COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

On tap at RnH. Pours dark yellow/brown with a medium sized bubbly white head. Aroma is almost exactly like a trippel - bread, toast, citrus, pine needles. Flavor is nice and bold with notes of oranges, brown sugar, cloves, grass. Medium bodied and good carbonation.

This is a BIG beer. Very heavy, doesn’t drink as well as it could. But hop character is very good. This is my first offering from this brewer and I like it. I’ll keep my eye out for these guys.

Pours a hazy orange/gold with a decent small bead white head. Banana and clove aroma. Taste is sweet pale malt, banana, clove and a hop bitterness that is not overdone. This is a real IIPA/Tripel combo!

Pours a hazy golden with a small white head... loads of citrus aroma, big aroma with big notes of belgian yeasts... Flavorful, dominated by belgian yeasts,with notes of citrus hops... Very dry finish... Full bodied, lively, creamy, a little spicy... Hops are very american...

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.

Growler thanks to bu11zeye. Orange pour with a small quickly receding white head, albeit great lacing. Aroma is soap, bitter, floral. Flavor was bitter hops and some fruit. Great carbonation.

On tap at Mad Mex and the better of the two Triple IPA’s on tap by a clear margin. Dark honey color, nice head, also well balanced so that both the hops and the belgian yeast compliment each other, and plenty of content. the alcohol is dangerously not obvious.

On tap at Doherty’s. Served in a tulip glass. Deep honey color. Aroma of floral and spice. Flavor is deep and sweet slightly fruity at first, with plenty of rounded bitterness on the backside. Spruce and honey notes on the finish. Complex and interesting. Very Nice.
