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

Thanks to crajun for sending this one in a trade. Pours hazy gold with a white head. The aroma is spicy citrus with a touch of Belgian funk in back. The flavor is lightly bitter but with little malt sweetness. Not a typical IPA though due to a definite Belgian yeast influence. Nice one, definitely different than the norm.

Clear bronze with a generous foamy off white head. The nose is citrusy and funky with a Belgian bright fruit ester combined with American hop dankness. The flavor is strong and malt forward with some toast and earthy caramel sweetness, with some trailing Belgian pear/apricot esters following behind with a touch of grapefruit rind. Really pleasant, complex, and quite drinkable.

Hay malts on the nose. Slight floral tones are there. Pours a dark amber with a very thick head that lasts throughout. Light bitter taste is there, as well as a a light sweetness. Just OK, and not my idea of an IPA.

sloth (2602) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Medium sized off white head with good retention and a nice coating lace that lasts. Hazy, copper amber hued brew. Mild nose of floral, spicy hops and maybe a hint of vinegar? Lightly medium in body with a slightly prickly carbo level, lil oily. Light grainy flavors and pepperyness, little grass ans ome metallic notes, yeasy. Fairly dry finish, little fruit. Too clean. Bottle from fiveacestx. Thanks Cam!

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 (6300) - 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 isnít 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!
