It started out as a Belgo-American menage a trois, but then the brewers arrived and transformed the trans-oceanic affair into a beery lover pentangle. The collaborative minds at Louisville Beer Store, De Struise Brouwers and New Albanian Brewing Company offer this, a willfully disobedient Blonde India Pale Ale with a hop on her shoulder.

Bomber from quenholly. This pours a dark gold color with decent sized off-white head. Floral and grassy aroma with caramel. There’s also a touch of clove and Belgian yeast, surely the Struise influence there. The flavor has a toasted grain edge to it with a slick malty body, grassy notes, and a bitter hop finish. Nothing extreme though. Pretty straight forward here; solid but unspectacular. It probably could be considered an APA.

Draft. Hazy deep gold pour, white head, little retention/some lace. Aroma of grassy/citrus hops, yeast, bread, light dust. Taste is moderately bitter, grassy/floral hops, dusty, yeast, lemon, bread. Palate is soft, creamy, lightly bitter finish. Not really an IPA - closer to golden ale.

Bomber to snifter. Looks looks solid; a transparent burnt-orange with thin white lacing. Smells good; hoppy and spicy. Tastes decent; like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Solid.

Clear medium amber with a long-lasting off-white head and solid streaks of lace. Good-looking brew. Nice caramel malt going in, cut by mild hop bittering through the palate, finsih has both sides strolling hand in hand. Doesn’t seem strong enough for an IPA, but otherwise, very tasty and worth searching out. Recommended.

Beer pours like apple juice with a minimal cream head. Aroma is apple pie; spiced apples and cinnamon. Taste is tart, green apples and pears with a decent spicy backbone of cinnamon, coriander and nutmeg. Hops are always lurking in the background. Love to buy local in Indiana and this is a decent try. Go fort it if its available.

On cask at GTMW - Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose is lightly spiced, with gentle citrus and a clean bready malt base. Taste is clean and light bread, light sweetness, rye spice, and an herbal finish. Real smooth, with gentle carbonation.
