Pours an ugly murky brown with barley any lacing. Fruity esters, alcohol, and caramel. Not the bitterness is subdued by an alcohol burn. A little messy and all over te place.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark amber color with lots of head that lingers. Aroma is all Belgian, banana, clove, and bubblegum. Taste is the same. Too much Belgian character to this for me to taste any of the malt or hops. Finish is smooth and a little spicy, must be from the rye malt. Alcohol is well hidden. It’s not a bad beer really it’s just not my thing. If you like Belgian IPA’s you’ll probably love this one.

I love dripa but ill take this over a dripa any day. The high hop flavor along with the malt and belgian style yeast make this a beer you can't get from just anywhere.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my coworkers brought this back from his weekend trip up to Michigan. Wowzers!
This beer pours a light bodied and very clear dingy copper in color with a soapy one finger head. The nose is incredibly fresh and has a really nice floral hoppiness to pair with a touch of yeast near the end. The nose is really nice and pungent. The flavors are nice and yeasty with slight caramel malt and almost a slight candied malt aspect before finishing moderately dry with a nice hop bitterness. It drinks light in body with a nice flash of flavor before going on the hoppy side. It doesn’t drink like an imperial Belgo either. The alcohol is well masked. Overall this is a really interesting beer. I’ve never really seen a 10%+ Belgo before and this is done nicely.
