Appearance - Pours into my SA Perfect Pint with a clear, amber color. About two fingers of white fluffy head is achieved with a moderate pour, which dissipates rather quickly leaving decent lacing.

Smell - A great aroma of hops, orange (not so much bitter orange peel - sweet orange), slight pine, and spices. A hint of malt and caramel comes through on the back end. Overall, this smells very good.

Taste - An immediate prickle on the tongue from spicy hops and citrus. Not so much orange as there is peach taste prevalent from the initial sip. I also get clove, yeast, and banana. An odd combination/sensation. Each sip yields a different outcome it would seem. The sip finishes with a bready, malty backbone.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, decent carbonation.

Drinkability - One of my first Belgian IPA's and I'd say a good introduction into the style. Easily quaffable for the alcohol content. Has an odd sensation of flavors/taste due to the style, but it is something that sort of grows on you.

Pours a clear peach golden color with a small white head that leaves plenty of lacing.

Smells of fruit and some spice.

Tastes of the fruity notes with some hoppiness to it. Fruit are characterized by mango and pineapple with some pale malt sweetness to them. Hops add a bitterness to it. Plenty of yeast spiciness as well.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Poured from the cask into a tulip glass at Churchkey.

A very soapy and bubbly head white in color, with some surprising staying power for a poured cask ale. Cloudy amber body. Your basic cask ale program presentation, givining to a nice look.

Nose has light Belgian like malts and a sense of sweet sugar cinnamon. Strong but not much else.

Taste is mildly buttery texture from cask ale pour, and an extremely soft bodied malt, and a hint of mild diacetyl. Teasing palate but with a hint of fun.

Overall, on cask pretty straight forward. With a mild body and big chewy malt and hint of hop goodness on the finish to give a sense of ipa fun.
