COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Audrey Hopburn Belgian IPA

Audrey was born in Belgium.
From an early age she took to the stage and began a relatively successful career. Soon, however, she left acting to pursue her dream - of becoming a fairly obvious beer pun.

Stemming from our Project X line, Tank Ten is a tickle trunk of tasty treats. This series is payback to our hard working brewers. We’ve reserved fermenting tank number ten for them and have given them the green light to brew whatever the heck they want. Bottoms up!

In short: A fruity-grassy blond IPA, clean but yeasty, low on malts, refreshing. Very enjoyable session beer.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a few days after receiving the bottle from blankboy, thanks a lot Paul.
The look: Cloudy orange-blond body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: The moderately hoppy noes has bright fruits (clementines, pineapples) as well as some wet grass, dried yellowed grass and floral notes. Most striking feature of the taste is how timid the malt bill is. Discreet dry wheaty crackers, a slightly sweet fruity flavour akin to breakfast juice (pineapples, clementines, apples). A clean bitterness of medium intensity that adds sun dried yellowed grass and dried countryside field flowers to the citrusy hops. I didn’t get the “Belgian” part of this beer described as a Belgian IPA by the brewery, yes it is yeasty but not particularly Belgian in nature, no more Belgian than any unfiltered yeasty “normal” IPA I’ve had. I usually don’t care much for yeasty IPAs with timid malts but somehow I really enjoyed this one, simple, clean, refreshing, bright, highly sessionnable. Audrey Hopburn, funny name, but if Great Lakes makes a wild ale and doesn’t call it Brett Pitt then I don’t understand their naming convention.

650ml bottle. Golden orange in colour with a thin but lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is of tropical fruits, citrus, pineapple and froral hops. The flavour is of pineapple, citrus and tropical fruits, some yeast and bitterness. Light bitterness in the mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. Another nice new beer from Great Lakes. I’m loving these Belgian IPA’s.

Une immense surprise pour moi cette bière qui me fut rapportée par Ju-Lo de la LCBO. Merci mon vieux! Dès l’ouverture de la bouteille, une forte odeur de farmhouse envahit la pièce. En plus d’être magnifiquement trouble, mousseuse et collante, la bière sent oxtraordinairement bon! Des arômes de blé, de houblons, une touche de funk. C’est beaucoup de choses à la fois: Belge, Pale Ale, IPA, saison... Très complexe et intéressant. En bouche c’est à la fois mielleux, frais, amer... Le meilleur de la blonde d’abbaye et de la IPA réunis dans une bière fraîche et multidimensionnelle. Une très belle découverte!

Really nice pour... golden, hazy, huge head. Smells slightly yeasty, earthy hops, and herbal. Taste is pretty big, hoppy, bitter, dry, slightly astringent finish, good carbonation, medium bodied, yeast, etc. It’s a good one.

Finally rating after several bottles which I enjoyed too much to stop and type. Hazy medium gold with a small white head leaving patchy lace. Nose is juicy citrus and pine with some pear, pepper, light tropical fruit and caramel. Flavour is an excellent balance of light malt sweetness and a big hoppy bitterness with pepper for accent. Mouth is medium with average carbonation and a long dry bitter finish. Would love to see Great Lakes put the #10 on a bunch more tanks and keep cranking out quantity of everything in this series.

Bouteille 650ml, gracieuseté de msjpearson, Thanks Mike! Couleur dorée limpide, mousse blanche laissant une dentelle fuyante. Arôme d’agrumes, malt, levure, cornichons?, poivre vert. Goût de malt, levure, bonne amertume, zeste de pomélo, houblon résineux. Carbonatation très élevée, corps moyen.

Hazy gold, thick fluffy head lots of lacing. Aroma has light Belgian phenolics, some citrus fruit comes in on the end. Sodacracker malt flavor, light bitterness, finish is dry. Hop flavor takes a back seat tot the Belgian phenolics, there’s still a touch of the cattiness I don’t like in Belgian ipas. Well made just not my favorite style.
