A- Clear and amber. An off white soapy one finger head caps this brew. Minimal active carbonation and mild lacing.

S- Sugary sweet malts, bready yeast. Dank grassy hops as well. A little dirty sweat sock aroma.

T- The sweet malt in the nose is slightly subdued here by an assertive hop presence that has a balancing effect on the flavor. Bitter with a sweet fruit juice blend. Definite notes from the Belgian yeast strain used in this beer come to the forefront in the middle. This one ends sweet n spicy with a modest peppery aftertaste.

M- Medium to medium -heavy. Wet and sticky.

O- Pretty decent Belgian style IPA. For me it's a little sweet. But being a hop head and trying to rate fairly per style I think this brewski is a better than average representation. Not a favorite of mine but will do in a pinch.

Pours a slightly chill hazed golden yellow.

Subtle citrus, biscuits, toffee, and mild spicy Belgian yeast.

Spicy Belgian yeast, citrus, toffee, toasted malts, caramel.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, soft, yeasty.

Overall, a pretty damn solid example of the style.
