ANGRY ERIK FJORD CROSSER BELGIAN IPA

On tap at River Of Beer, invigorating Belgian-styled pale ale brings brisk lemon-limed tropical fruiting to honeyed pale malts and moderate citric hop bittering, leaving strong ethyl alcohol astringency at the finish. Juicy mango, honeydew, melon, tangerine and lychee illusions sweetly brighten the zesty lemon overtures.

FLYING DOG TROPICAL BITCH BELGIAN-STYLE IPA

Staying sweet without getting annoyingly cloy, 25th anniversary tropical-fruited medium body contrasts funky Belgian yeast fungi against juicy grapefruit, orange, peach, banana, pineapple, mango and passionfruit wellspring, accruing lingered sharp hop bittering to fend off luxurious citric-perfumed floral bouquet wafting thru sugar-spiced fructose aspect.

CLOWN SHOES BILL VS.THE MOSQUITOS WHITE INDIA PALE ALE

Milky yeast sinew thickens amber copper pour of Belgian white ale/ Americanized IPA hybrid (brewed by mosquito-riddled Minnesotan for Northwest consumption). Sweet Valencia orange tang picks up mild Mosaic hop-oiled lemon twist over dry earthen farmhouse rusticity. Light pine wisp and tart pineapple-grapefruit ripple juice up ripe citric profile.

BRIX CITY BELGIAN IPA

On tap at Poor Henry’s, dryer-than-expected Belgian Pale Ale/ India Pale Ale hybrid leads with bitterly tart lemony grapefruit rind bite and piney hop sharpness. Seasoned hop heads will rejoice at desiccated wood-dried citric pungency, but lighter thirsts may balk at candi-sugared Belgian yeast spicing hastily retreating, causing a slight imbalance towards the dry side.

OTTER CREEK FRESH SLICE WHITE IPA

On tap at Poor Henry’s, ill-defined Belgian IPA tastes more like a citric-dried American pale ale with its parched wood tone and bitter grapefruit rind tartness guarding sweet orange-peeled lemon, clementine and tangerine crisping. Light crystal malting and subtle coriander spicing sweeten backend of sessionable summertime dry body.

RUSHING DUCK WHITE ELEPHANT

On tap at Ambulance, easygoing ultra-dry Belgian Imperial India Pale Ale maintains pleasant citric hop moderation over mild crystal malting and subtle white-peppered herbage. Bitter yellow grapefruit and orange rind sedation contrasts floral sugar-spiced sweetness. Zesty lemon, pineapple and tangerine illusions surface at the serene citric finish. But expectant Belgian yeast influence lacks clarity.

STONE ARBALEST BOURBON BARREL BELGIAN IPA

On tap at Ambulance, uniquely designed crossbow-named hybrid drapes sweet bourbon atop yellow-fruited candy sourness and spice-hopped Belgian yeast. Oaken vanilla influence uplifts bourbon spirit, leaving vodka, vermouth and Chardonnay traces. Tart lemony orange zest ultimately battles back bourbon whir.

SOUTHERN TIER TIER DE GARDE

Tempting ‘tripel crossed with an American IPA’ opens with zesty grapefruit-peeled effervescence gliding easily into lemon-candied clementine, tangerine, pineapple, mango, tangelo and nectarine tang that contrasts musty orange-rotted souring. Black-peppered Belgian ale yeast creates herbal underbelly for sweet-spiced citric snazz.

BUFFALO BAYOU ABRIKOOS

A cornucopia of bittersweet tropical fruits gain affluence above advertised ‘caramelized apricot’ tartness serenading hybridized Belgian IPA. Ancillary lemon-dried mango, kiwi, papaya, grapefruit and peach tones contrast assertive hop-charred ethanol bittering. Herbaceous black-peppered Belgian yeast funk grazes acrid alfalfa, wheat straw and hay backdrop.

FLESK FORCE OF NATURE BELGIAN-STYLE IPA

Imprecise and unconventional moderate-bodied Belgo-American hybrid needs more emphatic Belgian yeast funk, better caramel-spiced sweetness and more specific herbal fruiting. Closer to a helles lager with its wavered biscuit-y cracked graining, cereal oats sugaring and doughy croissant buttering.

BUFFALO BAYOU MEER KOEBEL BELGIAN DOUBLE IPA

Despite bold 9% ABV and hefty 118 IBU hop measure, hybridized Belgian-styled Imperial IPA features mildly embittered lemon-pitted yellow grapefruit tang above lightly pined florality. Gentle clementine, tangerine, lemon meringue, apple and pear illusions vie for ancillary space alongside wafting rose hips, rosebud, lilac and wildflower subtleties. Soft doughy biscuit breading provides delicate bottom.

WEYERBACHER CAMELOPARDALIS

On tap at Copper Mine, off-dry Belgian-styled Imperial IPA’s as interesting as its wildlife-inspired name. Initially, lemony orange-peeled grapefruit bittering crowds the setback piney hop resin and contrasts the sugary caramel malting. Tertiary coconut, banana and marmalade illusions contrast vinous green apple souring. A hint of sweet whiskey emerges.
