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.

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.

nice beer, looks wise it is deceiving, nice hoppy flavor to start but not much of a hoppy finish at all. Pretty normal in terms of mouth feel. Definitely a Belgian style IPA, I would refer to it as Leffe's younger, but bolder cousin which is a high compliment for an underground beer.

A little hoppy on the front side. Not a hint of an aftertaste. It's a Belgium style IPA and I can tell the difference. Not nearly as piney due to it being a tad bit sweeter but not too sweet. It's a good beer.

Look - great golden Amber color but really lacking head.
Smell - belgium yeast smell with slight slight slight hop and malt scent
Taste - very Similar the the smell but with more hop bitterness to it.
Feel - medium body with a fizzy carbonated crisp feel
Overall - descent Belgian style ipa but could use more hops
