COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Audrey Hopburn Belgian IPA

Audrey was born in Belgium.
From an early age she took to the stage and began a relatively successful career. Soon, however, she left acting to pursue her dream - of becoming a fairly obvious beer pun.

Stemming from our Project X line, Tank Ten is a tickle trunk of tasty treats. This series is payback to our hard working brewers. Weve reserved fermenting tank number ten for them and have given them the green light to brew whatever the heck they want. Bottoms up!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAY 23, 2013
In short: A fruity-grassy blond IPA, clean but yeasty, low on malts, refreshing. Very enjoyable session beer.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh a few days after receiving the bottle from blankboy, thanks a lot Paul.
The look: Cloudy orange-blond body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: The moderately hoppy noes has bright fruits (clementines, pineapples) as well as some wet grass, dried yellowed grass and floral notes. Most striking feature of the taste is how timid the malt bill is. Discreet dry wheaty crackers, a slightly sweet fruity flavour akin to breakfast juice (pineapples, clementines, apples). A clean bitterness of medium intensity that adds sun dried yellowed grass and dried countryside field flowers to the citrusy hops. I didnt get the Belgian part of this beer described as a Belgian IPA by the brewery, yes it is yeasty but not particularly Belgian in nature, no more Belgian than any unfiltered yeasty normal IPA Ive had. I usually dont care much for yeasty IPAs with timid malts but somehow I really enjoyed this one, simple, clean, refreshing, bright, highly sessionnable. Audrey Hopburn, funny name, but if Great Lakes makes a wild ale and doesnt call it Brett Pitt then I dont understand their naming convention.

650ml bottle. Golden orange in colour with a thin but lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is of tropical fruits, citrus, pineapple and froral hops. The flavour is of pineapple, citrus and tropical fruits, some yeast and bitterness. Light bitterness in the mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, hoppy. Another nice new beer from Great Lakes. Im loving these Belgian IPAs.

Une immense surprise pour moi cette bire qui me fut rapporte par Ju-Lo de la LCBO. Merci mon vieux! Ds louverture de la bouteille, une forte odeur de farmhouse envahit la pice. En plus dtre magnifiquement trouble, mousseuse et collante, la bire sent oxtraordinairement bon! Des armes de bl, de houblons, une touche de funk. Cest beaucoup de choses la fois: Belge, Pale Ale, IPA, saison... Trs complexe et intressant. En bouche cest la fois mielleux, frais, amer... Le meilleur de la blonde dabbaye et de la IPA runis dans une bire frache et multidimensionnelle. Une trs belle dcouverte!

Really nice pour... golden, hazy, huge head. Smells slightly yeasty, earthy hops, and herbal. Taste is pretty big, hoppy, bitter, dry, slightly astringent finish, good carbonation, medium bodied, yeast, etc. Its a good one.

Finally rating after several bottles which I enjoyed too much to stop and type. Hazy medium gold with a small white head leaving patchy lace. Nose is juicy citrus and pine with some pear, pepper, light tropical fruit and caramel. Flavour is an excellent balance of light malt sweetness and a big hoppy bitterness with pepper for accent. Mouth is medium with average carbonation and a long dry bitter finish. Would love to see Great Lakes put the #10 on a bunch more tanks and keep cranking out quantity of everything in this series.

Hazy gold, thick fluffy head lots of lacing. Aroma has light Belgian phenolics, some citrus fruit comes in on the end. Sodacracker malt flavor, light bitterness, finish is dry. Hop flavor takes a back seat tot the Belgian phenolics, theres still a touch of the cattiness I dont like in Belgian ipas. Well made just not my favorite style.
