COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hop forward IPA has just enough malt to offer the brew some balance while still keeping hops the primary focus. A hefty portion of crystal malt lends a slight sweetness to the taste. Almost entirely late hopped, we want to accentuate the delicate fruity, piney, and tropical aromas and flavors of the American and Australian hops used throughout the brew process. We went heavy on the hops while still keeping the bitterness in check. You’ll find our Mississippi coast Chandeleur Island charter fishing boats from Biloxi & Gulfport anchored for the weekend in Lil’ Smack Channel.

Kinda bland and a bit too sweet but drinkable enough. The earthy hop character is decent enough but not really compelling. I can drink it.

Lil Smack IPA has a thin, off-white head, a mostly clear, amber appearance, some lazy bubbles, and low-level lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of mango, old peaches, malt, some soil, and dankness. Taste is of all that, with the hop bitterness riding behind the malt, then coming to the fore, as one drinks down on this beer. Mouthfeel is high medium and slightly slick, and Lil Smack IPA finishes semi-puckering dry. Is it odd? Yes. Is it good? Yes. RJT

At a tasting, thanks, small stable bubbly creamy head, quite clear and quite depep orange color, aroma of pomello and onions with some shrubs, malty herbal flavor with hints of onions, medium bitterness, light but noticable carbonation. Nice.

Leighton (22820) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2016
Can at home in London - picked up at Stein’s in NOLA. Pours mostly clear, rich gold with a thick, frothy off-white head. Ripening citrus fruits in the nose, some pine notes, lightly toasted malts. Light to medium sweet flavour with moderate bready malt character, semi-ripe orange, mellow piney bitterness, some crackers, melon, nips of mango. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with reasonable balance, more forward malts, lightly subdued citrus character, restrained bitterness. Fair overall.
