aroma: floral, resin, alcohol, caramel, apparenza: amber, orange, cloudy, minimal head, gusto: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, palato: medium body, sticky, soft carbonation, bitter, ottimo connubio fra una ipa e una tripla! prevalenza al luppolo che probabilmente col suo aroma nasconde il sentore maltato dello stile tripel che quando percepito risulta comunque inferiore alle triple belghe ma ben strutturato ed inserito in questo risultato finale. da testare bevuta all’elfo

Nice deep golden color with a big frothy head on top. Nice intense hops nose some cilantro too. Intense raw hops taste, super fresh, not unpleasant nor overhyped , flowery. Unbalanced but in a good way.

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!

dfinney23 (2170) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2015
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.

Terminus (3329) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle 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.

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
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.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Uptown, 4/22/15

Aroma: Aroma of Belgian yeast, lemon pledge, pepper, as well as some floral and grassy notes.
Appearance: The pour is golden-orange in color with a lasting sheet of beige head and light lace.
Flavor: The flavor is fairly yeasty, not much sweetness, pepper, and a lingering bitterness.
Palate: The body of this beer is medium-plus, with a little bit of booze that you mostly get in the mouthfeel, it has an average-to-lively carbonation, and eventually it has a fairly dry finish to it.
Overall Impression: This beer works pretty well. You can feel the ABV a little more here than in most in this style, otherwise, it feels fairly familiar. Definitely nicely made.
