COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian IPA: Itís not for the masses, itís for you. Rejecting traditional brewing dogma, the Infidel challenges the notion of beers fitting neatly into established style guidelines. The assertive, citrus hoppiness of an American IPA unites with the traditional spicy notes of a Belgian Pale Ale to create a bold, beautiful, palate-pleasing brew.

Crushing this during prvd canada/Czech junior game and a bout of pure distain for any product from china. Seems murky when put up against frosted Xmas lights. Wonderfully enjoyable aroma. Sweet citrus, sweet orange, mango, lime rind, lychee, weak caramel holds it all together. Very good flavor that makes this incredibly drinkable. No in your face qualities to distract from this very well crafted beer. Weak pepper, zip, mellow bitterness which gets more serious when doing a vacuum clean around the teeth, lime, crazy tangy shit, grapefruit, dryness here and there, last sip says that I absolutely have to get more. WTF is up with Idaho? laughing dog and Selkirk earn your god damn respect period.

I really like this, it's a very well balanced Belgian IPA. A fresh burst of hops with a complex finish thanks to the Belgian yeast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle. Hazy light orange. Big fruity nose, mango, peach, citrus. Fresh citrus hop character, very right and drinkable for a DIPA. Not finding anything especially "Belgian" in this, but I donít care-- itís a great brew!

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is a little yeasty and has some floral aromas to it. Taste is definitely a little bitter, but with a little residual Belgian sweetness. Interesting drink, and something Iíd happily drink again.

Not a bad Belgian IPA. The belgian-ness I assume comes from the very Belgian spice, pepper and clove, but there is plenty of piney hop character as well.

Iphonephan (3018) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 1, 2013
On draft at Magnolias in Purcellville VA. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of lemon and white pepper. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and a slightly tart bitter finish.

Elwood (3022) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Serving: Draft at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. It pours a hazy, light copper color with a very large off white head. The nose is heavy with the yeast and cloves. Flavor wise Iím missing most of the hops. I am getting plenty of Belgian yeast esters though. Drinks more like a Belgian strong than a IIPA. Still pretty decent.

brenn79 (1468) - Idaho, USA - NOV 9, 2013
22 oz bottle- Pours slightly hazy orange with a one finger head that reduces. The aroma is pungent hops, grapefruity citrusy hops, sweet light malt. The taste is all grapefruit, tropical citrusy, not much bitterness, basic light malt. This beer is very drinkable, not getting much of a Belgian character, or really a PNW IPA, but the hops they used are delicious, enjoyable IPA for the drinkers that say that they donít like IPAís!

650ml brown bottle. Orange pour with lots of haze. Creamy white cap. Nose has orange, pineapple, grapefruit and pine/resin hops, some sweetness. Taste has some yeast, orange fruitiness, grapefruit, biscuity and bready malt. Yeasty finish with some lingering citrus with a mellow bitterness. Smooth and light mouthfeel for a beer of 8%+. Nice brew.
