definitely truth in advertising, in that there is a Belgian candied sugary flavor that is quite prominent. Not reading the label beforehand however, I wasn’t expecting this, even though I’ve had quite a few Belgian IPAs previously. Usually in this style you get Belgian yeast in the malt bill. Therefore, high marks for originality, but at the end this is an interesting experiment that I’m not sure bears repeating.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: Translucent caramel, burnt orange body with a slightly soapy, off-white cap that wastes no time settling down to a modest ring. Aroma starts very grassy & pine-forward but with a little coaxing (& warmth), you get big-time sweetness notes of Candi sugar coated grapefruits, honey covered orange flesh, & dripping wet, sticky sweet citrus notes. Apparent Belgian yeast, moderate estery & earthiness, a hint of gum & coriander. More caramel aromas as time passes. Quite a sweet taste, too. Sweet & fruity. Grapefruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, lemon, citrus, maybe even a little papaya. All very sweet, sugar coated, candied, & layered with light caramel glaze. Belgian yeast adds a modest spice aspect with some undertones of grass, clove, & slightly medicinal esters. Slightly sticky, pretty sweet finish. I do not enjoy this as a DIPA; it is far too sweet. However the heavy Belgian yeast keeps it from being a complete train wreck, & the sweet fruitiness of the brew makes this a decent "Belgian Strong Ale" or whatever. Not bad at all, but not something I’d really ever reach for (especially if I wanted a Double IPA).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can @ Richard’s Tasting. Copper colored pour with a white head. Fruity, sweet aroma of grape, peach, and apple. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Light floral hops and some mild citrus. Very sweet on the palate. Overly so, in fact. Bubblegum, caramel, and brown sugar. Ripe peach and white grape juice. Light hop bitterness along with some flowers and orange peel. Not good as a double IPA, but as a sweet Belgian beer, not bad.

A nice hoppy floral aroma of flowers and mild grapefruit. A very brown sugar flavor followed by a balancing grapefruit bitterness and sweet belgian yeast esters. A nice palate that is fizzy but not syrupy. Overall, a great beer.
