Classic Belgian aroma, dark golden colour and tight white head. Immediate taste is the clove-ish yeast. Nice strong bodied beer, good bitterness with (I think) American hops. Banana on the finish. Wim (4133) - Weelde, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2011

orange brown with a big ’ol fluffy off white head.
aromas of yeast, cinnamon, peppery spice, grass, straw, skunk, mild pine and florals.
the flavor is the same only a bit too sweet. there is a minimal amount of bitter and dryness on the finish but they’re not enough. it is crisp but sweet. 7/4/7/3/15

[3825-20110713] 355mL bottle. Floral muted soap aroma has strong notes of lychee hops. Slightly hazy, dark orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Bitter mango hops flavour follows up with lychee. Medium body is quite bitter. Great balance overall, love the muted tropical fruit infusion and bitter bite. (8/3/8/4/17) 4.0+

One of my favorite ipas. A local brewery that has come along way. A staple in my beer frig. Banana note if your looking for it and citrus.

. Pours a light brown/orange beer with a decent white head. Fruity aroma with hints of spices. Taste is great. Starts malty,fruity and ends with a big amount of hops. Bitter aftertaste. I really enjoyed the belgian touch to this IPA. Interesting combination. DanielBrown (4532) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Smells like Duvel, with a slight lowering of dryness. Can’t quite reconcile this one: the initial IPA is reasonably peppered and spritzy, whilst the finish is seawater dry. The Belgian strength reveals itself briefly mid-way, with a yawn of earwaxed bubblegum. Quite drinkable I suppose, for the strength, but neither fish nor foal.

Draft. I do like the combo of two styles and this one pulls it off. Pours a deep golden yellow. Smell is of Citrus hops, some caramel hops and the knob Belgium yeast component. Taste is medium bitter but is really mellowed by the banana and Bready yeast. Nice combo that hides the booze very well for a non-overpowerimg brew.

Bottle. Clear yellow/orange with a white head. Banana, light yeast, sweetness, bitter grassy hops, and light clove/spice. I am not a big fan of flying dog, but this was fairly good. theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Pours dark copper with a fair light tan head. Aroma is full of hops, citrus and floral, some sweet malts and pine. A little thick but very smooth, it has a a hop character that follows you all the way through. There are tastes of earth, pine, alcohol and caramel.
