Had on tap at Moon River, of course.

Pours a simple and generic golden color with moderate lacing.

Smell was not what I expected. Not very indicative of an IPA at all....and because of that, I was no idea what to make of it before even drinking it.

Taste is just plain bad. No semblance of hops at all, a horrific aftertaste. Just. Ugh.

Mouthfeel was forgettable. Moderate carbonation and such.

Drinkability is (not surprisingly) menial. Beer sounded great on paper but was an absolute trainwreck. Not even close to being anything resembling a good IPA, and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

I'm curious about this one as the menu describes it as, "a hybrid of Belgian Pale Ale and an American IPA."

Pours amber and cloudy; leaves great lace.

Flowery hop nose; no "Belgian" yeast aromas

Slight fruity; I detect interesting winter warmer spice flavors (such as coriander, cinnamon and perhaps clove/all spice) although this is not in the description. While very tasty, I don't note any of the typical Belgian flavors--no yeast bite, no sourness, no earthiness. Has a good full body with an appropriate level of carbonation. Round finish with a light hop kick after the swallow.
