COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Glaucus is the mythological existence of a being, both man and fish, a deity amongst mere mortals. The only beer fitting of such a name marries bold and spicy Belgian yeasy with bright citric American hops in a way even the gods would adore. Savor this golden beverage that can calm even the harshest seas.

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.

No punch for an IPA. It’s drinkable but forgettable. Not a lot of depth. Where’s the flavor? Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 67

16 oz. can pours a hazy golden color with a mid-size tight white head that leaves rings of lacing. Nose has lots of tropical fruits. Aroma is the same, with slightly dank grassy hops and resin and a touch of Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet and fruity at first, with a long bitter finish. Body is medium with lively carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Easily drinkable, and not as complex as the 8% G;aucus they used to make. This one reminds me of quite a few top competitors (including Pipeworks’ Lizard King) in this crowded field. Well done

Fukito (1064) - Santiago, CHILE - MAR 17, 2017
Hazy rather pale golden with orange hues and a medium, creamy white head. Aroma is spicy with some lemony notes. Flavor is same spicyness with strong lemon, almost lemon peel and a touch of vanilla and pepper. Nice, gentle bitter aftertaste with citrus notes. Medium palate, velvety and creamy. Very refreshing.
