BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Lakewood Brewing Company
Texas, United States

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
We're no monks, but our Belgian-style IPA gives a tip of the hat to our divine brethren. Brewed with rich malt, noble hops, Trappist yeast and a kick of coriander, this is one complex beer. Rather than make a beer that's more of a dare to drink than a pleasure, balance was the priority here. We wanted a beer for "hop heads" and novices alike. Hop Trapp pours with a refined bitter backbone, floral hoppy notes and a decidedly Belgian finish. This brew is worthy of some serious contemplation.

A: It pours with a slight head and a nice deep copper color.
S: Some citrus and Grain on the front end but not a big fan of the back end interpretation that marks it as a 'belgium' to me
T: Grain, yeast and some hops thrown in to freshen the overall flavor up. Some citrus but not much that my palate could pick-up.
M: This was the sinking point for me with an medium body that really did not sit well with me.
O: While I love the beer that have been coming out of Lakewood recently I was really looking for more of a predominant hop flavor (at 54 ibu I figured it might be there).

Might be the bar I had it at, but the mouthfeel was rough. Attempts to be hoppy, but there is a poor malt balance. Amber color looks appetizing, but once you smell/taste, this beer leaves something to be desired.

Clear copper pour with a one-finger off-white head. Light aroma of floral hops, wet fruit and spice. Taste has a strong piney and earthy bitterness upfront backed by a lot of bready malt. Medium bodied with additional flavors of light citrus and yeast. Finishes dry with a lingering earthy bitterness.
