look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Purchased at Brusin' Ales in Asheville,NC 02.26.2012.
Poured and enjoyed 02.29.2012.

A: Light copper color that is extremely clear. Lots of bubbles. Resilient, lofty thick, vanilla/cream head. Little-to-no lacing.

S: Orange peel with a slight sweetness.

T: Very smooth and dry with orange peel/citrus emphasis. Medium hoppiness that does not overstay its welcome.

M: Lighter, medium-thin body with perfect carbonation.

O: An absolutely beautiful beer that is excellently drinkable. The body is thin enough to go down easy, but a wonderful dry and short lived hop taste keeps you tasting all the way down.

Pours a brown golden color with lots of frothy head. Some citrus in the aroma, as the hops are overpowered by the Belgian yeast and malts.

Taste is smooth for an IPA that seems to more of a DIPA. Well-balanced, but the malt definitely is in control over the hops. Compared to American IPAs, this isn't all that hoppy.

Overall, not bad. Nice aroma, but too much malt even for a Belgian IPA.
