COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian-inspired IPA is a blend of Old World traditions. Brewed like a Belgian Ale but hopped like an IPA. Pine and citrus notes blend with flavors of apple and pear.

Bottle from Whole Foods Arlington. Pretty clear light amber body with medium head. Nose is hoppy with spicy notes. Taste is also of hops, spices, caramel. With nice floral notes. A bit tart in the creamy finish. Pretty enjoyable and high octane!

Very clean and bright straw gold with two fingers of white head. Nose shows muted hops and esters, some candy and spice in there but not strong. Some floral hops but not much. Nice flavor, spicy phenolics and some sweet bready malt. Not much IPA here and some Belgian. I like it regardless. Medium light bodied. Hard to describe.

Man, I was really hoping for massive sweet, tropical aromas and itís really grassy and thatís about it. Not really much going on. Taste was pretty flat and grassy. No recognizable tastes from the Belgian yeast, or the dry hop. I feel like itís just eight point with some different yeast. I could have gotten a bad bottle maybe.

12 oz. Orange-golden with some soapy spots and a large ring of foam. Nose is citrus zest, toffee, and resiny herb. Tastes of spicy resin, orange, bread, honey. Long finish has a nice mix of resin and spiced pear. Medium body has medium carbonation and a very drinkable balance.

Itís not bad. The sweetness is more than I expected with a nice citrusy punch. Itís also not very aromatic or bitter. I totally get the belgian with an ipa twist...round pegs go into square holes a lot easier than one would think...

Tap. Pale golden with small head. Strange take on the style. Fruity aroma. Low bitterness. Not terribly hoppy.

Aroma grassy, flowery, and stone fruits, almost winey. Light amber clear. Taste is funky and bready -seemed quite different from the aroma.

bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Aroma of malt and hops. Clear bright medium amber color, white head, sheets of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that moves through the swallow with the addition of fizz, and citrus hops. Everything stays along for a long sweet n bitter finish. A solid American Belgian Ale, well-balanced and appealing.
