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

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.

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.

Pours a hazy orange/grey/red color. Notes of belgian candi sugar, earthy hops, and chips. Lots of good malted barley. Foamy mouthfeel. Strange after taste

12 oz bottle thanks to crajun. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a big frothy head that fades slowly and leaves nice lacing. Great appearance. Aroma is almost entirely Belgian spices and yeast. Light floral notes too. More flowers come out in the taste but itís still mostly a spicy Belgian ale with some bitterness. Iím enjoying this more than most Belgian IPAís Iíve had. Finish is very smooth and a little creamy. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. This is really well made but Belgian IPAís are just hard for me to love. This is probably the best Belgian IPA Iíve had.

12 oz bottle compliments of Crajun. Poured a slightly hazy copper into a perfect pint glass. Fluffy off white head. Aroma of yeast, bread and earth. Flavorful with much Belgian yeast upfront, nice hop bitterness at the end, paired nicely with some spice notes. Tasty combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
