On tap. No detailed notes - entering from earlier tasting. Very strong aroma of candied fruit, more well balanced taste with a well-hidden ABV.

On tap at Roger Brown’s in Portsmouth, Va. Malty like a tripel. Lacking the real citrus character of an IPA. Pretty good, not great.

Color dorado palido, con espuma blanca densa y persistente. Aroma maltoso, levaduras y algo de citricos. En boca es compleja pasando por dulce, acidez y agradable final a lupulo.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (22 oz). Best by 09-18-15. Split 2-ways.
Appearance: Hazy-cloudy dark orangey with a medium off-white head, medium retention and good lacing.
Aroma: A lot of fruity hops along belgian yeast, medium spiciness, caramel, floral notes, perfumy presence and soap.
Taste: Rather sweet and super fruity with floral presence, caramel, spices, soap and medium bitterness.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Spicy finish. Lingering [rotten] fruits aftertaste. Perfumy. I don’t know if there’s rye in this, but it gives that impression.
Overall: Rather messy mix of a fruity belgian tripel and a sweet Imperial IPA... not much drinkable or enjoyable. The sweetness and the fruitiness are cloying. Bad idea.

Bottle; pours clear orange gold with a beige head; aroma is sweet with tropical fruits and yeast with some hop spice notes and caramel; taste is yeast with some tropical fruits with spices and faint caramel notes; finish has some hop bitterness and is dry with some faint pepper notes; I was not sure what to expect after reading the label but I really liked this one.

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.
