Pretty much what I expected. I love this style of IPA and you have to go out of your way not to make a tasty version of it. This is a tasty version of the style. While its not Chouffe Houblon or Urthel Hop-It, its tasty all the same.

Bottle from Whole Foods Arlington. Pretty clear light amber body with medium head. Nose is hoppy with spicy notes. Taste is also of hops, spices, caramel. With nice floral notes. A bit tart in the creamy finish. Pretty enjoyable and high octane!

emacgee (4658) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Very clean and bright straw gold with two fingers of white head. Nose shows muted hops and esters, some candy and spice in there but not strong. Some floral hops but not much. Nice flavor, spicy phenolics and some sweet bready malt. Not much IPA here and some Belgian. I like it regardless. Medium light bodied. Hard to describe.

Man, I was really hoping for massive sweet, tropical aromas and its really grassy and thats about it. Not really much going on. Taste was pretty flat and grassy. No recognizable tastes from the Belgian yeast, or the dry hop. I feel like its just eight point with some different yeast. I could have gotten a bad bottle maybe.

nearbeer (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2016
12 oz. Orange-golden with some soapy spots and a large ring of foam. Nose is citrus zest, toffee, and resiny herb. Tastes of spicy resin, orange, bread, honey. Long finish has a nice mix of resin and spiced pear. Medium body has medium carbonation and a very drinkable balance.

Doofgoblin (512) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2015
Its not bad. The sweetness is more than I expected with a nice citrusy punch. Its also not very aromatic or bitter. I totally get the belgian with an ipa twist...round pegs go into square holes a lot easier than one would think...

Tap. Pale golden with small head. Strange take on the style. Fruity aroma. Low bitterness. Not terribly hoppy.
