Pours a cloudy golden color with a bit if a foamy head after an aggresr pour. The aroma has that sweet candied fruit and Belgian yeast at the forefront with a slight hint of piney hops in the background. Tast has both styles co-mingling with the Belgian tripel at the front and finishing with the slightly piney astringent finish.

Skvader (114) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2014
Aroma has marzipan and amaretto notes reminiscent of a British barley wine. sweet flavour with a discrete hop bitterness. Some sherry similarities in flavour. Does not feel like an IPA at all despite the description.

patricks110 (1713) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
An interesting American take on a Belgian strong ale. Pours a dark burgundy with a light beige head. The nose is lightly toasted, caramel, nuts and mild toffee. A nice spice blend of cloves, coriander and green peppers. The middle has no sweetness, no hops to find and a bit of fruit. The finish has an overbearing Belgian yeast and estery profile with a boozy emphasis and light spiced notes. Very drinkable and palatable. Overall, a good brew.

Mindwarp (73) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Pours a very clear dark amber with very little foam. Strong sweet aroma.. Strong spicy taste which showed up once it warmed up a bit. Spice and dark fruit it what I’m getting, unique taste. I keep letting it warm up now I think I’m getting a clove taste in the back ground, no bitterness or sweetness. Overall I like this beer but I don’t think I would like to drink a lot of it.

commonmac (385) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Tap at Happy Gnome. Bowling pin style glass. Wheelhouse orange color with a slight haze. Lacing is impressive. Aroma has mostly citrus and yeast. Hop comes out to play too. Taste is also citrus at the onset and finish. Almost straddles the line of a double IPA and a Belgian tripel. Alcohol well hidden. Officially, the first muffin top I would welcome in a warm embrace.

ClubGonzo (4175) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange body with a small white head. Nose is strong yeasty tones, floral citrus hints, resin, hints of syrup and cinnamon. Taste is cinnamon, floral honey tones, grains, hints of syrup, pine and citrus. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Pretty decent, but not fantastic.

Pours a cloudy dull amber. Foam head sticks to the glass. Cirtrus and light grapefruit aroma. Smooth and bodied mouthfeel. Taste is citrus into pine with a flare of grapefruit. Slight bubblegum aftertaste

Bottle. Poured a hazy dark golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was yeast, light sweet fruits, with some notes of caramel and toffee. Flavor was malts, light spice notes, some candi notes. Alcohol flushes the cheeks and warms the face pretty quickly.
