At Maple Shade. Hazy orange with lasting thin foamy beige head; aroma is complex array of spice sweet grains and hops; Flava pops with hops but is blended nicely with some sugary sweetness and dry grain; feels medium with nice foamy zing; finishes very bitter with some spicy hop notes

BiddleBrau (962) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On tap at IH Chestnut Hill - Hazy straw colored with dense white head. Big citrus pine nose. Fuller palate. Hops are cloying, malt provides good body, but not too much to diminish hop profile or being too sweet. Decent. Id do this again.

PapaSkeetSkeet (865) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Light amber with thin cream head. Aroma is full of american hops, floral mainly (simcoe??) and only slight clean fruit. Flavor is also dominated by the hops but with a slight touch of banana and berries from the yeast and only minimal phenols and higher alcohols. this is the best Belgian IPA Ive had, it does well by restraining the yeast character enough to let the hops shine.

pilgrimoutlaw (805) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2011
On tap at Earth Bread King of Iron Hill Event. Pours cloudy yellow/orange with white head. Aromas of bread/pine/coriander. Moderately bitter. Starts out well, but the flavors quickly become muted and bland by the time you reach the bottom of the glass.

abcfan (747) - New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2011
Decent brew. Pours amber-orange with a white head, leaves decent lacing behind. Aroma of sweet citrus hops and candi yeast. Easy to drink, smooth spiced finish.

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.

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.
