Can. Clear amber, thin head. Strong hop aroma like a traditional IPA but with more sweetness from the yeast. I enjoyed this and would definitely have again.

Rich amber color and solid body. Hops in aroma and taste, off set by some Belgian yeast spice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out of a 16 oz can into a Belgian snifter.
A - Pours with a hazy amber body topped by a well-propotioned and durable off-white head. Excellent lacing.
Aroma: Nutty yeast aromas mix with hops, some bready malts and faint fruits. Excellent balance.
T: Nutty, yeasty, lightly funky, moderately hoppy, slightly fruity and floral. Nice complexity and good balance. The lingering, mildly bitter aftertaste is especially pleasant for this style.
M - Medium-bodied with crisp, medium+ carbonation.
Overall: a well crafted Belgian IPA worth seeking out.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Bottles & Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after work, hopefully on one of the last sub-zero days of this winter. Appearance is a lightly cloudy amber gold with a moderate white head that lightly laces to the glass. Aroma of peppermint, light citrus and light tart and clove. Taste finishes with a nice dry bitterness, light tart, light piney hops, nicely done. Thereís nothing outstanding about this brew, but itís really good, solid, and exceptional. Probably the best "session" Belgo-IPA Iíve had yet.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus hop aroma, pours a slightly hazy amber with a full white head. The Belgian yeast esters are the predominant flavor, with some grassy hop notes coming forward in the finish. Lingering fruity notes, not a bad beer but I donít think I would class it as an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice dark cooper colored orange with a nice head. Nose is citrus with a predominance of freshly squeezed orange. Taste is fruity with some yeasty notes. Finish is semi dry, clean and ends on the same fruity notes. Not a Belgian fan, but this was a single game changer. Quaff Score 8 / 10

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vivant Flight draught. 28viii13. Potable yet underprofiled herbal IPA with some tentative Belgian yeast characteristics, but none of its complexity. Saved by traditional US hop aromas. Might benefit from more fermenting time in the tubes.
