This deep golden ale possess an aromatic nose with floral and fruity notes. Its flavors are a blend of warm, soft biscuity malts followed by a complex, clean finish. With this ale, we aimed to create an easy drinking, one-of-a-kind IPA that leaves you wanting more.

Travelin’ Man is homage to Del’s lifetime of traveling. From Colombia to Kenya and everywhere in between, Del experienced the world in ways few others ever will, and we are forever grateful for his stories. We hope to inspire you to go out and make your own adventures.

This beer pours to an orange/tan color with a good deal of foaming action and a cloudy body. The foam does eventually settle down and it emits floral, pine, toasted malt, and citrus fragrances.

This beer has a taste that emphasizes flavors of pine, caramel, citrus, some sugar, and some wood/earthiness. Some banana, yeast, and spice follow and the complexity doesn’t quit from beginning to end. It’s a conglomerate of flavors and many who sample will notice taste sensations that others will not recognize.

Adelbert’s specializes in Belgian- style ales and this one is certainly an interesting example. Its flavor profile is like that of a Belgian dubble combined with an American India Pale Ale and it’s quite interesting. The full- bodied taste and candy- like qualities mean it’s not the type of beer I would drink regularly, but it does have many things going for it and it is definitely a beer I recommend.

Appearance:
This is a dark earth color, very cloudy and lightens up just a bit towards the bottom of the glass. There’s plenty of carbonation and it’s topped off with a nice thick light tan head
Smell:
It’s rather light on the aroma, mild citrus and grapefruit zest, lemon grass and mils spiciness can all be detected.
Taste:
The hops are great, very prominent but not over powering. The hops become slightly less prominent as you swallow and the bitterness becomes mildly tart. It is sweeter the more it warms up.
Mouthfeel:
Light to medium bodied with lots of carbonation.
Overall:
Very good, not too over powering on the hops and the alcohol is pretty well hidden.
