It poured a deep red with a peachy colored head and a fairly good lace...
the smell though was terrible, it smelled like soap...
the taste was about the same some decent hop but mainly just tasted like it had a defect, like there was some soap that got into the batch....
the mouthfeel wasn't bad it was a little bit thin and watery for my liking but whatever...
Over all I did not finnish the pint because it really did taste wrong and off, bad batch? maybe.

A: Pours a hazy darker amber with a finger of tan head.

S: Belgian yeast aroma and nothing else.

T: Light toastiness with mild hop aroma.

M: Light body with average carbonation.

O: Just a tick with this beer. One and done. The other beers at this place are about the same.

A hazy brown brew with slight orange hints, and a tiny head. Nose is sweet hops and a mild hint of malts. Taste is grainy with metallic hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty good, it is well carbonated and slightly sharp. Drinkability is pretty good.

Aroma is nonexistent.
There's a caramel malty taste, almost porter-like in its aspirations. Server described this as the closest they had to an IPA but it’s clearly not. Horrible, horrible beer.
