Pale straw-coloured pour with a nice, tight white head. Very bright lemony/grapefruity nose. Quite resinous with a decent bit of dank aroma hops. Fresh and assertive bitterness along with a touch of fresh grassiness as well. Light resiny palate that leads into a bright lemon citrus flavour toward the finish. Really fresh, bright IPA – count me a fan of this one.

(Old BA rate - growler) Pours with a thinner pure white frothy head that doesn’t last too long; spotty lacing, but there. Mostly clear very light gold color; not a whole lot to note. Belgian yeastiness with a good degree of spices; nice hoppiness that’s a bit herbal; slight hint of sweetness at the end of the aroma. Light passion fruits up front; light malt sweetness; herbal and earthy hop punch; yeasty and a bit bready as well; lots of nice layers. Thinner to medium; very soft carbonation; would’ve like more snap for the style. Really nice drinking; interesting coupled with a low abv = sessionable as hell.

On tap at the Bruery’s 1st anniversary party 5/16/09: Pours a cloudy pale golden with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of biscuity pale Belgian malts and some fresh floral grassy and citrusy hops. Starts light bodied and refreshing with good carbonation and a mild sweetness drying out before a floral grapefruity finish. Well balanced and very drinkable.

Hand bottle thanks to bman1113vr. The smell is fruits, spices, peachy, and good. The taste is papery, fruits, spices, malts, hops, and good. The look is clear, not too much white head, and golden in color.

Draught at The Bruery’s anniversary. Hazy light straw color and a frothy white head, giving it a wit-like appearance. After several beers with no hops in the aroma, this one really blew me away. Sweet grapefruit, spicy hops, cinnamon, pastry dough and oranges. The flavor has light malts with a spicy, hoppy, somewhat herbal bitter finish. Medium-light bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty light and refreshing drinker overall, with a pleasing bitterness and an amazing aroma.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2009
Hand bottled bottle. Body-thin flat piss yellow. Looks like a urine sample. Nose-apricot, peach, lychee. Taste-spiky, bong water, hemp seed, sterile, coriander, light lotion on the back end. And odd combination of flavors that really works out in the end.
