It's pretty solid. I haven't had very many Belgian IPAs, but this one is pretty damn good.

It really is. It's the only beer I like from them and it's damn good. The large dose of Simcoe plays nice with the Belgian yeast phenolics. You will like.

Well, I guess I'll have to grab a bottle of it then.

Welcome down. Spec's is a adult Disneyland. Wait till you go down to the downtown one. It's 10x bigger than the one in the woodlands. Lots of goodies there.

Very good Belgian IPA. One of my faves.

Got to partake is a Westy XII this evening at a home brew club meeting. Pretty good stuff, I don't get the hype though. It's a great quad, but just that, nothing else.

Now I'm cleaning out the fridge of the beers that'd made it to the back row. Love Torpedo, but this time of year, it's an easy one to overlook. Luckily I have a few more to remind me how much I like it.

As a DIPA this is pretty disappointing, which sucks double because Hopadillo (they're IPA) is so good. There's virtually no hop aroma even after a good swirling. The bitterness is there, but it's not very strong and I am not getting any hop flavor. Maybe I'm just stressed out from being arrested this morning, but I don't think so.

I've never tried it, but I don't understand the hype either. I mean, I'm sure it's good and all but for $85 a sixer it better perform favors of an unmentionable nature after I drink each bottle.
