abby’s fault at Lancaster. Pours a very light golden mostly clear and a nice sticky head. Aroma is extreme citrus hops, lemon, orange tropical fruits, mango, phenols and tons of bubblegum yeastiness mixed with tropical fruit juicy hops. Flavor is a slight solvent like but just tons of citrus and juicy hops, bubblegum doughy yeast, bready pils malt, and crackery, with a vvery light dry clean finish and a sharp phenolic and juicy hop backbone- not too bitter. Good stuff.

eaglefan538 (2901) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Hazy golden yellow pour. Esters and piney citrus hops in the nose. Flavor follows, everything you’d want in the style, spicey elements, phenolic character, American assertive hop finish. Mouthfeel full and yeasty to an extent and just nice. Go IH WC!
Earlier Rating: 2/10/2011 Total Score: 4.1
On draft at the Newatrk location. Pour was golden with decent carbonation, could have been a tad more hazy. The aroma was strong grassy wheat, straw, and phenolic esters. The flavor followed and the grassy hops were excellent to balance out the bready, phenolic belgian tripel base. A nice touch to their normal tripel! Mouthfeel carbonated and sparkly, good stuff.
