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 hazy copper small head. Aroma is citrucy Belgium yeast with a slight banana note. Taste begium spicy yeast citrucy hop character. Pretty Good but simple.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2013
750 mL bottle - pours ruddy, cloudy, red-orange with nice, full, white head, lasting. Big fragrant aromas of candied fruit, citrus, peaches, and good yeast. Creamy plate, with decent orange fruit, numbing bitterness at the finish that fills the mouth. Long finish that continues to change. Very nice and drinkable at high ABV.

zizzybalubba (1604) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 13, 2013
750 mL bottle from Tasty Beverage Co., Raleigh, NC. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian candi sugar and light citrus hops. The sweetness hits the tongue first but then finishes with a healthy amount of pineapple and grapefruit. The booziness lingers long after each sip. Truthfully I am not a huge fan of Belgian-style IPAs for the most part. It was my error that saw this on the shelf as Triple IPA rather than Tripel IPA. However, in this case it was a nice error. Good beer.

Aroma of spice and fruit, I got pear and banana as well as a bit of the alcohol. The is a clear amber color with a light quickly dissipating head. The taste is very sweet but followed by some bitterness. There is flavor of sweet mango, and citrus and pine. The beer is medium bodied and little sticky an d flat. The beer is very interesting smells like a Belgian and tastes like an IPA. Unfortunately it is cloyingly sweet and a little too boozy for my tastes.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Hazy golden orange pour with a small ivory crown. Citrus, honey, alcohol. That’s pretty much it. Not terribly dynamic or complex. Alcohol crosses the eyes and a bit aggressive. Quick recommendation...don’t light a match! Flash fires are dangerous. Would re-approach this one.

wheresyourball (531) - El Cajon, California, USA - JUL 16, 2013
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.

hapjydeuce (972) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
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
