22oz bottle from the fridge.

Pours light gold with a slight haze and an inch-plus head of white. Plenty of ripped sheets of lacing throughout the glass as well as a full coverage skim coat.

Aromatics lead off with pungent, bitter, almost astringent hops. Heavy dosing of grapefruit pith, pine bark, and cedar dew. Light phenolics in the back with juniper in the finish.

Medium bodied with a sticky, chewy mouthfeel. A bit syrupy and slick.

Tropical fruit and conifer resin start the palate. Pink grapefruit pulp, cut grass, spruce needles, and quanine follow through.

Finishes with warming alcohol, a solid bitterness, tropical fruit, wet pine, and a hint of bubblegum.

The Belgian character is subdued by the high hopping rate, and the hops seem to lean in the pelletized direction. A mild wet paper note is found thoughout as well. Probably not the freshest example of this beer.

Sampled in a 4 oz sampling glass

This beer pours an incognito orange brown. With the small glass there was little head. The aroma is very subtle floral and sweet. This IPA starts with a great hop bite. Not ridiculously bitter by any means. It's got a lot of hop flavor. Doesn''t strike me as Cascade. The hop flavor subsides and you're left with a fair malt base which is somewhat sweet, not thick or cloying. Very drinkable.

Reminds me of the Hopmaniac IPA at OnTap in La Jolla. Certainly not as bitter or powerful or in-your-fave as Stone ales. I swear that it was listed as a Double IPA on the board above the bar. It fits the regular IPA category pretty well. Very well done IPA.
