10oz pour from the tap into a Duvel Tulip at the Blue Tusk in Syracuse.

A: Crystal Clear deep copper color with a 2 finger rocky pure white head that disappears slowly. As the glass empties, it is coated with sticky thick lacing.

S: Strong bready malt presence with a lot of interesting hop smells going on as well. Hard to put a finger on just what kind of hops went into this one. Smells way different than Ommegang's BPA from what I recall. The malts are more complex and the hops are more biting.

T: Malts and hops do a flip flop from the smell to the taste with the hops shining through first followed strongly by a nice malt back end. Yeast notes shine through more in the flavor than in the nose and they are a welcome addition to the rest of the flavors in the beer. ABV is non-existent in the flavor.

M: Medium-big body. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with perfect carbonation.

O: A really really good beer. I find myself liking Belgian IPAs more and more lately and this is one of the better of the bunch I've had. At $1 per ounce it's extremely price but is definitely one that I'm glad I was able to try.

ommegang collaboration with the blue tusk pub in syracuse, ny. released december 15th 2011, only 20 logs brewed, about 100 gallons. great introduction party! pours a deep copper brassy color with a red hue, massive ommegang signature head. 10 bucks for a small tulip glass, still deciding if its worth that price. smells fruity and mildly hoppy, billed as a tripel ipa, not sure if it meets that criteria, but definitely a sweeter hop brew, piney in flavor and a killer hop aftertaste. mouthfeel was alive and smooth. yeasty in the finish. i hope this gets some popular support and they keep brewing it because its excellent. head to the tusk to try it before its too late!
