COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This inspired seasonal combines the unique flavors of a Belgian IPA and Thai spices, namely fresh ginger, lemongrass and Thai lime leaves. This one-of-a-kind beer is insanely aromatic and citrusy with a nice hoppy finish.

Draft at the source. Hazy golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of pine, tangerines. Taste is piney citrus, sweet candy. OK.

Very pale straw-coloured pour. The nose has a lot of soft lime and lemony zestiness. Fresh and spicy with a fairly assertive Amarillo hop flavour. The malts are well-attenuated, but there is an odd sweetness, presumably from the herbs. Dusty and bone dry. Itís quite interesting, but itís not all that good.

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
In short: A strange spicy IPA with a bit too much ginger
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is a bit tangy with notes of tangerines and some ginger. Taste packs a lot of cereals with a honeyed bread flavor, lemongrass, ginger, other spices. A whole lot of hops bring a sharp bitterness. The ginger comes out too strong in the finish and dominates the after-taste. Overall this was fun, but not something I would drink on a regular basis. I get bored very quickly with spiced beer when it is not a big Belgian dark ale. The name is really funny though. Thai PA. Get it? Thai PA. Hilarious. The girlfriend didnít understand why I as laughing so much. Iím always the only one laughing, whether Iím with my girlfriend or surrounded by police officers.

The aroma is spicy, belgian yeast. The appearance is a hazy oranfge, white head. The flavor is a little more fiery than the aroma implies, asian spices, belgian yeastiness, citrus hops. The finish is both fiery/spicy and citrusy, the most intersting part of this beer. Medium in body. Unique and enjoyable.

kramer (4941) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Tap, at brewery. Pours a cloudy dark gold body with a small wispy white head. Big lime and ginger nose with some herbal components backed by some bready malts and a light Belgian yeast note. More lime and ginger on the flavor with a nice spicy yeastiness and some bready doughy malt. It doesnít really come across as though it used the Belgian yeast in the flavor. Mouthfeel is spicy and prickly with fine fizzy carbonation. Long lingering spiced finish. Not sure I really like this one, but it is unique.

MiP (13598) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2010
Draught, 7.2% at the brewpub. Sweetish hop aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Small creamy white head. The flavour starts off with a good bitterness, then there are some distinct strange spice flavours. Clean, but a bit confusing. Creamy mouthfeel.

cpetrone84 (1379) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Had on tap at the brewery. A-hazy deep orangish amber color with a thinner slightly off white head. S-the nose is extremely floral with lots of herbal spice to it, notes of a belgian yeast, light citric aromas behind. T-this odd spicey herbal taste dominates, not a fan of this spice but definitely present, citrus hops and a light resignous pine note comes in towards the back. M-smooth and creamy on the palate, medium bodied with strong carbonation. D-the spices seem to dominate and the hop flavors take a backseat. they donít work well together for me and seem to play against each other.

tap @ bullfrog. I was looking forward to this beer, but it disapointed. Arouma is spicey and vineous. Caramel malts and some piney hoppiness. Ginger isnít really coming through. some herbal basil. underwhelmed by the íthai-flavors.í The little I got wasnít integrated well with the IPA-backbone.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a yellow orange straw color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of light bubble gum, lemon lime citrus, and hops. Taste of lemongrass, lime, spice and hops. Gingery aftertaste.

Part of a sampler at brewpub. I found all the brews to be slightly better than average though I donít remember specifics for most of them. I remember this one better than the others though because it was the only one I didnít like.
