COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA has more in common with its Trappist cousins than with the face shredding IPA’s of the west coast. While we still have a healthy bitter backbone and floral hop notes, this IPA is decidedly malty and complex with the addition of our Belgian yeast. It’s the thinkin’ man’s IPA. Food Pairings: Spicy foods from Thai to Mexican food to Hot Wings

June 2015. Travelled to a terminal that wasn’t based on food stamps. Lost in Dallas somewhere but found a borderline mexican foodery with actual taps I give a shit about. Maybe Qdoba? That probably isn’t right as it looks like random letters pulled out of a bag. Beeeer- interesting. Bold yet simple and odd. Heated hops, dark caramel, pepper that isn’t pepper spice that I sometimes find in ips’s, darker caramel, light citrus, lighter pine, not sweet but slighly berry like. Hops really catching up and imparting a very heavy after taste. Extra points for meanness.

On draft at Frankie's in Fort Worth. A rich amber color with almost no head. Does not really taste like an IPA - tastes like IPA crossed with a wheat bear. Caramel, some pine and a bubble gum-esque quality. All up front, kind of mellows - this is not really for me, but I could see others digging it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark and cloudy brown/amber color with a lot of foam, more than any beer i’ve had yet and has medium amount of carbonation. Has a bit of a floral/ earthy and malt aroma. Has a strong but great taste, a bit of a citrus bitter taste, you can also tell that theres yeast in it. Leaves the tongue a little dry afterwards but overall a good beer.

Bottle. Amber with small head. Medium body with very forward Belgian yeast. Light booze and medium citrus hop bitterness. Pretty solid Belgian IPA.

Rich Belgian yeasts and citrus hops backed up by caramel malts and coriander. I’m loving this!

Braudog (6026) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2015
Draft at DFW airport. Murky copper. Little head retention. Nice sipper with a hint of wildness maybe even a little herb. Decent. (#5953, 4/3/2015)

SHIG (3983) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle: Poured an amber color with a off white head. Aroma is yeast esters. Taste is a meld of yeast, metallic hops, and balanced malt.

Lagerboy (1581) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2015
12 fl. oz. bottle, thanks Chumly! Mostly clear orange copper, tan foam settles and lasts. Aroma is more floral, citrus, yeast and mild c-malt. Lightly bitter, slightly floral hop taste, citric, faint spice, lean toasted caramel malt, some Belgian yeast. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Surprisingly tasty subtle hybrid. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Lubiere (11245) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2015
A hazed orange amber ipa with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with grassy floral hops, resinous character, grapefruit pulp, very nice. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with loads of resinous floral hops, treacle, clover field, nice and balanced. On tap at gas money, DFW.

Kerosene (2) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 1, 2015 does not count
Good, not great. I LIKE the hop-forward style; I also appreciate Belgian yeast. This beer is just a little of both. Not impressive enough to rate highly.
