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

Tap at Holy Grail Plano TX. Very hazy dark gold with little head. Nice yeasty nose with some mild floral hops. Taste starts off with a Belgian yeast light on the tongue then a mild tangy hoppiness with a nice bitter kick. Good stuff here if you’re in the mood for a more subtle version of an Ipa

On tap at the Lakewood Brewery - Nice orange amber brew that with a medium bubbly head. Has a Belgian yeast aroma and a nice orange hoppy taste. Has a nice bitter finish. Very tasty!

On tap at Flying Saucer Addison. Pours a cloudy copper with a thick frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral hop and grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet hop and yeast flavor with nice lingering dry finish. A decent IPA from Lakewood.

I had my first one a few days ago and plan to go to the brewery this Saturday for another tasting. I need to have a few more but I liked the hop smell and bitter taste. A definite grapefruit aroma which is fun to smell and goes with the general taste of an IPA but it did taste a bit green as I recall the tastes of some of my home brews. But I like that, too.

Another solid entry from Lakewood. A good standard, summer, American IPA. It seems to be a solid entry where they can begin to vary a bit (Imperial, etc).

Tejas (869) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2012
I’m just not a fan of these mash-up beer styles. This one struggles from an identity crisis. Is it a Belgian or an IPA? It has the characteristics of both but they blend to make a weird just OK beer.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2012
On tap at the brewery’s 1st tour. Deep amber brew with a nice white head. Nose of spicy Belgian yeast, floral hops, and citrus (especially grapefruit) - bitterness is there but not overpowering. Lots of juicy citrus and earthy hops.
