Share This Review

Apostate is a Belgian IPA collaboratively brewed by Due South Brewing Co. and Barrel of Monks Brewing. For the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a can.

Appearance

The IPA pours a hazy rust color and is topped by a thick cap of soapy off-white foam. The head stands tall—almost interminably—before its slow reduction leaves behind small patches of lacing.

Aroma

The aroma is faint and consists of piney and herbal hops backed by bready malt.

Flavor

The aroma is slight but a punch of piney hops kicks off the flavor. Its hoppy bite is backed by bready malt and funky Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel

The feel is relatively smooth with a medium body and less-than-moderate carbonation.

Overall

This Belgian IPA presents well but the aroma could be stronger and its feel could use more pep. Hops are the star of this brew but there is a nice balancing malt presence. The Apostate isn’t perfect, but it’s an enjoyable brew nonetheless.
