A nice, smooth but uninteresting IPA. Pours a nice bright orange with a white head. Smells of citrus and some floral notes. Taste is nicely balanced and creamy, and not too bitter. Not super complex though. Had on tap at Taps.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rcvd in trade.
The appearance was a hazy orange/brown colored body with a one finger white foamy head that died within a half a minute, light adequate lacing tries to cling but slides for the most part.
The smell had lightly spiced (more or less clove-ish/coriander-ish) that combined nicely with some citrusy hops that brought out some oranges and lemons.
The taste was bitter and sweet at different times, light spices add their flavoring to assist in balancing and lead to a mainly sweet orange aftertaste and a dry finish.
The palate sat about a light to medium on the body, could be slightly construed as sessionable. Carbonation was fairly harsh pounding my mouth and tongue into submission, still good for its style and for me.
Overall, I say this is a good Belgian IPA well worthy of having again, if I ever had it again, I’d definitely like to pair it with some king salmon.
