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 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.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2014
Sample at The Bottle Shop in Dallas. The beer pours a clear copper color with a medium thick and fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, malt and fruity yeast. The finish is moderately bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Dull amber, a little dark and hazy, thin off-white head, little lacing.   Candyish citrus peel like hopped up nose.   A little musty up front, pale/dank citrus bitterness that isnít as sweet or candyish as the nose suggested.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Muted bitter finish, dull candyish citrus peel.   Not bright, but still interesting.   Thanks Bill!

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.

Mora2000 (5834) - 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) cloudy rich orange, lasting very fine creamy head. Nose of agave, light grapefruit, cream, spicy like rye but maybe from the yeast. Taste of orange pulp, moderate spicy kick, grapefruit peel and cream. More English IPA than Belgian in my opinion. Nice palate carbonation. Mild bitter linger.
