COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prodigiously hopped yet nimbly brewed with pilsner malts, Adversus ultimately achieves the improbable: a big, bold IPA made for summertime sipping. A hard-charging blend of Pacific Northwest hops leads the way, loading the nose with notes of stone fruit, pineapple, mango and earthy pine resin. Meanwhile, the use of traditional pilsner malts adds levity and dryness to the palate, allowing for a refreshing texture through the finish. The result is a double IPA that is high on hop aromas, balanced in bitterness and perfect for the long, warm days of summer.

Poured from 16 fl oz can (canned 06/09/17). Slightly hazy golden yellow with white head. Grapefruit hops, light resin, mild herbally floral character, hint of tropical hops, alcohol hidden. Good, but prefer Fortem.

16 ounce can from Lukas Liquors Kansas City. June canning. No way to know because of the box around it. Still, smooth tasting with light hops and malt and some tropical notes. Wonder what it’s like real fresh.

jredmond (8325) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2017

crossovert (13078) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2017
473ml can. FW’s seminal DIPA Double Jack was canned to make way for the LvU series. The first brew in the series seemed to deliver, much more than its luponic counterpart over the months but let’s see how this, one is. Pours a clear gold with a nice large head that leaves camo-style lacing. The aroma is not as in your face as double jack, but it also has less malt character. It is soft and fruity, honey, booze, tropical, juicy fruit. Flavor is a bit spicy, tropical fruit, juicy fruit, touch boozy with a muddled malt character but all in all decent. Still does not stack up to the Double Jack, not enough of a hop assault, this tries to be too east coast.
