16 ounce can. Medium gold pour. Large foamy white head. Yeasty, fruity malt nose. Tart, citrus malt flavor upfront. Hints of pineapple, lemon and sourdough bread. Slightly dry finish has a touch of citrus hoppiness. Refreshing and flavorful.

From notes. Enjoyed this one with the Ann Arbor crew at a tasting at Corbet’s house on November 18. 16 oz can. The pour is a bright golden yellow, relatively clear, with a thick cap of frothy white head that falls to a film with a solid soapy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is really Belgian forward. There is a distinct yeastiness about it with a hint of clove and spiciness. A little bit of dried citrus zest comes through late and joins a hint of piney resin. The flavor is much of the same. The Belgian hugeness up front is surprising. The clove and yeast I can do without, but I do appreciate that the hop resin and light malt tend to cut through that a bit. The mouth feel is lighter bodied and well carbonated with a softer feel and a clean, lingering Belgian yeast and bitter hop balance. This one is better than I thought it would be. 6 4 6 4 14

Pint can. Lemony citrus aroma with notes of spicy Belgian yeast, clove, banana and grapefruit. Pours pale, cloudy golden colored with a huge off white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with lemon and grapefruit citrus hop flavors with notes of clove. Finishes dry with spicy Belgian yeast and a hint of banana flavor. Pretty good Belgian IPA.

Ever so slightly hazy amber and copper coloured body with a nice, three centimetre tall tan head on top. Aroma of grass, cardboard, light tropical fruits and a bit of play-doh and gak (toy). Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and very perfumey hop notes at first with a slightly mellow malt backbone showing some gaps and only a touch of cardboard to carry it through, but more hop notes that show the grassy and very herbal side of things without the typical yeast bite of a ’belgian ipa’. Aftertaste shows a good deal of hop bitterness, but no real malt backbone and no depth or complexity from the malty side of things. Overall, a decent beer that shows some nice hoppy flavours, absolutely nothing from the yeast strain and only a touch of the malt for support and complexity/balance, this was supported by the hops, but let down by everything else. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from Total Beverage in Thornton, Colorado on 04-June-2017 for US$3,50 sampled at home in Washington on 06-August-2017.

De la cervecería Pipeworks(U. S. A.) esta Belgian IPA, en concreto es una American IPA con levadura belga que generalmente aporta notas y sabores especiados, promueve una mejor retención de espuma dándole un toque diferente a una típica American IPA o a la inversa con una Belgian Pale Ale, Tripel o Belgian Golden Strong Ale, esta receta contiene 6.2% ABV. En apariencia es una cerveza con amplia corona de espuma blanquecina de excelente retención dejando encaje en las paredes del vaso, mediana actividad de carbonatación, color pajizo a amarillo intenso, turbiedad considerable, cuerpo mediano. En nariz es cítrica de inicio desarrollando aromas a toronja, naranja, frutas de carozo como mango, ligeras notas de plátano y de carácter herbal, un poco de dulzor, en general predomina el carácter American IPA. Ya en paladar posee un amargor de ligero a medio, bien balanceada con poco dulzor, se aprecian sabores a toronja, naranja, piña, plátano, ligeramente herbal, se impone totalmente el carácter American IPA solo los esteres a plátano están presentes de la levadura belga, retrogusto a naranja y herbal, final semi seco, buena interpretación aunque en expectativas carezca de carácter belga pero asi suele pasar en la mayoría de los casos.
