3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I had this on tap at the brewpub. It was a pleasant enough drink, although perhaps not bitter enough to have "IPA" in its name. It was golden bodied with an off-white head. It was quite fruity in both nose and flavor, as advertized, primarily with citrus fruit and banana, also as advertized. The finish was dry and had a mild citrusy bitterness. Not a bad drink at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Very ripe looking cloudy gold pour, heavily sedimental but well carbonated to the point that there was no fear of murk. Dry grassy hops in the nose, along with esters and mild fruit. Body was medium, lightly spicy palate. The flavors weren’t as hop-forward as I’d hoped for, but it was a passable Belgian IPA.

This has the sweet undertones you expect from a Belgian and the bitterness you expect from and IPA blending into an easy to drink ale.
