3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Bottled. Pours hazy golden with a huge off-white head, leaving a fair lacing. Nose of citrus, orange, caramel, yeast and alcohol notes. Sweet flavor with distinct hops and also a nice malt backbone, it ends up dry and solid bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. A interesting and enjoyable Belgian style IPA. ★★★★

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brewtopia. Opaque golden orange with white head and lotsa lace. Tangerine orange pineapple mango floral aroma. Sweet tangerine mango with some breadiness and orange citrus finish with some spicy bitterness. Medium full creamy wheaty (?) body. Nice soft carbo. Wicked fucking delicious. Might even be better without the orange peel. Not sure that’s necessary.

Bomber shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours golden brown with a big off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, citrus. Flavor is caramel, banana, clove. Grapefruit and orange citrus in the finish. I usually don’t care for hoppy Belgians, but this is decent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big bottle to little snifter. Cloudy honey in the glass. Stiff bubbly head. Orange and coriander on the nose. Nice orange citrus carried through to a malty dry finish. Bright and boozy enough to warm my cockles.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a snifter.
3.25 A: Murky copper color. Two fingers of off-white creamy/frothy head. Retention is good and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.0 S: Quite sugary. Cake frosting, peach, lemon. Lots of citrusy and grassy hoppiness. Yeasty breadiness, banana chips, and something quite distinct that my mind can’t identify right now - something like a persimmon. Also a touch of vegetal aroma.
3.0 T: The taste has no real focus. It’s moderately bitter and the predominant flavor is yeastiness. There’s peach, lemon, and banana fruitiness, but there’s also a lack of tripel spiciness. Less sugary than nose, but still there. Bready and biscuity.
3.0 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Chewy, but lacking spritziness or creaminess, which is what I like in the style.
2.75 D: Eh, it’s okay, but it doesn’t work well as either an IPA or a tripel.
