3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Not much head, very hazy vibrant marigold hue. Lots of tripel notes in the aroma with light fruit notes and spice along with vanilla hints. The bitterness does come in but it’s very grassy and almost gin bitter in some respects. Medium to lighter body with ok carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Moriartys. Clear amber brown with red and gold highlights. Poured in a tulip. Produced a large frothy bright white head that left unusual Styrofoam-looking lace. Sharp taste up front of a strong resin floral drenched in dark caramel. Some dark amber fruits in the background. Sugar cane. Tangerine peels. Pineapple cores. Heart of palm. Pink grapefruit. Barley sugar clear toys. Burnt oranges. Anbesol. Varnish. Autumn leaves. Apricot pits. Sweet, but well balanced with a lot of bitter hoppiness. Feels like a bright sharp Barleywine. Great stuff!

Lots of earthy hoppiness, like onion and gardens. Flavor had a great floral Belgian quality that worked well with the stew-like hops. Balanced, beautiful tasting. Sampled at the second annual East Nashville Beerfest.

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.

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!

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.
