Had this before but it was served too cold to enjoy.

Served chilled and poured into my Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance is very good. A huge off-white head forms as the beer is poured. As it settles down it leaves a ton of spiderweb-like lacing in the glass with a crater of foam. The beer's color is dirty yellow/straw.

Smell is good. Aromas of Belgian yeast, roasted peanuts and hops. Not a very strong smell but still good.

Taste is above-average. Much like the smell but with a slight alcohol flavor. Hops are apparent yet don't make a strong statement in the taste.

Mouthfeel is above-average. Thankfully not over-carbonated. Nice creamy texture but still could use more body because the beer finishes a little bit thin. Uneven.

Drinkability is good. I could drink a few of these during a session no problem.

Overall: A good 'Belgian IPA' but I'd rather have a Hoblen Chouffe Triple IPA instead which is a better example of the style, imo.

Served In: Tulip
