the belgian portion of this beer overwhelmed the hoppy half. could have used more hops and malt.

Pours a deep orange, hazy. Nose is floral hops, pineapple and citrus mixed with sweet fruits and malt. Flavor is belgian yeast and citrus hops. Clove, banana, sweet malts. I am not a fan of the Belgian IPA for the most part, but this one was nicely done.

Tan with a firm head. Piquant nose, zesty, lemongrass, mint leaves, with Belgian Summer and Grains of Paradise on the finish. A wonderful, symphonic bouquet. Intense black peppercorn and grains of paradise flavor dominates the monotonic experience. Warming, peppery Grains of Paradise endure on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of clove, banana, and tons of juicy citrus, some perfume as well. Pours a hazy orange with a thin fluffy head. The flavor is mostly banana, clove and spice up front, followed by lime, orange, grapefruit and more sweet banana and clove. A touch metallic at points. THe citrus aspect was interesting, but a tad sweet for my liking.
