Tasty. Decent nose. Hoppy, but it's a Belgian so it doesn't finish like a regular IPA. Has a bit of a cask aftertaste.

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and copper orange in color with a half finger, off-white head. Sub-par retention results in a thin, broken layer of suds across the surface. Not much for lacing aside from the odd spot or two.

Smell - Slight citrus and spice with a strong undertone of mango and green banana funk.

Taste - Follows the nose. Spice and green banana with a bit of citrus hoppiness. Light, slightly toasty and caramel malt undertone. Some nuttiness. Yeasty Belgian funk lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a dry, slightly flat finish.

Overall - Decent, but a bit too 'Belgian' heavy for my liking. Not enough assertive hop bite.
