COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly "Trebuchet".
Somewhere there is a Belgian Monk whos head is spinning. A Belgian brewer would never put this much hop into a beer. However, we are not Belgian are we? We can do whatever we want. This is an unconventional beer. Belgian candy sugar, classic Belgian yeast, and a boat load of hops, plus some dry hopping in top of that. A very unique take on a Double IPA that will make it stand out in a crowd.

brokensail (10789) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Can @ Richards Tasting. Copper colored pour with a white head. Fruity, sweet aroma of grape, peach, and apple. Lots of caramel and brown sugar. Light floral hops and some mild citrus. Very sweet on the palate. Overly so, in fact. Bubblegum, caramel, and brown sugar. Ripe peach and white grape juice. Light hop bitterness along with some flowers and orange peel. Not good as a double IPA, but as a sweet Belgian beer, not bad.

Petkus331 (247) - Redford, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2013
A nice hoppy floral aroma of flowers and mild grapefruit. A very brown sugar flavor followed by a balancing grapefruit bitterness and sweet belgian yeast esters. A nice palate that is fizzy but not syrupy. Overall, a great beer.

11/23/13. 16oz can thanks to rdixon77! Clear golden pour with a nice khaki head and great lacing. Light ester on the aroma, a hint of Belgian spice, subtle, lots of fruitiness and some dank pine and resin. Nice flavor, good bitterness, a subtle hint of Belgian with plenty of fruitiness, fresh hop character, and some pine. Tasty.

Gold pour with nice white lacing. Big citrus (lemon line) in the nose. Taste was a bit less floral, but still nice balanced malts, candy sweetness, and slight lingering bitter. Don't taste much if the Belgian yeast, but there is a hint. Nicely carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Super tasty.

BVs masterpiece. Deep red-gold. No head. The perfect balance of dry hops and Belgian yeast flavor of bananas, dark fruit, etc.
