Maroon body, with a decent head. Aroma is telltale dubbel plum melanoidin with a nuanced cigar box-aged quality and the feintest note of clove. The flavor too is of plum and melanoidins with a cherry and sugar finish.

"Another beer that seemed like they just threw some shit together to see what sticks. Not bad, but not good. Really didn’t know this was a "tripel" ipa. Kinda sweet, kinda sorta hoppy. Hey - it did cover the abv exceedingly well."
