BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Michigan, United States
kbrewery.com

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.25%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A very hoppy citrus nose leads this beer, with low malt and high hops in flavor. The Belgian yeast leaves the palate creamy instead of dry. This is an awe-some beer for Belgian and hop fans alike.

Poured into a snifter it has a a red body with a 1 and a half inch thick head. Smell of bready malt, citrus, earth, orange, and grass. Taste is citrus, orange, apricot, some belgian esters, grass, and earth. Mouth feel is moderate with a crisp moderate to full body. A interesting ale, not bad but not great.

2012 bottle. Have had it for about 1.5 years, thanks Dan. Beer seems close to flat when opening, very little "pop". Apperance is ruby red, no head, the stillness on top tells me it is indeed flat. Nose is sunscreen (in a good way), sweet, malty. Taste is yeast up front (I'll attribute the "sunscreen" smell to the yeast), kind of tangy & slight citrus bitterness on the sides, more bitterness going down with yeast flavors. Nice. Mouthfeel is medium, but very flat. Doesn't seem to be properly carbed, or the seal was not intact. Overall the flatness really hurt my initial impression, but as it warmed I noticed that less and the tastiness took over.
