3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wasn’t sure what to expect when I bought this. Never had a tripel belgium ipa but bought it from a local craft store. Aroma left something to be desired. Taste was more ipa than I thought was hoping for more of a belgium tripel taste. But I like ipa’s to so it’s fine with me. The appearance is what impressed me the most. So much yeast floating around and gathering at the bottom of my glass. The aftertaste is equal to any quality ipa. Very good beer. Time to finish the rest.

650 ml bottle. Hazy orange with white head. Smell is grapefruit bitter with lemon zest and sweet spicy Belgian yeast. Taste is bitter grapefruit with sweet tropical fruit, zest and spices. Dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation. This is much like a double IPA, but with some Belgian yeast and spices.

22 oz bomber poured into tulip. Very yeasty and alcohol aroma. Minimal head on it. Tastes very yeasty and heavy alcohol prescence. Good, but wouldn’t do a bomber solo again probably.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
