Nice color. Kinda old smelling for so much hops. Same balance issues. Not great but not bad really.

Again, IPA, some nice floral sweet aroma to it. The taste is pleasant, but a bit to much of a plain bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a finger and a half of coarse off-white head. Good retentions, settles into a rocky cap with some thick lacing. Aroma is hoppy up front, with bread/dough, hay, and floral tones. Flavor is mildly hoppy bitter up front, fading smoothly into citrus and mild, sweet wheat and malt, finish with slight hop/pine bitterness that linger momentarily. Moderate carbonation and medium body, with a crisp texture. A nice beer, definitely showcases IPA and belgian characteristics. This is a tasty, relatively drinkable beer. I definitely enjoyed this one.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nearly clear, light honey, with a good white head.
Tart-yeast aroma , citrus.
Taste is yeasty, funky...a hop bitter...
Decent flavouring, just doesn’t seem to blend very well for me.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pour is a light copper with a nice frothy head. Bready, citrus hop aroma. Flavor is right on with a unique Belgian yeast meeting a hoppy IPA. Nothing too strange going one here... all considering. Would definitly have again!

Belgian aroma with IPA taste. Not bad but not good for someone that’s not an IPA fan.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blonde with a cloudy white head. Yeast, wheat, cloves, lemon zest on the nose. BIG cloves in the flavour, along with more wheat. Nice malt and hop balance, both understated. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. More wit-like banana/clove in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark straw with small near-white head. Head is soon gone but leaves a thin ring on top and plenty of lacing. Has a fine aroma with plenty of hops, plus hints of yeast, malt, banana, and spices. Sounds plenty Belgian in this description but actually much more like an Amer. IPA than expected. Slight downgrade to Overall rating for this departure.
Body is a bit thin and a little crisp. Semi-dry.
O - quite enjoyable, if not the beer I was expecting (which was something more like an Ommegang BIPA). Think of this as a Slightly Belgian IPA.
