COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop God is 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.

When I think of good beer, I don’t think of Nebraska, but these guys did it again. Hoppy high % yet easy to take. Lemongrass, a bit yeasty and a standout citrus makes this a winner.

Pouring at GTMW 2012 Cloudy straw colored pour shispy white head. Simple aroma west coast IPA not much of the beglian coming through. Overly grassy acidic taste w/ some graham crackers in the finish. Average palate, not very good.

Sample from beerfest. Poured a hazy yellow color with a fizzy off white head. Aroma was citrus, lemon zest and pines. Flavor was pledge, lemon and alcohol. Medium body. Grassy medium body. Kind of balanced beer. Finished a little spicy and hoppy. Decent beer.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bomber. Poured deep gold with a medium-sized, fizzy white head. Aroma and flavor struck me as more Belgian tripel than IPA. I got the grapefruit hops, but there was more spiciness, fruit, and dankness. Tasty though; enjoyed it.

On tap. Hazy light orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma and taste of banana bread, grapefruit, pine, and Belgian yeast with a light fruity spiciness on the back end. Not bad.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - JUL 12, 2012
bottled. pours golden orange with a champagne like bubbliness. white foamy head. aromas of yeast, citrus and raisin. sweetness overshadowed by a moderately heavy sourness. could use more time in the bottle to mellow. medium bodied thin mouth feel lively carbonation. finish is also long and sour. finishes with a touch of bitter hops. hopefully some more bottle conditioning will bring the hops forward.

Draft at Z man at the deli. Pours Golden with a quarter inch of white foam that leaves a bit of lacing in the glass. Nice Belgian yeast aromas on the first wave. As the beer warms up I get more of the piney hop thing. The taste kind mashes up the Belgian thing and the hop thing with the hops winning. Finish has some nice bitterness to it. It’s an interesting mash up that’s mostly successful.

Rich gold pour with a perfect white head. Man this beer kicked ass. Its so deliciously hoppy and fruit at the same time. The citrus hops and perfect herbal hoppiness give way to an insane amout of juicy fruits and perfect malt balance. I was blown away by this. This brewery is fun! I need to visit.

At FWIBF. Pour is dark yellow gold and clear. Aroma is more on the Belgian side with sweetness, fruitiness and a little hop character, taste has some spice, fruit with some good citrus taste. A tasty blend of Belgian and IPA. I am a big fan of this beer.
