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.

BeerandBlues2 (10784) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear copper with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and honey malt, light Sherry, pear and apple esters with light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet honey and toast, light earthy hops and bitterness, light alcohol, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Evolutionary (391) - Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Tap at local cantina. Nose is sweet malt and color is nice amber. Very sweet - too much even. Smooth and silky with little froth head. A bit of hip bite but not too much. Not very complex for a tripel. Would look elsewhere.

planky84 (2369) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle from Ales by Mail. Amber pour with a white head. Rich floral and citrus nose. Nice. Oozes booze in the flavour. Tongue tingling flavours of bitter citrus and fresh herb. Quite a throat warmer. Huge, boozy finish. Exceedingly tasty.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
UXO (816) - CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Appearance: clear pale amber with three fingers of rocky light tan head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: floral/herbal, tropical fruit, Belgian yeast, caramel/toffee malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: full and sticky body, moderate carbonation, emphatically boozy finish. (4/5) A beast that certainly does not believe in hiding its light under a bushel. Big and bombastic in every facet: big sweet, big bitter, big head, big caramel colour, big body, big booze. They call it a “Tripel/IPA”, and it certainly has aspects of both styles, but I don’t think you’d be far wrong thinking of it as a “triple IPA” in everything that really matters. (Hops and booze. What? Is there anything else?) Lacking in subtlety - but so am I, so I like this a whole bunch. Kinda reminds me of Arrogant Bastard, actually… (15/20)

djd07 (6056) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is yeast, grass, and hay. Medium mouth, boozy, yeast, earthy, honey, light bitterness, good.

ben4321 (4752) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Location: 750 ml bottle shared from State Line, 2/9/15

Aroma: Heavily Belgian nose, some spice, clove, banana, candied sugar, and some dark fruit
Appearance: A slightly cloudy orange pour with a small off-white head and some sticky lacing
Flavor: Tastes along the same lines, heavy spice, sweetness, finishes a little bitter and more spice
Palate: The body is fairly full, sticky mouthfeel, average-to-lively carbonation, and a long duration
Overall Impression: This one leans much closer to the Belgian yeast side than it does to the IPA. Heavy and sticky. If you promise in the label that you "hopped the (expletive deleted) out of it," I need more hops than this.
