3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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. didn’t like it mostly due to the bitterness but Lakewood is doing a good job overall, this just wasn’t 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

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 it’s still mostly a spicy Belgian ale with some bitterness. I’m enjoying this more than most Belgian IPA’s I’ve had. Finish is very smooth and a little creamy. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. This is really well made but Belgian IPA’s are just hard for me to love. This is probably the best Belgian IPA I’ve had.
