A beautiful golden crossbreed of a Belgian Tripel and a West Coast IPA. Combining the best attributes of each style in a remarkable way, this beer explodes with spiciness, tropical fruit, and an intense citrus bitterness that will leave you begging for more! Hopped with Warrior, Chinook, Centential, and Cascade hops.

It is definitely a Belgian IPA that hinges on the yeasty spice and esters rather than the hops.

On tap. Muted banana and floral aroma that’s a bit disappointing. Sweet banana flavor with graininess and a touch of citrus. Compared to the BA version, I’m disappointed.

[Tap] Pours a hazy golden color with a thin head. Nose is of tropical fruits, heavy wet hops and alcohol mixed in with yeast esters. Sweet taste includes lots of sugar and sweet roll notes blended somewhat haphazardly with a harsh hop bitterness. Oily texture. The alcohol content makes itself known in the finish. Call me a party pooper, but I am just not a huge fan of Belgian IPAs.

Tried at Savor 2011. Based on my notes, the beer had a nice dark orange appearance and was very well balanced between hop and malt. Wish I could get Nebraska beers around DC.

Really nice interesting brew. Had it on tap at Hawthornes in Philly. Pours a clear golden with a foamy white head. The aroma has some nice spices and a fruitiness you find in Belgians. The flavor also has the fruit but also has a bit of sourness to it. The hops are quite biting. Very refreshing with a clean dry finish.

On draft at Sugar Maple and the brewery. Pours a hazy golden with off-white head. Aroma full of belgian yeast, citrus and spicy hops. Flavor adds the sweet belgian candy notes, then finishes with crisp hops. The ABV is covered well. I’ve really enjoyed this one on several occasions.

Sampled at St. Louis Microfest 2011 - Pours hazy yellow with a white head. The aroma has sweet Belgian tripel banana esters and clove along with some spicy hops. Medium / full body with sharp carbonation. The taste has very sweet tripel maltiness, syrup, fruitiness and in the background are spicy hops and some pine. This was okay, but I was hoping for more.

Pour is a peach color with a large white head. Aroma is banana with some sugar and yeast. Flavor is more banana with some spicy hops. Kinda a big alcohol kick toward the end and finishes with some candi sugar. Ok beer and decent for a sample but woulden’t need again as its very light and watery toward the end and the alcohol is there is a big way.

Draft at International Tap House-Soulard. Pours a cloudy gold color with a centimeter-thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, banana, clove, hops, sweet malts, peach, and apricot. Flavor of tropical fruits, sweet malts, somewhat oily hops, and candi sugar. Medium-bodied, with a bitter mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Pretty interesting DIBA/Belgian Strong Ale hybrid.
