COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA has more in common with its Trappist cousins than with the face shredding IPAís 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. Itís the thinkiní manís IPA. Food Pairings: Spicy foods from Thai to Mexican food to Hot Wings

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 (865) - 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 IPAís. Tasty and worth a second visit.

bhensonb (10777) - 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.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Not bad, but not the Belgian style deliciousness that I was hoping for. Worth a try if you're interested, but I wouldn't return to it.

Not sure I have tried a Belgian ipa before; sounds like a good idea. aroma was that of a Belgian - yeast, spice. Taste starts that way and then moderately strong bitter hops kick in. didnít like it mostly due to the bitterness but Lakewood is doing a good job overall, this just wasnít my style.

12 ounce bottle. A light fruity nose with some sweet phenolic Belgian yeast. The flavor is a great meld of Belgian elements with bigger fruity hops, light bitterness. Some nutty flavors with banana and clove, big oranges. Good.

SPDickerman (917) - Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pours clear copper with a large white head. Smells metallic, yeasty, and piney. Taste is bitter, bready, and a little metallic. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Lakewood Hop Trapp finishes with a mild bitterness.
