Chardonnay Barrel aged version. 750ml bottle only. This version of Hop God is a fascinating, big, bold Belgian-style Tripel hopped in very high amounts to concentrate citrus, grapefruit and floral aromatics in the nose. The addition of Chardonnay barrel aging adds further dimension and oak tannins to an already wonderfully complex Ale - bringing to mind tropical fruits and peach.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2015 Everything about this beer is big. The aroma, the head, the taste, the finish. Before I get ahead of myself, let me take this one step at a time. The aroma is tremendous. The Chardonnay really comes through here. The head is tight and pristine. The taste is a complex phenomenon. There’s lots of citrus in the middle of the mouth, then there’s a Belgian style fruitiness. Finally, there’s that huge hop finish with a controlled bitterness. The flavor of Chardonnay lingers on the tongue for quite some time. This is an unbelievably good offering from Nebraska Brewing Company.

750ml bottle, shared by a local rater.. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Some fine particles in the body. Thin white head, some ropes of lace. Nice chardonnay oak barrel in the nose. Some grapefruit citrus. Bigger body. Smooth, sort of soft, lighter carbonation, lightly dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light zest. Nice lighter warmth in the finish. Nice hoppy belgian strong ale. Good complexity. Enjoyed it quite a bit.

On tap at zenos. Slight haziness; bright orange/gold with white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is pear, slight peach, and some oak. Flavor is the same plus some grape and a long fairly dry finish. Impressive, interesting, unique beer.

hay, nuts, resin, grass, citrus, leaves, woody, alcohol, A solid outing from Nebraska Brewing Company. Smooth and drinkable despite the high ABV. Worth $30 a bottle? Maybe once in a while.

ken1 (1701) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2013
A fruity "belgian" aroma. Flavor is an odd mix of ipa bitterness and belgian sweetness with a dryness from the barrelaging. Color is cloudy orange with a white head.
