Default Hot alcohol taste in Belgian IPA.

So I finally kegged my BIPA, though its not fully carbed right now. The OG was 1.061, and the FG was 1.006. Attenuation was somewhere 90%. The funky taste from the yeast is there, plus the hop bitterness, plus.....A hot alcohol taste. My apartment stays around 60 degrees, so even a +10 degree internal temp would be within limits. Im just wondering if the higher attenuation is causing the hot taste, and if it will mellow while carbing.

8lb 2 row
3lb munich
1.5lb turbinado sugar
1lb dme

wyeast 3522 ardennes yeast (made a starter)

OG 1.061
FG 1.006
alcohol 7.3%
4 weeks in primary, one week so far carbing. 5 weeks total.

I personally think all Belgium Pale Ales taste hot, normally taste like sweet tea that somebody put some Everclear into. IMHO
