This brew was way too sweet for my taste. My favorite brew is a DIPA, so I guess that I am a hop head. I bought a six pack of this beer with the intriguing name and gave away 5 of the bottles. I guess I will never again try a beer that has "Belgian style" on the bottle.

Poured this baby into a goblet and it's looking good. The body has a beautiful neon whiskey hued amber with a fine frosting of dense creamy foam.
The aroma is all Belgian; hard candy, spices, and exotic fruit.
The flavor up front is all sweet malt, and rock candy followed by onslaught of intense hop bitterness. Nice balance we have here.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and the high ABV is completely hidden.
Overall this is a great brew--not for beginners, amateurs, posers, BMC only dullards, toddlers, dabblers, or anybody unaffiliated with serious beer. This would be too good for them.

At first sip, the remnants of the head offer up zesty notes of citrus. Several sips later, it's clear that this beer tends to use it's 10% alcohol content punch-up it's flavor profile instead of letting the ingredient speak for themselves. That's actually not a bad thing, but it does leave something to be desired after the experience is over. I'd revisit this review after a heavier meal prior to consuming another bottle. On its own, it doesn't do much to leave a lasting impression.

not one of the best belgian ipas out there. poured into a chimay chalice (goblet) gave me a finger and a half worth of head that wa a slightly dark orange color. smells like an ipa with a belgian yeast strain, but mostly taste like an ipa. mouthfell is medium. gf's le freak or some of the others are much better examples' but this is not a bad beer

My third review, and as I said in the first two, please bare with me. Out of the bottle and into the glass, this is a pretty beer - a dark, transparent copper. The average pour produced about an inch of light white head, and as I drank the lacing clung to glass the entire way to the initial pour. The smell really made me want to dive right in; sweet biscuit, some banana, a touch of piney hops. The taste closely mimicked the smell, yet only sweeter. That delicious biscuit is up front but the sweetness surges forward. Next, I tasted a rush of banana and some unique candy, which is best described as bubblegum, but is much more indescribably unique. The hops don't appear until after the brew leaves the pallet. With the hoppy aftertaste, I get a nice boozey rush as well. The mouth feel is a bit watery, maybe even oily for the style. Overall, this beer is delicious, but the sweetness deters from the style and may prohibit prolonged drinkability.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle into a goblet
not sure on the date of this one, its at least a couple months old, maybe more. only distinguishing numbers are : 061A13

A: Pours a hazy, apricot orange with less than 1/2 a fingers width of sea foam white colored head. Leaves subtle hints of patchy lacing.

S: Fruity, malty, spicy. Lots of belgian yeast banana, sweet fruits like apricot and mango. Candied sugar, hints of vanilla. Not many hop characters noted, but again I think this one may be a bit old. I like the sweetness though.

T: Duller flavors than the somewhat vibrant nose would suggest. Hops make themselves known as well, with a bitterness on the backend. Some of the sweetness from the nose is present in the taste (apricot, candied sugar), but again its dulled, and somewhat masked by hop bitterness. A touch of alcohol as it warms.

M/D: Medium body, moderately heavy carbonation, decent drinkability, well masked ABV.

O: Real nice aroma, otherwise a relatively average Belgium IPA. Not something Id probably purchase again, but worth a try.

4.04/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a clear dark copper with a frothy half inch cream head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of thin lacing.

Resin, pine, and belgian yeast esters form the initial aroma. Fresh cut grass, pineapple, tangerine, and candi sugar add complexity. One strange combo of yeast esters and hop fruitiness! There's a bit of belgian yeast funkiness present, accompanying floral hop notes at the finish.

Pine, pineapple, tangerine, and mango form the initial flavor, slightly sweet, but becoming bitter at the resiny, dry finish. There's a bit of toasted, bready malt that hits mid palate. It's like fruit cocktail meets resin. Hard to tell which esters are from yeast. Grapefruit and peach emerge late.

Body is moderate, with carbonation a touch high, and significant alcohol warmth. Slight astringency is present.

Interesting brew. I think the recipe must've changed over the years. Don't recall so much tropical fruit character. Bitterness is a bit too much for my palate, but love the flavor overall. I'll tolerate the bitterness for the flavor complexity.

One of my favorite breweries for consistently good suds. 12oz single for $2.25 at The Beer Store in Nashua, NH. Code 151A13 printed on the front label. Served cold in a tulip.

A: A hard pour gives 1/2" of frothy white foam that settles after a minute or so to a stable meniscus and a single clump of large bubbles that clings to the glass. Mostly clear, coppery orange brew.

S: Light crisp candy malty sweetness and a nice mix of soft citrusy and citrus rind hops. Smells just like sour apricots, or the part of a peach right next to the pit. Very nice, salivagenesis ensues.

T: Super pungent bitter hop slams the palate with hardcore bitter apricot stuff, leaving a strong grassy hop aftertaste that lingers for quite a while. Tastebuds are slaughtered with IBUs, I can't believe this is only 60IBU (according to FD's website). The malt body plays a small supporting role, providing just enough body to support the hop, with a little of it lingering in the finish to keep that balanced as well. Also some mango, pineapple, tropical type stuff going on in there, especially when belching. Moderate peppery alcohol heat, but the hop dominates it and keeps it under control, so it's almost a positive.

M: Crisp clean body with just a bit of viscosity. A little EtOH heat present in the finish, but not offensive. Good carbo.

O: Delicious. I REALLY REALLY love the combo of Belgian yeast with citrusy American hops. Phenomenal combo, somewhat similar to what I've done with some of my homebrews (saison yeast, wheat, citrusy US hops).

4.08/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from glass into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a medium amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively fast to leave a good level of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is big of herbal and citrus grapefruit hops. Mixed with these are lighter notes of a bready smell as well as some faint tropical fruit aromas of pineapple and mango as well as some flavors of a bubblegum like smell.

Taste- The taste begins with a bready quite malty flavor. Mixed with these flavors there are some flavors of a mango and tangerine sweetness. There is also a hop flavor of a more herbal nature in the initial tastes that bring a moderate hop flavor to the tongue. As the taste advances the fruit flavors remain relatively constant while the hop flavor grow more intense with a grapefruit flavor soon overwhelming the herbal and becoming the dominant hop flavor. At around this time a light yeasty flavor also comes to the tongue In the end this grapefruit hop is rather potent, but in many ways fits the tropical fruit flavors rather well to leave a nice bitter and fruity flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the creamier and thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. Both are very nice for the style and match the hop and fruit/malt profile nicely.

Overall – This is a fairly nice yet easily drinkable imperial IPA with a good blend of hop and fruit flavors.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance: This beer poured a huge head that reduced a little, but for the most part is still there. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Crazy lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: pineapples, mangos, spicy yeast, bready and caramel notes, and some citrus.

Taste: Same as above, some lingering bitterness from all the citrus hops too. Very tasty BIPA.

Mouthfeel: Super smooth, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and very drinkable.

Overall: I love this beer. Pretty good and I am very happy with it. Looking for more in the future.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

From the 12. fl. oz. bottle no.151A138. Sampled on February 25, 2013.

It is an attractive looking beer with a medium amber tone, copper, like a brand new penny, busy carbonation and a lingering off-white head. That gets a high mark.

The aroma has as touch of Belgian sugars and yeast, banana, and bubblegum.

The body is medium but there is a considerable acidity going on which makes it a little sharper on the palate.

The taste drops hints that it is a Belgian style IPA with the pale malts, banana, and bubblegum (like the aroma) and moderate hop bitterness lingering on at the finish. But there is something rather off about it. It has this graininess or something I cannot quite define. It looked and smelled good but it slipped on the taste.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Took one look at this beer and as soon as i read that it was a Belgian style i was sold, let alone that it was an IPA, fuck ya!!

A: Very heavy amber color to it, looks like there is not much carbonation or life inside, yet unable to see through the glass so there must be allot of malty ingredients added to the batch.

S: Smell is slightly intense, heavy in the pine smell, can totally tell that is in IPA just based off the smell.

T: smooth, sweet and so easy to drink. Has a sharp entrance at first, but after goes down the throat all it leaves you with is such and IPA bitter flavor it will keep you begging for more.

M: After just taking sips of the beer tho, it kinda shows you the complete opposite of its taste. Allowing you to leave it in your mouth so smooth and subtle, until your ready to swallow it whole in which you encounter its full wrath and flavor.

3.55/5  rDev -9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

355ml bottle from Vino Wines, Edinburgh:
Orange amber colour with a thumb sized, foamy looking head that is white in colour and has excellent retention. The head holds for well over five minutes without reducing any.

A strong hop filled aroma, mainly a floral one along with some yeast and a fruity aroma. There is some mango, a little citrus and grapefruit as well as some hints of orange giving it quite a fruity.

Hop filled with some grapefruit and floral flavours. There is a strong alcohol taste around the middle with some sugar, citrus and a few tropical fruit flavours. It is very Belgian like again and there is some apricot in there somewhere as well along with the hop bitterness and some spice throughout.

Medium with strong carbonation and a dry feel to the beer but a smooth one as well. There is some grain and a lot of bitterness at the end with some alcohol at the end.

A strong beer with the high alcohol content not particularly well hidden but the beer is definitely Belgian in style and taste, it certainly reminded me of Duvel a lot but it wasn't quite in the same league as it.

A solid finger of head on a cloudy, dark amber colored body.
The aroma is faintly fruity: orange and lemon. A little caramel too.
The taste is quite fruity at first: orange, apricot and lemon; followed by a candied sweetness. Great combination. It finishes with a puckering bitterness, which is a bit out of place.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Pretty tasty.

2.53/5  rDev -35.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from bottle to a tulip glass

Color is dark orange to a golden brown with an off white 2" head.

Smell is full of hops and yeast with an almost sour hint to it.

Taste is overwhelmingly complex with a powerful hint of hops followed by sour hint and following up with the after taste of dry bitterness left in your mouth.

The mouth feeling is very poppy not so much the carbonation as it being burst of favors that you get after the first sip.

Overall this beer is a great taste testing beer other then that I couldn't see myself drinking 2 or 3 bottles before my taste buds are shoot from complexity and the bitter after taste

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a light copper color that is semi-transparent and a little cloudy. Had a small, white head.

Smell: Strong hop aroma, but made to seem a little subtle from the Belgian-yeasty smell. Very different.

Taste: Like the scent, there is a strong hop presence. It doesn't have the big bitter kick other IPAs do. I think this is because of the citrus and yeasty flavors. It made me think of an IPA and a Tripel combined. Very interesting and good.

Mouthfeel: Nice body with a little bit of a "slick" feel. Didn't notice the carbonation too much.

Overall: The flavor of this beer is great and I would like to have it often. However, with an ABV of over 8%, I would need to keep an eye on my consumption, which brings this rating down slightly.

Purchased from Beers of Europe in Kingslynn, England. Poured into my new Nogne beer goblet, also from B of E.
A-Poured very nice amber, burnt orange, with nice white, one finger head. Light carbonation with minimal lacing.
S-Big Belgian aromas, light citrus, but short on hops.
T-Again, big Belgian flavor but very little hops, light citrus and a little bitterness on the backside.
M-A little oily, thin, carbonation is decent.
O-A bit disappointing! Less of an IPA and more like a Belgian Ale IMO, and not a very good one.
*I have to add, I wonder afterwards if this beer is bad? I just opened a Smuttynose IPA, which I've had before, purchased at the same time/place-today, and it is obviously bad, not the great IPA I remember, at all!

S - 12 oz brownie with awesome artwork. Poured into Maudite tulip glass

A - copper colored with a slight haze and a dense off white head that faded to a ring around the perimeter of the glass. Minimal lacing.

S - very hop heavy. Piney and fruity at the same time. I pick up the subtle scent of clementines and grapefruit with just a tad bit of skunk. All in all....This beer smells very good!

T - has that "back of the mouth" hop presence you would expect. Very "piney". Complex flavors mask the ABV completely. No warming found here.

M - slick, almost oily. Minimal carbonation.

O - I was unsure about this brew at first. I drank one and decided I would write the review a couple days later after I had the chance to drink a few more of these. I've just about polished off the 6'er and I have to say that I will miss this when it's gone. I don't pick up much if any of the Belgian character I was expecting...seems like a pretty straight forward IPA. Very hoppy / piney. Not my favorite style (I'm a porter / stout guy) but I enjoyed the change up from the routine. I also had fun explaining to my 7 year old why daddy's beer had a "bad word" on the bottle! LOL!

Pours a nice clear amber with a half finger of off white head trade fades. Smell is full of hops and a bit fruity. More hops in the taste, has an east coast like hop bitterness. There is also a nice fruity note. Good amount of sweetness to balance the hops. There is also some Belgian spice hanging around, but you have to pay attention to not miss it.

Pours a clear amber color with bubbles racing up the middle to a massive 2-3 finger foamy white head that had tons of bubbles in it and faded extremely slowly, leaving decent spotty lacing. The head barely budged for a minute and dissipated quite gradually.

Smells of sweet fruit like pear, apple and banana, followed by funky yeast, rusted metal, cardboard, biscuit, herbs, tea leaf, spices like coriander, pepper and light allspice, wet leaves, flowers and light alcohol. The weird metallic odor almost ruined it for me, but the yeast and spices fought back to save the day. The hops were covered up leaving the “IPA” part a non-factor.

Tastes of sweet fruit like pear, apple and banana, some clove, funky yeast, rusted metal, cardboard, biscuit, roasted grains, herbs, tea leaf, spices like coriander, pepper, allspice and maybe some cinnamon, flowers/floral hops and light alcohol. The initial fruit flavors give way to the metal and yeast and it almost tastes skunky and not like a Belgian or BIPA. The hops were very weak and while there is some bitterness, it can’t make up for the tart metallic taste that does not add anything positive to my enjoyment of this brew. The ABV is hidden quite well, but it doesn’t matter because the flavor is not that good.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with very light carbonation, a medium body and a funky metallic aftertaste that is on the dry side. I hope this was just a bad beer, as I don’t think this was meant to be as bad as this brew was tonight. I’ll have to try another one since I like Flying Dog overall.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly hazy copper with a 1 finger white head that slowly dissipates into a nice even layer of foam across the top; a moderate amount of lacing throughout the session. The aroma for me is the most enjoyable part of this beer...huge amounts of fruit - banana and warm pear with winter spices; a hint of licorice; sourness from the Belgian Yeast is rounded out by the generous backbone of malted barley; mostly sweet but you can really tell there is a generous amount of hops from the first whiff. Taste is enjoyable - fruity, but I also got a lot of rich flavors out of it, too...cocoa, spice, and earthy hop flavors; leaves behind a mostly sweet, slightly bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel was a little sharp in my opinion; as a hybrid between two very different styles, I'd like the feel to be a bit smoother rather than have a bite like an IPA/DIPA - personal preference, though.

Overall, an enjoyable, complex brew. With a variety of different elements - sweet, sour, bitter, and rich - it's hard to put a label on it. I've been drinking this for a few years, and have never thought about it as hard as I did tonight. Would definitely recommend, and I'm curious to see where this style goes in the future. Cheers!

12 oz bottle into tulip. code on bottle states "106B13".

A: very clear, very bright copper color. slightly off-white head is frothy. retention is good and also plenty of foam left behind.

S: apples and bananas. plenty of esters. a floral hoppiness as well. a little bit of cereal. the esters and fruit dominate the nose for the most part. aroma is more like a Belgian tripel, however the touch of hops is appreciated and necessary.

T: plenty of fruitiness starts things off. pears and kiwi. a chalky bitterness throughout. glad that back bone is there to balance the sweet fruit and also remind the drinker this is a BIPA. finish has both bitterness and fruit. finishes with a pear flavor.

M: moderate amount of carb, medium/full body.

D: a style that is a bit tough to hit, at least in my opinion, flying dog does a pretty good job here. I gotta say this is definitely one of their more enjoyable brews and worth picking up.

3.85/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a snifter glass, colour is a bright, slightly amber, gold, produced a slight creamy white head. Good retention and really nice lacing, nice carbonation.

Smell has strong hop notes upfront, plenty of green, somewhat herbally, nutty notes. Bready malt underpins this. Some fresh and fruity yeast notes also. Quite light and lively.

Taste has a heavy malty feel with a strong herbal hoppiness. Some yeast (green apples) but more on the hopped side, a ton of bitterness. A bit of a smoky oiliness, maybe a bit salty. Aftertaste is really dry, and quite bitter.

Mouthfeel has a rolling soft carbonation, pretty big, oily, bitter body. It leaves a coating as it goes down, on the brash side for sure a lot of sharpness, but pleasing, a bit heady with the alcohol but neatly disguised by the hops.

Certainly quite interesting, but it seemed to have a couple loose ends, some of the belgian style eventually shines through behind the strong hop character. Interesting take, but I think some of the other examples of this style are more balanced and more interesting. Definitely pleasant to drink though.

Poured bottle bought at the brewery into a FD tulip. Orange/amber color with some haze. Nice off white head dissolves to a thin film with some clumps of foam floating on surface. Nice lacing and legs, with the high abv.
Smell was a funky- barnyard thing , I guess from the belgian style (?) with some citrus hops in the background.
Taste - impressive with sweet biscuity malt quickly followed by more powerful hops bite and a lingering bitterness I favor in IPAs. As it warms there's definitely booze along with complexity here .
Feel- good medium /full body that coated the tongue. Carbonation is also there which made for a nice balance
Overall- very nice IPA which I will definitely look for again . Price is good at $10 a sixer

Aroma was pretty good but I could smell a lot of alcohol along with pale malts yeast and spices. No hops.
Taste is dry sweet malts, sharp some hops but not much and yeast and booze.
Drinks thin and sharp and pretty bitter in the aftertaste.
A potent brew with a high ABV, has decent flavor and aroma.
