Clear burnt gold pour with thin white head. Bananas and grassy hops on the nose. Soapy, fruity flavor...and bubblegum. Dubble bubble in fact! Hops mostly in the finish. Bitter, long lasting finish. Really complex. More triple than IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured light amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet, spicy fruit and soft malt, light yeast. Medium to full body, flavour is yeast, spicy and pretty bitterly hopped.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A lot closer to a double IPA than a tripel. Hoppy and bitter with notes of Belgian yeast in the background. Hints of wheat and pepper. An excellent beer, but a little too similar to their normal DIPA’s.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of wheat and malts. A very successful blend of styles but maybe not for me. All the elements of a great Belgian Trippel, some hop flavors but not a ton. Dark cloudy pour with some head. Would have liked more hops.

It’s a Belgian Double IPA for sure (emphasis on double IPA) at 101 IBU. A decent brewing effort, but won’t rush back to it.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz pour at the newly reopened Busters. Orange in color with solid but minimal head. Aroma is mostly sweet with a little hop. Taste follows suit leaning on malty goodness and Belgian yeast. Very nice clean finish with a hint of bitter notes. A really impressive Belgian tripel rendition.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tripel or Belgian IPA? That’s the question. All around wonderfully crafted ale, yeasty and hoppy, pours with a tripel’s high fluffy head. Deep hazy gold, light hoppy aroma, taste has stronger hop elements. Dry, chalky finish, mildly sweet.

Bomber poured into a tulip glass..hazy orange pour with fluffy white head..aroma of bread,spices,hops..tripel comes through in the initial taste,followed by the hoppiness of the IPA..another really good offering from one of my favorite breweries.
