Hey guys, sorry I have taken so long to post the tasting notes from my silver medal win last fall. I have typed them up below.

I just rebrewed this beer to submit to a local brewery for consideration in the GABF pro-am. If they pick my beer from a field of six or sever other local brewers we would brew a commercial-size batch and submit that to the competition.

Wish me luck!


Tasting Notes from The Dominion Cup 2011:
Category: 16E
Sub-category: Belgian Specialty
Final assigned score: 37/50

Aroma: 8/10
Strong hop aroma, bit piney some citrus, some underlying biscuit notes, very subdued. Touch of tartness. Low spice and esters - some lemon might be there. Hops are very American in style.

Appearance: 3/3
Copper. Clear. Thick, off-white, persistent head.

Flavor: 15/20
Flavor has more Belgian notes that compliment the Belgian quality nicely. Spicey and fruity with hop flavor in balance. Malt is toasty and biscuity; clove and pine, grapefruit citrus come together well. Not overdone. Sugars are light - might have helped dry it out. Finishes dry and hoppy.

Mouthfeel: 3/5
Medium body - could be thinner especially if candi sugars played a role. Creamy but not cloying. Smooth.

Overall Impression: 8/10
Very nice Belgian IPA with enough hops but not overdone. Good balance. Nice overall.

I don't quite have the equipment yet for an all-grain batch. Can I get some help with making this partial-grain?
