Frau Gruber Craft Brewing
American IPA / 4.50% ABV

4.06/5  rDev -0.5% | Score: 4.08
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy pale amber, peach coloration with a medium, fizzy head. Smell is lovely mixture of tropical and lighter citrus notes: mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, tangerine, with a light grassiness. Taste follows the nose, although the citrus is a little more dominant on the tongue than in the nose, with bright, zesty notes of grapefruit and tangerine, but also lighter tropical notes of mango and passion fruit. There is also some light biscuity malt and a mild, grassy dankness to this. Finishes with a light bitterness, medium hop burn and some zesty citrus lingering in the aftertaste. Gassy mouthfeel with a medium body and very lively carbonation. Very nice Session NEIPA that is quite juicy and zesty for the ABV, with a surprisngly full body, but perhaps a little overcarbonated.

Purchased at Aldi's in Oklahoma City. Poured from a 12 oz. glass bottle into a glass.

Big off-white fluffy head on top of a clear dark amber liquid. Decent aroma. Flavor is heavy on the malt, with some hops and some very subtle spices. Some toasty and nutty notes.

I think this is intended to be a clone of a Fat Tire, and I think they have succeeded in this mission. Quite good for the price ($6.49/six pack)

Thanks to Corey for the beer!

Beautiful copper orange body, clear but with a slight haze. Nice one finger white head that leaves some spotty, runny lace and a broken ring around the glass.
Huge waft of caramel sweetness, lighter in toasted malts and the slightest hint of medicinal hops.
Quite an odd progression with the taste of this beer. Initially it is very thin up front until a burst of caramel and apple skin shows up and blend seamlessly in to a very pleasant medicinal and spicy hop finish.
The body is on the lighter side of medium with medium carbonation. Very smooth mouth feel and light.

Enjoy by 10.31.18 -

22 oz. bottle:

Pours amber to copper with a creamy lasting white head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is robust - pine and grapefruit - some alcohol.

The taste is of pine/resin with grapefruit. A sweet touch with spicy alcohol comes through. Rounded bitterness in the finish. Alcohol shows but doesn't overwhelm.

It has a rich, full body with a silky smoothness despite alcohol bite.

Another winner from Stone! A big DIPA - big on hops and malt that interplay with each other well. Nice!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a cloudy deep amber coloration with a large, foamy, stable head and some floaters on final pour. Smells of doughy malt, lots of wheat and straw and just the merest hint of tropical fruit. Taste is dominated by doughy, slightly grainy wheat malt and straw with just a hint of estery, herbaceous spice and mango. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some light, herbaceous spice lingering in the aftertaste. Pillowy, effervescent mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. This certainly is a modern, but quite well done Zwickl, with a great balance of doughy malt, light tropical hops and herbaceous, spicy bitterness. Mouthfeel is particularly noteable, being quite fluffy and evervescent.

This one has a lot of fruity (soured orchard fruits, some citrus) flavor with a good malty backbone and it is also moderately and nicely tart/sour, but it is a little too sticky and sweet on the finish for me to want more than one. You get a little bit of the wild yeast funkiness, but it isn't too big a presence.

16 ounce bottle, Dec 14 2017 stamped on the bottle which I assume is the bottled on date. It's annoying when companies use black ink to date stamp a bottle, especially when it's a porter or stout because you can't read the date very well (if at all) until after you pour the beer out of the bottle. Served in a chalice, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, bergamot/Earl Grey tea, coffee, vanilla, and some graininess. For the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some cream and bittersweet chocolate flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and creamy with a good amount of carbonation. Wish I would have been able to drink this one fresher, but I still thought this was a good overall brew. Worth a try if you like porters and stouts, and also for people who like Earl Grey tea. I'd like to try this one again! $3.99 a bottle.

6pack bought at Liquor Shed, $17.12. I see a stamped date of August 11th 2018.

It pours dark red with an inch of off white foam, lots of sticky lacing.

I get notes of Bourbon, brown sugar, aggressive hop bitterness, caramel malt in the smell.

The hoppiness and Bourbon are battling for palate dominance in the taste. Brown sugar and caramel add some sweetness. Brown sugar tastes burnt at various times during the session. The alcohol is hidden pretty well.

Mouthfeel is good.

I like it but I prefer the regular Arrogant Bastard.
