Bottle from Mariís Pours clear copper with a small white head and tons of carbonation. The aroma is dominated by candied sugar and Belgian yeast.. not much of a hop aroma at all. The taste has a little hop bite but is not overly bitter. There is a sweetness, slight spice, light citrus.

12oz. Bottle. Belgian IPA? Did they make that up? Certainly smells distinctly like Belgian ale and pours similarly - orange gold (Lovibond 15) colour with small head. Fizz lacing. Taste is also Belgian. Not sure where the IPA comes in, as I'm not really appreciating the piney, bitter taste associated with American IPAs. This is Belgian earthy, malty alcoholic tasting with subtle hops to balance it all. Very good beer though!

Daft at restaurant. Nice white head, with sticky lacing. Aroma of clove and coriander. Not nearly enough hop presence for an IPA, even a Belgian style IPA. Drinkable however

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark gold, with a medium white head. Aroma is all Belgian yeast, and maybe a hint of hops underneath. Flavor is sweet malt and citrus hops, withalong sweet/bitter finish. Palate is ok, fine carbonation but a bit too much. Decent, but not all that special.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the tap a lovely clear amber with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled pale wheat head. Aroma is more fruity than hoppy, and does have hints of malt and cloves. Flavor, however, is decidedly hoppy and resiny, with woody, fruity and malty notes and hints of pine and clove. Full, robust texture has plenty of fizz and sass. How could anybody be grumpy after one of these?
