On tap at the brewery, served in a tulip.

Hazy orange body with a voluminous white head. Big lace and good retention. Tons of yeast notes on the nose, a bit of spice, hint of ethanol with melons, tropical fruits and citrus. More honeydew melon in terms of flvaour, a little less tropical. Yeast and some Belgian character, a bit of weed flavour too, in the best way. Light herbal bitterness but a substantial malt sweetness as well. Light alcohol, a bit yeasty in the finish. Medium heavy body and a medium carbonation. A really cool and tasty tripel/IPA/Belgian IPA whathaveyou - awesome flavour and body.

On-tap at 3 Floyds. Served in a tulip.

A - A finger-plus of off-white foam settles to a thick cap and glass-coating lace. Hazy golden body.

S - Bit stone fruit malts and spicy Belgian yeast reveal the Tripel element, but these are complimented by aggressive lemon, grapefruit, and herb hop flavors, as well as a touch of cattiness. I'm guessing Amarillo, but who knows?

T - Taste is again a mix of estery Belgian yeast, stone fruit malts, citrus and herbal hop flavors, and moderate bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is very well-hidden - I thought this was closer to 7% while drinking it.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture, and a nice dry finish. No obvious alcohol warmth.

D - Nice enjoyable and easy-to-drink Belgian IPA. Between this, Shark Pants, and Rune Priest I'm really enjoying 3 Floyds' marriage of Belgian yeast and American hops - they legitimately seem to understand how to brew this style of beer.

Served on tap at Bangers and Lace. Appearance is orange and translucent, sticky white head coats the side of the glass and retains nicely. Nose starts with spicy Belgian yeast paired with citrusy tropical hops. Earthy notes come through and add an herbal component. A lot is going on here. Taste starts with sweet malts with notes of caramel. Notes of tangerine and orange come through an are followed up by spice. A bit sweet overall. Mouthfeel is moderate to heavy and carbonation is medium. Overall, this is one of the more enjoyable Belgo IPAs I have tried. Nice American hop profile.
