3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild tart aroma, with a hint of spice. Pours a hazy orangish-amber with a thin white head. Mild citrus notes, a touch of Belgian esters, and minimal hop presence. This comes across almost more of a wheat beer then it does a Belgian IPA. The alcohol is well hidden, but thatís about the best thing going for it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
THOUGHTS: Not so hot. The Belgian side and the IPA half donít seem to mesh all that well. Some of the individual flavors are nice on their own but donít go well together.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a cloudy, medium orange with a small, slightly off-white head that mostly diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma was a bit weak and had light caramel and pale malt; light to moderate apricot hops; light to moderate spicy, Belgian yeast; lighter doughy yeast; light-colored and slightly sour fruit. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and bitter with and average to long duration. There was caramel and pale malts, citrus, pine and earthy hops, spicy Belgian yeast, a little white bread and earthy yeast.
The medium body was dry with fizzy carbonation and a dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy burnt orange with minimal white head. Aroma is grainy, earthy and citrus. Taste is sweet with very minimal bitters, a touch of tartness as well. Medium bodied with a slick texture, alcohol is well hidden. Seemed more like a straight pale ale then a Belgian IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is murky copper with a white head that fades into lacing. The aroma is robust with citrus hops. The taste is that of a mild IPA. I donít really get anything Belgian about this but itís subtle and drinkable. Thatís about the best compliment I can give this beer because itís forgettable.
