This is really tasty, but far away from a Belgian Tripel style beer according to me. For me its a mix of Barley Wine and a typical hoppy American IPA. I can hardly find the yeasty tones i was expecting. As a beer its great, but its not what they say it is, but the grade is for the beer and not the label.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange-amber color with a nice frothy head that fades normally and leaves nice webbing. Aroma is a cool balance of Belgian bubblegum and banana with citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is more Belgian dominant than the aroma. Bubblegum and banana overpower and there are just hints of citrus fruit. Candi sugar sweetness up front and a moderate bitterness. Medium body. Mouthfeel is sticky and dry. Decent Belgian IPA but wish the Belgian aspects were more subtle. And it’s a bit overpriced I think.
