Poured a yellowish color with aromas of strawberries, grain and some light sugar. Flavors followed suit light on the palate enjoyable overall nice strawberry flavor but not overppwering. Thanks to the in laws for grabbing this one on growler Tuesday for me.

Mostly yellow in color. I’ll be damned if they didn’t find a way to sneak the flavor if the dessert in this beer! Berries, cereal grains, doughy malts. Cool!

DonIPA (8) - Pinellas Park, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2013 does not count
Aroma: Wheat, malty with a hint of honey and strawberry. A little floral. Think Franken Berry cereal. Appearance: Hazy yellow color with thin white lacing / head. Taste: Malty bread / cake, transitions to a sweet honey, lactose sugar then comes the strawberry and a hint of bittering hops to keep this beer grounded. Palate: Thin, soft and a hint creaminess from the residual sweetness. Has very slight bitter finish Overall: I enjoyed this beer. It stays iight and lageresque without hitting you over the head with flavor. I can certainly pick out the Hotter than Helles base beer. It achieves its goal of offering a strawberry shortcake flavor much like the CCB muffin ales do.
