12oz bottle poured into a Lost Abbey Patron Sinner tulip.

A - Pours a burnt orange color, flecks of red and brown dance around based on the light. It is fairly clear with a good amount of bubbles actively rising from the bottom. About 2.5-fingers of light khaki head gradually forms, consisting of tiny bubbles surrounding bigger ones. Retention is very good, as well as the lacing.

S - The aroma is clean and full of hops and yeasty phenols. A good amount of pine and citrus, especially grapefruit. Somewhat spicy and malty, and the Belgian yeast adds some cloves, banana, and some bubblegum.

T - The first taste has a lot of caramel malt and yeast and the IPA aspect doesn't kick in until near the end. From the yeast to the fruit, it has a lot of fruit, from the tropical and citrus, to the more earthy qualities from the yeast in the form of banana and grape. It's a bit bitter which is a little off-putting, but the mid-palate has some nice flavor. The pine hops probably contribute the most amount of hop flavor.

M - Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth, if not a bit heavy at times.

D/O - Drinkability is moderate. The flavors are all spot-on, but the most detracting aspect of this beer is the bitterness it brings that seems to overshadow them at times. This is a pretty decent, easily-available Belgian IPA, but I'd probably have to give the edge to Great Divide's Belgica in terms of one I can grab off the shelf.
