The IIPA is much more prominent than the "Belgian" part. Aroma isnít strong, but has a nice smooth citrus hop character. Incredibly well balanced beer, with citrus hops and a bit of syrupy sweetness. None of the flavors are as intense as in many other IIPAs, but they are very pleasant. Very easy to drink.

c/o NeoHippie! Thanks again my friend
Aroma - hops are oily and bulked out! West Coast is well represented from Chinook, Tomahawk, and Centennial hops.
Appearance - amber body color; clean and clear liquid; 2" beige-yellowish rocky head; lovely lace
Taste - oily West Coast hops with some caramel malts
Palate - body is medium; texture is thick, slick, and oily; carbonation is lively; finish is cloying and bitter, nearly astringent

Another fine offering. Good and hoppy and smooth. A little lacking in aroma but really solid.

From a trade. Deep orange. Nose of light grapefruit. Fairly malty, balanced, nice citrus and some pine. Solid, but not their best stuff. Not much belgian anything here, nor imperial IPA-ness even.

bottle shared with EricTeusink. Great label. Pours darker clear orange with ample off white head. Taste was heavily bitter, orange, other citrus, some fruitiness, a bit of spiciness. The Belgian aspect was not over the top, which for the most part is a good thing for me. Good beer.

Live a Rich Life, have been saving this since it was first released. Wow, aroma is hops forward, spice, grapefruit and citrus, taste is citrus, grapefruit, bittersweet, Belgian yeast, wow! short to medium aftertaste, alcohol is somewhat present but pleasing. Good beer! Would definitely recommend. Also some nice spice! FFF knows how to make APAís but there DIPAís are amazing!

Bottle pour clear copper with moderate white head. Nose dank hop, toffee sweet malt, some of fruit hop. Taste moderate strong bitter up front. Dank hop carries through. Mold mid palate balancing sweetness. Long lasting bitter finish.
