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.

I’m usually not a fan of Belgian IPAs but I heard great things about this beer. Turns out there is diamond in the rough when you look for it. This beer had a great citrus hop aroma that worked very well with the Belgian yeast character. Taste was awesome, way too easy to drink for 12% ABV. Definitely picking up a few more bottles.

Bottle at Chris and Ruth’s Shindig 2015. Slightly hazy golden beer with a rich offwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma, caramel, bready, hay, some fruits. Fruity malty flavor, grassy, boozy, hay, floral notes. A bit too strong for me, but with some nice touches.

Evolutionary (408) - 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.
