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.

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.

750 ml bottle split. Pours a cloudy orange color with a foamy head. Incredible sour citrus tangerine aroma that had me hooked right away. Grapefruit and citrus forward flavor with a nice belgian yeast background. Really nice balance of sour citrus and spices. What an amazing beer. Very well done. Loved it.

Rating #1082 - April 7, 2014 -Bottle from CBI - 12% Clear golden pour with a giant head with decent retention. Lots of grapefruity citrus aromas erupt out of this gorgeous brew.Taste is definitely full bodied, good yeast character, and just enough spice to be pleasant and refreshing. Generously hopped but not weightily bittered. Phenomenal.

I found this beer very quaffable. This triple IPA has a very nice golden amber coloring with a white head. The aroma is sweet, without being cloying, with a strong floral smell. The flavor is more on the malty side, and even though there is a high alcohol content, it is barely detectable. This beer finishes dry and leaves you wanting more.

Westchesterco (1108) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2014
On tap at space bar in falls church va it is a cloudy yellow orange color with a slight head. The aroma is citrus and the taste is a strong bitter grapefruit with a tart finish

Iphonephan (3637) - McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2014
On draft at Spacebar in Falls Church, VA. Pours a cloudy orange gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors ofbutterscotch and tropical fruits. Smooth, but somewhat boozy finish.

patricks110 (1776) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
Holy booze and hops. Pours a dark orange and gold with a beige finger of head. The nose has alot of caramel and toffee with big hop and citrus notes as well as Belgian esters and citrusy zest notes. The middle has mild toffee, caramel and acidic hop notes throughout. The finish is boozy and has a lingering acidic hop note that clashes with the alcohol. Not incredibly well balanced and the hops far outweigh the malts. Nice spiced notes and yeasty esters work well.

Pours a nice orange color with a white head, very citrusy aroma and flavor. Tropical fruit notes as well.

dfearnley (1079) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle to tulip Flowers, grapefruit, resin, pine, grass, and a hint of nutmeg. Red tinged amber with a thin creamy, but mottled off white head. Lots of funky hops and bitterness right off the bat, which is then slammed with some caramelly sweetness that doesn’t quite balance with the hops. But that soon fades, leaving a lasting bitterness that grows with each sip. There’s also a vein of sourness at the end. Yes, this isn’t traditional, and it is interesting, but interesting doesn’t mean good.

Ferris (5001) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle - Sweet Belgian yeast, grass, spice and some booze. Copper with a rich beige head. Stone fruit, boozy sweetness, bittering hops and a sweet bitter finish. Not my thing.

"Another beer that seemed like they just threw some shit together to see what sticks. Not bad, but not good. Really didn’t know this was a "tripel" ipa. Kinda sweet, kinda sorta hoppy. Hey - it did cover the abv exceedingly well."
