pours golden. hints of fruit. not as hoppy as I expected. I wuldn’t classify this as an IPA, but I just stated drinking belgians so I will have to try some that are comparable and re-rate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light gold with a very large, lasting head. I did not like this beer, although I can understand people who do. Not enough hops to have "IPA" in the title. Not for me.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 Pours a hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is yeast and wheat with a little malt and hops. The taste is very yeasty, with a sweet wheat-hoppy finish. This is a weird beer, but one to try.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
75 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a slowly collapsing yet quite stable head. Off-white. Aroma is fantastic, smooth and mellow yeasty, mild spiced and caramel malt in a classic and almost supurb mix. In addition the aroma hops of amarillo, tomahawk and saaz join in giving a great twist to this. Flavour is dense spiced mixed with a nice mellow mix of yeast and caramel malt. Again the oily hops work quite well with this mix providing even more strength to the classic triple flavour. This is so smooth and so flavourful a triple - fantastic. Only downside - a vague bit too strong flavoured perhaps.
