Poured from a cold 22 oz. bottle into a lager glass.

Appearance: The body has ample visible carbonation and a light haze. A large, foamy/frothy white head over a light amber body. Retention is very good and lacing is plentiful and sticky.

Aroma: Fruity Belgian yeast, faint bread, and ripe tropical fruit notes. Tame yet complex and faintly earthy.

Flavor: tropical fruit notes from, I think, both the hop blend and the Belgian yeast. Lightly spicy. Mild bitterness builds to moderate in the aftertaste which lingers on as a fine fruity, lightly spicy taste.

Mouthfeel. crisp, medium+ carbonation. Semi-dry finish. Medium body.

Overall: an appealing american-Belgian IPA worth seeking out.

Poured into a small tulip glass hazed sunshine yellow with a nice looking tight bone white head atop.Mainly yeasty spiced phenols in the nose,slightly medicinal and mild citrus hops as well.Again the Belgian yeast is large on the palate wich for me takes away from the citric hops wich should stand out more.For me just to heavy handed in the phenols for me to rate high.

This is a bit of an odd duck with respect to the Belgian style IPA which admittedly isn't one of my favorite styles. There was a minty mouthwash quality on the finish which to be frank I wasn't in love with. Fruity esters from the Belgian yeast didn't present very strongly. This was perfectly drinkable and was a nice change of pace from the traditional IPAs I've been having, but I'm not running out to the store to grab a bomber.

"For our third batch (MP03), Belgian yeast puts a tart, fruity twist on a spicy and citrus-forward IPA, creating a refreshing and deliciously drinkable caramel-hued brew." Brewed in the style of a Belgian IPA, available in 22 oz. bottles and on limited draft. Entry number 3 in the Moving Parts series.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a tulip glass.

(Appearance) Pours a foamy frothed white head over a honey amber body with medium haziness, ample carbonation and thick, pulpy sediment. Retention is very good and lacing is light and spotty. 3.75

(Smell) Intense Belgian yeast notes blend with ripe citrus and tropical fruit hop notes for a very aromatic aroma. Wheat malt, pale biscuit malts, potency is moderate. 4

(Taste) Juicy tropical and fruity hop blend forward smoothly transitions with Belgian yeast profile for an enhanced fruitiness and an elevated peppery spice profile. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, residual, effervescent, moderately dry. Carbonation is medium/high with a moderate frothiness and a fully crisp finish. Alcohol presence is light and there are no off characters to note. 3.75

(Overall) Arguably the most solid release in the series to date. The yeast profile is gentle enough to keep the beer from drying out and developing an overbearing spiced palate, instead enhancing the tropical fruit and citrus flavors of the hop profile for a roundly appealing IPA. 3.75
