Draft, The Trappist. Very good IPA. It’s nicely balanced but still packs good hop flavor. Aroma is grassy with some citrus rind. Amarillo hops are evident. Caramel malt and yeast aromas backs things up. Taste is balanced for an American-style IPA. Good malt sweetness with a relatively dry and bitter finish. It’s definitely not a palate wrecker but rather a drinkable and tasty IPA.

Tasted on 12/24/10 from a 330mL bottle sent to me as an extra in a trade, Lot 41/24/2010. What a cool extra! Pours clear bright orange with a massive thick white head that recedes to thick, rocky lace. The nose is earthy hops with some tropical fruits and raspberry, and a light hay malt undertone. The flavor features the sweet tropical and raspberry fruits up front, moving to caramel malt, with the citrus and earthy hops helping to tie everything together. The body is light with average carbonation, and a long earthy hops and tropical fruit finish. This beer is very interesting, and very enjoyable.
