BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Bottle from Kroger.

A light copper with s dense, white head that falls off to a ring rapidly, this looks decent. On the nose, this is fresh and hoppy with a pronounced Belgian yeast character, bubblegum and clove. Fresh citrus, some pine are present but really, this is dominated by the yeast. The palate opens mildly bitter and resiny and very yeasty. Orange, grapefruit, orange peel are present with a pleasant hop oil character. The mid palate is all bubblegum and Belgian yeast. Malt character is minimal with just a little honey that works nicely with the yeast. Bitter on the finish with a nice hop oil character, this is a good Belgian IPA, if that's your thing( not quite mine, though) still, I do have to admit there aren't any major flaws here.

I am having this now in the Dallas airport and maybe it's the coffee I drank before-hand but it feels perfect on my mouth. I prefer spice and Belgian style IPAs so I could be partial.. But for some reason it feels so good right now. Nice weight to it and bubbly like I'm drinking at a pub across the pond.

poured from a bottle that wasnt the freshest, about 2.5 months old so maybe not at its best but definitely strong spicy belgian yeast flavor with a bit of hop bitterness
