Growler from Elliott Bay Brewpub. Hazy gold pour with a short white head which leaves minimal lace. This ale is a great balance of the two styles, I believe EB describe it as an IPA made with a Belgian yeast. Nose is slight yeast, hops and alcohol, with a ripe fruit underlay. Bananas and toast mark the lightly sweet and smoky medium body, while grapefruit and pine characterise the hoppy middle and finish. Carbonation is light (growler) in my sample, but probably fizzier from the tap. Sessionable, or at least I hope so as I have a half-gallon growler to finish! A middle-of-the-pack IPA enhanced by a Belgian character.

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft - Belgian fruity yeast, perfume and light lemon. Cloudy yellow gold with a decent white head. Perfume, light Apple and some citrus with a light bitterness.

kathouse (1106) - Nevada, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Medium gold in color. White head emits a heavy spice and herbal character. Body is equally spicy with a strong bitterness. Dry finish.

beastiefan2k (2526) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Sampler, clear pale gold color. Lightly sweet restrained ester with dry biter nonresin hops. Mild mix of fruit happiness. Flavor similar with even more restrained very light esters. Relatively clean finish. Pretty bitter and dry finish. A lighter more dry take on the style than I usually see.

onceblind (4623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear light golden with a nose of spicy earthy hops and pear skin and a slight kiss of jalapeño cheddar. Estery earthy start with a nice peppery tone and some light Belgian fruit esters, semisweet and lightly bitter. Grainy but not bready. Would probably go well with Indian food.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear dark golden color. Nose is very light, with some small yeasty odd elements to it. Taste has some light clove elements to it, and seems very Belgian, and not too much IPA. Meh.

raphael (917) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at the pub. I smell Belgian gas, lemon and caramel.. Flavors of egg yolk, white sugar and lemon. Don’t think enough hops here to qualify as an IPA, more like a Belgian Dubel with some extra hops. Cleanly done and all that, just not among my favorite types.

luttonm (2438) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Draft at Elliot Bay, Lake City. Mild yeast on bright hazy yellow. Smooth Belgian herby hop and yeast. Same odd bittering finish on their other IPAs, I don’t know what their hop bill is but it obviously isn’t my favorite. This is a decent ’Belgian style’ IPA though.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
On nitro cask at Elliott Bay Brewpub, pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Nose is a full-on Belgian hybrid, with Belgian yeast, and a bit of candied sugar mixed with floral hops and doughy malt. Flavour of Belgian yeast, lots of dough, and restrained floral hops – again, certainly tastes like a Belgian hybrid. Nice mouthfeel, no doubt aided by the nitro cask, leaving a lightly bitter and yeasty finish. Very enjoyable.

OldMrCrow (1953) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Tap at the Elliott Bay Lake City

Hazy pour, lovely near-white head. Not the best overhopped Belgian blond I’ve ever had, but extremely drinkable for local and on-tap. This one could easily become a standby at Elliott bay. (Note to self: stomach was off after two glasses -- could this be the reason?)

On draft at the brewery. Burian location. Yellow color witty a light white head. Smooth light hops. Nice Belgian yeast taste.
