This is an amazing beer. Hop God is a very appropriate name since it is worthy of the gods. This is a beer from the brewery that is less than 3 years old. The beer they are producing is fantastic.
Smells of Pine forest, Citrus fruits, earth, Yeast and some banana and a bit o spice. Pours a very deep but bright gold with a great white thick head that last the whole time you drink your beer. Which is not long because it is so good. Almost full body with ample carbonation and a very crisp but smooth finish. Flavor is wonderful. One of the best IPA and the best Belgium style IPA I have ever had. Just full of hoppy goodness. Pne, Citrus, Spice, some sweetness but a great hop punch at the front and the end.. Amazingly Balanced and wickedly delicious that hides the 9.2% well...I will drink this again very soon.

Total surprise! Is there a soft IPA? This is it! Subtle fruit, boozy, but very drinkable! Great, well crafted brew!

Clear golden orange in color... Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus hops... Flavor is candi sugar, citrus melded with citrus hops and lingering bitter finish.... Quite good actually

Draft freebie over at Henry to the J .. Vibrant gold yellow .. Foam was massive .. Belgian yeast and medicinal notes .. Boozy and a bit rough, but it was different .. . . I have a fat head.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 Bottle/Fest.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Citrus, bubblegum, wheat, slightly bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, yeasty finish.
O- Meh, itís certainly like no other tripel Iíve had and thatís not the best thing. Definitly more an IPA to me yet tons of bubblegum like a hefe.

On tap at 2015 GTMW, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head, the aroma has a good amount of hops and citrus mixed in with some belgian yeast and spice at the same time, the flavor has a hoppy front end with a lot of vanilla and fruit and spice at the same time, really interesting.

On tap at GTMW 2011, poursa clear orange with a decent amount of fruit, aroma is of citrus and pine, the flavor is pretty boring actually with some hops coming through, meh.

Absolutely splendid. Combines the best attributes of both styles. Think an exceptional IPA with Belgian yeast. This is that.

Stunning and wonderful. Solid triple, perhaps a little more sweet and less carbonated than the standard. But done perfectly well. The barrel aging adds a complexity. This is a very very good beer.
