Lips Of Faith Belgo IPA

22 oz bottle in the usual Lips of Faith series presentation.
Beer pours out a pretty dark, copper color with a medium head. The lace is surprisingly good and forms a nice pattern. This is one of the better parts of the beer.
Nose is largely American IPA without much Belgian influence. The tastes do better, with a healthy dose of Belgian candy sugar and some yeast notes. Some metallic notes appear in the back end with a little coinage. The beer seems very dry to me, and the combination offers a bit of a battle of the senses which keep the beer interesting. There is some fruit, but it has a yeasty, fruit note like the slightly aging skins of black grapes. A bit of a musty note that’s not funk, but is a little moldy.
Another interesting beer in the Lips of Faith series which keeps me interested. New Belgium has produced beers in the series that have varied between really good and really interesting and this one does not disappoint.
