3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden. Rich frothy creamy head, lots of lace. Strong spicey fruit and pine aroma, clove, citrus, grapefruit, fruit must, subtle complex fruit combo. Buttery caramel malts underneath. Taste is foamy full body, acidic carbonic twang bite, grassy pine, alcohol heat, dry,dry finish lots of grassy pine in finish, grapefruit. Some sweetness. Not bad for a mixed style I don’t go for.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark golden color with a taller beige head. Nice lace. Dried flowers, light candi, cookie dough, and hints of resin in the aromas. Hints of alcohol hit the nose at it sets and gives it an overly sweet scent. Quite heavy and a bit oily in feel. Nearly too chewy for a tripel, but just noticed the label, mix if imperial pale ale and tripel, so I guess we might be about right. Quite sweet with a light fruit background of raisins and melon. Plenty of hops bring the resin flavors into play. Some pine and light grapefruit as well. Alcohol is well hidden. Finish is lightly fruity and actually has a bit of grain, malt and dried flowers. Linger is of light fruit and dried pale malt. Interesting but not lacks the finesse of a fine tripel and has the heaviness of a strong pale ale. 2/10

Huge foamy head. Nice dirty hop smell. Yeasty taste of the bat then a peppery hop end. Thin and dry with a gritty mouth feel. I like this beer BECAUSE of its flaws!

The hoppy Belgian thing has yet to impress me and this is no exception. Something about the yeast and hops just don’t blend together in a pleasant way for me.

pours bright orange hue with a small soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is piney belgian yeast notes husky. Flavors arw piney slightly sweet very lit alcohol unrefined yet interesting. Lots of belgian malt and piney notes. Lots of sweet malts and hops with resinous undertones. Decent stuff.

Pours a dirty blonde with a big white head and a very pleasant, sweet nose with a touch of West-coast hops hiding in it. Flavor pulls off the Belgian-IPA marriage better than most, with the slightly fruity and spicy character of a tripel and the distinct floral hops of DIPA both shining through. Backside is long and warm Excellent stuff.

Bottle shared. Huge peach and passion fruit, lots of fruity hop fun, bready body, fairly dry finish. Great stuff, dangerously smooth, a proper hopbomb with a Belgian twist.
