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

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).

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

Tejas (882) - 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.

mar (4960) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Deep amber pour with a cream head. Nose is belgian yeast, florals, super hoppy, tropical fruits. Great on the palate, super hoppy, tropical fruits, citrus, light spice, and a sweet finish.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2012
On tap at Goodfriend. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of orange and floral notes, with some biscuit malt and Belgian yeast notes thrown in. The flavor is similar. I get some bitter hop notes, with some perfume and citrus thrown in. There is also some grass and biscuit malt in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy orange body with a medium cream head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, yeast, and florals. Flavor of caramel, nuts, yeast, orange peel, and grass with a dry, bitter finish.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2013 Out of growler thanks to Mar. Pours hazy orange/gold with soapy beige head. Aroma has very nice tropical fruit and malt notes, floral. Flavor is much the same, dry with a light bitterness in the finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Overall, very solid brew!

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.

legion242 (2270) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Poured a nice amber with little head. Soft nose and a very soft, very appreciated palate. Not a hopheads Ipa, but one I could easily stomach.
