Pours golden with a big white head. Smells hoppy, spicey, and big belgian yeast. Smooth feel, hops balance well with the belgian yeast. Grassy, smooth, and a good deal of body.

Pours hazy amber, good light tan head. Aroma is malty, with citrus and fruit notes. Very good malt forward IPA taste, with engaging Belgian yeast flavors. Nice beer.

This works for me. Looks like an IPA should - very dark amber with a firm white head and lots of lacing. Media bodied. The crossover comes across in the nose, with banana and bread sitting just behind the citrus. Flavours include boozy orange, grapefruit and marmalade. Long bitter finish. Big, brash, and a bit Belgian.

Bottle. Nose is yeast slight strawberry, banana caramel touch of honey. Taste is banana, malt, sugar, slight booze, resin, slightly sweet finish.
Mouthfeel is good.
This just doesn’t really work for me.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with decent white head. Very pleasant fruity aroma, sweet, and lots of citrusy notes. The taste is somewhat fruity at first, followed by a very decent hoppy bitterness that sticks in the aftertaste for a decent time. Delicious.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste Belgian yeast, citrus, pine. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Bottle. An interesting mix of belgian and US styles - there’s lots of pine and grapefruit arounf but also some funky spice and sour lemon. There is some synergy between the flavours but as a whole it doesn’t really pull together for me.

Un arôme assez fleuri et doux (vraiment surprenant pour une IPA) Elle a une couleur ambrée assez clair . Elle est assez gazeuse étant donné la mousse qui il y a quand on la sere en bouche elle va être assez amère (normal pour uneIPA) on sent un peu les fruits secs le marron la noisette et c'est aussi assez fleurie

Pours clear golden with a mostly fading off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, citrus, some tropic and cat pee. Taste is light sweet and moderate too full bitter, mostly bitter lasting. Body is medium, texture is oily to creamy, carbonation is soft

The name says it all. This beer attacks your taste buds then gives you a hug and a back massage. My first couple of six packs I took it as an experimental gimmick, a blended style with an inflammatory name and graphic, but it grew on me. Normal IPAs no longer do it, I NEED that IPA/belgian spice combo now.
