I don't know what it is that turns me off about the smell, but I think it smells bad. When I first cracked open a bottle I thought I was getting into something I was going to regret.

Tastes hoppy. Tropical citrus flavors balanced by a bitter astringent flavor I can't put my finger on. Another reviewer called it an asprin flavor and I'm inclined to agree, although it isn't strong enough to ruin the flavor. Good balance.

Easy drinking, good amount of carbonation. Crisp.

Really not what I would expect from a Belgian IPA, but it's a good beer overall. Hard to score it too low because I really am enjoying it, but hard to score it too high because it isn't a great representation of the style. I'd buy it again. The higher ABV goes virtually unnoticed.

Looks good. The nose is typical Belgian in character. The flavor is a bit too tangy, for the style. Certainly, there are some spicy hop tones on there, but there is a soapy sweet tone that is a bit too much. This is decent, but it's not quite there really. Especially with so many others of this style available. Nice beer, but not quite the Belgian IPA I'd hope for.
