Pours a decent 1 1/2 finger head with fair retention and a yellow orange color which I can see through.
Smell is of well balanced of some banana and clovey spice with an overtone of apple throughout that becomes more apparrent as the beer warms.
Taste is balanced. Plenty of hop bitterness, but no where near overwhelming. Citrus hops come through but do not overpower the hops. It's nicely balanced. Residual sugars provide a sugary sweetness.
Carbonation is moderately low for the style, but it blens well with the underlying malt profile.
Very nice beer from flying dog. Let this one warm up for a while before judging. It gets dramatically better if you do.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Label says 139A14
A- Pours an orangeish medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Floral aroma of grassy hops and Belgian yeast. Sweet, fruity and spicy.
T- The banana and bubble gum notes of the yeast comes on first and then turns on its heels to meet the bitterness and vegetal flavor of the hops. Alcohol is decently masked and the taste remains interesting to the bottom of the glass.
M- Sharp from the hops and alcohol. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- This was probably the first Belgian IPA I'd ever had when I first tried it years ago and loved it. Still holds up today but I've certainly met other beers that attempt the same thing and do it better since then.
