Not sure why no other reviews are mentioning that this tastes nothing at all like an IPA. Sour taste, not bitter or hoppy. Is that what Belgian style means? Okay, I guess if you like that sort of thing. Blah.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color with a medium white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin and spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, Belgian yeast, citrus and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and some citrus. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is mild for the style but brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, not the best representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are a lot of other beers in the style that I would choose first.

Slight hint of Belgian yeast in the back, coupled with potent and astringent front that traps me in the middle. Not a fan
