Took one look at this beer and as soon as i read that it was a Belgian style i was sold, let alone that it was an IPA, fuck ya!!

A: Very heavy amber color to it, looks like there is not much carbonation or life inside, yet unable to see through the glass so there must be allot of malty ingredients added to the batch.

S: Smell is slightly intense, heavy in the pine smell, can totally tell that is in IPA just based off the smell.

T: smooth, sweet and so easy to drink. Has a sharp entrance at first, but after goes down the throat all it leaves you with is such and IPA bitter flavor it will keep you begging for more.

M: After just taking sips of the beer tho, it kinda shows you the complete opposite of its taste. Allowing you to leave it in your mouth so smooth and subtle, until your ready to swallow it whole in which you encounter its full wrath and flavor.

355ml bottle from Vino Wines, Edinburgh:
Orange amber colour with a thumb sized, foamy looking head that is white in colour and has excellent retention. The head holds for well over five minutes without reducing any.

A strong hop filled aroma, mainly a floral one along with some yeast and a fruity aroma. There is some mango, a little citrus and grapefruit as well as some hints of orange giving it quite a fruity.

Hop filled with some grapefruit and floral flavours. There is a strong alcohol taste around the middle with some sugar, citrus and a few tropical fruit flavours. It is very Belgian like again and there is some apricot in there somewhere as well along with the hop bitterness and some spice throughout.

Medium with strong carbonation and a dry feel to the beer but a smooth one as well. There is some grain and a lot of bitterness at the end with some alcohol at the end.

A strong beer with the high alcohol content not particularly well hidden but the beer is definitely Belgian in style and taste, it certainly reminded me of Duvel a lot but it wasn't quite in the same league as it.
