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.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a small, rapidly disappearing white head. The aroma was sticky citrus, sweet caramel, herbal notes with some alcohol coming through. The flavor had sweet caramel malt, sticky citrus, ripe fruits, earthy, with the alcohol showing a bit. I can’t really place it, but something about the combination of everything didn’t completely work for me.

Tmoney99 (10091) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured cloudy orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Very complex fruit, citrus and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer that exceeded my expectations.

Sample from a bottle, shared by Alexsdad06. Half hazy amber color. Thin off-white head, little lace. Caramel malty taste, little on the sweeter side. Bigger body, light carbonation. Hides the ABV very well. Little grainy toasty malt. A nice one to sip. Pretty impressive.

750 ml bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a cloudy orangish brown with white lacing. Smells solid; perfume, citrus, and spice. Tastes similar with a rye-ish tingle on the back of the tongue. Average on the palate. Interesting.

Whalescreams (9) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2012 does not count
Smells like a Belgian triple and its initially tastes like one but finishes with a bitterness of a dry hopped ipa. It moves from one to the other quite well with a nice balance in the middle. As I sputter out
