a full, spiced-bready malt. Hops aren't potent enough for me. Wouldn't have guessed this was a Belgian IPA...if it even truly is.

M-Full bodied and hot. Carbonation was lively, which lifted the feel a bit. A sipper.

O/D-Not a fan of this beer unfortunately. Thankful I didn't shell out any more for this because I would have been disappointed.
