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

Sampled at the Texas Craft Brew fest, my score is based off of some incoherent notes and a 2 oz sample.

bhops (430) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Tap at Cock & Bull. Large head with nice lacing. Aroma is almost all floral. Flavor is hoppy but not overwhelming. Hops shines through. To me, really well balanced. Very pleasant beer. Good everyday drinker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pershing (480) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Pours clear orange with a lasting head. Sweet malt and citrus aroma. Excellent hop bitterness without over doing it. Reminds more of an English IPA than American. Very smooth on the palate with a lingering hop finish. Very nicely done.

dzimm27 (136) - - MAR 2, 2013
Aroma mostly of coriander, touch of hops - rather nice. Dark golden with fine bubbles. Balanced bitterness with belgian funk finish, gives it some texture on the end, not super smooth but not harsh. Pretty good belgian IPA, probably better than Ommegang’s

roxtersoxter (353) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours cloudy amber color out of bottle with large off white head. Great aroma of spices but not very strong taste of spice. I enjoy this beer and I don't normally enjoy Belgian-style beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bleeng (1548) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2012
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!
