a: light copper colored ale topped with a thin layer of carbonation that shows nice retention

s: hugely spicy hop nose on a fruity malt body, the grapefruit hop nose blends with Belgian yeasts and spices to create a surprisingly unique aroma, perhaps a bit unrefined but the Amarillo dry-hopping is very distinct and enticing

m: medium-full body, a touch slick, with a lively and moderate level of carbonation

t: monstrous grapefruit hop profile courtesy of the Amarillo dry-hopping rests on a bed of pale and clean caramel malts, fruity yeast with clovey phenols, perhaps a little heavy-handed but a tasty example of the style

d: easy enough, would have another

pint at Galaxy Hut, Arlington

Belgian IPA. I like the idea. Dark fruit and spices. Good yeasts. Belgian all the way. Grapefruit hoppiness. Bitter bite. IPA, you betcha. Mash them together and you have a fizzy, golden, cream laced concoction that is easy to have too many of to quickly.

Loved this beer. Very good mash-up of the two styles. Good maltiness balanced out by the grapefruit of the hops. The belgian spice come through next followed by the yeast(s). The nose is pretty great, too. Again a blend of two styles paired very well.

I had this at Blind Tiger in New York off a pump cask.
A- It's brown with a red hue and very bubbly. It's got a great head and lacing.
S- Some hops and ...grape?
T- Very intense explosion of flavor. Bitter hops. Has an almost Saison after taste, which makes sense because of the Belgian aspect.
