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.

Bomber at a bottle share. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Nose is spice; flavor follows with earth, fruit, alcohol. Medium bodied. Not great.

Bottled. Deep gold color and a thick white head. Aroma of clove, pear, banana and some citrus. Belgian yeast noticeable. I can smell the cloying sweetness before I taste it. Yep. Pretty damn sweet. Flavor has notes of mango and bad rum cake. The sweetness is clashing with the hop profile. Not too sure what was intended here. Overall a bit difficult to drink. Props for trying a Belgian IPA but I think the balance needs some work.

375ml bottle. Lots of sweet malt in the nose and taste. Full bodied but hop profile is really dialed back. I like my imperial IPAs with a strong malt backbone but this is missing the hops IMO. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rodenbach99 (3135) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
Bouteille de 75cl. Bière de couleur orangée avec une mousse blanche. Au nez cette bière semble plus sucrée que houblonnée, en fait comme le dit le brasseur; il ne fait pas dans la tradition. La bouche est lourde, sucrée, trop sucrée. Elle manque de fraicheur.

Pours a three finger cream head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit nose, flavor is well balanced with caramel and grapefruit hops. High ABV is hidden but this triple IPA is warming. 750ml bottle from Gift Specialists Oceanside, California.

Amazing IPA on tap at the brewery. Aroma is of grapefruit, some spice like pepper, candied sugar and pine. Yum!

anders37 (16539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2013
Draft @ the brewery. Pours an orange color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty spicy yeasty hoppy aroma. Fruity malty spicy yeasty hoppy bitter flavor. Has a fruity malty spicy yeasty hoppy finish.

jackl (4560) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle @ The Stouts Tasting II. Ta Ken. The pour’s deep amber with a tiny head. The aroma’s peach, some farmhouse yeast. Sour patch kids. Apples. The taste is dusty white grape. More belgian yeast. Cotty candy sweetness. A bit ruddy and heavy handed. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, this wasn’t served by being consumed alongside a bunch of legitimately excellent beers.

Scopey (6661) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Bottle at THE stouts tasting part 2, thanks to Ken. It pours cloudy deep orange with a small off-white head. The nose is spice, celery, pear, apple, light tartness and icing sugar. The taste is toast, earth, hay, sweet pear, apple, banana, spice, alcohol warmth, sugar, pepper and honey with a pretty hot finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Sweet and hot are not what I’m looking for (in a beer).

Il me semble bien que les bières brassées par Iron Fist ont la même couleur. Les parfums de cette bière peuvent se résumer de cette manière : malts caramélisés, alcool et effluves d’oranges amères. Les saveurs sont définitivement collées aux arômes. Je perçois une douceur maltée et un alcool très ou trop floral. Il y a des houblons dans cette bière mais je trouve qu’ils ne sont pas au sommet de leur art. En bouche, cette bière est un peu lourde. Le pétillement est modéré. La texture est crémeuse. La finale expose un côté sucré et un côté amer. Difficile de cerner quelque chose quand tout semble être articulé autour de la confusion. Est-ce le voyage qui a été si éprouvant? Cette bière est bien bizarre.
