[Original rating 2017-06-02] 12 oz. bottle from the brewery store. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is metal, onion, flowers. Taste is bitter, watery with a metallic aftertaste. Not good.

This is a decent beer. A bit confusing as the label says IPA, but online says it is a Belgian IPA. Sweet malt/caramel. Floral hops... some pine. Orange/citrus... not bad.

The look is quite hazy and cloudy - since this is a Belgian-style, I assume it's unfiltered. The look is good, with a decent head and a nice amber color. Unfortunately, on the nose I don't get a lot, and on the taste, I get a lot more malts than hops. I'm not sure if I got an older bottle (there is a number that says 093017 - if that's the date, then it's almost 5 months old), or if the Belgian style makes it this way, but the hops are just not very prominent, and it tastes kind of musty. The mouthfeel is very weird as well. I made it through the bottle, but a bit reluctantly. Sadly, not a fan, though I would be willing to try it fresher, assuming the numbers on the bottle are the date.
