Pours to a thick white head and gold color - light for style. Aroma is a pleasant presentation of citrus and grassy hops. Flavor is what one would expect from a low-alcohol AIPA: Strong, citrusy hops and a malt backbone. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is appropriate. Overall, this was a pretty good show given the restrictions. Not too shabby!

Fresh growler from Belle Isle restaurant. Plan on keeping to refill with Oatmeal Stout.

16oz -> Fuller's Pint

A ~ Pretty remarkable. Dark bronze with barely any head, but who cares.

S ~ Heavy Grapefruit and Barley, mostly. Slight lemon.

T ~ Caramel malt, Biscuits, Lemon Peel, Grapefruit

M ~ Pretty thin at first, but the hop oils coat the throat like a good IPA, so that's pretty excellent.

D ~ Favorite of Belle Isle's brews, nice to see they pulled off the 4.00 IPA (3.20 beer is the law in cans/bottles, but 4.00 is the law in brewpubs)

Great for this time of year, can be consumed in large volume without worry.

Here we go for no. 4 of 5 for Belle Isle.

A - High points for appearance. A nice copper colored beer, with some continued carbonation. And super strong cotton candy lacing with spider man action webbing.

S - Sour-sweet. Like a sweet tart. Some yeasty lemon flavors. Sadly the malt was hard to find.

T - Hops, bitterness. It's hard to describe but I can easily say that the balance is way off. It's not an IPA hop bitterness but more like an unwashed leaf aftertaste with some lemon peel.

M - Watery, poor, a bit sleek.

D - Nothing worth comment. The look of the beer got my hopes up somewhat but this was another disappointment. This sadly is the kind of beer that needs to be mixed with something else to improve it's flavor.

Clear golden brew with white head that leaves lots of Belgian lace on the glass. The aroma is a mix of hops and malt but the taste is dominated by the hops (as you would expect from the style).

The hop profile is kinda different but tasty (with a really nice and indescribable aftertaste). It reminds me of some of the fresh hop-laden beers of the Pacific Northwest, sorta a less aggressive version of Bridgeport's Hop Harvest.

The mouthfeel has a good bit of carbonation and a bit of prickliness on the tongue from both the hops and the bubbles.

Definitely a nice change of pace, but wouldn't consider it a good session beer. I sometimes dig really hoppy beers but I think I would have liked a bit more malty body to match the hops.
