COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Belgian IPA is based on our regular IPA – pale, Munich, Carapils and caramel malts, hopped 4 times in the kettle and double dry hopped with a blend of Cascade, Citra, Chinook, and Columbus hops. The Belgian IPA features a larger portion of Citra hops and a higher degree of attenuation (7.7% abv compared to 6.8% for the regular IPA, same starting gravity) along with the added fruity/spicy character from the Belgian yeast results in an intense blast of hop aroma and flavor.

A very hoppy IPA that is just short of going too far on bitterness. The hop flavor and aroma is strong but not earthy, and there is some malty balance. Finishes a bit sour. Appearance is orange and average for a Belgian pale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Beszarás! 0,33-as, ronda zöld dobozban került a kezembe, na gondoltam itt egy adag híg fos lesz. De nem! Mindent tudott, amit egy jó ipának tudni kell. Sötét narancs szín, igazi gyümölcsös, komlós, szőlős, fenyős illat, kellemesen keserédesen, gyümölcsösen és citrusosan kezdődő íz, aminek a közepe gyantás, keserű, igen komlós, de egy kicsit lágyítja az élesztő, a vége pedig szigorúan keserű és száraz. Több ennél sokkal drágább ipa is tanulhatna tőle!

Cybercat (3282) - Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Aroma is SERIOUSLY hoppy - heck, hoppier than a kangaroo on angel dust! Pours a nice clear amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head. Flavor is very hoppy with a nice citrus undertone and a hint of honey to offset the bitterness. Texture has good body and lots of fizz and sass. If you can get this on tap, get on it like a duck on a June Bug!

Foxbush (1265) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2012
This was tasted with my son in Columbia, SC at the World of Beer. The IPA had a strong citrus aroma and taste. The color was light amber and poured with a small head and lacing. The higher alcohol was very deceptive. The medium body ale had average carbonation. The finish was smooth with some bitter aftertaste.

Pours cloudy copper capped with a small white head. No lacing left behind. Aroma shows sugary malt and yeast. Medium bodied with candy sugar presence that gets quickly overrun by heavy handed bitterness.

On tap at Flying Saucer Columbia on 01/21/2011. Clear amber body with a medium creamy tan head. Sweet caramel, toffee, and light spice aroma. Sweet toffee, spice, and grainy flavor with a dry astringent finish. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.
