Brews Review 09 // Great Lakes Brewery Limp Puppet


Today I turn my attention to a brewery from the greater Toronto area. The brewery under the lens today is Great Lakes Brewery aka GLB. From personal experience they do high quality beers and I have failed to find one I would not drink again. They also seemingly specialise in awesome IPA's, so much so that they let their brewers run wild in the brewery and have produced a series of beers known as 'Tank Ten'. It is one beer from this series that I shall be reviewing today.

Details

Name: Limp Puppet
Brewery: Great Lakes Brewery
Style: Session IPA
Price: $3.25 CAD
ABV: 3.8%

Commercial Fluff:
"Unfiltered, hazy and dull yellow with a snowy with head. Tropical and juicy hop profile dominates the aroma. White wine/grape must, citrus rind and a freshly bit tangerine. Passion fruit throughout. Light to medium body, more on the light side. Juicy and refreshing with a softer carbonation, which allows hop profile to emanate. Similar to aroma – passion fruit, soft touch of white wine notes and touches of lemon rind. Finishes dry with lingering tropical hop character. Good for hop heads and those looking for a lighter offering."

Own Opinion

Sight: Hazy golden colour with a crisp white head.

Aroma: Tropical citrus all the way! Lemon citrus and Passion fruit smells smack you in the face as you open the can. These tropical flavours stay with you all the way to the end.

Taste: Amazing. A mouth watering, citrus hop taste along with a passion fruit, makes you want more and you can as it is only 3.8%. The tastes stays with you for a while, mouth still watering a good few minutes later.

Would I buy it again? Yes.

Since first trying it, it quickly became the first thing I looked for in the LCBO. Sadly it was only around for the summer. I'm a firm believer in that something is only worth highly rating if you are willing to spend money on it. Which I can safely say I would! I only hope they keep re-releasing this beer to help secure it as a firm favourite of mine. Fingers crossed.

So what do you think of the beer? Have you tried it, do you want to try it? Drop a comment below and let me know. Until next time cheers.
