UPDATED: NOV 23, 2013 Spicy, almost funky. The hops dont dominate it. HAd it on tap and thought it was a good funky belgian but not quite ipa territory. Can. More metallic and vegetal but a very topical aroma and pleasant bitterness. upped from 3.1.

Pint-size can. Poured fiery medium-orange with a tall, sticky white head. The aroma picked up orange rind and fruity yeast, joined by white pepper and cloves.. sweeter, honeyed undertones.. sweet overall, and fairly enjoyable. The flavor found sweet caramel, crusty bread, and honey at the core, with spiced-up darker fruity yeast laced throughout.. the yeast worked a little too hard in here, but it was still alright.. dry, spicy finish. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. again the yeast presence was a little strong.. decent brew.

16oz can, shared by ryan: Pours a clear pale bronze with a spotty-lacing ring of white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some mild grassy and citrusy hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and light effervescence with some pale malty sweetness and a touch of clove spice before a drier earthy bitter finish.

16 oz can. (Siciliano’s) Grand Rapids, MI.
Tea-like bitterness, mild tart fruitiness and mild bitterness in the aroma.
Mild bitterness, mild yeast and some malt in the flavour. What Belgian IPA? Yeast IPA... that’s what it is. But not bad.
