Belgian yeast gives it a lot of spice notes ... so much so that I almost taste pumpkin in it. There's a clove / cinnamon / banana element, spice cake / bread type of thing. Interesting. I'd appreciate it more, perhaps, were it not billed as an IPA of any kind.

Amber reddish cloudy color with a slight white head. Piney resin slight citrus scent. Very slight Belgium with piney hops and very slight citrus, to sweet. Medium body with medium light carbonation. To piney and just not my favorite.

Actually reviewing this now. Poured from bottle into tulip, semi aggressive pour yields light tan creamy head, hangs around for a few minutes and dissipates. Nice lacing. Opaque burnt orange to look at. Smells of belgian fruity esters, some malt and a more piny/dank hop hanging around in there. Taste deliveries a shot of candy sugar, caramel, grapefruit, pine and has a semi sweet/mild bitter finish. There is some alcohol peeking out of this one, but not too much. Mouthfeel is pretty good, nice luscious feel. I actually think the finish on this is what prevents me from giving it a little higher score in the taste area, would have probably liked to have the sweetness on the palate more than the pine/grapefruit bitterness

Poured into a tulip glass. Dark golden color with good carbonation and a two finger head that recedes slowly leaving two inches of lacing. Aroma is belgium yeast, pine hops, and a subtle note of citrus. Taste is a roasted malt and yeast body with a hoppy, slightly bitter pine hop finish. A surprising amount of malt in the body of this beer. Medium body and medium carbonation with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden and doesn't make a cameo in the aftertaste.
One of the better Marshall brews I've had. Does a good job hitting the Belgium ester and yeast notes while providing a strong hop presence. Good taste considering the ABV. It's probably better on tap but still good bottled.

I personally love this beer. Floral belgian notes with a nice hoppy IPA blast. I actually prefer this approach to most "normal" belgian beers I have had. Alcohol content makes this beer little much to session, but nice if you're going to have one beer this day.

The draft version tends to be more floral than the bottles. Pours with a nice head with a cloudy golden color.

On tap at Grandad's OKC. Pours a cloudly dark amber with two fingers of white head that reduces quickly. The nose is mainly Belgian esters and some bready malts. The taste is in line with the aroma: Belgian yeasts, floral notes, malt and just the slightest bittering hops. Medium mouth with a lingering aftertaste. I actually find myself liking this one better than I thought. It's not something I would drink every day, but not bad.
