3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy charnel color with pretty persistent head, yet lower than the average Belgian. Nose is cookie dough and red berries, really reminiscent of St Bernardus. Not the richest hop in smell, so the phenols play first fiddle. Taste is really nice. Good backup from crystal malt (I guess) without making the beer cloying. The hops don’t really come through in flavor but they do in bitterness. Sweet cookies, band-aid phenols and early bitterness that lasts forever - this is what this beer is all about. Medium-full bodied. Interesting interpretation of a Belgian IIPA. It’s different and a bit unbalanced since the bitterness comes out way to quick and hard.

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.

A beer suitable for a goblet glass that has a nice finish and slightly hoppy taste.

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.

Fine beer. Full of flavour, slightly boozy but not too much so. I had this one in a large bottle.

Alcohol nose, small white head. Flavor is sweet with a touch of soap. Nice texture, little toast on the finish.
