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

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

Ferris (2026) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
Bottle - Fruity yeast esters and some light citrus. Clear copper with a thin beige head. Fruity yeast, dry bitterness and a clean finish. Nicely balanced sweetness and bitterness, easy drinking and quite nice.

Dogbrick (7244) - 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.

Light easy drinking, slight caramel flavor amongst the bitter ipa tastes. Not the most strong ipa ever

(Backlog) 12 oz botle. Clear light amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is caramel, sweet, citrus, pine, and hoppy. Taste is of caramel, sweet malts, pine, and citrus.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Thanks to crajun for sending this one in a trade. Pours hazy gold with a white head. The aroma is spicy citrus with a touch of Belgian funk in back. The flavor is lightly bitter but with little malt sweetness. Not a typical IPA though due to a definite Belgian yeast influence. Nice one, definitely different than the norm.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Clear bronze with a generous foamy off white head. The nose is citrusy and funky with a Belgian bright fruit ester combined with American hop dankness. The flavor is strong and malt forward with some toast and earthy caramel sweetness, with some trailing Belgian pear/apricot esters following behind with a touch of grapefruit rind. Really pleasant, complex, and quite drinkable.

gkeh (137) - Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Hay malts on the nose. Slight floral tones are there. Pours a dark amber with a very thick head that lasts throughout. Light bitter taste is there, as well as a a light sweetness. Just OK, and not my idea of an IPA.

sloth (2400) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Medium sized off white head with good retention and a nice coating lace that lasts. Hazy, copper amber hued brew. Mild nose of floral, spicy hops and maybe a hint of vinegar? Lightly medium in body with a slightly prickly carbo level, lil oily. Light grainy flavors and pepperyness, little grass ans ome metallic notes, yeasy. Fairly dry finish, little fruit. Too clean. Bottle from fiveacestx. Thanks Cam!

12oz at my place with Ceasar. Bottle is old apparently. Aroma is floral juicy, some earth. Tarts is thin on hops, sweet, juicy floral.
