Know your brewer: I get inspired. A lot of time itís by friends and a lot of other times itís by beer. Some conversations, some hops, and a gratitude for what some righteous monks across the mighty Atlantic have been up to for decades. Through that comes this: a classic Trappist yeast playing ball with an aromatic Double IPA. "Tripel-Double." No easy buckets!

Had great good aroma, had high hopes. Hoppy first taste, then all goes to hell from there. Aftertaste lingers and is not good. Clean but bland taste to start with but that aftertaste is overwhelming... and not in a good way.

DuffMan (6156) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle, shared with my in-laws. Hazy medium gold body, thick persistent white head. Sweet honeyish malts, vaguely spicy yeast character, peppery bitter finish. Not bad, not great either.

This was good but thatís all. The flavor had the Belgian spiciness to it, but the hops werenít really there or meshing well. A bit disappointing.

Light beautiful color from a bottle. Thin head, hoppy double Belgian yeasty beer. Flavorful, hoppy and very drinkable.

BMMillsy (1146) - Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a pretty clear orange with small fluffy head. Smell has some belgian yeast funk, a bit of orange zest. Crisp aroma. Flavor a bit muddled. Heavy lemon zest and serious yeast funk. Solid bitter bite with a sweet finish. Fruit is very present and this went very well with some guacamole believe it or not. Medium light mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation.

Holy (834) - GERMANY - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle shared somewhere in the middle of Florida... Slight "Belgian" taste in the initial sip, but unbalanced endgame...

unclemattie (4034) - Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
22oz bottle. Orange amber color, white head with very large bubbles. Aroma of Belgian yeast & attic. Some straw, some fruit. Soft, smooth texture. Flavor of apricots, straw, some spicy esters, bitter hops. Very dry. Overall, it has a honey flavor finish with an earthy character. (3467)

maxwelldeux (3069) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light amber color with a slight head. Interesting hoppiness to it that i didnít expect. Slight sweetness to it to cut the bitterness of the hops. Interesting beer.

BeerandBlues2 (9077) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy dark gold to orange with a medium, fizzy white head, medium to short retention with good lacing. Aroma is tropical fruity esters, biscuit and straw malt, citrus and earthy-spicy hops with Belgian yeast spices. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with a supporting malt backbone, fruity esters and spices and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2012
The aroma is slightly funky yeast, with hops and malt. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a decent beer but not great.
