Clear light copper, voluminous off-white head, great retention and sticky lace
Smells like plums, pineapple, and grapefruit
Flavor follows aroma, a bit heavier on the plum, plus a hint of caramel.
A bit stickier than I like in an IPA, but not so different from what was standard 15 years ago
Don't really get any sort of Belgian esters or phenols, so not sure how this is a "farmhouse" IPA, but a nice blend of the malt character of old and flavors/aromas of newer hops

Had at HopCat Detroit. It was a good IPA, better than most with Brewery Vivant's nice flavor. I'd probably still prefer one of BV's sour/farmhouse beers but when in the mood for an IPA I'd have this one again.

Review #200

Very interesting combination of hoppy ale goodness and a yeasty Belgian beer. Nice golden color with some fluffy hops and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of fruity and floral hops with a little hint of yeast. Tastes similarly, along with caramel, malt and some bread. Smooth mild mouthfeel and good amount of carbonation. Will keep trying beers from this renowned local brewery.

Poured from can to tulip glass. Copper color with a finger and a half of foam. Nice floral/fruity aromas with a flavor to match. Belgian yeast provides some sweet, mellow flavors to complement the earthy and fruity hops. Not much bitterness here, and no alcohol warming.

Light copper color and nearly clear.

A bit like beef stew to the nose.

There's a sweet taste to start. Good yeast and bitter hop finish. Fuller bodied and well carbonated. Long aftertaste.

This is a nice mellow IPA. Don't let the name fool you. It is not bitter. A lot of nice hop aroma but real smooth. Malt back bone, sweet but not overly so. Nice hop finish. Very drinkable with a 7% kick. I'll have another...
