22 oz bottle pours a cloudy orange.amber color with a slight white head and some lacing. Smells like an IIPA. Tastes like an IIPA. Aroma is full of cararmel malts and floral hops, without the Belgian yeast I was expecting. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky, body is medium, and carbonation is average or below. Taste is initially sweet until the ho[s kick in for a quick finish which is drier. Alcohol is well hidden. A very good beer no matter how you classify it.

UXO (145) - CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours a clear copper with two fingers of fluffy off-white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim with moderate spotty lacing. Nose is pine resiny hops, pineapple, orange, apricot, caramel malt. Taste starts moderately sweet, then fruity, finishing citrusy and bitter. Mouth feel is medium- to heavy-bodied and chewy, with moderate carbonation and warming. Not a tripel style at all, more of an double/imperial IPA: when I think Belgian tripel, I think lighter hop varieties, floral, banana or bubblegum, clove phenols, peppery spice. This has pretty much none of those, and instead is pine resin, tropical fruit, and sweet malt. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fine DIPA, but I don’t see how it’s in any way a tripel. A big beer, albeit not as heavy as might be expected from the ABV. Malt is definitely present, but not overly emphatic, playing a nicely supporting role. A big beer, albeit not as heavy as might be expected from the ABV. But it’s not a tripel.

steelhead3686 (228) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Pours a hazy orange/gold with a medium white head. Citrus hops with a hint of toasty almost roast malts. Medium to heavy bitter with medium sweetness. Solid medium body with a creamy texture. The finish is bitter and sticks around for a bit. This is good beer and I would certainly buy one or two at a bar.

Keg @ Brewdog Sheffield. Never described a beer as delectable before. This is delectable. Orange marmalade, spice, lemon rind and strong resinous alcohol flavours. Very nice.
