Nose is heavy on the tripel, very yeasty, bubblegum, banana, apricot, a bit of lemon. Appearance is that brilliant glowing orange with thick head, thick retention, small bubbles. Magnificent looking. Silky smooth, more bubble gum in the palate, dry, funky palate. The palate does marry the styles nicely. I might put a few bottles of this away. Very nice.

On tap at bōl in Vail. Pour is hazy orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Yeasty, light banana, some citrus, peppery, herbal, some coriander and basil in the aroma. Taste is musty, belgian yeast, herbal, some biscuit, straw, white pepper, and herbs with a slightly spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent, but it seems muddled. Is it a belgian DIPA, a Tripel, or and IPA?

Garrold (2213) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, pale amber. Thin, dense, lasting, sticky, white head. Bready, toasty, Belgian yeast shizzle, first and foremost. Lemon hop. Peachy hop. Some stone fruit in there, too. Taste is fruit salad sweet. Turns yeasty dry. Pithy, oily bitter at the end. Juicy, oily, easy drinking palate. Finishes long, juicy, fusty, pithy bitter. Lip coating sweetness lingers. Daft easy to drink. Fusty, fruity, and lovely.

From Tap. dark golden with an airy white head. nose: malty, bacon, yeast, citrus, hoppy, sugar, vegetables. not sure what to make of this. taste: malt, yeast, hops, alcohol strength, bit funky. MF: peppery in the finish, due to alcohol, complex finish. full body. bitter sweet. sweetness of a triple, bitterness of an IPA. nice brew, bit strange. definitiely not the next IPA in town. this beer needs some time to get on to you ...
