This is one of my favorite beers. It is hoppy and bitter and the belgian yeast adds an incredible tang that converts the bitterness to a mild sweetness.

The color is a light burgundy, 70% opaque with half an inch creamy head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing.

Smells like hops and caramel and spices. A bit of malt and some fruity notes--apples and a hint of blackberry maybe.

Tastes like dream. Tangy and peppery and hoppy. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is good....it's amazingly smooth given all the flavor and bitterness and alcohol.

Overall, a wonderfulIPA with belgian yeast.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a pint glass.

A – Clear light amber with some red. Thin head but a very inviting caramel color

S – Strong Fruity, ester smell. Mostly banana, and some citrus with an overall sweetness

T – Tastes very similar to the way it smells. Strong fruit flavors up front accompanied by citrus. A sweet caramel, somewhat biscuit after taste. Strong bitter notes, clean finish. The balance between fruits and citrus is off. Heavy on the fruit.

M – Heavy body with light carbonation. Feels typical for an IPA

O – Overall a very nice Belgian style IPA. A little heavy on the fruit flavors and lacking on hops for my taste. Recommended more for the Belgian Ale drinker than IPA

A- Deep amber body with a bone white head. Good transparency and carbonation bubbles coming up from the bottom.

S- Very strong hop aroma with Belgian spices coming through.

T- Very similar to the aroma; spices compliment the hoppy body very nicely.

M- Somewhat of a bite on the tongue, with medium-high carbonation.

O- Very nice Belgian IPA. ABV is hidden well.
