3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale buff head. Pomme fruity mainly pear, dominates the aroma but let’s through malty and evergreen hop notes. Hops however, are the strongest note in the palate, and take the stage with pear, Mandarin orange, and malty tones. Strong tingle in the mouthfeel helps you feel it all the way down. A spring beer, but great for summer too.

Bottle. No notes for this drink, but I remember liking the mild hop notes and it was pleasant to drink,

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter because at the time I thought this was a Belgian IPA. I see its an IPA here, so uh... well here goes.
The appearance had a nice hazy golden yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light foamy lacing sticking adequately to the sides of the glass.
The smell had a fairly nice spice to it, at the time, I thought it was a somewhat Belgian spiciness of sorts. Some light piney hops entered in after a bit of warming.
The taste was somewhat bitter and piney with a fairly nice spice added to the flavor.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was slightly harsh but not overly done.
Overall, Belgian IPA or just AIPA, no worries to me, I’d have it again if I could get it again.

Very smooth beer, but not a traditional IPA to speak of. Pour is a cloudy yellow with a nice little white head.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured into frosted pilsner. Golden hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is typical hops but with an undertone of sweetness I can't quite place. Crisp IPA taste but with a bit more bitter finish then I like.

12oz bottle into Le Duvel - nose is citrus and straw with the same bad water smell as the black IPA. Sip adds oranges and lemon peel. Refreshing and easy going. fairly bitter. Interesting.
