12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present, just a code printed on the label 277A13. It's been a long time coming since I've last drank this beer, so I figured it was about time I had it again. Awesome Steadman bottle art, as always. Expectations are decently high.

Poured into an over-sized wine glass.

A - Pours a nice bright, slightly cloudy lemon-orange colored body with two fingers of fluffy off-white head. Head has some nice staying power for a 7.50% abv beer.

S - Smell is light and fairly subdued. Mild earthy hops, lemongrass, wheat, overripe green apples, some must, & some indistinct tropical fruit.

T - Taste follows the nose with the addition of some spicy clove and bubblegum. Earthy grains, wheat, green apples, pineapple, dry herbal hop bitterness, and just a touch of yeast funk.

M - Feel ends dry and grainy, with some herbal hop bitterness and green apple lingering. Medium bodied with good, if somewhat high carbonation.

Overall, an okay outing from Flying Dog. Clearly this isn't their finest hour, but it is nice for what it is. Maybe not as much "farmhouse", but subtly complex, yet still approachable. An easy drinker; well worth a try at least once.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

Best before 24.05.2014 stamped in the label.

A: First of all, the usual Flying Dog beautiful bottle art. Magnificent! Pours a dark yellow to orange color. Slightly cloudy reminds honey. Forms abig bubbled aired white head when poured. Medium retention and lots of lingering lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Great in the nose. An authentic sweet grains IPA with hints of spices. Strong notes of sweet pale grains, light caramel malts, crystal malts. Great piny and bit citrus hops profile. A bit fruity with notes of citrus fruits. Bready belgian style yeasts in the very end

T: Great taste. Slightly sweet upfront. Intense hops. Great spiciness. Notes of pine, sweet grains, orange peel, pineapple, pepper, caramel malts, crystal malts, brown sugar. Nice hoppy bitter sting. Great balance

M: Medium body. Bit molasses. Good carbonation. Sweet grains and quite piny aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Great combination of farmhouse & IPA. A winner

A - Slightly cloudy, clover honey color. Nice white head with decent to good retention. good lacing.

S - Smells great but hard to describe. A diverse mix of smells. Some pine and citrus hops. A slightly lemon smell. A mix of spices that I'm not sure what they are, but remind me a little of a wheat beer, actually reminds me a little of the smell of allagash white.

T - The start is like like an APA, middle a little more hoppy, and finishes smooth like a witbier. Honestly to me taste like a decent apa, with a taste of allagash white, something about the flavor and smell just really reminds me of that beer.

M - Excellent, perfect carbonation levels

O - An interesting but good beer. Well balanced and different from the norms. I can't remember ever trying a Belgian IPA before, but I can say that this beer doesn't fit any other category I have tried.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Cloudy hazy dark gold, heavy bubbles on the body. Head is thick, with a hard pour was over two finger's length coming slightly off white. Honestly looks real nice.

Smell: Light yeast and hop with a lighter lemon skin that hits you in the end.

Taste: Heavy citrus, grapefruit and lemon combined alike. Bitter to most but very easy to adapt with light nutmeg notes.

Mouth: Heavy carbonation, sticky but a little dry. Not exactly smooth but very do-able.

Overall: Very good beer that I would definitely buy again. It's a borderline DIPA depending on your palates. Might have to grab more for some Sunday football. Grab a glass and hope you all enjoy. Salud!
