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

Bottled 8/13/13. Red-amber color, delicate white head and lace form up top. Sweet grainy malt and Belgian spices fill the air, supplemented by hops on the back end.

Sweet grain pushes the earthy hops back, imparting malty sweetness in its place. I thought I liked malty Single IPAs, but this is a bit much for me. However, the sticky, surprisingly viscous mouthfeel rocks my world. An interesting brew.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Dull amber, a little dark and hazy, thin off-white head, little lacing.   Candyish citrus peel like hopped up nose.   A little musty up front, pale/dank citrus bitterness that isn’t as sweet or candyish as the nose suggested.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Muted bitter finish, dull candyish citrus peel.   Not bright, but still interesting.   Thanks Bill!

Tap at the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a frothy cream colored head. Aroma is fairly yeasty right off the bat. Earthy hops, slight pine and soil. Bit of spice. Flavor is dry, hoppy, earthy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not the strongest beer from lakewood in garland texas, but a decent ipa. Hoppy but not punch you in the face hoppy, light with a little bite on the finish.

kevinator (721) - The Colony, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Interesting and better than expected. Faint aroma of floral hops. Dark copper color with a decent head. Medium weight with good carbonation. Spicy hoppy flavors up front. Peppery and the Belgian yeast adds a good curve ball to make this beer stand out in the sea of IPA’s. Tasty and worth a second visit.

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle from Rosebud Butternuts. Aroma seems floral/citrus with a nutty touch. Med body or better. Flavor is spicy, citrus, malty. The flavors are fairly strong - tho this is not a NW mouth burner the hop and yeast/spice are making it bitter enough. This flavor is quite different. Nice stuff.
