Draft freebie over at Henry to the J .. Vibrant gold yellow .. Foam was massive .. Belgian yeast and medicinal notes .. Boozy and a bit rough, but it was different .. . . I have a fat head.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 Bottle/Fest.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Citrus, bubblegum, wheat, slightly bitter.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, yeasty finish.
O- Meh, it’s certainly like no other tripel I’ve had and that’s not the best thing. Definitly more an IPA to me yet tons of bubblegum like a hefe.

On tap at 2015 GTMW, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head, the aroma has a good amount of hops and citrus mixed in with some belgian yeast and spice at the same time, the flavor has a hoppy front end with a lot of vanilla and fruit and spice at the same time, really interesting.

On tap at GTMW 2011, poursa clear orange with a decent amount of fruit, aroma is of citrus and pine, the flavor is pretty boring actually with some hops coming through, meh.

Absolutely splendid. Combines the best attributes of both styles. Think an exceptional IPA with Belgian yeast. This is that.

Stunning and wonderful. Solid triple, perhaps a little more sweet and less carbonated than the standard. But done perfectly well. The barrel aging adds a complexity. This is a very very good beer.

On tap at Cottonwood. Pours a cloudy orange with large thick frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong yeast, floral, citrus. Medium mouth with strong citrus, light hop, sugary malt, very good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very thick, rich head, almost like it had nitrogen rather than carbonation. The head settles slowly, leaving a dense dome in the center of the glass. Chunky but spotty lace on the glass. Cloudy liquid with a dirty gold color.
Complex aromas of creamy (lactose?) pale malts. Some Belgian yeast nose. Peppery hop, too.
Starts with a rich barley flavor. Holding the liquid in my mouth, a subtle carbonation shows up preventing the beer from getting coy. Just prior to the swallow, the alcohol is notable, oily and warming. The swallow and aftertaste is all hop and alcohol. The hop portion is bittering without any strong spiciness. In a word: Complex.
