Purchased a 6pk at Wegmans in Warrington, PA
Poured and enjoyed in a DFH Pint Glass
A - Beer pours a hazy, straw/light honey color. A massive and very fluffy, white three finger head on the initial pour that I needed to have settle a bit before finishing the pour. Good amount of aggressive bubbles rising up from the bottom. Leaves quite a bit of sticky lacing. As always the artwork on the bottles is very eye-catching.
S - A rather hoppy standard IPA aromal with hints of spice.
T - A tasty twist on the standard IPA. You get the nice bitterness and citrus notes that you normally get in an IPA but mixed with the spiciness and yeasty banana flavor of a Belgian-style beer. Very drinkable. The alcohol does peak through the longer the beer sits and warms up.
M - Medium carbonation. A slightly dry bitterness lingers after drinking.
O - Overall, I enjoyed this beer. For those familiar with Flying Dog's Raging Bitch, I'd say this beer is it's "little brother". A nice, easy drinking beer from Flying Dog.

Pours a hazy pale orange with a one finger white head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma has pears, Belgian yeast, citrus, cloves, and pale malts.
The taste is more bitter than I would have expected and has citrus, citrus zest, pepper, phenols, Belgian yeast, pale malts, and cloves. The proportions of the ingredients do not seem to be ideal, and this beer kind of seems like it was just thrown together, without much thought be given as to how it would turn out. Each sip seems to start sweet, and finishes overly bitter, with a good deal of citrus zest.
Medium bodied with above average carbonation, and an overly bitter finish. A decent beer, but if falls short of the best Belgian IPAs.
