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

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle at home. The aroma of this beer is amazing. Strong smells of citrus, almost smells like an orange! The appearance is golden with a thick white head. Taste is hoppy with a smooth taste at first and then the aftertaste is bitter. Overall good IPA. Iíve had better, but itís a solid ale.

On draft at Frankie's in Fort Worth. A rich amber color with almost no head. Does not really taste like an IPA - tastes like IPA crossed with a wheat bear. Caramel, some pine and a bubble gum-esque quality. All up front, kind of mellows - this is not really for me, but I could see others digging it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark and cloudy brown/amber color with a lot of foam, more than any beer iíve had yet and has medium amount of carbonation. Has a bit of a floral/ earthy and malt aroma. Has a strong but great taste, a bit of a citrus bitter taste, you can also tell that theres yeast in it. Leaves the tongue a little dry afterwards but overall a good beer.

Bottle. Amber with small head. Medium body with very forward Belgian yeast. Light booze and medium citrus hop bitterness. Pretty solid Belgian IPA.

Draft at DFW airport. Murky copper. Little head retention. Nice sipper with a hint of wildness maybe even a little herb. Decent. (#5953, 4/3/2015)

Bottle: Poured an amber color with a off white head. Aroma is yeast esters. Taste is a meld of yeast, metallic hops, and balanced malt.

Lagerboy (1575) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 19, 2015
12 fl. oz. bottle, thanks Chumly! Mostly clear orange copper, tan foam settles and lasts. Aroma is more floral, citrus, yeast and mild c-malt. Lightly bitter, slightly floral hop taste, citric, faint spice, lean toasted caramel malt, some Belgian yeast. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. Surprisingly tasty subtle hybrid. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

A hazed orange amber ipa with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with grassy floral hops, resinous character, grapefruit pulp, very nice. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with loads of resinous floral hops, treacle, clover field, nice and balanced. On tap at gas money, DFW.

Good, not great. I LIKE the hop-forward style; I also appreciate Belgian yeast. This beer is just a little of both. Not impressive enough to rate highly.

Let me preface this by saying I do not understand the Belgian IPA trend. I like Belgian beers and I love IPAís, but this style is neither. This beer is a light amber color with a ring of off white foam for a head. Earthy Belgian yeast nose with some fruit and citrus notes. This drinks much more Belgian than IPA. Some apple and berry fruit with Belgian candi sugar and caramel. The finish has some hints of hop bitterness, but not enough for me. Decent beer in an bastard style.
