A: Poured from the bottle into a Duvel tulip. Body is honey-amber in color with a small (1/2-finger) ivory head. Leaves some splotchy lace.

S: Sprucey hops, citrusy hops and a bit of spice.

T: Light biscuity malt up front. Floral and citrusy -- think grapefruit -- juicy hops. Peppery spice. Lingering dry bitterness.

M: Medium feel.

D: Very good if you like hops.

Notes: Didn't get much of a "Belgian" sense here. More of a lighter American DIPA with a touch of spice.

Served in a standard pint glass at Pout Judgement in Newport, RI.

The beer pours deep amber color with a white head. The aroma of Belgian yeast is prevelant, with some floral hop notes. Taste is bready malts combined with the Belgain yeast and grapefuity American hops. Has an overall dry finish with a little alcohol at the end. Overall, a good-balanced Americanized version of a Belgain classic that is very drinkable.

Clear orange/amber colour with a thin layer of white bubbles coating the surface of the beer. Short-lived, streaky lacing and decent head retention. Caramel and toasted bread in the aroma, fruity and powdery, a bit yeasty. The flavour was surprisingly mild and balanced - I was expecting something more bombastic. Malty and fruity up front, a bit of alcohol, some citrus and spice towards the end along with sugary sweetness, followed by a slightly bitter and somewhat quick finish. Pretty easy drinking for the abv. Light peppery warmth, a bit dry, medium to full bodied with lowish, nearly creamy carbonation. I liked this and enjoyed it. I'm glad I have another bottle in the fridge.

Poured from bottle into my bruges snifter.

A. Pours a hazy copper orange with amber highlights. Thick, fluffy, eggshell head amazing retention and lacing. This one would not release of the side of the glass.

S. Nice hoppy aroma, with citrus, mango and passion fruit. The Belgian yeast is definately noticeable.

T. Definitely a Belgian. A great balance between the unique flavor of Belgian yeast and a hoppy American IPA. Nice bitterness with a smooth malt finish.

M. Medium body with nice carbonation. Nice hop bitterness thats not overbearing. At over 8% ABV, there is a slight warming effect, but its not unpleasant..

D. This is a great beer thats blurs the lines between a great Belgian ale and an American IPA. I think there is a place for this beer in my fridge anytime. I will drink this any day.

A: poured a translucent light brown with orange highlights and had a thin bubbly head leaving a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: piney hops are present with some belgian yeast character but had slight spice, citrus, and caramel notes.

T: the belgian yeast flavors were also apparent on the palate with hoppy, citrusy, caramel accents and a touch of spice.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, yeasty, citrusy, and piney hoppy bitter finish.

D: drank good and was surprised on the flavor the second time around.
