COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly "Trebuchet".
Somewhere there is a Belgian Monk who’s head is spinning. A Belgian brewer would never put this much hop into a beer. However, we are not Belgian are we? We can do whatever we want. This is an unconventional beer. Belgian candy sugar, classic Belgian yeast, and a boat load of hops, plus some dry hopping in top of that. A very unique take on a Double IPA that will make it stand out in a crowd.

This iNdia pale ale is not that great. I am only trying this because one of my coworkers was just in love with this beer. I am not a fan of this at all.

Syrupy Nose. Rock candy start with almost rum body. Finish is citrus with booze. Pretty decent. Thick mouth feel.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent lighter golden orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells good too; a nice balance of juicy and piney hops, Belgian yeast, and candied sugar. Tastes like it smells, but with notes of caramel, which detracts from the beer. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and on the stickier side. Still, enjoyable.

Pint can. Poured an amber color with an off white head. Citrus, toasty and some caramel with the alcohol content well hidden.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
Smells beautiful, very sweet, some sour notes and bright tropical fruits in the aroma. Hazy golden, long lasting huge white head. Interesting flavor, candi sugar comes through upfront in the middle and finish the tropical notes come through and finishes with a hint of sourness, belgian spices and a hint of heat. Very unique and interesting belgian strong ale/double IPA. Medium bodied and average carbonation.

tastybeer (1850) - Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Tap and can. Pours amber, off-white head. Good retention/lace. Aroma of caramel, toffee, ester, floral/citrus hop. Taste is bitter, floral, ester, caramel. Palate is dry, average carbonation, slick, bitter finish.

cpetrone84 (1722) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Pour is a bright hazed golden amber with a fair bit of white head and medium bubbles with strong retention. Nose has a fair bit of candied sugar, very stale grain, messy yeast and a touch of lemony esters. Faint grassy hay hops. Taste is similar, sweet candied sugar up front, stale grains with a metallic note, lots if sugar mid to late palate with sweet citrus punch and a grassy bitter hop finish with moderate acidity. Finish is syrupy, a bit fizzy on the throat, coats the mouth.

chucklemation (839) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Pours a hazy brown with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet Belgian. Flavor is a mix of sweet Belgian yeast and tropical fruits, with a tad bit of hops. I guess I can sort of see the IPA connection, as the can calls it, but this is a Belgian ale all the way. Not great, but it’s still decent.

blackflag321 (565) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Poured can to pint. Hazy, brown/orange. Unusual but interestingly good. Not an DIPA, but yeah it is hoppy. Sweet candy balanced by the Belgian yeast.
