4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden body with a generous white head. Opens up with aromas of melon, lime, grass and farmyard. A carbonated mouthfeel with an initial bitterness that is followed by flavors of grass and citrus backed up by a slight toast character. Finishes off with a lingering hop bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep gold - vigorous head (aged bottle pour). Aroma is sweet and sour, yeasty, bready, light fruits - interesting, but good as I got into it. Flavor is vinous, white-wine like, light tropical fruit, yeast, esters, somewhat sour. Palate is effervescent and lively. Took me a bit to warm up to this one, but I would say it was a good pour overall!

Held this bottle for awhile and then shared with deadCATAtlanta while cleaning my new (to me) beer fridge. Pours a lovely hazy gold with ample white head. Scent is delicious mix of spice and sugar. Flavors are sweet and earthy. Body is medium and lively. Good beer. Glad I had the opportunity to try. Bottle - Somewhere in NYC

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.75l bottle from Cracked Kettle. This was actually one of the first beers I bought from Cracked Kettle, so have been saving this for a while. It pours a lovely looking glowing cloudy honey-golden body with a big heavy lacing off-white head. Smells a little bit of cellar and Belgian yeast. Itís also somewhat zesty on the nose, and there are clear notes of oxidation. It has a average carbonation level and a kinda gliding and oily mouthfeel. In the taste I get lots of really ripe fruits, some yeasty tones, canned pears and light candy sugar. The twist here is that has a slight acidity in between the other flavors. Almost like sour raspberries mixed with blue plums in a way. Makes it more interesting, but I have to admit that itís not a masterpiece of a tripel this, but that being said, it kinda grows on you after a while in the glass. Some subtle traces of alcohol, and I have to say subtle because the fact that itís a 10 percent to ABV beer is hard to notice. Itís leaving the mouth in a state that I would describe as drying and longing for more - and thatís undoubtedly a good thing! 10.04.2013

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Gregís dump, courtesy of BlackIPA. Thanks! Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Kind of bready, oxidized, lightly spicy hoppy, a touch citrusy, pale malty aroma. Pretty strong. Cardboard, paper, chewy malty, light toast, mild banana, lemon, a touch spicy flavor. Probably too old and though high boost is offered, I donít even

Deep golden color, nice frothy chalk white head. The nose is fairly malty with bready notes and pears. Full bodied, very smooth and alcohol is well hidden. Although well made, the beer doesnít show spectacular depth, but is ok. Decent bready finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle thanks to blklab2007. Pours hazy golden orange color with a large, white head that fades slowly and never completely goes away. Great lacing too, love the appearance. Aroma is very floral and spicy with some citrus, yeast, honey, pineapple, and clove. Taste is very spicy at first with lots of coriander, clove, yeast, and black pepper. Finishes rather fruity and floral. Citrus fruit and pineapple mostly. Not much sweetness or bitterness really. Mouthfeel is nice. Lots of carbonation but remains very soft. A little oiliness which I enjoy. This is more complex than most tripels, probably due to the dry hopping. Yum.

Big orange flavor right up front. Hints of grapefruit right behind that. On tap is was more clean. The bottle has wonderful notes produced by the yeast. This is a Belgian IPA and a damn fine one. The hops are there throughout and wonderful.
