22oz bomber pours into my glass a clear golden yellow/orange hue with a creamy two fingers of foam on top and good active carbonation as well. Aromas start out with fruity yeast esters and spiciness with some clove and a touch of pepper. Big citrusy hops with orange peel accents. Quite intricate and the hop kick is quite nice.

First sip brings crisp malt upfront with a nice melding of Belgian yeast esters and fruity spiciness. Notes of clove, nutmeg and a light peppery accent. Midway through the hops kick in with a citrusy/bitter hit. Notes of orange peel and hop resins on the way down. Finishes smooth with a bit of lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, somewhat creamy and smooth. Goes down with ease for being nearly 10%. Overall, a tasty Belgian IPA for sure. I've only had a few so far but I have enjoyed them. Thanks to PatronWizard for sending this my way.
