A. An aggressive pour into a snifter got me a finger of head that dwindled rather quickly. It held on to the sides for a thicker ring than I normally get out of beer. Some nice lacing clings to the side of the glass throughout consumption. The body is a pleasant looking dark amber.

S. The IPA out-muscles the Belgian in the nose. I mostly get citrus hops with a touch of floral aromas, but you get just a hint of Belgian yeast if you really look for it.

T. Taste is much more complex than the aroma suggested. It starts off Belgian: Yeast, hints of dark fruit, a good spiciness, then dives into the IPA with a bit of malt than a bitter hop finish. This partnership of flavors really excited my palate, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

M. Medium bodied. Decent carbonation. The bitter on the end really builds if you drink it relatively quickly.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a minimal white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of malt, toasty caramel, marshmallow and spice. Those all carry over to the taste, and combine with the hops and flowers to give a distinct molasses note. The bitterness begins to come through as it warms a bit. Nice medium mouth that coats the tongue without being too oily. This isn't something I would drink frequently, but it's a really nice change of pace IPA.

This is only the second time I've tried this beer, and I'm finding that it tends to grow on you, and I've started to really like it. It's quite hoppy, but the bitterness of the hops makes for a good balance with the sweetness of the malt and the bite of the high ABV.

Overall, a very good beer. Clarity is outstanding. Quite hoppy. Also, the high ABV makes it very "relaxing."
