COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In case you’re one of the 3 people that haven’t figured it out yet, we at Iron Fist are fans of everything unfettered by and silly notions of "tradition". So our latest insurrection is a two-for. We brewed a huge Belgian style Trippel and hopped the (expletive deleted) out of it. Being the counterculturalists that we are, we decisively chose to use the finest imported European hops we could get our hands on rather than the ubiquitous West Coast style varieties. We even threw in some varieties so new they still have that new hop smell. A robust malt character helps balance this truly one-of-a-kind brew.
Brewed for KnB Wine Cellars 3rd Anniversary.

Pours a nice orange color with a white head, very citrusy aroma and flavor. Tropical fruit notes as well.

Bottle to tulip Flowers, grapefruit, resin, pine, grass, and a hint of nutmeg. Red tinged amber with a thin creamy, but mottled off white head. Lots of funky hops and bitterness right off the bat, which is then slammed with some caramelly sweetness that doesn’t quite balance with the hops. But that soon fades, leaving a lasting bitterness that grows with each sip. There’s also a vein of sourness at the end. Yes, this isn’t traditional, and it is interesting, but interesting doesn’t mean good.

Ferris (4494) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle - Sweet Belgian yeast, grass, spice and some booze. Copper with a rich beige head. Stone fruit, boozy sweetness, bittering hops and a sweet bitter finish. Not my thing.

"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."

ljthiessen (410) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle. Tons of tropical fruit aroma, some soft citrus. Flavour is an intriguing mix of Belgian yeast and big IPA hops and maltiness. Doesn't quite come together, but a tasty and intriguing beer.

bth122 (1290) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Big bottle. Poured a cloudy tan orange color. Head disappeared quite quick. Aroma of candy sugar, caramel, citrus hop. Caremark malts with some Belgium spice and some citrus hop. Kind of syrupy and old tasting. Ok. Low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mr_Hops (116) - Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Big beer. Bubblegum lemon pine and very fruity overall. Wheaty beer taste, somewhat complex. Poured from 22oz bottle from Triangle wine center. Overall enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12% really? Incredibly drinkable at that abv. Aroma has very good Belgian spice & booze. Taste is almost as clean as a saison. This one will definitely sneak up on u if u aren’t careful!

Bottle Jack purchased in Hong Kong. Thanks for the share! Rich golden colour. Aroma is honeyed yeast - smells great. Taste is ultra tangy (yeast galore) but abv well hidden. Finish is so tangy it lingers in vomit kind of way. Overall, lots of promise but difficult to get through my 250ml pour.

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
Flaske: Orange let uklar øl. Duft af gær, sprut og tørret frugt. En trippel gone bad. Et mindre mess af alkohol og humle med en gærstamme der ikke kan bære det. Ikke særlig god øl.
