3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great Belgian Double IPA, though not as hop-forward as would be expected by the name. Very well balanced, dry finish, spicy, and all around delicious, but I wouldn’t call it a Double IPA. Only light aroma, and it’s mostly spice and Belgian phenolics. Very little evidence of hops, but again, it’s a perfectly balanced beer.
