Draft at North Wales - Nice golden color with a medium soapy head. Aroma is very sweet with some nice Tripel/candi sugar, Sweeter, sugary breads, yeast and some sweet fruit aroma. Flavor is quite sweet with some nice Belgian candi sugar playing well with the hops - lots of orange, sugar, yeast, and sweeter breads in here. Nice mouthfeel - I like it, but it falls just short of others in this niche style of "hoppy Tripel/IPA" (Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel, Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold, East End Ugly American). Pretty tasty

Cruzan59 (197) - Lititz, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2007
10oz draft at the new Lancaster, PA location...pours a hazy greyish amber color (kind of odd actually) with no head to speak of...aroma was of banana, mild clove and bread...flavor was rather bland in my opinion...some banana and spice with maybe a slight hint of citrus...I guess the name "Belgian IPA" intrigued me...I was hoping for more of an IPA but it was more of a Hefe...glad it only came as a 10oz.

keepersj12 (2758) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2009
On tap at the brew pub. Nice amber with a small head. Aroma of citrus and sweet malt. Flavor starts sweet and malty followed by a hop kick. Very dry and refreshing but beware, This stuff packs a punch.

From Iron HIll Maple Shade, this one has a floral nose, mildly hopped with a nice belgian yeast taste to round it out. 8% ABV.

TomDecapolis (4541) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 30, 2007
On tap at the North Wales location. Pours a milky orange/brown with a smaller bubbly off white lightly lacing head. Not a good looking beer at all. Aroma of Belgian yeast and spice, mixed citrus notes, some floral and lots of Belgian yeast esters. Flavor was more of the Belgian yeast, almost covers up the hops a bit although I was getting some hop flavor. Mixed citrus and medium hop bitterness.

(Draught) Pours a clear golden body with a small off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, toasted malt, banana, citrus, and clove. Flavor of hops (citrus), candi sugar, and Belgian yeast.

The best way to describe this one is full of citrus flavor that compliments the hops in it. Very enjoyable although not quite the same as most IPAs.
