Poured into a snifter this beer pours brilliantly clear copper color with a moderate white head that diminished to a skim but leaves some bits of lacing. The aroma is a tango of spicy yeast character, fruity esters and citrus--lemony hops, nice. The initial flavor is largely spicy phenols, immediately replaced by moderate citrus hop flavor. The beer finishes with a dry hop bitterness that lingers and welcomes the reemergence of the yeast character. The body is moderate and carbonation medium-high. Overall a good looking, good smelling and tasty brew. Definitely worth trying, though some tweaking with hop flavor/bitterness and carbonation would be interesting to see if this beer could be elevated further.

A: Pours lovely hazy orange with a rather large white head that leaves pretty darn nice lacings.

S: Dried hops, just like they do it in Belgium. Yeast and spices. Semi-sour. Citric freshness.

T: Citrus galore, but also an almost hard-candy-like sweetness. Bitter and malty. But in the back the Belgian yeast and spices lingers. Some sourness. Red berries, NICE!

M: Sour and bitter aftertaste, lingers for a longer time than most in this style. Body is smooth and creamy, on the fuller side. Carbonation is surprisingly rich, but still smooth.

O: This one kicks ass. The fellows at Flying Dog sure know what they are doing. I've had so many Belgian IPAs from Belgium - this one is better than most of the ones I've tried.
