look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: single finger off white head with poor retention on a amber gold body. nice lacing.

S: floral, orange citrus, black pepper and lots of herbal notes.

T: resiny hops, light citrus, caramel and lightly toasted malts, peppercorn and woody/oak notes.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: flavorful but not really memorable. pretty drinkable but the odor turns you off a bit. Just not quite belgian enough for me.

Single bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Poured into a Duvel goblet.

Light amber-golden, slightly hazy, with a pillowing head of foam that survives as little islands. Some lacing.

Nose is bittering hops, grass, some funk, heavy grain.

Decent Belgian IPA, with a good balance of grain/funk of the Belgian ale style with some juicy grassy hops providing a nice counterpoint.

Nice brew - I certainly picked this brew up because of the name/label and the controversy that surrounded that, but it holds its own fairly well.

16oz pour, Solo cup
Had on cask at Deer Park in Newark, DE at the Newark Beer and Wine Fest in July '12. (this is supposed to be with chipotle peppers added as well).

A: Pours a really cloudy orange amber color. Off white egg shell head. Some lacing sticking to the glass. Can't see much though, as I'm drinking it from a opaque plastic solo cup.

S: Fruity hops. Bready English style malts. Orange marmalade. Spice from the peppers is in there even on the nose, along with the spice from the Belgian yeast they used.

T: You get some bitterness right up front. Then it's sweet malts, Belgian yeast spice, and the chipotle pepper heat. The heat drifts to the back of the throat and sticks with you. Don't taste the ABV at all...because of the heat probably.

M: Medium bodied. Spice coats the mouth.

Bought a six-pack to try it out. My wyfe actually liked it; she doesn't like any beer. lol

A: Pours a nice copper color, clear with small bubbles rising through the glass and a creamy white head the subsides to a thin coating and leaves lots of lacing.

S: Belgian yeast, subtle hops aroma, malt, fruity ... bananas and citrus

T: The taste mirrors the aroma. The bitterness doesn't linger but lets you know it is there.

M: On the high end of light bodied, almost medium. No carbonation sting, no alcohol aftertaste.

O: I will buy this again. A nice IPA for a hot summer evening. It would go really well with a sharp cheese.
