Looks more IPA than tripel - rusty orange with a big white head and lacing. US hops lead the way too with citrus and tropical fruit, with the Belgian yeast sitting just behind. The orange peel lends a subtle edge, while the cinnamon appears towards the end, and lingers once everything else has faded. Touch of spice too, and some toffee malt. Not quite sure of the balance, but it has some interesting depths.

This is very good! Normally tripels are just too sweet for me, but the Orange cuts right through the sweetness. It has a great bread, yeast and citrus aroma, with a touch of spice on the finish.
