4/5 rDev +6.4%
On tap at Busy Bee in Raleigh
A - dark amber with a thin but dense, white head that has good retention
S - floral hops, very faint Belgian yeast
T - fruity, apples, pears, spicy, herbal, floral, caramel
M - medium bodied, smooth, a bit crisp
This is a decent Belgian IPA. It is definitely more hoppy than most beers in this style. The Belgian flavors are there but for the most part are masked by the intense floral hop character. It wasn't bad at all. Probably worth a try.

Semi hazy caramel color with a thin white head. Lots of banana and tropical fruit. Smells like an island buffet.
Big full mouth feel and exceptionally smooth. Well blended flavors, smooth caramel around the edges, lots of banana mango and pineapple. Nice crisp clean finish with a hint of detectable alcohol. Awesome Belgian ipa, right up there with stone cali belgique.

This brew was served from the tap at The Owl House in Rochester, NY. It arrived in a Nugget Nectar pint glass and burned a deep auburn color. It held a one finger creamy tan head, which showed great retention. Thick lacing was left around the glass as it went. Carbonation appeared medium, and no sediment or haze was noted. The nose was lighter, with metallic and earthy hops, with background licks of citrus. Malts were pale adding additional metallic notes. Light peachy sweetness helped to cut some of this bitterness. Finally, Belgian yeast and a cheesy moldiness give the aroma a grit. Our first impression was that this brew is tasty and fruity. As we sipped, the flavoring opened up with bright citric hops, plum and peach sweetness, and a nectary floral sugariness. There was a cutting bitterness of deeper caramel malts and coin. The flavoring was smooth through the middle, with paler, more toasty malts taking the peak. Bitterness from the yeast also worked its way in, taking us to a soft and sweeter finish of clean barley malt, a flash of rye, and evenly continued hops. The aftertaste breathed of those same pale malts from the center of the flavoring, lighter coppers, ripened bananas, and raw piney hop cones. The body was medium, and the carbonation was medium. There was metallic astringency and a light coating, all following a beautiful slurp, smack, and cream to each sip. The beer thinned out with warmth, but this was relatively minor. The abv was appropriate, and the beer drank fantastically.
Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the bright hop flavoring throughout. The drink left a cleanliness to the mouth, but not overwhelmingly like some more lemon, citric brews. The balance of hops with robust, sweeter, coppery malts struck a nice chord. The nose could have been a bit stronger, but this was certainly a great representation of the style.
