3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Spicy Belgian tripel aroma, underlad by a mild, sweetish hop. Flowery perfume.
Appearance is glowing bright orange. Medium slush head. Tons of carbonation. Thick sheet of lace. Very good.
The flavor is fresh harvest hops, sweet pine oil and cat-piss. Pale golden and Belgian malts. Perfume and flower. Complex, halfway between a pale and a Belgian.
Feels thick and milky; bubbly champagne. Almost a fizzy hefeweizen. Overall, a fresh, pungent Belgian with some perfumey, pale hops. Slow sipper, but a nice one; challenging.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep orange colour, thick head & endless lacing. Tropical floral & citrus nose perfectly match grainy caramel malts True to style and a wonderful IPA. Most enjoyable. Ralph Steadman labels are fantastic. Gotta try this.
Bit ouch on the pocket.

Good stuff, strong, but not very bitter. The artwork on the label is, as always with Flying Dog, grotesque and brilliant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Intricate lacing, clear gold color, strange ale to filter, nice belgian yeast nose, flavor is mostly belgian yeast, finish is alcohol and bitters, sort of like a belgian single/triple with extra hops on the bittering end, good stuff but far less hoppy than other belgian IPA’s I’ve had, and what hops are there aren’t outwardly "american", none of the the big citrus bitters (amarillo, centennial, cascade, chinook, columbus, etc.) that alot of the west coasters throw into these Belgian IPAs... Good ale though!

Wonderfully complex while retaining a vicious bite. Fairly long and complex finish.
