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...

Honey color with a 3F head in a Mikasa Tulip.
Light earthy fruit aroma.
Cloying smooth MF.
Earthy, fruity taste, finished with a mild bitterness.

Very enjoyable to drink. Mild carbonation and a milder bitterness. I like this.
Also, an emphasis on earthiness and fruit. Worth checking it out.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on December 30, 2017. Look is unfiltered cloudiness. Smell and taste is fruit-forward. Feel is well balanced and refreshing.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 10/2/2017. Pours lightly hazy medium orange/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, apricot, grapefruit, red apple, mango, melon, guava, white grape, peppercorn, light banana/clove, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, apricot, grapefruit, red apple, mango, melon, guava, white grape, peppercorn, light banana/clove, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine/citrus peel/grassy bitterness and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, apricot, grapefruit, red apple, mango, melon, guava, white grape, peppercorn, light banana/clove, honey, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is an excellent Belgian IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with modestly bitter/spicy/drying finish. A bit maltier than expected for the style, but really well balanced between local hops and Belgian yeast; nice malt backbone without being too sweet/heavy feeling for the style. Really great levels of complexity from the yeast and hops; nicely juicy feeling. A very enjoyable offering.

This is isn't my favorite ipa. Has a fruity sort of hop flavor, but not nearly bitter enough. It's not old, so there's no reason for it to be so bland. I'd go with a six pack of two hearted next time. More beer for less money and better flavor. Worth a try if you really want to try something different. It just didn't float my boat. Not to say it it's a bad beer, just not to my taste.
